A fight like Calzaghe-Hopkins with $11m from site and $6.5 from HBO (never mind Setanta) is probably bringing in more cash than some UFC ppv's and that was on regular HBO.

he's not the best person to throw into a debate of mma vs. boxing. look at his demeanor and disposition.

MMA won't kill boxing,boxing will only benefit from MMA's success.It forces boxing to put on quality shows and action packed undercards.This is what the fans want.That,and reasonable judging.
