Default What would happen if a Fighter...

dies in the ring. I am not talking about clubfighters that nobody knows in indian Casinos. Imagine a big PPV card and the star fighter dies in the ring. Or one of those cards on Network TV like CBS. Hopefully something like this will never happen. Do you guys think that would be the end for Boxing as a sport on the big stage?

they wouldnt pronounce him dead in the ring so it would be the same reaction as the others who have died due to injuries in the ring.

deuk koo kim collapsed right after the fight with mancini and was carried out on a stretcher, the mother committed suicide within a year, the referee went into depression and committed suicide after a year or so later and mancini was never the same again.

shortly after, title fights went from 15 to 12 rounds, networks shyed away from boxing from then on.

that fight was the excuse the networks jumped on to shorten the bouts down to 12 rds so they would fit into an hour time slot. all the sanctioning bodies relied heavily on network tv for the steady stream of revenue they provided so they readily agreed to their demands. it wasnt so much public outrage as it was catering to the demands of the networks.

i don't know about that, but i remember there were calls to ban boxing, investigations and hearings were done.

anyway, it was a bad time for boxing... [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
