How much do robberies actually hurt boxings popularity?
It gets said after every robbery and it seems logical, but i was thinking about it and havent there always been robberies in the sport? Even when boxing was at its most popular robberies came and went, and people still tuned in for the next fight.
Hell by the sounds of it in the old days you had the entire sport controlled by the mob.
Is it because with far more people having access to watch the fights/find footage of it, more are able to comment on what they saw rather than having to go by newspaper reports?
What do you guys think, do robberies really hurt boxings popularity?
