Default Re: Boxing is Dying?

Bernstein makes some great points. The mainstream media will talk more about a horse race or a dispute between two NASCAR drivers than about fights not including Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather. But as far as the talent level in the sport goes, no doubt boxing is in a depression right now. When you have guys like Saul Alvarez, Erislandy Lara, and Miguel Cotto at the top of 154, Amir Khan and Sergio Martinez ruling 140 and 160, and a 46, nearly 47-year old Bernard Hopkins sitting at the light heavyweight throne, you know boxing has seen better days.
