Broken link?

And about Manny fighting garbage opponents, syempre they're prize fighters, they fight for money.. Wala naman sigurong tatanggi sa pera di ba? Madaling sabihin for a commoner na fck that Manny should either retire or fight PBF, pero napag isip isip ko kung ako yung nasa lugar ni Manny I wouldn't miss the chance to earn money, become even richer, make my fellow countrymen happy, and further cement my legacy.. All of that served on a silver platter..

^ Biggest news in boxing right now :agree: CBS to do the primer :clap:

This is what I like about Top Rank. No matter what can be said about making in-house fights, when it comes to developing and promoting a fighter they really do a good job.

Im not familiar with Showtimes commentators but the thought of having the primer on free US TV SHOULD make this fight a blockbuster if it wasnt already. :smiley:

No they wont. Its still on Pay per view of Showtime. They will however do a series on CBS to promote the fight. Much like what HBO does on 24/7.

Im eager to see how CBS will play its part on this. And Im also expecting a huge PPV on the fight itself :bigmouth: :ashamed:

By putting many of the promotional materials for the fight on CBS,
Arum will reach an audience of 115 million television households. :bigmouth:
Arum, who considers CBS Corp. president and CEO Les Moonves a friend, said it has not been determined exactly how CBS will be involved. But similar to what HBO did with its “24/7” series, Showtime is going to produce a four-part series that will follow the fighters on the buildup to the match that it calls Fight Camp 360. The episodes, Arum said, will air live on CBS first and then on Showtime, except for the final one. That one, which will run through the weigh-in, will be on Showtime live first and then will be repeated on May 7, the day of the fight, on CBS.

nagkakatamaan naman either mahina lang sumuntok o matibay lang chin nila. Pero kung ipipilit ni Don King si Bradley na ilaban kay Pacquiao ngayun baka mapatay ni Pac man :bigmouth:

Can't blame him though.. Arum is a promoter and Manny is a prize fighter, it figures.. I'd do what Arum does too if given the chance, heck everyone will..

yeah, titles in multiple divisions and one scintillating fight after another, those are sure signs of someone who loves money more than the sport. :bigmouth:

i just can't understand what the fuss is all about regarding pac's next fight. no one had any issues when mayweather decided to fight mosley. no one said he was old; they're even lauding mayweather for choosing to fight a legit fighter. sure mosley's coming from two subpar fights (including that one), but he's better than pacquiao's last 2 opponents. everyone wants a JMM fight even though everyone saw what mayweather did to JMM when they fought. JMM just can't compete on pac's level today IMO, and he can't sell tickets as well as mosley. the same can be said to all the up-and-comers that they are trying to line up against pacquiao. you can also forget about martinez and williams, those guys are just too big for pacquiao.

Boxing is a business in case you forgot.. Though I'm not saying that Arum likes money more than boxing itself, it's just that what he's doing is what he is meant to do as a promoter.. And nothing's wrong with that..
