No... It's the most disappointing part of boxing. You hype a fight for 4 months and it turns out to be a boring fight. DLH-Mayweather probably did more harm than good to the sport of boxing. It got the whole world watching only to see a bad and boring performance. Boxing lost more fans than gained that night.
Having exciting fights is the most essential part of boxing. It's what brings new people into the sport.
