By Rick Reeno

Michael Koncz, the adviser for WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, has confirmed our earlier report that Pacquiao's upcoming pay-per-view fight against Shane Mosley, which takes on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - is heading to Showtime/CBS.

Koncz, speaking with BoxingScene/FanHouse's Lem Satterfield, acknowledged our initial information , which detailed the big advantage presented by Showtime's ability to televise a multi-part series that is equivalent to HBO's 24/7 - on CBS.

CBS has the ability to reach 115 million homes compared to HBO's 28 million homes.

"We've worked with HBO for many, many fights, and it's always great working with them. But, you know, sometimes change is good for everybody involved. So we're making that change and we're going on Showtime this time," said Koncz.

"It's a big benefit for us, economically, and he's going to be getting wider viewership. It's a different platform for us, and I think that it's important to have a different platform. It's going to take it out of the regular pay-per-view audience because we have a lot of options with the network."

Hbo pretty worried right now. If pac-mosley fight does well in PPV, theres a chance all pac fights in the future will be on showtime. Top rank earns more than the offer made by hbo. This has become a nightmare to HBO. TO say they dont care is idiocy! Pac will boost showtimes earnings until he...

I really like this move only cause HBO needs to chill the *uck out! They have been way to involved with the sport trying to say who fights who and if not they won't televise things, this is a way to show them we done need them they the sport, if all of the PAC, Floyd and other superstar fights w...

[QUOTE=LMFAO]The next Flop Stank smoke and mirrors trick will be taking their dancing doggie Poochiao to fight overseas after this fight bombs. Mark my words. Manny's next bum fight will be "overshadowed" by the 'glitz and glamour' of Manny fighting in foreign lands like another legend Muhamme...
