Actually it's take a leaf out of Showtime and SKY Sports(now-post ******) book . Neither sign deals other than for single cards and because of that the quality of the boxing is top notch .

HBO signing deals with fighters is a way of guaranteeing the big fights as Showtime can't buy that big fight if the fighters are contracted to HBO . But because of that HBO do have to put on their fair share of crap when they can't match a fighter into a good fight .
