HBO and the Klitschko Brothers

Post by blueyedsamurai on Tue Sep 14, 2010 11:58 pm

Why i dont follow boxing that much i watched the Klitschko and peter fight and the commentry guys were saying that HBO doesnt show them fight due to them
not being very exciting......

While ill agree the Klitschkos r no tyson but then who is, is it because of that or r the americans butthurt that they dont dominate the heavies anymore?

I just think its pretty insane to not broadcast the world heavyweight champions

It is a shame, but the Klitschkos do lack some aggressiveness. Last fight i saw, it was all sitting outside the pocket and counterpunching. Plus, they're ducking Toney. Can't respect that.

im a little worried that u listen to what toney says, he says shit to hype himself and to get fights....from what ive read it comes down to the publicity of the fight.
Toneys old and wouldnt be a big draw.

There not on HBO not to the fact that there not exciting its to the fact that
the american Fans rather see a Hometown fighter then a fighter from Eastern Euro.

But HBO has said they are will to Air Klitschko Vs David Haye Or tomasz adamek Fight.

Hopefully we will see them fight dave or tomasz soon.

Toney doesn't deserved to fight a Klitschko. Just like Dana, don't believe what comes out of JT's mouth.

well i assumed that but its pretty bullshit if it is true. Well at least the euros support him, the peter match there was like 40,000 people there. They also gave Klitschko an
epic entrance

HBO doesn't show them because they wouldn't draw shit in terms of ratings.
