This is just a quick heads up as I don't know how to catch more eyes more quickly. Delete this tomorrow if you want. I don't remember who, but one of the contributors here said Rigondeaux was going to be bumped off TV in the weekend fight preview. That seemed strange to me since they were advertising the card as a triple header on the last show, so I investigated. Dan Rafael says all three fights will be on air in his chat today.
Dan you said 30 rounds tonight. Which fights specifically will be on?
Johnson-Mack (12), Parades-Hernandez (10) and Rigondeaux-Landeros (8)."
Even with minimal to no studio time that isn't simply a very difficult amount of fights to fit in two hours, it is a flat out impossible amount. If you're recording the show as I suspect many of you are, I'd go WAY over in terms of how long you set it for. I'm putting 90 minutes extra just to be safe. Look at it this way: 30 rounds of boxing is potentially 90 minutes of boxing alone. Add a minute after each of the thirty rounds and you're at the two hours. Nevermind studio time, time for decisions, or the longer commercial breaks. Either Rafael and their advertising were liars or this is being allowed to be a three hour show minimum.
Cheers. Should be a great weekend of fights and I didn't want anyone to miss tonights solid card.
