Also, apparently now they consider January of 06 "classic".

I'd like them to show more Hagler and Duran fights. Maybe something called 70's slugfest that shows the highlights from some of the best ko's for each decade.

As it is now It's pretty much like Amy said. Ali all day. With some commercials inbetween.

Worse when they have a commercial with Ali in it.

Well dont complain, Ali and Tyson loveds there personal channel. You be lucky to even see Ali fights. You should be thinkful that they air the Ali fights over and over again. It makes ClayII very happy.

They can begin with the golden era of the 130 lb division (WBC version of course) Arguello-Escalera 1 thru Chacon-Boza 2.

Then they can switch to 175 and the classic brawls of Saad and Galindez and throw in the Harding-Andries trilogy for good measure.

That would make for a nice start...

True, they show that once a month. There a bit slow on the gun in regards to that fight.

When showing Ali fights they have rules

1 rule 1. NEVER, and I mean NEVER show a fight Ali lost. So no Fraizer 1 or Norton 1 or Spinks 1. But do show the Holmes fight to show people why we should feel sorry for Ali. It would ruin this Ali worshipped stuff.

2 When your not showing a nornal Ali fight, show a classic fight like Foreman or Fraizer 3. And than do it day in and day out lol.

3, make sure Ali gets more screen time than Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Ray Robison or Jack Dempsey COMBINE. Only show thsos other fights when the monkey eats one of the Ali tapes by mistake.

and 4. After the Ali fight, we must bow down and prey to the great Ali god for having the Honor of watching his fights over and over again.

Showing more of the older stuff would be the start imo. pre 1930's would be a good start.

It all has to do with name recognition.We live in a name-driven society where someone like Paris Hilton becomes famous and nobody really knows why. But we all know the name. Everyone knows Muhammad Ali & Mike Tyson. ESPNC isn't geared for hardcore fans like those on this board. It's geared for casual watchers who may tune into another Tyson or Ali program but who won't bother to check out Zarate-Zamora. Thank god for YouTube where you can see many of the greats ignored by mainstream TV.
