Supposedly it's free entrance for the Leo Santa Cruz fight and they are doing some charity toy thing.

I remember boxing had an unofficial season, in 1970's and 1980's. It would run on tv a lot in April and May, on CBS and ABC, sometimes NBC too. Baseball was in early season, Football and basketball were over, so every weekend there would be at least one, sometimes two or three good fight one. So on saturday a Pazienza or Leanard fight might show, on Sunday we might get some top middleweights on, Like Mugabi vs James (Hard Rock( Green. Duran was on a lot for free in 1970's.

What promoters have gone away from is the free tv bouts that showed fighters frequently, and built interest in them. Duran became big star not just on talent, but on all the fights CBS showed all through 1970's--vs. Lampkin, Fernandez, Bizzzaro. DeJesus.....by 1980 people were ready to go to stadiums to watch pay -per-view on giant screen to see him fight Ray Leonard, who also was built up by being on free tv all through pro career., starting after Olympics. It was god for sport, good for fighter,s great for fans. Making people pay $29.99 to see a pair of bantamweights fight every few months on some cable channel, or having every Mayweather fight cost over $50 is no good for fans or sport. Hopefully, they are starting to get back to free tv fights.

this is great news. one step closer to bringing boxing back to network tv. and they couldn't have found a more tv friendly fighter unless it was rios, or maidana.
