A fair and honest explanation of the situation....it also explains why hopkins-dawson was ppv

myself, i like the way bute and froch are going...they make the fight regardless of hbo or showtime because they can sell tickets...(of course the fight will be picked up by british tv)

Foch v Bute was picked up by Epix. Not exactly HBO Or Sho, but it's getting American TV. Although US TV is not as important in that fight as it will get big Canada TV as well as UK TV.

Why? Cuz Mr. Prozac always overestimate the PPV number. Probably Brandon was gonna generate 500k PPV by himself.

2nd reason? And cuz he can.

Hopkins vs. Dawson I was different though. HBO simply just ran out of money, that's why the first fight was on PPV.

don't know why the **** people comparing that card situation to Hopkins vs Dawson a fight that was in demand between the two best LHW showtime and HBO would have bought that fight if the timing was right. Rios vs Abril was a **** fight had it been Rios vs lets say Alvarado then networks would've put up the money for it.

fights like Rios vs Abril and Cotto vs Mayorga don't need to happen its not like Toprank had no options they just insist on putting their big names in mismatches look what they been doing to Cotto, Pacquiao, Donaire, Chavez Jr, Juanma and so on ...
