    The sport has turned into a circus act. You have youtubers doing more numbers than actual legit good boxers.

    On the contrary, 2023 is shaping up to be a really solid year.

    Yeah, its terrible. Now with the Fury-Usyk fight off there isn't a single fight on the horizon I am going to pay for.

    Money Mayweather carried the sport. His absence is glaring. At least Jake Paul is creating hype and excitement. And once he wins the WBC cruiserweight title, boxing will start to recover.

    Purses are too high. Lower purses so the best have to fight the best to make money

    All of that is normal, we live in a very feminized society and even the boxers who we see as very manly are actually as girly as one can get for a boxer. Most woman on the street dont pay so much attention to their looks as most pros today, versace boots, going to the barber every week etc.
    There is no real fighting spirit with most of them, boxing is just a job to finance their hedonism.

    Not only do big fights not get made, the undercards are atrocious. They remind me of the small venues you'd see in places like Kentucky, northeast Tennessee, during the late 80's and 90's. Factory workers and gas station attendants making some cash on the side
