It's another reason why boxing is doomed. Since you have three different associations and there isn't a formal structure to force these fighters to fight....why should care about boxing if they won't have the fight that everyone wants to see. And there should be a rematch in the contract that they would have two fights minimum. So that's a huge problem.
I also have a problem with the Judges in boxing, but that can always be an issue when you leave it to the judges.
Again, I used to love boxing but it hasn't delivered in a long time. I like UFC but it's not perfect. To me it's a lot more interesting these days.
Should have guessed you were a UFC fan. Funny how the UFC fans come out to rag on boxing right before a big boxing bout.
I'm not gonna get into this anymore in this thread. No point. But based on PPV buys and the amount the fighters are making, boxing is far from dead.
with all due respect, your living in a igloo lol for lack of a better term, boxing is dying a very slow death. Im not sure of your age, and frankly dont need to know but boxing is not pulling in the the young demographic, therfore once the "veteran" boxing fans eventually leaves the earth as we all do. The next generation is not a fan of boxing. Boxing doesnt give the fans what they want to see, and needs to change fast or else there doomed. if mosley beats canelo tonight, hes actually hurting the sport more because canelo is i guess supposed to save boxing some how
or maybe Amir Khan ? lol
The young generation is in love with ufc because they give you every thing that boxing doesnt. Exciting fights, no bs promoters holding the best fights back and heres the key one ... Star power. Yea boxing has the biggest stars as of right now in mayweather and manny but they are really close to being gone, and the UFC has stars lined up. Jon jones, Anderson, Silva, GSP, Jose Aldo. and thats just a few. UFC is now on fox so that everyone can watch, UFC has set up the ultimate fighter here in the USA for years and is filming Ultimate fighter Brazil to constantly bring in new young talent, and the fans get to know them. What is boxing doing to stay above water ? ... oh yea i remember not giving the world what they want to see, and yea i understand thats mostly on the fighters but that doesnt happen in the ufc.
Plus Other than this card, i really cant remember the last time i was looking forward to the under card of a boxing ppv. So at least they are trying to change, and ill be watching, but for years id order a boxing ppv and watch the lakers or another sport on regular cable until the main event, never done that with the ufc. im a fan of both but any one that says that boxing isnt dying is living in there own world.
