Is it "casual" to not be able to fire off 300 prospects only 2 pro fights in, or just not the most hardcore of the hardcore? Vito Mielnecki (sp)? Yeah, it's true, upcoming guys tend to not even really enter my radar until they've already attained some degree of buzz in their ascent. Only so many hours in a day and I try to do what I can when I can there, but especially in the last couple years I've found myself delving more into history alongside current established contenders and if it means I'll always have one foot in the casual puddle by a certain standard so be it I guess.

What I would suggest though is if you think that's something you'd like to see just up and do it, but persevere. Don't just let it die cos you ain't getting responses if it's something you'd genuinely like to do. That ish takes time and patience... Maybe just write about a new prospect you've uncovered every few days or whatever, bit of a bio maybe, any footage you can find and so on... gradually build up a body of work. Get yourself known as 'the prospect dude' or something. Think about something like Chrismarts 'best I fought' thread... absolute fixture now, certainly amongst the real fans, but no real fanfare and not much notice paid in between postings. Doesn't make it any less appreciated. Or for those familiar with the BN24 forums CSTs magnum opus of the carnival barker style fighter bios.

Anyways. Just a thought... only you know how much time you got for that ish or how much you'd like to see or do it, but if you were to I know there'd be a lotta folk on here who'd really appreciate it even if you ain't gonna get hundreds of replies. Sad thing is it's always the provocative and contraversial threads - the trolling and Bullchit - that get the most responses but there's a strong undercurrent of less vocal fans who actually wish there was more of the kinda threads that you're talking about.

Then make it your business to tell people about 'em, man.

Gonna say the same as I did to MySpace though... these things can take some time to get going. If that's what you wanna talk about though stick with it and the serious dudes on here will apreciate it.

...my comment wasn't intended as discouraging or antagonistic btw. I'd welcome more threads and discussion like that to hover over like a vulture and get back to a point where I could actually fire off a respectable meaty prospect list. Definitely

Pretty much a useless thread. As if this is a normal sport where fighters fight 2-3 times a year. Man you hardly see these fighters on a regular basis.

I donít tag my threads and I often forget about anything I post within an afternoon or so. Doesnít matter to me since my brain is an brilliant chit factory that is constantly turning out brilliant chit ha.

The prospect guy is a thankless job. I do mean job in every sense of the word as you have to sift through an endless stream of b.s. to find the diamonds. Itís all to point out some kid that is around the corner who you wonít be able to put money on any time soon anyway. Not to mention it makes you lose touch with what is happening in the big leagues. Iím right where I want to be as a fan in regards to how my attention is spread.

Yíall are Basura
I kind of agree with you, i don't pretend to know why it is but i believe is cuz this sport is so manipulated by business that is not even important if the kid is a good or bad boxer, the casual lead the revenue.
I talk about prospects with the people that knows them, mostly about locals, i totally understand what u r saying.

Boxing is structurally put together in a stupid ass way. The disinterest from fans is a byproduct of that not vice versa. In most sports everyone has the same or similar path to pro success. In boxing you can be a sellable guy & have a career with subpar boxing skills. Boxing is too much of a business & less of a sport than any sport around it's level of popularity or bigger. Boxing should convert to a more sport like structure & then you'd have more more data to speculate on talent vs these days when it's about who can sell out the most seats vs guys who can fall down pretty.
