Ron Swanson did you find the numbers involved with what they made on the contract. I'm just curious. It is very interesting that a Floyd fight will be on network. Funny, his last fight was the highest asked for ppv and now we go for a free view. It will be interesting to see market shares for the fight. I think CBS is reporting they are pleased with the market shares they are getting with boxing events but when I talk sports at work or in public the majority of people I talk to still have no idea of the boxing world. I still pay for both HBO and Showtime primarily for boxing. Especially in Showtimes case, they very rarely have anything that piques my interest.
Not a good fight at all but I'm ok with it on free T.V. Dumb move for the network to pay that price, but it's not as insulting to fans on free t.v. While there r better fights for him out there, I'm not sure any fight with Floyd excites me at this point, if I'm being honest. I think Khan vs Brook, Porter vs Thurman, and Bradley vs Garcia r all more interesting at this point (or any match ups of those names). Floyd is brilliant but is too safety conscious these days to provide real excitement.
Hardly the same as Berto is it?
Let me guess B-hop was past it? Despite fighting the best fighters a decade on an winning the world title a couple times?
Sorry Fella but it aint the same thing you're chattin about right now.
Floyd is not TBE! Why? He simply had too much control over his own career and never fought who people wanted.
Everytime Floyd is setting up an opponent there is a preferred few fighters and recently he almost never picks any of them. (Pacquiao saga aside).
We all though It was a joke when he said Berto.... Which means he may have been serious about Mayfield.... Who the fuck is Mayfield??

It'll be a 3 hour broadcast, they'll show the under card, they'll show a lot of teasers/filler material where they can cut to commercials every couple of minutes, and those commercial spots are going to be extremely valuable. They were charging 4.5 million for 30 second ad spaces during the Super Bowl. Floyd vs Berto is NOT the Super Bowl obviously, but their spots aren't going to be cheap. Then you have to figure in advertisers and sponsors of the event, advertising space on the actual ring, ect. Then you factor in ticket sales, broadcasting rights, ect. They'll profit off of this, no problem.
