Default Re: Whats wrong with boxing? PPV for Tua v Barrett is #1

I thought PPV was a symbol of signficance not mediocrity. Is this the only way to finance fights these days?

Whats wrong with boxing?
It would be a good FNF main event here in the states. If Tuesday Night Fights were still on USA Network, this fight would be a perfect main event bout. However there just aren't many TV dates out there, and even if ESPN were to send out feelers, it would not be in their budget because the asking price would probably be too high. This is why there are so many independent PPV events and webcasts.
