after initially thinking Mattyesse would win I am now predicting a Peterson decision.

Mattyesse had a hard time getting into the country and was delayed. Which could cause him to start out slow.

I don't think Mayweather can sell that fight. His numbers can a little low vs Guerrero so I think he's going to need someone that casual fans know.

The Guerrero numbers didn't end up being as bad as initially reported. Showtime is saying they're "definitely" over 1 million buys. For a relative no-name like Guerrero (to general sports fans), that's not bad.

Not to mention Paulie is great at marketing his fights. Those 24/7s (or the Showtime version) would be epic.

Yeah, the Paulie/Broner clash might do as good as Canelo/Trout.

Here's hoping that Broner beats Paulie and Devon beats that purdy dude he's fighting.

Paulie also said a week or 2 ago that Floyd Mayweather is the greatest boxer of all time and that he would pick him to win in a fantasy match agaisnt anyone including Sugar Ray Leonard and Sugar Ray Robinson.

Theres no point in making a fight like that happen when Paulie pretty much admitted himself he has no chance of winning.

Lmao please god don't let Floyd vs Paulie happen. Does nothing for Floyd except give him more money and some extra sparring time.

Showtime is about to put on another stellar night of Boxing, this is four weeks in a row. Starting with Canelo/Trout, than Garcia/Judah, Mayweather/Guerrero PPV and not Peterson/Matthysse tonight.

People actually think they are losing with Mayweather doin under 1 million buys. They are actually winning big time in the long run with Mayweather (and Golden Boy) on the Showtime team. Showtime's viewership has gone through the roof this year.

Their biggest fight last year I'm guessing was Cotto/Trout.

Yeah I love that now we have two major boxing budgets like we did in the 90s, that means more great fights.

Showtime will eventually break even with all the very good ratings their fights are getting and the more boxing subscriptions they're getting. I love it man.
