Ortiz turned into a pansy for some reason...
Sure there are some explosive young guys coming up, but they just don't tick with me. What guys are you keeping your eye on?
Before Mayweather and Pacquiao blew up and got a huge fanbase, i'm sure everyone was asking the same thing. They were scared about what fighter will they root for once their fighter is gone. I'm sure some fans don't find any fighter to root for, instead just remember how good their favorite fighter was.
Personally, my favorite all time fighters were Roy Jones and Jermain Taylor, but since their retirements[and "returns"], i've found peace in being a "fl-omo". Once Floyd, Marquez, and B-Hop are gone, I got guys like Chad Dawson, Andre Ward, Adrien Broner, Andre Berto, Canelo Alvarez, Yuri Gamboa. I think from those, Canelo and Broner will be very big PPV stars. Andre Ward will be like the #1 P4P fighter for a long time. I'm excited for Gamboa's career but he has to hurry up. I'd also like to see more of Argenis Mendez and Javier Fortuna, who are both top 10 super Featherweights. Joan Guzman is being Joan Guzman, at least he's staying active though.
