Default Re: when did boxing start to decrese in popularity?

From my point of view professional boxing has never been more popular(on a domestic scale anyway) , this is a similar case in places like Germany .

As for America , probably the 70's , as pointed out with SRL and Tyson gaining back some interest and then interest fading after them .
I feel things are picking up at the moment though and at the moment it seems the best are fighting the best , which helps draws fans to any sport .
