theres a reason why boxing has been around for all this time.
MMA was never a threat to boxing.

BAD has had good shows but UFC has put on as good as BAD if not better.


All I am saying is comparing Elite XC to HBO to dumb, Elite XC is second rate in mma.

All I have to say is that the Bernard Vs Pavlik fight alone last saturday had more action than the UFC 89 that was on the same night.

No surprise. After Kimbo's jaw got exposed, I expected EliteXC to fall on rocky times. He was their name.

Which one had more PPV buys? Because that's all that matters to the people that control the sport of boxing.

Boxing long ago ceased to be a sport about putting out the best fight. Case in point, all the fans that b*tch on here about fighters ducking opponents which makes up 3 out of every 4 threads on this forum (honestly, get a room). Boxing long ago went into "it's just a way to make a lot of money" mode, so boxing putting up a better fight and crowing about that is pretty ridiculous considering boxing's business model is the antithesis of that and is instead geared toward maximizing the rate of return by charging $50 for a PPV for what is half the time a crap fight.

As far as all the networks that show boxing, when was the last time there was a big fight in boxing not on PPV? You want me to get hyped about the boxing on ESPN or Versus, fine, put a decent fight or a title defense on regular TV. UFC does that occasionally, why doesn't boxing?
