The problem with boxing is that it lacks momentum. It manages to get impressive numbers, and gets people talking, before it suddenly falls flat on its face, for example 2011 ended brilliantly, but 2012 started horribly. If they made a straight run with Broner, Chavez Jr, Canelo, threw in some great fights and Marquez who I think will get more attention now they could build more momentum. The fans will be more willing to watch the lesser known fighters.

I think someone like Seth Mitchell will create problems when Wlad and Vitali retire. HBO and his promoters KNOW he is not champ material, however they will get some trinket belts into his hands and market him as the HW champ. Meanwhile RTL in Germany will have their own champ, and the UK will market either Price and Fury as their champ. I see the next gen as being more of a ratings game with each respective country wanting big numbers for themselves rather than building a strong champion. There will be no final goal, no Klitshcko everyone aspires to beat.

Broner last fight did over 1.4 million so i think his fight vs demarco is a sure thing to break 1 million

Golovkin got 685k viewers, which I think was the lowest before Lara-Vanes. But Golovkin didn't have to compete with a Showtime card.
