Are you Team PBC or Team HBO? Do you bristle at all those horrible PBC mismatches and the oversaturation of the boxing product by the upstart Al Haymon company? Do you hate all those HBO mismatches featured on premium cable and the intense pro-HBO salesmanship of HBO’s broadcast team?
Or maybe you’re more old school in your loyalties.
If that’s the case, are you a Top Rank guy or a Golden Boy guy? Maybe neither. Are you an Al Haymon supporter, instead?
Or maybe your loyalties are tied into particular fighters and their crews?
Are you on The Money Team? A member of Pacland? Maybe you’re a Golovkinite.
If you harbor any of these arbitrary loyalties, you’re the reason boxing is full of handcuffing politics, cynical fight-killing business moves, and sporting an ever-larger list of showdowns that will never be.
