Re: Boxing is now so far behind the UFC its sad
Boxing is in no more competition with UFC than it was with football or basketball...in fact boxing is probably in more competition with basketball, because I think more would-be top American fighters end up playing that sport rather than boxing.
UFC has a niche, good for them! But that has nothing to do with boxing. Boxing always has fans and to be honest it is a more exciting sport. People want to see someone hit in the mouth, not a couple of guys mounting eachother for position. Its not crowd pleasing. Most of the people watching UFC, are watching for the striking in hopes that someone gets knocked out.
BTW, that UFC card from Saturday was some of the most boring action I have seen!
