Post Comments Thread For: CNN Reports Zaveck-Berto Still On In Storm-Riddled Biloxi

By Jake Donovan - Amidst its coverage of Tropical Storm Lee, CNN remembered to serve as a partner to HBO.

The 24-hour news station reported Saturday afternoon that tonight’s telecast of HBO’s Boxing After Dark at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Miss. is still on as scheduled, despite the area – along with the rest of the Gulf Coast – still feeling the ravaging effects of Tropical Storm Lee.

“We are still open for business,” reported Biloxi spokesman Vincent Creel when asked how the local casinos were affected by the incoming storm. “HBO is still in town for tonight’s welterweight fight (between Jan Zaveck and Andre Berto). There is still heavy downpour and local street flooding, but it is believed that we might have seen the worst of the storm.”

HBO is owned by Time Warner, CNN’s parent company. [Click Here To Read More]

Yeah I have to admit, the first thing that came to mind when I saw the blurb on CNN was that they have a built in excuse for yet another Berto fight not drawing any paying customers.

Im guessing the promoters will use the old trick of giving away all the tickets available for free to people in the street/bars/radio stations just so they fill the place up and they make some money from the booze that they buy. Even with that, how many will show up? Why is this fight in Biloxi. Berto hasnt fought there or even lives there.

This fight shouldve been in
1) Europe
2) Las Vegas
3) California

in that order, if they wanted it in USA then fine, go to Nevada where they have a normal commision to reduce chance of fishy judging and reffing.

But Mississippi? Am I missing something here? Where was berto born? Where was Al-Haymon born? Why Mississippi

European judging and refereeing makes Don King look like Jesus.
