Gracie killar - That Floyd and Showtime deal is supposed to be record breaking but I am wondering if this is a multi fight deal or a one off.

6 Fights, 30 Months

We'd be very lucky to get 3 fights out if Floyd in 30 months Phone Post

Fight camp 360, but I agree it's not the same.

Maybe they can do a face off with my boy Mauro

Anybody know the dollar amount behind this deal 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

Wow Floyd with Showtime, HBO just took a massive hit.

So Showtime PPV and they will use CBS to put on 24/7 type promo shows?

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.

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?

Anybody got an ideal opponent @ 140 for Broner pending the move?

Matthysse or Khan baby.

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.
