^ from: irrelevantaxiom.wordpress.com - Is boxing dead? A lot of people would say so.
Most of the big time boxing matches are on pay-per-view. You can, however, see some free fights on cable/satellite. Some of them aren't even big-name fighters, but they do
I personally still like a good boxing match. I'm usually finding myself saying "get in there!" and "let him have it!"
Here are two of my personal favorite boxers:
Boxing Videos.Here is one match from the Baby Bull (Juan Diaz in the navy blue trunks with white trim):
^ Juan "Baby Bull" Diaz vs. Michael Katsidis - Houston's own Juan Diaz is one of my personal favorite boxers. In addition to being a good boxer, he also wants to be an attorney. Juan Diaz fan? Become a Fan of Juan Diaz's Facebook Fan Page!
Here is Round 8 of the "Rumble in the Jungle" between M. Ali and George Foreman in 1974 in (the country once known as Zaire):
Dead, to me, means... DEAD. You know- nobody wants to get into the sport, nobody longer cares about the sport, nobody wants to follow the history of or learn more about the sport. And so I think boxing is only dead for those who think it's dead. Don't forget- boxing is not only a men's sport; there are also women who box. Most people don't usually think about the feminine side of most sports, which is usually why most people couldn't care less for the WNBA.
Therefore, I don't think boxing is as dead as what most people think it is. I have absolutely NOTHING against mixed-martial arts. Thing is, many people just aren't intrigued or interested anymore in a good boxing match. Boxing is still a competitive violent sport. I think it's easier taking in a boxing match than the most violent of MMA matches. I still love boxing. I don't watch boxing often (or especially any of the free TV fights) as I do pro wrestling, but I still have plenty of love for boxing. Boxing may be dead for many people, but not as dead as most people perceive it to be.
