    Define care.

    There’s only 4-5 boxers in the world people actually care enough about to buy their fights or go and see them (location dependent)

    I'm definitely flying up to NY for the next Loma fight.

    He's the only must see boxer right now.

    Otherwise i watch the fights as they come.

    About 20 of them... but these days Im about the fight, not the fighter (as much)

    Mostly gone are the days Im watching any fighter in a waste of time tune up/showcase fight. If its not a significant fight I probably aint watching, no matter whose being showcased. Which probably explains why Im so distant from the sport these days.

    Horrible top 50 list but I watch pretty much all of the guys above barring a couple from the midget weight classes below 118.

    I counted about 19 but there are others not on this list I also care about.
    Also depends largely on who they fight. If a fighter I care about is on TV having a tune up, meh, I'll still watch but won't go out of my way to get home fast if I'm out/job to watch.
