Video analysis: Hershman to HBO could mean big changes for the boxing world

HBO finally made its decision. Showtime's executive VP and GM of sports and event programming has decided to jump from one pay network to another. Hershman takes over as HBO's President of Sports on Jan. 9, 2012.

Under the guidance of Hershman, Showtime became a real player on the boxing scene. He did so with a tiny budget as compared to the bigger HBO. More importantly, he ended the cronyism that became a big reason for the downfall of HBO as a successful player in the boxing world.

Yahoo! Sports' lead boxing writer Kevin Iole joined us to talk about the choice of Hershman and what to expect. Check out Kevin's Thursday column for more details.
