Post Hopkins and De La Hoya Join Forces

The year was 1919, almost 85 years ago, when four legendary actors decided that it was time to set a new direction for the entertainment industry. Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffith - the biggest names in the industry at that time - formed United Artists, a move that revolutionized the movie business forever.

Today, Oscar De La Hoya and Bernard Hopkins are pleased to announce their own bold move to revolutionize the boxing industry, as the two future Hall of Famers are joining forces to resurrect the sport of boxing and give fighters a platform from which they can fulfill their dreams of becoming world champions.

Hope this union will really benefit the fighters and fans alike. Boxing as a sport is losing its fans, and the primary reason is that the people today can easily see through false gimmickries.
Fans deserve to see real fights, not scripted fights. So DLH and Hopkins should deliver real fight entertainment.

I've always been a skeptic, it does however look good on paper and once these two get rollin' there will definitely run into some formidable opponents w/ more money than Oscar and Bernard have made in their lives. The next thing of course is I wanna hear what steps or plans they're gonna be taking to take the sport to a higher level.
