    My pet peeve is that they never stay on time within the perimeters of the time allotted. Its a 2 hour show thats always 20 mins over. Is this happened once in a while its ok but it happens everytime. You CAN'T start a 12 round fight with 35-40 mins left in the show. A 12 round fight will usually take 1 hour to complete. Don't get me wrong. They have the best boxing coverage and I really like the format of the FNF show and Teddy is great. Just wish if I set aside 2 hours every WED/FRI they could stay on time sometimes cause sometimes all I have is 2 hours to give to watching the show or I have to record some of the show and watch it when I have more time.

    That is understandable. But live events always have this problem. You should have recorded the boxing even as well as the program afterwards just incase. I know it might be a hassle having to jump from one program to another just to catch the later part of a fight, but hey... At least you get to see it all.

    Just extend the recording for an extra 30 minutes or an hour.

    Why would it bother any fan for extended coverage?For me,i'm so glad that ESPN comes in my hometown to show a live event.I think they can extend their air time every time and i will only be happy

    You got to extend your recordings for sure. I do that whenever I record a live event. Or if I am recording a shoe that comes on after a live event I extend it in the event it got started late due to the event running long. I have some other broblems with ESPN2 boxing but this isn't one of them.

    Here where I live, theres no HBO available to non satellite subscribers.

    It was on TSN in Canada.
    Commercials and all, and Nascar ran long and I didn't get too see the De Leon fight.
