INcredible... you mean there's gonna be boxing related stories on primetime TV???... this is a sensational opportunity..could have only been done with a star of Manny's magnitude... I hope in the long run this development breaks down the barrier between boxing and primetime TV.

This is quite a milestone although a sad reminder of how far boxing has regressed, for boxing fans to rejoice over something that wouldn't have been such a big deal in the late 80's to early 90's. Still, it's reason to celebrate whether you're a Pac fan or Pac-hater because in the end, boxing wins out. Hopefully it gets solid ratings to begin a trend. Manny is a tough act to follow, though, so here's hoping that a new star emerges soon.
