They get ratings relative to HBO and Showtime.

Yes. That's how it works.

When Pacquiao fights the entire country shuts down. One man suffered a heart attack from anxiety while watching the Hatton fight.

This is a phenomenon. Before him, the entire country wouldn't sit down and watch a boxing match.

No way you can tell me boxing dead when it is Boxing Website popping up everyday and it is so many people on youtube with Boxing Channels talking about boxing

Boxing just not as big as it was in AMERICA...but as far as the rest of the WORLD, boxing has actually became more POPULAR for a Global Standpoint...that is the advantage it has over a sport like MMA

Only problem is that in America they don't make the effort to cover boxing on a GLOBAL PLATFORM they just want to focus on what is going on in America...I thought the Super 6 Platform was Great and it clearly helped not only Ward but it also helped guys like Froch...Super 6 was a major boost to Froch Legacy even though he did not win the entire Tournament and quietly it did make Ward a bigger star which many thought would never happen, he is now a Top 5 P4P Fighter

Right, but if, as the article claims:

- 70.1% of 12-17 year olds,
- 66.6% of 18-34 year olds, and
- 56% of 35-54 year olds

are boxing fans, why are none of the major networks especially interested in showing it?

Presumably these people are self-identifying as fans without any qualifying questions to test the accuracy of that self-identification.

Just because boxing has reached new heights there now it doesn't mean it wasn't popular back then.

Its nonsense

17% of the country = boxing fans?

thats 1 in 6 people ... boxing would be a mainstream sport if that was the case ... I doubt you'll find 1 out of 16 people claim they're boxing fans if you go to a busy street of a random big city and ask

mayweather and pac are the only big "household" names ... I doubt its even that big in Mexico or Britain, percentage wise

They are interested. It's just they can't pay the same wages as cable networks like HBO and Showtime. Boxers follow the money. NBC said this was the exact reason they stopped showing boxing, that was around the time they were starting up the new NBC fight night. NBC said they would focus on building their own star rather than paying someone to come over. All the good boxers went to HBO and Showtime. Boxing never got kicked off network TV, it left willingly.

Didn't something like 37 million people in Mexico watch Pacquiao-Marquez III.

You don't measure the health of a sport by mega-events though. You measure its health by the numbers who watch it on a regular basis, a weekly basis if possible.
