HBO's 24/7 series for the fourth fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez continues into the second episode. Unfortunately, this wasn't a warmly received effort.
In fact, many called it the worst episode in series history.
I think part of the problem, as I worried coming into this run, is that we've seen it all over and over from Pacquiao at this point, and we just had a Pacquiao-Marquez series a year ago, and frankly that one didn't garner strong reviews, either. The show is still highly effective with fresher fighters, or when Floyd Mayweather is involved because Floyd goes out of his way to be entertaining, however he has to do it, but these guys aren't really TV showmen, and neither of them are particularly good at hyping a fight.
Still, it's worth watching the video to get you ready for the HBO pay-per-view clash on December 8.
