Actually, to be honest I am surprised. If we were talking about an award or a big pay day, I wouldn't be shocked at all. A dinner invitation though? That's just going out of your way to be petty. They didn't do anything wrong. I'm not surprised Arum won't promote them the way they deserve. I am surprised that they're so disliked that they don't even get an invite. I mean, at the end of the day, they're coming off of the two most impactful victories of any fighter on HBO.
O yea and what about Maravilla?
Those wins didn't just impact the boxing world, they impacted Hbo and not in a good way. Those two guys just beat three of hbos biggest draws and more entertaining fighters (pac, nonito, marquez). Like I said its no surprise they weren't invited to an Hbo dinner.
As for martinez I'm pretty sure Hbo doesn't like him much either but swallowed their pride since dude was on a ko streak and makes for good fights.. I fully expect them to throw him under the bus when he comes back healthy and is about to fight one of their prized guys like cotto, ggg, or a chavez rematch.
