lol these fan made promos be better than hbo and showtime

  

You ain't lying lol....I can't even name a network promo this year that comes close to that one

Tell me about it! These networks can save a lot of money by ditching these Poindexters behind the desks, and leave it up to fans who really know about the sport. Hell, they could possibly get away with paying a fan less than they pay these nerds to make these promos.


It would be worth the investment, the network promos show you the same 3 images and then the fight date and that's it. At least with these fan made promos they put some time, effort, and thought into it

I think at this point Canelo and Cotto have similar drawing power to pacquiao when it comes down to them on ppv with no extra gelp, so what i mean is their NAME only, only their on drawing power with no opponent help. man if we could get may-pac with canelo-cotto on the undercard that would def beat the one or the delahoy fight.   Hell even add in khan and youll have every race and creed on the card, a real american melting pot ppv card.

 

but hey, we all love to dream right?

They better at least throw a rebate in there somewhere, if it's gonna be $120. Aint nothin' like the good ol' bait & swtich method....they got me with that Tecate crap when I ordered a PPV a few years back....nastiest beer in the world...would've been better off giving me a case of O'Douls.

Ya know? Who even said that the promos have been as long as fans make them? I believe the network can "woo" potential buyers with 45 - 60 seconds of a nice promo. I'm not exactly sure how much that would cost them to run a commercial that long (heard that commercials were quite expensive), but something needs to be done. 

 

The last good non-PPV promo that took me over the top, was Maidana/Lopez....other than that, these promos lack that "umph" factor....

I'm not sure how much they cost either but if I was a casual fan, the promos they run to push these fights would not entice me to watch them
