I think our issues with boxing are due to our issues with boxing

great big athletes have played in other sports for decades like Kareem or Wilt its not like big men werent around in other sports b4
football was popular in the 80's, but it has grown a lot in popularity since then. And Wilt averaged 50 points in one season and broke many rebounding and points records, yet he's not regarded as the GOAT.
The reason for that is because of the competition he was going against then.
