HBO and Golden Boy Promotions have parted ways, a huge move in the industry which is sure to lead to only more turmoil. As the existing Top Rank vs. Golden Boy feud has already torpedoed a great deal of the best and biggest fights that fans want to see, this move creates even more distance between those camps.
On HBO, you'll be watching Top Rank fighters. On Showtime, you'll be watching Golden Boy fighters. Don't expect to see a great deal of intermingling there, if any at all.
