This might be the worst PPV boxing coverage that i ever watched.

NATIONAL ANTHEM ( Unprofessional)
AUDIO PROBLEM
COMMENTATORS ( TOO MUCH CHATTING/NO energy)
CAMERA ANGLE (Amatuer)

We all hope that HBO/Showtime will cover the fight of MP next time.

yeah, it was pretty bad...

the lady who sang the american anthem: OH MY GAWD! that was humiliating!...and please...A TUBE TOP????? c'mon you can find a clothing more decent than that.

Audio problem: the end of mp interview: UNO DOS TRES, UNO DOS TRES...(then static)

commentators: half the time, i had problems hearing what they're saying ...I actually miss emmanuel stewart..i miss hating him during those pacquiao fights on HBO.

the commentators were awful. they were not paying attention at the peak of some of the rounds, like the 8th round when Solis hit the canvas for the first time... they were talking about something else. and there were occassions when solis stagerred and the commentators ignored them. merchant, lampley and steward of hbo are the best.

I agree. Even my wife who is not a boxing follower though HBO's commentators were the worst she has ever seen and heard on TV.

No good. MArk: FAIL!

Even SM cinema sucks. In SM City, N. EDSA Cinema 7, they were distributing fans coz of poor aircon, they even allowed people in the aisles at premier sec. Good thing Pac wins or else......

If the GBP vs TR legal tussle remains unsolved, i doubt it if HBO will cover
Pacman's fight. GBP has a clout on HBO. GB promotions have grown too big and too strong right now that if GBP will not work with HBO, HBO boxing will go bankrupt. The biggest money-making fight for 2007 is with GBP and that is the ODLH vs Gayweather.
