It's unreal how awesome HBO Boxing is. The 24/7 Show is absolutely amazing...

If UFC can do 10% of what HBO Boxing does, I would love UFC. HBO is epic. Like watching a real life movie unfold in front of you. There is drama in their fights. Highlights of the boxers and the towns they are from. the people who brought them to the height of the career. their families, what they are fighting for. Who are important to them. The audience relates and identifies with that.

UFC is 'lets bang and sell ppvs'. It's an upscale toughman contest at this point.

Ricky Martin -  I guess less is more

because UFC is outselling boxing.


UFC has a PPV every month, more ppvs, of course it is producing more money.

However, Boxing is not willing to water down it's product just to beat the fad of the UFC.

It will wait and take over the spot of number one combat sport in the world.

The UFC is putting on 2 many shows imo.

Thus they dont really have the "superfight" feel.

But the UFc still does maintain a very good quality even with 20 some events a year

Freddie Roach and Floyd Mayweather Sr are awesome characters to add to the story as well, i actually find them more interesting then pacman and hatton themselves

The real irony here is how much Hatton apparently disagrees with you. Wasnt it just a couple of months ago he was saying that boxing could learn alot from the UFC?

Oh, Delicious.

The UFC could also learn some stuff from boxing but are too stubborn to do so

they did try a lil harder with gsp/penn2

i think its harder to do a 24/7 type thing with the depth of mma undercards...

but it would be super sweet to do a 24/7 type thing to highlight someone who isn't the main event just as much as the main event. give a ton of exposure to an up and comer or someone trying to get back to the top and allow their story to be told..

 These shows are awesome. They definitely have 2 more to go atleast. If Mayweather comes back, what better of a way to hype his return than a 24/7 special.

Then, they have winner of Hatton/Pac vs. Mayweather.

So, they have atleast 2 more.

Boxing is still better than the UFC for the big fights. The UFC owns boxing for average card or event.

24/7 is indeed an epic show.

Id like to give Hatton's wife the ole in out, in out.

Everything about 24/7 is great.
The narrator, the music, the angles, the fighters, the crew, the lighting, the celebrity apperances etc

The thememusic is so good I changed my ringtone from the Pride Theme to the HBO Theme.

HOLYSHIT! Floyd sr is more shredded than most 20yr olds at my gym who are abusing the PEDs.

also, that part where hatton's mom was describing where he gets his fetish for tall women is from was hilarious.

 Boxing always has the biggest event of the year.
