Boxing is a pure fighting style , your first and foremost defense and attack mechanism aka you arms and fist.
We a not very dissimilar from felines in that regard.
As long as there are humans punches will be thrown and there will always be people that love to box.

And therefor the will alwasy be a foundation for boxing as a sport.

Besides that boxing have such a huge and important history behind that people will alwasys be drawn to it

I don't think that would work. The UFC pays it's fighters very little and keeps most of the money. Boxers won't put up with that. There must be at least 20 boxers who make more money each year than any UFC fighter so boxing is not dead yet. Ward is making over a million bucks tonight and he is not even in the top 10 as a moneymaker. Do UFC guys get over a million for one fight?

Don't get me wrong, I know there is entertainment and talent in boxing, hell I even follow the career of Moisés Fuentes, but the promotion and exposure is now almost zero worldwide.

In boxing now, you're either a superstar, or a non entity, its a shame.

Until all boxing falls under one umbrella the same way the UFC controls mixed martial arts it has no chance.

There is no excuse for shit like "tune up fights", the whole idea of that is preposterous (use a dictionary for that one Yanks). How can anyone justify a "tune-up"? The best should fight the best everytime.

The way to save boxing is to have some cunt with a load of dough create an organisation, all fighters under contract, and you either fight the best, or fuck off.

In other words, to save the sport I love, copy the UFC business model, or die a slow lingering death.
shut up man.your mates aint **** neither are you. your a ***. u have a pic of men kissing in your avy. regardless you dont matter. and if its dead ten why post on a boxing forum. who gives a **** mainstream music is dead too . ****s only alive to those who truly love it and arent spoonfed and want to go out research it and get it like books or anything with quality. so te people still following boxing are the purist and ones who are true fans anyway. point blank like with music and anything else.

If you follow a buisness model follow one that will grow and keep generating not one that has a peak and crash.
anyone who uses the ufc for a model of anything is a clown. the OP is a clown and not a real fan himself. if something is dead its not alive hence there is no forums nor would he be posting

Enlighten me if i'm wrong. But The UFC is like one big promotional company, who also refuses to do business with other companies that were around like StrikeForce, etc. Dana White would only do business with a fighter from another MMA company, if that fighter joins the UFC.

I am asking, not saying this. I don't know, because I don't follow the business of MMA. But this is the impression I got when I briefly was into MMA.

If it like this, then this is no better than Bob Arum only doing business with a fighter who joins Top Rank, and isolating all other promotional companies from big events.

Also, for such a brutal sport, the fighter salaries are disgusting.
