  • Kudos to Top Rank for bringing boxing back. Such a run of bad luck! All these were better fights than the June line-up. Hopefully they’ll find some good replacement fights.

  • Hopefully this doesn’t start the end for Top Rank. Bob too old to be going through these continuous setbacks. Prob bleeding money at this point. He’s been used to ODH, Mayweather, or a Paq type fighter to compensate for failed promotions

  • These fights were headliners? Boxing is in bad shape these days. I miss knowing who the fighters actually are.
