Back before boxing was a niche sport. Back when the HW champ was the baddest man on the planet and feared by all. No one has that same respect for guys like Fury, Wilder and AJ as they did for Tyson, Ali or Holyfield. It’s so sad. Watching highlights of guys like Foreman, Tyson and Liston made me a boxing fan. As I felt the aura and fear they imposed on those surrounding them. Now we see too much of the boxers and there constantly winning on social media about contracts purse bids and what not. They all make excuses they all duck each other and none of them are feared or respected like the old guys were. And then I watched an Eddie Hearn interview the other day about how times are tough and he’s struggling to sell tickets. Times are not tough! You’d sell plenty of tickets if you made half decent fights. Calzaghe Vs Roy Jones Jr took place during a depression for goodness sake and they still managed to sell out! But according to Eddie, Fury Vs Chisora hasn’t even sold half of the available tickets! Absurd! A HW title fight can’t even sell half of its available tickets! How has this sport I love gone so far down hill?
