PPV is NOT the reason boxing has declined. It's a lack of exposure in general.

The UFC has two PPV's a month and they are THRIVING...explain that.

The reason they are doing so well is exposure and big fights getting made when they are supposed to. There are UFC fights on Sp*keTV or Versus ever other night. Whether it's lower tier guys in live fights or replays of past main events from PPV's. Boxing on regular tv? All you've got is ESPN's FNF which happens maybe once a month and it's mostly lower tier guys.

Generally speaking, they also have uniformity which means if there's a big fight to be made you can bet your ass it'll get made. It won't take two years for one of the guys to decide he doesn't want to fight, like the Mayweather/Pac debacle.

Boxing is FRACTURED.

To say PPV is the reason boxing has declined is a simplistic way of looking at it...there's a lot more to it than that.

You have made this statement before with no evidence or business rationale to back it up.Just because your broke ass can't afford PPV does NOT mean that it's bad for the sport.

PPV is good when its used properly. There are only 2 fights I can think of right now that should be on major PPV, may pac and klitchko bros (obviously not gonna happen). The smaller ppv's are good when they give exsposure to niche fighters people want to see. If JCCjr can do 200k then more power to him.

I think boxing has declined because there are too many weight divisions, too many organizations, and no free network TV are more reasons, and there are new alternatives like MMA.

It's because it's what the people want. I think I might have a stroke when I finally see those two in the ring.

I pretty much agree with everything you said, but the UFC's PPVs>boxing's because UFC cards are usually stacked. But just blaming PPV for boxing's decline is silly.
