Default Re: Australian Boxing A Disgrace

The number of "fans" is not growing, the number of punters with disposable income is growing. A couple of cunning promoters have done very well to attract "new fans" to the wrong blokes under the banner of big time boxing.
These punters develop strong allegiances to their favourite and bag the shit out of the sport when these Briggs dramas happen.

IF, I don't know how, but if you could get these fighters you speak of in front of these punters before the Green-Mundine shows disappear then I think that they would get real followers. Real followers who are seeing real contests aren't so fickle and the sport would actually grow.
