    Yes

    Just the way men are now filtering into women's sports

    Soon Womens boxing will be overrun by men with big Johnson's.

    Shields Vs Errolina Spence will be a big fight

    I sometimes try to think about the reason why women's boxing shouldn't be as good as women's MMA, or at least as successful, and I can't come up with much. Apart from boxing's structural failings.

    Not as long as there are shorter rounds for women, that's for ****ing sure.

    There has to be big rivalries and interesting personalities, like Marshall and Shields. Otherwise nobody would care.

    Lol bruh I’m not a feminist and I didn’t express an opinion I asked a question. Also I think your the toxic one for getting so angry about a post on the internet.

    I doubt it. Is there any female sport as popular as the male equivalent? Not even WTA tennis is as popular as ATP tennis but that's as probably close as it gets. So it could become very popular just never equal the men's.

    No, never. For similar reasons as to why the WNBA will never come close to touching the NBA. The athletics on display in most women's sports is, to put it simply, drastically worse by comparison. And when the average joe schmo plops down in their lazyboy and turns on the tv to watch some sports, usually they want to be entertained by athletes, and the best athletes are typically way more exciting and entertaining to watch than bad athletes.

    no though there have been a lot of good fights and matchmaking lately

    i just dont see a deep enough talent pool to create a big enough following. there are some stars and when they meet the fights are usually good
