    Showtime signing a 3-0 'boxer' who yet hasn't faced any legitimate boxer..no wonder there is folks out there claiming boxing is fading away which is not true, maybe this particular network just desperate for views i mean if mayweather had to get out of retirement to 'fight' couple YouTubers

Because Dervy fought GGG on DAZN in 2019 (Andrade has yet to fight him), Ruiz fought Joshua on DAZN in 2019 TWICE, and Castano just fought Texieira on DAZN in 2021! Now you tell me which fighters from DAZN have fought on a PBC card? See the picture?







    The only picture that I see is the dumb one that they draw for you and your cultists. Where is the Charlo v Boo Boo? We ask for that but you getting Montiel...7ms, where is Spence v Crawford? Nah let’s give them Mikey, Where is AJ v Wilder? Nah let’s block it and give them an unfit Fury... Where is Tank v Lomachenko, Farmer 5ms...nah let’s bring up underweight guys for him..Where is offers from PBC for their top guys to fight other top guys from other networks or promotional outfits? Nah let them take less to fight in house fights..

    We were in for Inoue v casemiro what happened? Signed to PBC and that’s over... But but Ruiz doe... What about Ortiz that we wanted for AJ? What about Kownacki? Nah... Let’s give them Ruiz who we only just signed and don’t give a s hit about...Again GTFOH with that cultists sheet.

    Show us offers from PBC that was turn down by other network/Promoters for their bigger names...Please not the dumb phantom 50m offer

    A booming, divided boxing business in 2019
    January 9, 2019

    With an increasing number of networks and online platforms investing millions in boxing, the business of the sport has never been so robust and vibrant. It's also never been as divided as it is at this very moment.

    There are more ways to watch fights and view boxing content than ever before, but it's easy to wonder how long this boxing boom can last given that the majority of the fights the public yearns for simply aren't realistic with the various alliances that exist within the industry...

    The bottom line is that the best way to seek out a superfight at this moment is to go where the opponents are. Anyone that wants to fight Canelo Alvarez, for example, will have to do so on DAZN, as he inked an 11-fight, $365 million deal that kicked in on Dec. 8 at Madison Square Garden. In that fight, Alvarez bludgeoned the overmatched Rocky Fielding in three rounds.

    Every network has the services of at least one marquee boxer, and with the investment they've made in that boxer, they will obviously frown upon them performing on any other stage but their own. Exclusive deals that have tied down boxers to a specific network have been around for years, and this isn't a new dynamic. What's new is that there are now more players involved, jockeying for their place in the pecking order.

    "We've been around long enough to know the politics will always stop certain fights from happening when there's cross-network politics. So when you're talking about in the past, it was no different with HBO and Showtime. Now it might be DAZN, ESPN or ESPN+ or Fox," said Hearn, who in the past has been willing to do co-promotions, though that was before his association with DAZN.

    "I do like to think that we have a reputation for making more fights with other promoters than anybody else," he continued. "But of course, everybody's strategy is the same: Deliver the biggest names and the biggest fights to your platform, your broadcaster. It's not just that one's nasty or vindictive, that's just the name of the game. If I've got Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua and I'm putting him on ESPN, well, what's the point in DAZN being with us and giving us a budget if we can't deliver our big names to their platform..."

    Ultimately, there is a stark reality to the current marketplace. Promoters aren't just worried about protecting their boxers, but also protecting their broadcast partners.

    "This is just the business, it will mean that certain fights are difficult to make," explained Hearn, who is under pressure himself to make a Joshua-Wilder fight sooner rather than later.

    "If Golovkin comes to DAZN, I'm sure we'll get Canelo against Golovkin III," Hearn continued. "If he doesn't, then we'll probably never see that fight. So that would be a shame. Will you ever see Lomachenko against Mikey Garcia? I very much doubt it. It's a fight I'd love to see. Will you see Errol Spence against Terence Crawford? I very much doubt it. That's another fight I'd love to see."

    That sound you hear? It's the collective groaning of boxing fans across the world.

    "It's not that anyone's really trying to scuff up the sport or be difficult, it's just their jobs," Hearn went on to say. "Haymon's got to deliver for Showtime and Fox, I've got to deliver for DAZN, Bob's got to deliver for ESPN.

    "So they won't move their talent, nor will we."

    So there you have it dummy! Stop with the "PBC is the worst" BS! Don't hate the player, hate the game!

    Maybe. At some point it may be an advantage to take an L for Floyd, even if its some pro wrasslin type L, to humanism him more. Idk just thinking out loud. I'm not entirely convinced this will even be a legit fight. Think it could be sparring with attitude. Think it could be like Tyson vs RJJ where Floyd lets Logan live like Tyson seemingly let RJJ live. Could be no decision announced. Could be 3 celeb judges who are contracted to score a certain way & against Floyd to drum up sympathy for Floyd. Who fooking knows whats up with this yet is my main point doe. Its an exhibition. I think folks are forgetting that. Granted its an exhibition that will generate more money than 99.9% of fights in the history of boxing, but the exhibition angle still leads to potential shenanigans in ways we can only speculate on with weeks to go & still few details revealed about how this whole thing will operate.

    The fight is only 8 rounds. I've even heard Floyd on a podcast recently talk about the fight like it'll only be 6 rounds.

    And do we for a fact know there will even be a decision rendered for this fight or are we gonna have some sorta Tyson vs RJJ celebrity judges who've pre-decided to call it a draw or some other conclusion?

    I keep thinking this sorta thing to. I just don't know the upside of it. He keeps fighting these popular guys who get their own money coming in so Floyd probably isn't as much of a favorite as he should be so the value isn't realllllllly there due to the amount you'd have to put down to win a greater amount then his likely purse. And some with round props if he wanted to get stopped in 3 lets say. Round props usually don't go beyond +10,000 that I've seen so you'd have to get 10k down on the 3rd round KO to win a million, but thats gonna knock down those odds drastically & get red flags all over the place for folks looking at this numbers. So unless Floyd is taking a dive for a piece of Jake's or Logan's next decade or two income idk that it'd be possible or make sense.

    The thing I think about too is when does size & age beat skill? 40 something Floyd can beat a 20 something novelty boxer who's 30lbs heavier, but can a 50 something Floyd beat a novelty boxer in a decade who's 100lbs bigger than him? At some point age & size beats skill I just don't know when that path gets crossed. Maybe Floyd will help us figure that out.
    Not gonna lie, I didn't think that far into it.

    But I do wonder the same in the latter part. The two bros are essentially cruiserweights(?), that's pretty big against a guy who barely can get 150 on the scale. Floyd should be able to out box him but how much size difference is too much size difference right? It'll be interesting to see. Or well, I'll watch highlights. I'm really not gonna be bothered to watch the actual fight go down. lol
