yeah I always assumed it was Michigan, but when I looked into it, Pennsylavnia really was the best imo. I'll post the retired fighters soon

Philly had one of the best venues for boxing IMO (granted, I am a little biased) in the Blue Horizon. I went there a couple of times with my dad, not a bad seat in the house.

Penn has Michigan in quantity, Michigan has quality over Penn. Philly is arguably the best city
