On December 12, HBO & Showtime Once Again Put Up Opposing Cards
Just when the boxing world is gaining some momentum, riding the waves of Pacquiao vs. Cotto, Mayweather vs. Marquez and the Super Six Tournament, the two biggest players in the game take another swipe at each other to everyone’s detriment.

The only real losers are us – the die hard boxing fans who are forced to miss some of the live action.
