you can pretty much look in every division and see matchups that
never have and never will happen, even though there in the top 4
or 5 fighters at that weight. they just sorta fight around each other
and when the fights do happen its never prime vs prime, there is
always factors which make it less of a superfight, like MAB's age
against JMM, EM's long career against Pac or Roys pride against
tarver. delahoya had size but was very inactive & had **** stamina

Boxing needs real contests with real decisions and real promotion.
Like UFC (i was MMA's biggest hater for so long but its winning)

Only in boxing is someone able to make $20 million for less than one hour in the ring (PBF's last fight). The rewards in boxing are great for talented athletes.


.......yeah, an hour's work and many months of prep, not to mention years of aspiration. Get in the NBA and the money comes larger and faster. But I agree, the salvation of boxing is coming from abroad.

There are less big stars from the United States in boxing at present than there have been in the past but this doesn't represent a decline in the sport. Rather it reflects a shrinking world and a growing awareness of the world, which means that fighters from the philipines, the former eastern bloc, africa and australia can become known as well as fighters from North America and Europe. It's amazing how much the world has changed since the second world war, and with the coming of the internet it's an even more local world.

Boxing talent that would never have been seen in the past is now commonplace and that can only be a good thing.

You see arenas in Europe filled up and boxing's popularity is only behind soccer in Latin American countries. You have fighters like Manny Pacquiao and Koki Kameda who have captivated their respective countries.

The only thing wrong right now with boxing, at least in the US, is that it's not on free TV anymore. That would help bring in more fans. But the true fans have no problem paying a few bucks a month for HBO and/or Showtime and you can usually get a few people together to split a PPV.

When I look at boxing, I don't really see a sport that needs to be saved...
In Britain, the cultures have changed so much that there's nothing that can be done to save it quite frankly.

It's become almost alien over here.

Boxing will be fine. It needs some tweaking but it is still a great sport.

I love boxing and always will. I've tried watching MMA, but thiers too much rolling around for me. Saying that I think there is too much politics in boxing and it's the governing bodies, promoters that are holding boxing back, too many belts etc.

Whether you prefer boxing or mma, its almost impossible to deny that the ufc's setup of its organization is better than boxing's right now.

You've hit the nail on the head brian99. I'd love to think that boxing could try to turn things around, but that will mean the organizations losing money.
