From the Thomasz Adamek interview:

"Boxing in the U.S.
makes you realize how much business is involved in this sport. Coming to
America I knew about promoters and rankings, of course, but it was hard
to imagine then how much power TV has, how a fight could be made â€" or
never happen for reasons that have nothing to do with the sport."

He must be referring to </font>the cancellation of the Klitschko-Povetkin fight because HBO refused to carry it.

HBO knew that Klitschko vs Povetkin was gonna be a great fight, so they didn't want to show it!Edited by: lost

We all know what's going on. Now we just have sound the alarm and support our fighters. It looks like ESPN will show the Peters Beatdown Part 2. Of course ESPN is hoping for a miricle from Peters. Not gonna happen.

Everyone needs to boycott HBO and also email them. Tell them how displeased you are. What a joke when you can't even see the two greatest heavyweights fight live in america.

You know the media is a willing accomplice in discriminating against White athletes when stuff like this happens. A boycott is a good idea, along with a barrage of emails.

I already told you guys my view. I've watched a lot of Povetkin's fights and he would win at least 3 rounds against Klitschko. He wouldn't win the fight but he would be the toughest fight Wlad has had in a while. If Sam Peter were fighting Jameel Mccline for the title HBO would pick it up.

It's above money. It's politics. They'd rather kill their own sport than allow the public to become conscious that the best heavyweights are now white.

They can't allow white youth to have a good strong example.

Well said Freedom. I agree with your last post 100%

Somewhere along the lines someone is lying. (mainstream)
If it was only about money the powers that be would take a guy like Wladimir Klitschko and try their absolute hardest to sell him to white America seeing as though there are fewer and fewer white male role models in the Anglo world. To add to that, if the white western world was as racist as the powers that be claim, then the white western world would JUMP at the chance to embrace these Eastern European Ivory destroyers thus adding to the incentive of the powers that be to promote Klitschko.

I think our rulers see a balance between money/propaganda. If they are well off financially then they will skip the opportunity to make even more by furthering their own propaganda. I believe that 100%.

I also believe that the masses are slowly waking up.

Right! i recall reading that only about 2200 people showed up for the Ali/Liston fight and most of them were the press. but that didn't stop the media from pushing Ali! my the 70's it got so bad boxing was pandering to other countries like the Congo and Philippines to put up the money for their pathetic fights.

In 1960, the sporting press was overjoyed to see the Swedish Ingemar Johanssen win the heavyweight title. They gave him plenty of publicity.

Yeah, it's scary, but there's a much bigger picture.

People have a natural tribalism. It's part of our human nature. In our modern times, this proclivity is channeled out through sports. The elite have to "manage" the channeling of this energy in people so that it does not get pointed at themselves. Apparently a proud, white middle class is a threat to them. So the last thing they want is people who fit this category to feel strong and confident about themselves. They want people in this category (who secretly really are the strongest and most threatening to them) to feel weak, e.g., white men can't fight, can't jump, can't dance, are lousy in bed, are dumb racists, etc, etc, etc. The Klitchkos obliterate all this brainwashing. They're very dangerous, and therefore cannot be allowed into the public consciousness.

The story of two brothers simultaneously holding heavyweight belts is the biggest story in sports no one even knows about. I'm sorry, but to me, this type of behavior by HBO falls into the realm of conspiracy theories. This site is lifting up the veil on who is manipulating the current American sports machine.

  "They can't allow white youth to have a good strong example."

Right.  They've got the white youth actively cheering on their own racial suicide.  I recall President Slick Willy Clinton speaking at a college in the northwest a few years ago and triumphantly announcing that in just a few years the USA would be majority non-white.  They all stood up to cheer him.  100 years ago they would have stood up to lynch him.   




"i recall reading that only about 2200 people showed up for the Ali/Liston fight ..."

The controlled media has turned the black muslim ("white people are blue-eyed devils brought down from trees by a black scientist with a big head") bum Clay alias Ali into some sort of demigod now, but people weren't nearly as brainwashed back then, and Clay was hated and booed.  They interviewed people in attendance after the Clay-Liston fights.  They couldn't find one who thought they were legit.

Here's a article on HBO and their involvement in Boxing.

HBO and the State of Boxing - Part One

Here's some excerpts I found interesting

Sources say that, on September 16, 2010, HBO Sports President Ross Greenburg made a presentation to the CEO and outlined a plan to raise ratings among African-American viewers. Greenburg's suggestions included the idea that HBO spend more money on advertising and promotion targeted at the African-American community.

HBO simply isn't giving its subscribers fights that fight fans want to see. One way of measuring that is ratings. Another way of measuring it is that fans aren't buying tickets to many of the fights that HBO televises. By way of example, Andre Berto vs. Carlos Quintana (for which HBO paid a US$2,150,000 license fee) sold 972 tickets.

