Won't be much this year. 2011 looks like it sucks for most of the year.

About 4-6 PPVs a year.

but wont pay for Shane vs Pac unless friends come over and chip in or I find a bar that has it.

very low thousands
maybe i'd say shy of two grand
that includes gym membership
god willing the little equipment i own should last for a while but it wasn't free
cable / premium channels (which i wouldnt get otherwise)
and perhaps even airfare if the fight is right
totally worth it
boxing is a huge part of my life
i'll teach my sons to box and help them to grow into fans of the sport
i take unbelievable pride in my involvement with boxing
and my membership in its fanbase
Edit: i've started to "consult" online streams on occasion
a PPV that isnt worth your money shouldnt stuff the pockets of promotors and HBO
not paying for a ppv is a tremendous way to communicate with it's providers
it let's them know they've got to cut out the bull****

Well, Showtime and HBO are about 500 dollars a year. I bought 4 PPVs I believe so that was about 200 dollars. I also attended the Cotto/Foreman fight, that trip was nearly 2000 dollars and I went to Abraham/Dirrell and that was like 50 or so. I spend a lot on boxing. The last few years I have traveled to NYC, Vegas, and Atlantic City for fights. Try to go to two big fights a year.
Yes, to me it is worth it. Boxing is my favorite thing and is a hobby.

Too much, but it's my sport so I gotta deal with it. I make sure I pick only the good fights.

Seems like I will spend the least amount ever this year. Too many fights that should be on regular HBO that are going to PPV that I don't feel like paying for or can't afford to pay for. Usually I have to buy the fight myself and get a 6 pack so we're talking $70 bucks per fight.

Good question I spend a lot of money on Boxing every year I do not really know the amount. I would not have it any other way Boxing is my favorite thing in the world outside of my family.
