Default FNF has been kicking HBO's ass in quality fights lately

And they're doing it with not even a 10th of their budget. That's saying something.

FNF goes very well with the budget it has. Unfortunately I can't say the same for HBO this year as they continue to overpay for mediocre fighters and fights. Call it 'the Hayman effect'.

Al Hayman is tight with Kerry Davis and also has a stable of muscial talent like Beyonce that he can use as leverage with HBO. Hayman's fighters get preferential treatment and it is hurting HBO, and in turn, hurting boxing.

And it probably would have been four in a row if Berrios hadn't pulled out of the fight with Dirrell. That would have been an interesting fight.

Wow, lemme just go ahead & educate. ESPN usually always have more exciting fights than hbo. HBO simply shows the star fighters in action. Fighters on espn are usually boxers without a star pedigree with something to prove. Or former hbo or showtime stars that have been kicked by the network. You want consistant action fights watch espn, you want to see star fighters watch hbo.

FNF's & showbox are the 2 best boxing series on tv in America.

Nah, first of all non of these fighters wore tight spandex shorts, secondly there wasnt anywhere near enough blood. Thirdly those fights went on for aggggggggges, the actual action part of fights needs to go on for about 5 seconds the rest of the time they need to be hugging on the floor so i can go out and get crisps/beer.

Because fighters on FNF are either

1) Upcoming prospects who fight 10 times a year before getting their big break on HBO/SHO

or

2) Past their prime dudes or dudes coming off loses who got dropped by HBO/Showtime.

The reason that there isnt more exciting fights on HBO is because Al-Haymon is a criminal who uses blackmail and bribes to get his ***** fighters tons of money despite none of them having any fans/media power, thus ensuring that HBO has no more money for other fights so they cancel abunch of dates and make fights like DAWSON-BHOP on PPV.

Cuz Al-Haymon sez "pai my byms da chedda homie befo da Al-Haymon twins kill yo family cracka ass cracka"

Word on the street is that HBO execs will die if they dont pay Al-Haymon his extortion money.
