Default Lou Dibella gives Dana White a big thumbs up!

Dibella: "Boxing cannot replicate White's model with UFC, but we can certainly learn some lessons from his shows, Dibella stated" The overall quality of our biggest shows from top to bottom is embarrasing. If a ppv starts at 6 or 9pm out west, people have to sit through 2 to 2 and a half hours before the main event. We have to draw fans in during those 2 hours and entertain them"

Dibella went on to admit that UFC/MMA has not done damage to boxing, but the sport (boxing) has self inflicted wounds.

"We have done it to ourselves, said Dibella. We dont promote for the longterm. There is no longterm plan for our sport. Fights are a series of independent events. There is no longterm plan by the promoters or the networks"

He's wrong, the long term he's talking about is a contract with hbo, showtime to bring them fights. Then you have the fighter who is a long term investment.

Problem is, they keep investing in these old/washed up fighters. RJJ, Hopkins, Holyfield, etc... Instead of trying to promote and invest in new talent.

In addition to that, Dibella is saying that boxing has to be more fan friendly, and find ways to entertain the fans in between matches like in UFC.

If the fight is good, 1 minute don't make no differnce. Dibella may soon be going into mma or teaming with White, cause to me that dont make sense. How much are you going to entertain for 1 minute.

But i do recall i went to one boxing card in l.a one time and between rounds they had the music and they had girls dancing in the ring besides another girl walking with the round card. Was entertaining, but so were the fights.

I don't watch ufc, but don't those fight last an average of 10 minutes? So they are "forced" to entertain the crowd.

Boxing is fine, just make competitive fights. Doesn't even have to be top boxers, but just make competitive fights.

Good post. Dibella is absolutely right.

No, the long term he's refering to is investment in bringing new fans to the sport, as well as keeping old fans around by having better all around cards.

He's refering to the fact that most promoters, for the most part, are only thinking about the immediate financial benefits, rather than sacrificing a little 'now money' to invest in the future of the sport like the UFC does with its FREE network television cards, and PPV cards that are filled with quality fighters.

.

Exactly. Problem is, many diehard boxing fans are in denial about the demise of our sport. Yet it is us and only us who can force the higher ups to change thier ways.
