Damn kinda feel bad for Showtime. That crappy HBO card featuring Dawson got about 340k+ more viewers than the stellar SHO card featuring Maidana-Lopez.

Not only that but Forbes reported that Showtime lost $12M from that last Maywether PPV. They did so much promotion for that fight that I doubt they expected it to be a flop. Make sense why we are seeing the Canelo fight so soon as opposed to next Cinco de Mayo or after Canelo has one or two more fights to build more buzz.

They're going to have to think long and hard about putting Floyd up against somebody like Devon Alexander. I know many fans like to say Floyd doesn't need anybody to sell a fight but Showtime sure does need Canelo for Floyd. And perhaps a Pacman fight before the contract ends just so they can break even or possibly profit. Not even Floyd's fault but there just isn't many big money fights out there besides Canelo or Manny.

Floyd will get paid regardless, but will be interesting to see what Showtime does from here on out because they're in the hole right now.
