HBO has been slipping for a while now. Realistically, they have had 2 good non-PPV fights in the past year plus: Rios-Alvarado and Guerrero-Berto.

Kissing up to Haymon and putting his stable of fighters in easy matches has proven to be a poor decision. The quality of their fights has been slipping and it didn't even help them keep Floyd.

The HBO statement around "the next stable of fighters" is concerning. That unfortunately indicates they will continue to try and look for stars as opposed to building them thru good matchups.

They need to try and make the best fights they can and not put up with easy matchups for guys they "think" will be stars. Hershman did that at Showtime. Why can't he do that at HBO? Good matchups create buzz for the winners and sometimes even the losers. Let a fighter show us he is good. Don't just tell me he is.

I think Paulie's more insightful than Roy to be honest, or maybe just more consistent. Roy has bad nights.

Mayweather is in the twilight of his career. HBO will survive. Awesome for Showtime and CBS though. Big boost for boxing in general.

While I think competition is always good, Showtime and HBO don't seem to function under the laws of economics. It would be cool if both networks expand their budgets, but most likely it would just lead to them overpaying fighters even more instead of having more fights per year.
