I think Boxing needs that one MAJOR event per year...may not just be one night...it could be a 3 day weekend type of thing that focuses on the best 5 fights to be made...imagine this:
*Opening night featuring appearances by Boxing and other sports legends, photos with legends, brand promotions etc
Donaire vs Rigondeaux
Gamboa vs Rios
*Second night featuring various events, interactive games (like Fight Night tournaments, or pillow-glove fighting, etc...fun stuff), train with fighters, various brand promotions (like Pepsi or Nike doing a branded promotion around boxing) etc.
Canelo vs Cotto
Ward vs Dawson
*Raffle drawings, give-a-ways, winning ringside seats, celebrities, photos, etc..
Martinez vs Chavez Jr.
Mayweather vs Pacquiao
Each night would have 2-3 major fights...this would be a planned weekend...all fighters stand to make a lot of money since it's a major, planned once a year event...all held at the same stadium...etc..keep in mind there may be a few off tv bouts featuring up and coming stars, showcases
It wouldnt make that much of a profit. The same people who would pay to see a Floyd Pac fight, will also pay to see gamboa-rios fight. All of the boxing fans are just that. Boxing fans
