"This is as good as it gets in boxing. We hope to have as many regular boxing fans in that room as we possibly can. You can get a great seat for the price of what you pay for a Pay-Per-View telecast. This quality of boxing has been emblematic of SHOWTIME's boxing program in the last few years."

STEPHEN ESPINOZA, Executive Vice President/General Manager of SHOWTIME Sports
 
"This event will be the 25th boxing event at Barclays Center in five years. I need to recognize Barclays Center and their staff because there are not that many venues supporting and contributing to this sport the way Barclays Center is. More than half of those shows have been on SHOWTIME as we've done 12, and two have been on CBS.
 
"We've set a very high bar with those events. Fighters know and promoters know - everyone knows that when you fight on SHOWTIME at Barclays Center it's a big and exciting night in boxing.
 
"Fight fans sometimes complain that having multiple belts or multiple champions is complicated and confusing. But in this division, it's not. I'll make it really simple: these guys up here are the best guys in the division. That's it. Who's at No. 1 and who's the best? I can't tell you. But it's one of these six guys. So this coming Saturday you will see the best in the division, and they'll be fighting each other."

[QUOTE=Kigali;18134267]He looks strong ...because he's been on a steady diet of pigeons. Hatley is better than Jorge Corta... Corta's resume is shockingly bad. Charlo won't be added to list fella' and IF he loses he lose. I won't call him…

wth? Lubin looks like he's 30 here lol

Comment by Jsmooth9876 on 10-14-2017

Lubin, IMO has fought the same lame competition on his way to this mandatory fight. Fighting a handful of the same style Mexican fighters over and over doesnt prepare you for someone whos just as athletic and skilled. If he's…
