How about this. Im from san jose ca, they have small shows ocassionaly. Nothing big. Biggest card ive seen put on here was andre ward's 13th fight against some scrub, co heaslined by antillon vs bobby pacquiao.

But there are 4 boxing gyns, 2dozen mma gyms that also teach boxing, and I have some buddies that teach boxing at local rec centers to at-risk kids. So a very substancial percentage of the population has some degree of boxing training. Would we be considered a boxing town??

A boxing town is a place that has cards, that not only attract large crowds, but where you can feel a tangible buzz in the arena and leading up to the fight.

been to fights in Puerto Rico, NY, Las Vegas, Atlantic City & Miami. All atract great crowds but if I was to pick top amongst them, Imma say Vegas & the weakest is Miami. I was impressed with New York though. The Garden was a great atmosphere leading up to the Cotto-Margarito II fight.

so to answer the TS question, I go by fan support, attraction, IQ towards the sport and the atmosphere they give towards the fights and cards.

I went to watch boxing while in Vegas thinking one of the big hotels sports bars would be screening it and none of them were. They were showing some bouncyball game instead.

Honestly, I don't think there is such a thing as a boxing town. Maybe somewhere in Cuba or Mexico but probably not even then. Team sports take precedence almost everywhere.
