Mayweather Says Espinoza The Perfect Piece Against HBO

By Luke Furman

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) says the best move that Showtime ever did was hire Stephen Espinoza to run their sports programming. Espinoza replaced the departing Ken Hershman, who left Showtime to run HBO's sports division. Mayweather made his Showtime debut in May with a twelve round decision over Robert Guerrero. He returns on September 14th against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs). 

"I want to say this, the right move was putting [Stephen Espinoza] at the pinnacle of Showtime. This guy [Espinoza] plays chess. You can have all of those pieces over there [at HBO], all I need is the pinnacle piece. And everything will fall into place like dominos," Mayweather said.

Mayweather grew his career on HBO, but says he technically never left the network because he was never under contract. He does have a long term contract with Showtime.

"People say I left HBO. How could I leave when I didn't have a contract with HBO?  I've been fighting on HBO for years without a contract," Mayweather said.

[QUOTE=damned1974;13561657]If by better,do you mean a mismatch? Mayweather-Canelo offers a potential value that Rios/Pac doesn't...hell,Pac wouldn't ever consider facing Canelo even at a catchweight...and if Floyd took a fight with Rios,he would be torn apart and scrutinized-rightfully so!
