Re: Why is HBO airing Bradley-Provodnikov?
If this weren't a WBO title match (yes, the WBO being the most weakly regarded org among the four majors - but their recent welter lineage includes: Margarito, Williams, Quintana, Cotto, & Pacquiao...so in this division at least they are legit) I'd say this ought not be on HBO but ESPN2. It would be downright ridiculous to have it on HBO.
Being that it actually is, I'd say it ought be on HBO WCB and not ESPN2 FNF. It would be downright ridiculous to have it on ESPN2. (although they have set precedent of late with a couple of world title bouts...)
