Default ESPN : Showtime cancels New Years Eve Card.

Been told @SHOsports has canceled the Dec. 31 #boxing card.
Apparently, didn't want Campillo as replacement for Erdei (which makes no sense)

I'm quite surprised @SHOsports wouldn't accept Campillo in place of Erdei. That tells me Showtime just didnt want to do the show.

I really feel campillo should be a beltholder at 175, he is a threat and is avoided because of it, finally a guy wants to fight him in what would be a great test for cloud and showtime rejects it, then postpone it put it on another card.

Disappointing news, but you kind of knew it would happen when Erdei pulled out. I was looking foward to the main event, was an interesting styles mix between two top 10 light heavies. I wasn't really interested in the co-feature it felt like a fairly dull match up but a good main event on New Years Eve was nice.

Showtime has done a lot of great things for boxing fans lately but this isn't one of them.

Face it, only hardcore fans were watching this card anyway. And only the hardcore know either Erdei or Campillo. And I was looking forward to Ramos-Rigo too. I would have watched that fight by itself.

Rigo hasn't fought in ages and looks like he won't be for another while, it's not good being so inactive
