I would like to see Terence Crawford step up in competition and eventually catch the tail end of this 140lbs madness that is going on right now....in about a year or so.

I think Juan Diaz, who just signed with TR, would be a good test for TC at lightweight. Or perhaps a fight with Gamboa

Are we really at the point where we are picking sides between promoters?

Fans need to understand, that it would be so much better for the Fans and Golden Boy if they got back on the good graces of HBO. GBP pretty much shot themselves in the foot. They went Showtime exclusively even before HBO gave them the boot. As you said, it hurts GBP with lack of dates, and smaller budget combined with a good stable of fighters.



Lol of course it does, it's a Showtime PPV. Who do you think is doing all the production? Why do you think they made that Canelo fight happen so fast? They lost money with the Guerrero PPV. But I'm sure the Canelo fight helped them recoup.

I could care less who is promoting the fight, just give me good matchups. That's all I care to see.

They'll have to continue air boxing events with multiple big names. There's no way they can set up all those PPV's, regardless of which network it is.

Prime Mike Tyson would have KO'ed 2003 Roy Jones Jr. and Prime Wladimir Klitschko.

Fight Night has spoken, thus it is

And the Alien>>>the Executioner as far as in ring entertainment value goes.

He toyed around with a bum(dude was gassed out in the 9th!), with the occasional flurry here and there. He was all hugs and lunging headbutts vs Chad Dawson though, his last legitimate loss in which he looked awful. The good thing is he can keep fighting bums and prolong his careeer becase what other 175 fighter on showtime is relevant? Even at 168?? They are all on showtime, and even the Carl Frochs and Kovalovs dont want anything to do with Showtime, they want to be on HBO.
