Sorry, that was a poorly worded sentence. Boxing had the highest grossing PPV events for 07 and 08, and yes they were both DLH. However HBO boxing had the highest grossing single year in its history in 2007. That's the result of more than any single boxer.
I'm not delusional. I know the Golden Boy's departure will affect boxing, but to think it will die isnt close. Ricky Hatton and Pac have whole fucking countries bat-shit crazy about them. And with those two having all but signed to fight Feb 2009, I think boxing will pull through...
