some may disagree and call Floyd a dick for leaving HBO...but he's opening doors for the younger guys. Ward and Broner will definitely be getting more and more attention from HBO now, Froch/Kessler II will be on HBO as well.

Floyd has made HBO the past decade, so now he's going to increase CBS/Showtime lol...I agree he'll make Fight Camp 360 much better, even though they did a good job with the Super Six.

as a Boxing fan, I'm excited, it'll make HBO have to dig down and come up with bigger fights too.

Very true, and competition is always a good thing for the sport.

I would like to imagine that Ward can become their new PPV king one day, but the problem is that there's no De La Hoya of SMW for him to fight, which both Pac and Floyd benefited from.

Ultimately this is great for Showtime/CBS, a bit of a hit for HBO, and good for boxing overall.

pharochuck -  GGG and Martinez is the fight for me. Phone Post

 

GGG and Chavez is it for me

 

Martinez and Ward I like a bit more. Golovkin goes after and ends up getting Martinez IMO (a bit harsh to say though considering how good of a mover/puncher Martinez is)

Also i'm having trouble even THINKING of 6 opponents for Floyd that are relatively possible fights

Ward would crush him IMO. Ward seems methodical and fights in a controlled manner, but he's very fast and Martinez wouldn't be able to elude him or potshot. At a certain point ward is going to get him and Martinez honestly wouldn't be able to keep him at bay. Phone Post

 

I see Ward the clear winner of the two for sure. I def should have been more specific in the fact that I just see Martinez and Ward being able to get after it a bit longer than what would happen with GGG and Martinez. 

 

I always see GGG as a Kosta Tyszu, and would never mind if either got the fight with Ward. Thinking of the GGG/Martinez fight in this manner....Peter Quillin has said GGG has run him out in sparring as well as banged all over Chavez and Maritrosyan. If guys like Paul Williams, Macklin, and Chavez have knockdowns on you......I just have to think this is where GGG gets him. Also should state that as far as entertainment goes, I would want GGG/ Martinez. Me being a bit of a nerd for fighting styles tho, wanted to see how the skillset of Ward would play on Martinez and if Martinez can hold him off, or get eaten.

I feel GGG would beat Martinez, and Ward beats both imo.

Vaguely.

Do you think the length of the contract is just a provision, or will Floyd actually fight 6 more times?

I'll be surprised if he fulfills the contract, there's probably something in the contract that allows him to end it after a few fights.

agreed sub, 140 is deep.

Matthysse imo is Broner's toughest fight.

I figured I'd share this with the true boxing fans instead of making it in my own thread.

 

I watched the first episode and it was good, going to watch the 2nd one later today.

http://www.putlocker.com/file/BFDAAD47CB169931 episode 1

http://www.putlocker.com/file/7D2BFD4C44A9DB00# episode 2

http://sharerepo.com/cb9i55ble4m6 episode 3

 

It's a documentary show called "The Fight" that goes through the timeline of boxings greatest and what made them great.

He's gonna sit down with Al Haymon, Golden Boy, and The Watson Twins so they can figure who can get it. Phone Post

I found out the Watson aren't even twins lol...Broner said the other day, if he can't get Ricky Burns next (assuming he beats Vasquez) then he'll be jumping up to 140 sooner then later.

Wait what? I hope this isn't true. I'd be as crushed as when I found out Renato Laranja wasn't real. Please tell me the Watsons are twins Phone Post

Rigondeaux-Donaire fight having issues.

Donaire made this statement o. Twitter today

"I want you guys to hear it from me first. I am NOT going to NYC for the presser this Thursday bc Rigo is backing off his agreement to VADA drug testing. Rigo's team verbally agreed to VADA testing both online and in negotiations. But now that the contract to start testing is infront of them, they are finding every excuse not to sign and delay the start of the testing. I have NOT signed my fight contract yet to fight him so I have no obligation to fight ONLY HIM. It disappoints me that top fighters these days run from everything that will hold professional boxing integrity to its highest standard. I will be looking into other opponents with my manager, Cameron Dunkin immediately"
