Im watching this andrade and muller fight, and muller got owned in second round. I understand how this is bad for promoters because it was an un-even fight, however the announcers say "its unfortunate this fighters on sucha big card", i think they should show respect to everybody in their.

(i just started getting into boxing alot btw so dun flame if im just uneducated)

I agree with the announcers. I'm glad they're not being politically correct and saying it like it is. I paid 50 dollers for this event, I want to see competative fights, or at least put a great prospect against a decent journeymen.

A decent Journeyman, against a complete can, is not something that should be a PPV, it should be on friday night fights.

One other thing, the announcers are aware that boxing is in competition with the UFC so they want a completely great boxing card just like the fans do. Remember, they are fans first.

One thing I love about HBO guys - They WILL tell the truth.

Unless its a house fighter like Mayweather, Jones, or Barrera fighting, they'll usually be pretty nuthuggish with guys like them.

Probably the fact that boxing wasnt as great as it once was.
