Not really that hard to figure out... cause there are a lot more boxers to support, unlike the UK, Philippines, Germany etc...

It is weird when you consider how many of us went to the Groves/DeGale fight for example - and who knows if both of these lads will get to world-level.

Boxing is a pretty marginalized sport in this country, too. I suppose it's all about T.V times, T.V money and logistics. The US is huge.

Why do boxers have to come to the US to be truly recognized?

I think at this stage that is almost exclusively down HBO and Showtime.

The Heavyweights certainly don't have to go to America - infact, it would be nonsensical for them to do so.

Possibly b/c a lot of the guys you mention have at one time or another had unpleasing styles. Also, at times were matched up as stars being groomed. Also, NFL, MLB, and the NBA..(A. football, baseball and basketball) Finally, they don't really have a built in ethnic fan base or nationalistic fanbase to drive them.

It's really a mixed bag nationality wise in the US, so a pakistank person may not feel very driven to support a Hatian fighter just b/c they both live in America.

Ward does a decent job rallying people in Oakland, Pavlik was doing a great job getting support from Ohioans.. Ppl won't follow a guy just b/c they are good and are fellow Americans.
