    Default HBO Now Doing Post Fight Interviews On Loud Speaker

    I kind of like it, it's like how the UFC does.

    They did that at Cotto-Judah as well.

    I don't like it. It makes the crowd reaction more important than the questions being asked.

    Doesn't change much of anything for me.......though I do hate the UFC and hope they die slowly and painfully

    HBO is trying to change their format to counter all the success of the UFC and MMA. They don't have to do that. Boxing will always prevail.

    Seems to get done in Boxing a few times and its a good addition. It gives good Banter between the fighters and there fans. It happened at the Lennox vs Botha fight with Lennox saying "Tell Mike Tyson to put up or shut-up' the crowd lapped it up.

    yet I think it takes away from a good interview after the fight. The fans control what the guy is saying and where the interview is going.

    While I agree that it may take away from the post fight interview at the time, I think it is entertaining. And of course we are all going to read about several post fight interviews and listen to them later anyway. The only fight i attended I wished that they had interviewed on the loud speaker. Could have heard Larry merchant in person.

    well even when ever i sat RINGSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE i couldnt hear wtf larry and pac, larry and rjj, etc was saying? i hella wanted to know? so i had to wait a week later for the Replay on HBO to hear what they actually said lol

    so i think actually being at the fight venue it would be a great bonus to actually hear the post fight interview cuz i personally always wondered/wished to hear wtf they was saying?

    It isn't bad but I think it affects the whole broadcast. Sort of like how a postfight interview in wrestling is sort of a show. I would think the people could wait to see it at home.. But I understand. When I went to boxing matches I was always wondering what the guys were saying and you could only guess. So I guess I understand, but I like the old ways better just for the fact that is makes the interview more real.

    I really don't know what you mean

    Doesn't bother me at all in fact I much prefer it. By not allowing the paying fans to hear the interviews it creates an unhealthy seperation between fan and organisation, something that I think has hurt boxing in recent years, especially when compared to the UFC which is built totally around catering to and appealing to its fanbase.

    You may like the tradition of all the HBO crew wearing bow ties and tuxedo's too but to the young fan these days it just makes boxing seem old and stuffy in comparison to MMA.

    Whilst purists will always resent change I think boxing needs to become more fan friendly if it is to remain a major sporting interest with the casual public.
