i noticed a lot of paclanders giving the props to top rank for a great production on the pac/solis fight. me personally thought the production value of the show was terrible here's my two cents on it and figured i bring it up to fellow paclanders for debate and opinions. what do you guys think?

1. the commentators were horrible. not even in the league of merchant and steward and lampley. they even mentioned that round 3 was beginning but it was already round 4.

2. the pyrotechnics looked cheap. some blew out on the weirdest parts of the fight. when fighters came in, didn't have any additional info like unofficial weight after 24 hours, and stuff like that that all of us fans look forward to on being informed.

3. weird music was playing, just so people would hear something during intervals, like beyonce's "irreplaceable" (my wife actually noticed that). no way was it even near the quality or intensity of a UFC event as bob arum promised us.

4. then the audio problems. we really wants to hear manny speak in tagalog and finish his victory interview, but no, all i kept hearing was "uno dos tres" on the background.

i think top rank has a LOOOONGGG way to go in terms of production. it's a decent attempt, but still seemed like it failed and looked so rushed and unorganized. i bet hbo will do a better job come may 5 on ODLH/mayweather fight. let's wait and see!
