    Really curious what the PPV numbers were. I feel like this had a lot of casual interest but not a lot of "willing to drop $50" interest...and certainly the vast majority of the diehard boxing fanbase would have scoffed at spending big money on essentially just the Arias vs. Hurd and Jack vs. Colina fights.

    Floyd's set either way, had 10mil guaranteed before his 50% of the PPV shares but Logan was really depending on high sales to supplement his purse. He only got $250k guaranteed, plus 10% of shares. If not that many people bought it he could end up with a good deal less than his projected 20 million boasts. (and likewise Floyd short of his own hundred million estimation)

    It was an exhibition it wasn't a real fight. He did it for big money. Of course I want to see big fights I want the biggest Spence-crawford to. I'm looking forward to Spence-pac to but what I said was true and it doesn't make me any less of a boxing fan.

    Fair point. But It's hard to ko someone who's much bigger and stronger than you who holds and ties you up that prevents you from punching in the clinch.

    Floyd might have clinched Pac as much as Paul clinched him.

    :deal:

    i dislike floyd as much as anyone i found his style boring and unbearable to watch except for 2 or 3 fights. but the people using this against him are a joke .. hes 44 and retired for years.. plus its a exibition. grow up it doesn't make his pro career any less or make him lose goat status at 147 in his era.

    What made the fight worst was the commentary. I had to mute tv. It was a bunch of guys who had very little knowledge of boxing talking out of their ass and making very lame jokes.

    One thing I did forget. Another reason Floyd couldn't get the stoppage yesterday is because Logan was not trying to win the fight he was just trying to survive unlike Conor who actually came to win. It is very hard for a much smaller guy to KO a much bigger guy who doesn't really want to fight you.

    Yeah, and on a Showtime branded event, not Triller or some other upstart. :shakehead: Say what you will about HBO Boxing's twilight days, they went out with the same dignity and professional broadcast standards as ever.

    Mayweather dominated the fight. Great to see that skills still over come physical assets.

    Spot the glaring mistake



    If your answer is no Usyk you win a cookie

    The order is all wrong too but not including Usyk should be a capitol offence

    Yeah like I said the order is all kinds of messed up.
