Default Boxing on CBS in Ten Minutes

Make sure to tune in. Boxing needs good numbers. This could be the start of something much bigger. Boxing back on free tv.

Agreed. Greedy DLH should have spent some money to make this much bigger. The 3 fight showtime card could have been on, and even allowed Brits to watch Khan at a decent time.

Plus American HW 27-0 27ko Wilder. Big, ripped, personable HW. Couldn't have been a better guy to start the CBS show with.

I agree the whole card should be shown to make it more of an event. I think the biggest injustice to this card is the start time. 1:30pm I mean College Basketball has for years been played this time. Imagine if they switched UFC on Fox to the same time this card happened Dana White would have never allowed it. Why would Oscar even agree to this.


Atrocious.

Atrocious.
Boxing promoters don't understand the importance of timeslots. That's why they allow themselves to be shoved into terrible timeslots like on Friday and Saturday night, the worst nights for TV. I mean it's boxing AFTER DARK. You're pretty much setting yourself up for instant low ratings ... but it sounds bad ass so they do it all the same.

If Golden Boy wants to use a Hispanic boxer its certainly okay but why not offer an undefeated heavyweight like David Rodriguez or Andy Ruiz against former U.S. Olympian and undefeated Deontay Wilder.....at least general American sports fans can relate to heavyweights.....and its the general fans that CBS is trying to lure. .....The network will be looking for ratings results and how many sports fans tuning in who live in Boston, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Seattle or Minneapolis gives a damn about a 118 pound fight featuring a Mexican-American from California and a Mexican......Golden Boy is either arrogant or ignorant to use this as the inagural bout.
