Default GB trying to sabotage network deals before they start?

This thing about putting the undercard to a terrible Khan fight on CBS strikes me as nothing but sabotage. It's been pretty obvious for a while now that GB isn't really too gone on getting boxing back onto a major network, and it's probably fair to say they'll do what they can to keep the sport on HBO and Showtime which are the two highest payers. If boxers start getting drafted by other networks, the promoters start losing out on cash big time.

This would apply to GB especially since they essentially own Showtime at this stage and they're trying to build a franchise on it. Using Oscar logic I don't see why they would even want boxing to appear on another network. They'd only be creating new rivals. So long story short, GB will give CBS these undercard fights, probably some of the cheapest and stingiest ones they could throw their way, then when it fails to get good ratings, Oscar can cross his arms and pretend they tried.#

At least Duva has set up the best fight she could with her stable of boxers. I don't expect much from it either but compared to what GB is doing Adamek-Cunningham looks like Mayweather vs Pac. I'm still thinking TR and GB will find some way to interfere with that. I'm telling you, those guy don't want boxing to do well on other networks. If it does well they're only going to lose out on money from the cable networks.

All said and done GB are setting up a show they expect to bomb, and when it fails they'll cross their arms and say "oh well we tried." Low ratings here will guarantee CBS don't come looking for show number 2 and GB know this. The demand for boxing to return to network TV will also die down some as boxing fans, being the gullible plebs they're known to be, will be too ashamed when nobody tunes in to see Amir Khan's undercard fight.

Something like that but they have their own interests independent of each other

They'll probably try and use CBS to feed into Showtime subscriptions. They want to be the top premium cable channel that overtakes HBO.

This has nothing to do with CBS owning Showtime. They operate independent of each other.
