Default Dan Rafael has even had to conform to ESPN's new marketing approach to boxing

He wrote an article about the Fury fight this past weekend. I haven't read much of Dan's recent stuff, but in the past he hasn't been shy about slamming mismatches and calling them pathetic. But here he didn't do that. Not one word about how Schwarz is club-fighter level or anything like that. He must have to conform to how ESPN does their boxing coverage now, which is a bunch of hyping and marketing stuff and no real analysis or anything of value.

He did kinda say this...

" after destroying massive underdog Tom Schwarz."

"Although the Gypsy King was not facing a top opponent in Schwarz "

"It kept ... Fury ... 30, of England, busy"

I was liking ESPN's approach more than PBC and DAZN up until this weekend. Fuk, that was stomach turning. When Kellerman is the only honest guy in the room, you know your show is fukd.

ESPN has the best looking events in terms of camerawork, production values, etc and these ring card girls Uncle Bob has hired are out of this world (see my avatar!), but holy **** the commentary and content has been embarrassing as hell.

When Khan fought Crawford, they dedicated Khans build up before his ring walk to five minutes going over Khan cheating on his wife and how embarrassing it was when his webcam masturbation video came out, and then they cut to Kregel telling Khan what a bad husband he was. It was the craziest **** I’ve seen in a PPV since fan man

No one was honest in the panel, even Ward was biting his lip the whole time, At least HBO let people disagree with the narrative a bit like Max and Ward did, but they looked like robots out there agreeing with everything that ESPN was pushing.

Top Rank / ESPN only like company men like Tim Bradley. Lying to casuals because they are easily influenced.
