Also, UFC goes through a lot of ups and downs. I think there was an over saturation of it a couple of years ago.
agreed. Also, people forget that both Manny and Floyd became huge AFTER they beat DLH. Only people that really knew of Manny before his bout with DLH were true boxing fans and Filipinos. Floyd was a bit more know but thats because his entire family was in boxing and he won an Olympic Gold.
I totally disagree, manny became huge when he had multiple wars with Morales and Barrara. well id say boxing is dying a slow death, ufc is consistently more exciting. Every month theres a great ufc fight card. I agree that there is nothing like a big time boxing match, nobody not even ufc can match the excitement/atmosphere but boxing is running out of stars, canelo cant fight himself, and even a true boxing fan like myself is giving up hope for the sport , I only look forward to mayweather and pacquiao fights n once there gone so will i, what boxing needs is canelo to beat mayweather or pacqiuao, take over the thrown, him beating up has beens like mosley doesnt make me want to order a ppv in the future where hes the headliner, honestly I wish we could Have fights like the one tonight every month because it was a awesome and a very entertaining fight but Theres just not enough talented boxers to do it.
