Bradley has shown he is willing to mix it up occasionally now so I'm looking for an entirely different fight. Hoping, hoping anyway.

But he had to sign a contract extension with Top Rank. Hopefully it's only for this year.

I mean, he really has no options at 147. JMM II or Bradley-Pacquiao III, that's it. I would have left for Golden Boy, than he could have fought Mayweather.

HBO has a bigger boxing budget to market fights than Showtime.

I doubt Pac and Bradley are anxiously awaiting to flee to Golden Boy as people believe.

That all changed last year.


Charlo really impressed me tonight. I thought it would have been a very close fight, but Jermell beat Rosado's ass. He performed better than Love and champ Peter Quillin did vs. Gabe. I see a similar performance by his brother vs. Carlos Molina is March.

Jermell should be getting a title shot vs. the winner of Andrade/Rose or whenever the WBC Belt is vacated by Mayweather.

Jennings vs. Mike Perez will be next, both HBO fighters.

Wilder is fighting Malik Scott next. Than that winner vs. Stiverne/Arreola II.

Floyd won't fight any legit threat.

What has changed? HBO still has the bigger boxing budget than Showtime. HBO still has more subscribers. Aside from Mayweather, HBO fighters get paid more. Tim's trainer said if the money is right, they would be willing to sign an extension. Obviously the offer must have been pretty good and they signed.

Of course they have a bigger budget, they are the much bigger network. But that will start to dwindle down and it started last year.


The biggest names at Top Rank are Manny, Chavez Jr, Bradley and Mikey Garcia. GB's biggest names are Canelo, Broner, Danny Garcia and B-Hop.


A non-Top Rank fighter with HBO is GGG. I think his biggest payday was 800,000. Andre Berto, a non-Golden Boy fighter gets paid over a Mill when he fights. And GGG's next fight which is next week wont even be on HBO, show's how much HBO's loves him, lol.


Unless Bradley has guaranteed fights with Pacquia and Marquez, I think the extension was dumb. Other than those 2, he has no one else to fight. Manny did not sign an extension with Top Rank.
