    Starting in 2019, HBO won’t be in the boxing business anymore. That’ll mean fights in the future will be up for grabs by a bevy of competing services.

    The New York Times reported that HBO Executive Vice President Peter Nelson met with the HBO Boxing production staff today to inform them of the decision. The only person expected to be retained is play-by-play man Jim Lampley. Nelson recently said there wasn’t a significant audience for the sport anymore, at least on HBO. The press release echoed that sentiment in expectedly vague terms:

    I stopped watching boxing 15years ago,

    It was too fucking crooked.

    Couldn't even cover it up.
