sometimes things have to get worse to get better. hbo might realize that its time to completely boycott haymon like arum has. hbo's only real chance is to ally themselves with other promoterse as well as use this vacuum of gbp fighters to promote a more international brand of boxing.

HBO (Home Buttocks Office) should show Klitschko fights, plus, Boytsov, Pulev, Price, Fury, etc., Vitai Vs. Arreola was the highest rated boxing even for HBO of the year!!!!!!!

I hope you're right. I also hope that after the way HBO treated Marquez with PED fingerpointing, that he insists to Arum that a 5th Pacquiao fight can only be made if Showtime does the broadcast.

Would be poetic justice to see the biggest known fighters all bail on the joke thats become HBO!
Thank you. HBO are the biggest hypocrites on earth. Pacquiao has been suspected of using PEDS for YEARS and in all that time we haven't heard a peep about it from HBO. Lo and behold, Marquez hires a S&C coach then proceeds to KO Pacquiao - now all of a sudden PEDs are a problem and the sport needs to be cleaned up.

Yeah, if I were Marquez, no way in hell would I fight on HBO ever again...

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.

VERY GOOd valid point makes total sence floyds paving a way for his lil homie to get star treatment an pass the torch 4 him as the new hbo star as him and ward are going to have to fly the flag now for americans.

Ward is pretty good for sure. HBO should try to sign David Price and Tyson Fury. The Americans will like Fury because he talks trash and Price goes for the KO.

HBO will show Klitschko fights. They just need to fight risky fights. Your not going to get on HBO fighting bullshit fights like Mormeck. You can look for Price and Fury to be on HBO soon but I don't think you will see Wlad on there anymore.

Why the hell would they sign Boytsov and Pulev? There both untested cans.
