I have one friend who follows boxing like I do, although he's fairly new to it, fell out then fell back in. I have another friend who's a fan but doesn't read more than an occasional article on yahoo about boxing, and another friend who LOVES BOXING but doesn't know **** about it, (he's fun during fights).
My wife likes boxing, but she likes the big events & ppv (probably just cause it costs money) she'll watch occsional fights on FNF or HBO BAD but mostly its got to be 2 big named guys.
One co-worker who kind of follows but never watches any fights, (too busy).
Other than that, the rest of my friends don't give a F###
