and I dont believe that Boxing is gonna compete with the UFC I think there two different sports, comparable yes because there is boxing in the UFC but there different sports
there as different as Rugby is to football.. the only sport I See boxing competing with because it is similar to it is kickboxing, and of course boxing takes the crown there.
The UFC talks about boxing because hell who else are they gonna compete with in the states? Pride isnt over here yet.. if Pride blew up like the UFC and came to the states (doubt they will) it be UFC vs Pride not UFC vs Boxing, cuz UFC and Pride are the same sport.. and there lies the problem, Boxing is unified and MMA isnt so how can MMA compete with Boxing? Yea its gonna be the #1 combat sport in the world im sure of that.. but I also believe that Boxing has been around for 100 years, MMA is a new thing.. you been watchin Boxing for years and years and a new thing comes along of course its gonna start off with a bang, it will eventually die down but I still believe once it dies down that it will still rank over boxing.. and it has nothing to do with MMA, but more-so that boxing is hurting itself right now but still in good shape.. The Contender gets great ratings and everything and Boxing still fills the stands ( still dont know what fights you were watchin ) And they still bring in a lot of PPV buys, but if the HW division continues to be weak there in trouble..
Dana White says that Boxing is in deep crap when De La Hoya retires.. I dont believe that my problem with De La Hoya is he could save boxing! if he fought PBF that would draw so many viewers.. yet he keeps rejecting the fight, PBF is the best boxer out right now and the most marketable boxer.. not DLH so Boxing could survive without DLH cuz its got a lot of other stars.. but Boxing could really use a DLH/PBF fight right now and some heavyweights as well.
