    Good news. Any word on if TSN is going to pick up more Showtime or HBO broadcasts live?

    Showtime is in a bad spot. With a lot of Haymon's fighters going to NBC and Top Rank working with HBO, it seems like Showtime doesn't have that many big fights to look forward to. Superchannel has dropped Showtime Boxing from its programming in Canada. HBO fights will continue to be shown on HBO Canada and whatever fights Showtime has in the future will be on TSN.

    Sweet! I was getting bummed that I wasn't going to be able to see this.

    Thanks

    Does this mean Shotime's deal with super channel in Canada is dead?

    Yes. Superchannel announced they will not be showing Boxing anymore. More likely than not, Showtime Boxing will be on TSN.

    Well except for a few technical difficulties on showtime and a couple of commercial breaks going a few seconds long I think last night went well. Cannot complain about free fights.