HBO paid US$3,200,000 for a rematch between Chad Dawson and Antonio Tarver last year (their first fight drew 911 paying fans) because it wanted Dawson in its stable. Dawson-Tarver II sold 1,426 tickets. Then HBO paid millions more for a rematch between Dawson and Glen Johnson before Dawson lost to Jean Pascal.

Kery and Ross should pay fighters based on how much money they'd take out of their own pocket to see them fight,"Â￾ Duva says. "Would they pay their own money to watch Chad Dawson? How many people care if Andre Berto wins or loses? And how can you get excited watching Andre Berto and Chad Dawson when there's no passion in the arena? The only time there was passion in the arena for a Chad Dawson fight was when he went to Canada and fought Jean Pascal. Ross and Kery are television programmers trying to be promoters and they aren't listening to the fans. Kery's vision of the world is very small. He doesn't understand that there's more than HBO involved in a promotion. In the real world of boxing where I have to balance a budget based on how many fans buy tickets for a fight, entertainment matters. Arturo Gatti lost three fights in a row but he always gave the public great fights. Go to a Tomasz Adamek fight. Tomasz's fan base isn't as broad as Arturo's was but it's just as passionate. Tomasz's fans come to his fights wearing red and white. Their faces are painted. They scream all night. His fights are exciting. And the only way he can get on HBO is to go out to California and fight an Al Haymon fighter in a half-empty arena. There was a time when HBO created icons with its boxing programming. Where are the icons of tomorrow?"Â￾

Fans don't buy many tickets for Berto's fights. As noted earlier, his last championship bout (against Carlos Quintana on April 10th of this year) drew 972 paying customers. And the ratings indicate that HBO's subscribers aren't particularly interested in Andre, which raises the question of why the network paid a US$2,150,000 license fee that night.

No one knows how good Berto might be (including Andre) because HBO keeps paying him large amounts of money to appear against ordinary opponents.

Berto will be fighting Freddie Hernandez as part of an HBO tripleheader on November 27th. HBO is paying a license fee of US$1,200,000 for Berto-Hernandez.

Hernandez is an ESPN-level fighter. Recently, Dan Rafael of ESPN.com wrote, "Berto-Hernandez is a dog. Al Haymon, Berto's adviser, has manipulated, leveraged, and bamboozled HBO into overpaying and coddling Berto for years, and it continues here. HBO is paying $1.2 million for trash."Â￾

Berto-Hernandez will be Andre's tenth fight on HBO over a four-year period. His first nine opponents were:

Miguel Figueroa (December 9, 2006)- who took the bout for one last paycheck before retiring.

Norberto Bravo (February 17, 2007)- a hopelessly outclassed opponent, who has now lost seven of his last 12 fights.

David Estrada (September 29, 2007)- a credible opponent but one who was beginning a downward slide that has seen him lose in three of his last six outings.

Michel Trabant (February 9, 2008)- in his first fight after being knocked out by Berto, Trabant lost a unanimous decision to Roman Seliverstov (a fighter with a 7-7 record, who had lost seven of his previous nine bouts). That gave Trabant a five-fight run of one win, two losses, a draw, and one no-contest (relating to a positive test for steroids).

Miguel Rodriguez (June 21, 2008)- This one was for the WBC welterweight belt. Rodriguez, as of this writing, hasn't won a fight since September 2007.

Stevie Forbes (September 27, 2008)- who was known as "Little Stevie Forbes"Â￾. And that's when he was fighting at 135 pounds. Forbes had no business fighting Berto at 147. He has lost five of seven fights since February 2006.

Luis Collazo (January 17, 2009)- This was a good fight. But Collazo had lifestyle issues when he fought Berto and has continued to have them since then. He has fought only once during the past 21 months (against a club fighter with a 9-and-16 record, whose nine wins came against fighters with a total of five victories to their credit).

Juan Urango (May 30, 2009)- Urango is another smaller guy who came up in weight to fight Berto. He lost a decision to Andre and got knocked out by Devon Alexander at 140 pounds in his next fight.

Berto was scheduled to fight Shane Mosley in January 2010 but pulled out of the bout because of concern for his family in the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti. That was understandable. But then, rather than proceed with Mosley-Berto at a later date, HBO paid Andre the equivalent of step-aside money in the form of an inflated license fee for Berto-Quintana so the network could proceed with Mayweather-Mosley on May 1st.

Then Berto fought Quintana. Carlos is well past his prime and has won only two fights during the past 33 months. Those victories came against Joshua Onyango (4-17-1 in his past 22 bouts) and Jesse Feliciano (who hasn't won in 44 months and is 0-5 during that time).

Thirty years ago, HBO would have given a lot to show fighters like the Klitschko brothers. Not now, apparently.

