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
The popularity of football, basketball and even soccer has skyrocketed in the last 20-25 while the popularity of boxing has declined. Kids want to play what they see on tv every week and be like the athletes in commercials. Therefore its really common sense the majority of talent goes into other sports. I'm not trying to ifer ALL the talent goes elsewhere, but it doesn't help when your amatuer program is in shambles either.
