Default What is considered a boxing town???

When you think boxing town...philly or detroit would be the 1st thing that pops into most peoples' heads. But for the rest of the world...what does it take to be considered a boxing town???

Is it the number of pro fighters they produce?
The number of gyms??
The amount of fights held there?

Vegas is considered by many the boxing capital of the world but to my knowledge there's only 2 boxing gyms there and 1 of them is private.(excuse me if this wrong)

But point is...what constitutes a boxing town???

A boxing town is considered by how many fans they attract to the stadium/arena/casino.

Even for the smaller shows, if they still attract fans that is considered a boxing town.

But philly is pretty much 1 of the most common examples of a boxing town...yet when was the last time they had a big show there??

And what about smaller towns like youngstown ohio or lowell massachusetts that have boxing gyms on every corner but just dont have fights put on there.

A boxing town depends on talent output, not shows as such. Just like Mexico is considered a boxing country but doesn't have big shows.

To me a boxing town is a town that produces a lot of fighters, like Philadelphia, NYC, Detroit, Sheffield, Los Mochis, etc.

And what about smaller towns like youngstown ohio or lowell massachusetts that have boxing gyms on every corner but just dont have fights put on there.
There's 3 Arenas here where boxing is held frequently, they're kinda small for a big event, but we also have a bigger arena.

Hopkins had a fight here where fought in the Liacouras center which can hold 10K people, I personally don't understand why they haven't use that center as Boxing Mega event center.

It's located in Temple University and the area is very well lit.

The last show here was the first NBCsports boxing of this year, but to be honest, this is more of a Phillies and Eagles town right now, everything else is second.

they don't have to have a big show, they just need to attract a decent amount of fans to even smaller shows.
