Shobox has existed between 2001-2014, but it won't be around next season. Showtime Sports dropped the event yesterday and this is being widely reported across Twitter. Yesterday i wrote a story about Stephen Espinoza being a success by bringing Mayweather to the network. However after this recent development I can do a full flip.
No Showbox stalls the progression of up and coming talents. This has been a medium for young talents to progress to genuine fighters on major cards at Showtime sports. With showbox cards no longer being planned for next season it may further stall careers. It is a sad day for boxing lovers across the world.
