Come to think of it, maybe HBO is looking to get out of business altogether. (Game of Thrones is ending, too.) They’re justifying this decision by claiming that fewer people are tuning in, though.
Still, there are still boxing fans out there. Where are they going to go now? Showtime? Or are they going to be next to dump the sport? This really is a huge blow to boxing in general.
In any case, what little incentive sports fans still have to keep on subscribing to HBO is gone. End of an era.
