    LOL, after the 9th rd break, the ref has to warn Horn to do something or he will stop the fight. I just don't get that it's even unanimous?

    Good thing wrestling was on last night otherwise it be one miserable night as I am a pac fan. So I should skip the fight? Or was this actually good as in action throughout?

    bob arum. manny's purse in his previous fight against vargas was 4 mil and hbo passed on it as a ppv. in australia his purse is 10 mil + domestic ppv with over 47k tickets sold for a stadium fight.

    arum's set up a rematch to milk the last dollar.

    Mikey Garcia put on a clinic against Adrien Broner. He said he is willing to fight anyone who wants to box on Showtime. I'm a little ignorant in the politics of boxing. Are titles truly divided by HBO and SHO? If so isn't that a little Vince McMahan vs Eric Bishoff-ish?

    Klitschko just announced retirement, good decision.
    He gained an incredible amount of respect after his fight vs Joshua and everyone could see what a huge champion he was.

    I'm no authority on the subject, but my understanding is that promoters will only work with one network. I can only assume they have some sort of agreement, contract, etc. in place. So the titles themselves aren't divided by the networks, but rather since fighters/promoters typically won't fight on the other network, the belts end up staying with a particular network. Unless a title is vacated, and someone from the other network gains the title after that I would think.
