No...they are editing the fights, just much less than in the past. And for the ull fight, you can watch on Thursday, as they said at the end of the show.

I would like to see that full fight. It ws not pretty, but it would still be interesting to see how it unfolded in the normal way.

Fellas...you gotta stop complaining. They have made a lot of solid changes. And if you want to see the fights without edits or sound effects, you can on Thursday.

It adds drama, and it's helping to get boxing out to a bigger audience, I'll take it any way I can get it... atleast the option is there to see the full fights later.

The only thing that sucks is how everyone on the show is talking how Max won the first round, but the footage they showed was mainly of Soliman landing and Max not landing at all. Poor editting more than anything though, and sucks them not replaying the KD or the headbutt.

Soliman did what I thought he would, he outworked and out.. umm.. awkwarded the younger kid... but I gotta say that I think Sam is on the borderline of being shot-ish, and he's leaving himself way more open than he used to, and his reflexes are going slightly away... I see him getting brutally KO'd the next time he takes on a top 5 guy... but he can still win this show.

If they don't edit it each episode will be like 1 hour 20 minutes, don't think 1 program will be allowed all that time unless it's a movie being aired.

Besides you can just go on boxrec and see who won every fight before they even air.
No you can't. During the fight I looked up Alexander to see if it was the same one I've seen fight before and it didn't have the result of the fight.

Not really, 5rds x 3 mins + 4 breaks.. that's 19 mins, add in decision plus pre-fight and you're only at 22mins, that's with commercial breaks because of the in-between round time.

30min pre-fight, 30min for the fight. Perfect, just wish they'd use it.

Which is what they are using on Thursday!! Damn man. if they made this FNF, then no one other than those on this board would watch. They have this version, which a lot of people seem to respond to, and now a version just like what you described on Thursday!

I agree with the time involved they could show the whole bout and as for the boxrec thing nothing shows. Only contender season II had the results on boxrec the same night of the taping.

They need to change the format for the episodes. They should drop the challenges and focus more on the boxing matches.
