It's this forum that makes you feel like that. I find myself wanting fighters to lose that I would normally enjoy watching. Wilder springs to mind and kovalev. There's far too many arguments on here these days and not enough sensible discussion.

Iím a fan of the sport, I enjoy watching certain fighters more then others but at the end of the day all fighters canít go on forever so there will always be someone else to watch, but certain fanatics after their hero falls they no longer follow the sport.

I just like watching a good fight no matter who is fighting.

The sport will never die because there will always be the next big thing
yeah um with ya there. And while boxing as sport wont die, if theres no exciting guy that tons of fans wanna see and talk about then theres no money. I mean hbo has canelo and GGG and kovalev and still is getting away from,boxing. It needs pacquiao, mayweather and then the next teir which was cotto, margarito, corrales etc. It cant thrive without top draws though. Look at showtime, they have alot of todays "stars" and there ratings arent very good on average. That what make corporations go away from,the sport. So if millions of ppl flock to a guy or two then its really good for sport. Where as guys like us dont give a fook if its fnf because we dig boxing like that

Even when I'm watching my favorite boxers there is something inside of me thats rooting on the upset. Upsets are the coolest, most compelling thing that happen in pro sports I feel like. Who doesn't wanna see more of them.
