-The Commish :

Love the 24/7 series. HBO takes a fight you want to see and makes you want to see it even more. And if you are on the fence about seeing it, 24/7 pushes you to the side of seeing it. This is a fight most of us (I haven't seen a post yet where any of you have said "No" to seeing it) want to see, so the 24/7 series will whet our appetite for the fight even more. For those of you on the East Coast and who get up very early on Sunday (me!), the 24/7 begins at midnight. No problem. Hit the DVR button. I have heard from friends at HBO you really don't want to miss any of this 24/7 series. The Timothy Bradley-Manny Pacquiao fight is two weeks from this Saturday. You can just feel the excitement building! -Randy G.
