Why aren't their anymore elite American HW boxers now a days??? Money.

/thread.
Make your mind up.

And just saying 'money' isn't much of an answer. How the sport is organised dictates how much money it generates and how well it gets promoted. Boxing is unfortunately a 'free market' sport where a few greedy individuals gobble up most of the profits and nobody looks out for the sport itself.

If you want a sport to thrive, then you need a big chunk of the resources to end up with a body which is actively trying to get young people interested in the sport, and that actively supports local clubs. Who's doing that in boxing? Bob Arum?
