I grew up watching boxing among other sports. My whole family watched sports all the time and every time a big fight was on tv we would all be around the tv. Probably during the Ali era it became number one for me.

Funny but in the seventies I started watching every fight that was on tv and never stopped.

Default Ali-Frazier I

I was born in 1961, so very young when Ali-Frazier I happened, I remember as a kid we bought boxing gloves and my friends come over and we would box and pick who we were, I always Picked Frazier, because at that time, no one like Ali, I mean no one, but as time went on he became one of my favorites after I realized he was more show than the crap he talked.

But Frazier as Champ got us somewhat interested, but it was the big fight between them, that got me 100% invested in boxing, but since it's not what it use to be, I gone to the UFC more, but I still watch the big Boxing matches., but not everything they way I use to do.

As a child in the 80s

Rocky 3 put me onto boxing as it had mr.t, rocky, and hulk hogan.. A trifecta of awesomeness in the 80s..

Then it was all the cool nicknames.. If you didn't have a nickname that was awesome, then I thought you sucked...
Iron Mike
Sugar ray
Hitman hearns
Marvelous marvin
Macho Camacho
Real deal holyfield
Boom boom Mancini

That's what first drew me to the sport.. By 1990 i was a dedicated fan and knew all the fighters regardless of their nickname
