Default End of an Era, no more HBO Boxing

Wow, I was saddened and shocked to see HBO will no longer be televising boxing from 2019 going forward and their October card could be their last.

Thumbs down

What a gut punch. HBO has always been my go to for boxing. Favorites were once or twice a year, they would a triple header of young fighters. Usually it's a prospect vs. some nobody but they usually had two good young fighters.

That's too bad.

#&*$^^#^!!!! I am a boxing nut and subscribe to HBO and Showtime for the fights, though I do like some of the shows too. So what, now I gotta watch commercial tv (ESPN, Fox) or subscribe to streaming services (DAZN), which I hate, to get my fix?

I am going to have to rethink my media strategy...

Can't say I'll miss it. Never was a sweet science fan, whatever the hell that term means. My antipathy goes back to 1962 when Benny Kid Paret beat the dog s**t of Davey Moore, who ended up dying days later from the brutal beating. Totally brutal sport, if you can even call it that with a straight face. I liken it to cock-fighting and watching pit bulls rip kittens to shreds as part of their training for dog fights. Probably in the minority here, but whatever . . .

Yo, pclpads:
Although I respect your antipathy towards "the noble art", you should get your facts straight. Davey Moore was killed in his fight with Sugar Ramos in 1963. Benny Paret died from the beating he took from Emile Griffith in 1962. And yes, both bouts aired live on national television.

Not really a fight fan, but to me the big difference between your examples is that humans can make the choice on their own to enter or not enter the ring that choice is not given to the animals. I understand its appeal i am just not into watching people receive punishment. Just not my thing, but to each his own. I did like watching fights when my late Pop Pop was alive because he would get so excited for them one of the few things that did excite him.
