When u compare the landscape of boxing, from this point in time of stars/potential stars, compared to 2003 roster from each division, would you say (talent-wise) boxing has progressed or declined?

i believe it has progressed on all levels. never really been a fan of the so called 'mega fights'...they never live up to the hype. great fights just happen. no need for ppv.

i can see the u.s. having a heavyweight champion in the next 2-3 yrs. then it's popularity is going to soar. there are a lot of developing heavyweights coming up through amateur boxing. it's only a matter of time.

I agree, my only question, when did ppv's start up for boxing?

in the 80's. before that it was closed circuit television where u could watch fights on the big screen. i get why they do it....but they have forced ppv fighters on to the public and most of the guys on ppv aren't ppv worthy imo.
