A new superstar always appears in Boxing.
This, the sooner these guys guys retire & take their stupid fans with em the better.Great superstars come every decade or two so don't worry there's always one right around the corner waiting to get an opportunity just saying.

I have to be honest unless another couple of superstars emerge soon and take on the role of evil and good boxing for me is not going to be the same. Who will take your number one and number two spots for must see PPVs after these masters retire??
When DLH and Trinidad retire... Misery and Gloom

When Ali, Frazier and Foreman retire... Misery and Gloom

When Tyson and Leonard retire... Misery and Gloom

When Holyfield and Lewis retire... Misery and Gloom

When Hagler, Hearns and Duran retire... Misery and Gloom

When Roy Jones Jr. and Bernard Hopkins retire... Misery and Gloom

And the list is never ending yet somehow there's always a fan in this sport that brings this crap up. While I do agree that the retirement of mega-stars is never good but boxing always(and always will) moves on and introduce new stars.

Politics > Balls.

Though it's very clear that most of the blame easily falls on Mayweather who randomly decided to introduce new rules in the sport for this one fight. Not only that but his financial demands seemed to be beyond ridiculous too.

Pac can be replaced quite easily but the talent of a Mayweather and JMM takes years. In the meantime we got some exciting fighters out there that are pleasing to watch I.E. Mikey Garcia, Donaire, Gary Russell JR, Bam Bam, Averado, Trout, Broner, Thurman, Brooks, and a guy I would like to see fight in America, Cleverly. All excellent fighters and potential stars. I won't be bored.