EPIX buys US rights to Klitschko-Solis

Press Release: Epix, a premium entertainment cable channel, video-on-demand and online service, brings heavyweight championship boxing back to the American airwaves when WBC champion Vitali Klitschko defends his title against Odlanier Solis on March 19th, 2011 on the Epix channel and on EpixHD.com. The fight will air live at 6:00 pm ET, followed by a replay at 10:00pm ET. Klitschko-Solis will originate from Cologne, Germany, and sold out in minutes after tickets went on sale in January. Klitschko, 41-2 with 38 KOs, will be making the eighth defense of his crown, and his seventh since 2008 when he ended a four-year hiatus from the ring. Along with his young sibling, Wladimir, the Klitschko brothers are the premiere force in the heavyweight division. "We are pleased to bring this exciting heavyweight championship to American boxing fans on television and online,"Â￾ said Epix President and CEO Mark Greenberg. Klitschko vs. Solis marks the first boxing event televised on Epix, and the first time a Klitschko bout has aired live on American television since 2009.

Here's Dan Rafael article on EPIX buying the Klitschko fight.

Epix to televise heavyweight fight

HBO and Showtime have dominated boxing on premium cable in the United States for decades. Now there is a new player poised to enter the fray.

Epix, a premium network, video-on-demand and online service launched in 2009 that is available in more than 30 million homes, will televise Vitali Klitschko's heavyweight title defense against Odlanier Solis from Cologne, Germany on March 19.

"I think boxing is still an important franchise on the TV landscape," Epix president and CEO Mark Greenberg said after completing the deal Wednesday.

The Epix deal for Klitschko-Solis was brokered by promoter Lou DiBella. Greenberg said he liked the idea of a heavyweight title fight kicking off the network's involvement in the sport.

"There is still something special about a heavyweight championship fight," he said. "Boxing is fun. There's a certain energy level to it. It's a fascinating sport."

Greenberg is quite familiar with boxing and its long-standing relationship with premium cable. He once worked at HBO as a marketing executive and then spent 17 years at Showtime -- including 10 of them overseeing the boxing franchise -- until leaving in early 2006.

When HBO and Showtime made a landmark deal for Lennox Lewis, who was exclusive to HBO, to defend the heavyweight title against Mike Tyson, who was exclusive to Showtime, in 2002 in what was then the richest fight in boxing history, Greenberg led the Showtime negotiating team.

Greenberg said that Epix, a joint venture between Viacom, its Paramount Pictures unit, MGM Studios and Lionsgate, with a massive library of more than 15,000 movies, has not yet committed to a long-term involvement with boxing. But Greenberg made it clear he is very interested in it.

"I don't want to say we have a boxing strategy per se, but I have been involved in one or two fights," he joked. "Obviously, most boxing promoters have been to my office to talk to me along the way. I think the boxing business has had its ups and downs, but it's still an interesting business. We saw this fight as a unique opportunity for us. It's a heavyweight championship fight. We're going to do it and see if it makes sense for us to do more going forward. But it's good for the business to have another place that does boxing."

Klitschko (41-2, 38 KOs), 39, will be making his sixth defense of his third title reign against 2004 Cuban Olympic gold medalist Solis (17-0, 12 KOs), 30, his mandatory challenger.

"If it does well for them it will be great for boxing," Shelly Finkel, Klitschko's adviser, said. "At one time there was no HBO or ESPN. New things come. Hopefully, Epix builds to something bigger for boxing. That could be a new source of revenue, a new player in the field, which is really good for everyone in the business."

The bulk of the money generated from the fight will come from Klitschko's rich television deal with German network RTL. Epix has signed on for American coverage and, according to multiple sources, is paying in the $150,000 neighborhood for the rights.

Greenberg did not want to discuss the rights fee he was paying. He said he would evaluate how things go with Klitschko-Solis before making a commitment to more fights and, perhaps, larger fees.

"Nothing is on the books going forward. No commitments, no obligations, but there are always lots of discussions," he said. "We'll see what kind of buzz comes out of this. People will evaluate it and then we will have the fight available [live and on replays] on our network and our website [EpixHD.com] and see how it performs. But premium cable can do boxing well. You don't have commercials at the end the rounds. This is an intriguing thing for us to explore and this interesting for us.

"We paid a reasonable license fee for what the show is. This is a good, smart event for us. I think people love a heavyweight championship fight. For us, the money [being spent] was well worth it to be in the heavyweight business on our first foray. The more casual fan tends to jump more into the heavyweights than other divisions, like the middleweights."

HBO and Showtime helped build their subscriber bases by offering top-level fights. Greenberg thinks it can also help Epix.

"I do know what the motivation is for driving subscriptions," he said, although Epix is not carried by DirecTV or Comcast cable systems.

Klitschko-Solis will air live at 6 p.m. ET on Epix, as well as be streamed live on its website, with a network replay at 10 p.m. ET. Replays, he said, will also be available on the website and via the network's on demand platform. He also said that while the live broadcast will only include the main event the replay could also include undercard action.

Greenberg said making the fight available live on its website was part of the network's strive for a younger audience.

"Many younger people prefer to use their laptops to watch content, so we'll do that and make boxing available to a younger audience," Greenberg said. "Anything that regenerates interest in the boxing category is only going to be a positive to the category."

Greenberg said he was in the process of putting together an announcing team for the fight.
