I didn't understand why they did it two weeks ago and not sure why they are doing it now....
Showtime has the more significant bouts with two super middleweight title fights with IBF champ James DeGale defending against "Porky" Medina,who while a decent fighter, is another one of those IBF top contenders by default that truly isn't one followed by WBC champ Badou Jack defends against former champion Lucien Bute in what is a better bout.
Bute,who just lost a decision to DeGale in a good scrap,might be making his last stand as a top level fighters,while Jack being the main face of Mayweather productions needs a win to increase his exposure.
The winners are supposed to fight in the fall to unify the two belts....
On Fox,PBC has a rematch years later of a great action fight that was the only time Victor Ortiz ever
made a positive memory in a win vs Andre Berto.
Berto,who has always lost when not matched safely and Ortiz,who has shown a disturbing lack of heart except for the Berto win,should make a fun bout to watch.
It had better because if it isn't,it's pretty much a waste of time.
The other bout is another bout of two touted,but disappointing boxers as Edwin Rodriguez faces off with Thomas Williams.
I have a feeling that the winner will be fed to WBC light heavyweight champ Adonis Stevenson,who is always looking for competition on the PBC side...
