Default Re: Even though Floyd has jumped ship, all is not lost HBO...

It is sad to see HBO go to shit pretty fast. Hopkins will retire after Cloud I'm guessing.

Rigo
Rios
Donaire
Marquez
Pacquiao

Shame most are old. Ward is the savior of HBO

They're going to have to stick Ward and Broner on PPV pretty soon else the arse is going to fall out of HBO's boxing budget. Problem is, who's going to pay to watch Broner or Ward.

They'll still have PPV's in Sergio vs. JCC Jr. II in the fall. Pacquiao vs. JMM V or whoever in winter? There is no one for Ward to fight in the summer, let alone on a PPV, so I don't see HBO doing a PPV until the fall.

I mean turn them into PPV stars. Someone who's going to fill the void of 1.3-1.6 millions PPV sales left by Floyd and Manny.

Yeah they're in trouble filling that void.

Source? Other than comments here, there's nothing to support this. Sure, GBP is working more with Showtime lately due to their connections with Espinoza and a sudden willingness to open their wallet, but if anything, Mayweather signing with Showtime makes it more likely Broner will stick with HBO. They'll be more willing to overpay to keep him. They'll promote him more as their top guy. And he wouldn't be the brand fighter if he moves.

Not Ward's fault that he makes his rivals look so bad.

HBO needs to show Froch vs Kessler so they can build Andre Ward up for a future showdown. Maybe get Bute vs Pascal aswell.

Agreed.

Hopefully HBO steps up and creates a true rivalry between the networks. This would be a nice start. Froch vs. Kessler 2 should be a great fight.

Idiots like you shared similar comments about Mayweather when he was rising. "He can't draw flies to shiz!", "He's boring!, no way he generates shitttt" all the way to the classic "Marquez' fan-base generated all the PPV buys, no wai hellllll May sells that much!". Look where he is now.
