Nice production. Done very well. Nice to hear from the fighters and trainers and get a sneak peak behind the scenes of their training tactics. Nice family moment with Kovalev. All in all an interesting piece.

Contrast that with the other garbage= drugs,fights to the death,gambling, flashing money. Fake or not it is like school on Saturday = no class.

Couldn't agree more Deep. I've always got time for Bernard, he's a man about his business, and he's about it in meticulous fashion with such a high level of discipline that it's simply unmatched in the sport today in my opinion. I want him to win, I just don't believe Kovalev is a toy to be played with.

I concur. I want to see the dedication and craft that makes someone elite at the age of 49. I also enjoyed seeing what a down to earth person Kovalev is. The man still carries his own baggage when entering and leaving the arena he fights in.

I like both these fighters.

Shows what garbage Showtime just put on with weed, hoes and an elitist lifestyle. What a joke.

Hehehehe! Showtime was desperate. And “All Access” is a failed show that is fading to black. HBO is working its Mack.

I told you guys from the jump that the Showtime jive will be tacky. And that no way in hell were they getting away with letting Money May and company be so wacky. Holla!

I get what Showtime was thinking though. If you look at most reality television, it is some version of the garbage that was on all access. Boring people trying to be portrayed as interesting, a lot of foolishness, and drummed up fake drama.

I think what Showtime underestimated was the intelligence of their boxing viewing audience. To Radam's point, the metrics of All Access have been blah at best which shows their boxing viewer is not the average television watcher.

Or the ratchet television watchers. Showtime's “All Access” is for the audience of Worldstarhiphop dot com — no hate, no prejudices, no elitism. Holla!
