    I hate when ESPN, FOX & SHO have a card full of unknowns or should I say unknowns to casuals, of course the numbers are gonna suck. It’s not even worth the article. People aren’t tuning in because these cards get little to no promo or the general public has no idea who the fighters are. The only people who tuned into this were die hard boxing enthusiasts, which is also pretty sad but whatever.

      Bad numbers, GREAT show! Ancajas vs. Rodriguez was on FIRE! GREAT performance by Boots!

        The entire card was all action but I agree Boots isnt widely known. It was a good night for boxing whether you watched ESPN or Showtime. I personally watched the Showtime card occasionally flipping to ESPN but either way it was a good fight night in general.

          The entire card was awesome. The numbers dont reflect the performance at all but Boots is still not a global name so no suprise with the numbers

              Real or Not: Jaron Ennis deserves a title fight at welterweight

              Rothstein: Yes, Ennis deserves a shot at this point, but not against either Terrence Crawford or Errol Spence. Ennis' shot should come against WBA title holder Yordenis Ugas (or, I guess, Jamal James depending how you view the different world titles within the WBA -- but that's another conversation for another day).

              Ennis (27-0, 25 KO) has consistently knocked out his opponents whenever he steps into the ring, including a sixth-round knockout of Sergey Lipinets on Saturday night. He hasn't reached a decision since 2017 (a unanimous decision against James Winchester) and only has gone the distance in two of his 28 fights. The only reason he doesn't have a massive knockout streak going is because his Dec. 19, 2020 fight against Chris van Heerden ended in a no-decision after an accidental head butt.

              But no matter, it's time for Ennis to get his chance to fight for a championship. Ugas makes the most sense for Ennis -- he's probably the most vulnerable of the three current title holders -- and the winner should set up well to take on either Spence or Crawford in a unification big-time fight either at the end of 2021 or early in 2022.

              Of course, boxing is fickle and promoting and lining up the fights that should happen doesn't always happen, but Ennis has done his part to give himself a chance to win a belt. Along with Vergil Ortiz Jr., they have a chance to become the next stars of their division since they are both only 23 years old.

              Jaron Ennis and Vergil Ortiz look to shake up boxing's stagnant welterweight division

              For years, Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. have been the dominant welterweights but have never seemed close to securing the big fight against each other. Ennis and Ortiz's recent victories indicate that the division is headed toward a much-needed reboot...

              The earnestness from Ortiz and Ennis is what makes them particularly refreshing. It's reminiscent of Teofimo Lopez's willingness to take on Vasily Lomachenko in 2020, a risk that resulted in Lopez winning three of the four lightweight belts and a victory over one of boxing's best pound-for-pound fighters...

                The ratings being low isn't just because Ennis is unknown...Which is true. But even Broner did bad ratings and he used to always be a top draw.

                SHO's boxing ratings have plummeted and I know for apps like those it is not just about Nielson ratings, I would think the higher ups would like to see an increase there.

                Charlo vs Castano can be the start of that but really I guess you would need to put Tank or Spence on SHO to see if the ratings still stay low with those two.

                  That's the only logical thing. Put Spence or Tank on regular Showtime and not PPV to see how the numbers look.

                    Won't happen, unless they take a big loss or their name value drops.

                    Tank is fighting Barrios on PPV and Spence is fighting Ugas on PPV.
