so in other words it has nothing to do with the size of the population, but how much interest there is in the country.

There are various factors. But you can have an enormous population, and if there's no real interest in a particular pursuit, there isn't likely to be anyone good coming out of that pool.

Now, if there's similar interest in the same sport between two countries, and one has a huge population advantage over the other, it stands to reason that the bigger country will have more champions.

Puerto Rico is a grain of salt compared to the top boxing countries. We dont have much to choose from when it comes to any sport since we only have approx. 3.9 million people living at the island. Yet we have managed to become a meca on boxing, basketball, baseball just to name a few sports. Same goes with actors, singers and even a few Miss Universe.

We have produced the best of the best on just about everything when compared per capita vs the world. Nothing to be ashamed here we represent wherever we are. That goes for the good the bad and the ugly too.

Viva mi isla Puerto Rico.

I don't know about basketball (lol), but you guys have done well in certain areas for your population. You have to include, however, the Puerto Ricans living in the mainland U.S. That would bring your total to around eight million. It's not like every famous P.R. comes exclusively from the island.

I'd say most economically developed countries have a few things to be proud of. Puerto Rico has the great advantage of being a U.S. territory. I'm not sure how much that's appreciated. Economic strength is a tremendous asset, to say the least.

Say what you want about the state of Puerto Rico boxing today. But historically, they are probably the #1 exporter of elite world class boxers in a per capita sense.

Puerto Ricans have been to boxing what Samoans are to the NFL.

There is a good chance of that. There's no doubt that P.R. has produced a good number of terrific fighters per capita. But are they really #1? And if so, what does that really mean? As I said before, there are several factors that contribute to success in any area. Cultural interest would be one; economic prosperity would be another.

Default We ok!!

This is the future, the next wave of PR champs.

Boxing results today 1.3.13

Unbeaten WBO #1 lightweight Jose “Chelo” Gonzalez (22-0, 17 KOs) was victorious when Alejandro Rodriguez (18-9, 10 KOs) remained on his stool at the beginning of round six. It was a good fight with Gonzalez coming on as the bout progressed.

Unbeaten WBO #9 super flyweight McJoe Arroyo 12-0, 7 KOs) won by TKO in round four when the corner of Felipe Rivas (16-11-1, 9 KOs) indicated their fighter had taken enough punishment.

2012 Olympian and lightweight super prospect Felix Verdejo (3-0, 2 KOs) scored a third round TKO Jose Santiago (2-4, 2 KOs). Verdejo dropped Santiago in round one and finished him in the third. Time was :26.

Flyweight Olympian McWilliams Arroyo (14-1, 12 KOs) scored a fourth round KO against Miguel Tamayo (14-6-2, 12 KOs).

A WBO Latino flyweight battle between WBO #12 Jonathan Gonzalez (11-0, 10 KOs) and Omar Salado 23-5-2, 14 KOs) ended in a no contest after Gonzalez was injured from an unintentional rabbit punch after just 73 seconds.

Jr middleweight John Karl Sosa (5-0, 4 KOs) scored a one-sided four round decision over Daniel Rodriguez 1-8-1, 1 KO). Scores 40-35 on all cards.

All prospects doing well. You see we have a healthy root. Here they come!!
