Those old timers who fap to black and white pictures often like to **** on boxing by pointing out that boxing was shown live in Timer Square back in the old days. That's how big it was back then they say. This is nothing new. The guys who like to dismiss boxing as a dying sport or what not will often point out that big fights used to be shown live in Times Square.
I don't get this. Boxing is still shown in Times Square. Don't they know this? Klitschko fights are frequently shown there, as well as Marquez, Froch and Bute and currently Pac-JMM 4 is being screened there. How come these people can go around saying boxing was huge back then because it was shown in Times Square but the same logic isn't applied today?
It's a constant complaint by these old timers who say things like "The HW champ used to be show fighting live in Times Square, that's how important he was." Well the HW champ does fight live in Times Square but I bet that means nothing to them.
