They used to have Boxing in my area decades ago, but I guess kids in school got too rough with it?? I don't know, I love it. And Bay Area boxing isn't that big, sure we have Andre Ward, but still no one really follows boxing that much. I'm not talking casual fans either man, I love the whole history boxing has, there's so much to learn.
EDIT: Oh yeah, a lot of kids I talked to who like MMA don't like boxing for it's "12 round boring fights" I don't think anyone even takes the time to understand the sweet science. It's magnificent to watch folks like James Toney on youtube, I wish I knew about the sport or was born in an earlier decade..
I'm Filipino so I have Pacquiao in my time(Filipino parties for Pacquiao = I've seen all his fights), but there's too much controversy around him and I enjoy defensive boxing a lot more.
