Who has the stronger upcoming schedule, HBO or Showtime?

I think Showtime has the better, more high profile macthes.

Mayweather/Guerrero
Alverez/Trout
Lamont Peterson/Lucas Matthysse
Paulie Malignaggi/Adrien Broner
Garcia/Judah

or

Martinez/Murray
Jean Pascal/Lucian Bute
Mikkel Kessler/Carl Froch
Chad Dawson/Adonis Stevenson
Gennady Golovkin/Matthew Macklin

I agree but Pascal/Bute, Kessler/Froch, and Golo/Macklin are guaranteed awesome fights in my eyes, some of the ST fights could be one sided...

I love to see Pacman wins another title in the 140 lbs Division. The winner needs to fight Lucas Mattyhse in 2014.

Man Manny is going to kill Alvarado in my opinion. Good choice though, it allows Manny to get a KO and get his confidence back up in a very entertaining fight.

Not really a big boxing fan. More of a MMA guy. But I just watched this documentary called 'The Last Round' about the fight between George Chavalo and Muhammad Ali. Pretty awesome...check it out!

Carson Jones wants to fight Devon Alexander. He gave Kell Brook a very competitive fight last year.
