Default Chart of total bouts per year archived in Boxrec database

Just fumbling through boxrec and found this pretty interesting. The black dots are what I drew in estimate of a possible true total. Extrapolate what you like

Edit: in order to make this more of a discussion topic- Do you believe the modern boxing era is in a state of decline?

Very interesting.....this figures show that at least in over all production boxing is a slight upswing, relative to the last 30 years.

Nice work! One possible explanation for the dip is that boxrec stopped including amateur bouts in their records at some point.

Repost this in classic - it should be fun.

Between 1959 and 1979 there were no more than roughly 15k bouts per year, possibly hitting as low as 9-10k

No prob, boxrec states they don't include amateur bouts in their totals, nor bareknuckle bouts

if the growth continues considering population, competition could surpass that of the peak days.
