I thought PPV was a symbol of signficance not mediocrity. Is this the only way to finance fights these days?

Whats wrong with boxing?

It has all to do with a business model. Since this fight is weak as you say, HBO and Sho will not pick it up. Thefefore, why not put together a cheapo production and charge some money. I think promotors figure that this route is more profitable than trying to put it on FNF etc.
