When the highest paid athlete isn't a boxer il agree with your friend, when the richest sports deal in history isn't with a boxer il agree with your friend (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) . Boxing is far far far from a lost art

canelo filled an arena with 40 thousand people

I don't think he was talking in terms of viewers. I believe he was talking in terms of appreciation for the technique and dedication the pure craft instead of being a sock-em-bop-em impersonater

You need to agree with his friend then lol.... sports illustrated named Floyd the highest paid but according to Forbes Tiger Woods is the highest paid athlete of 32013. D Rose clocked in higher then him on the list. Floyd is tied for 14th with Manny

I would say it's the klitschko brothers


I definitely agree, I don't see anyone appreciating what they bring in terms of skill in the ring. All I hear is how boring they are

I'd also throw B-Hop in there and Marquez, no matter what they do they get no respect for it

It's amazing the level of skill they have isn't appreciated by the fans. But when they retire I believe the fans will give them their just due

Ah gotcha, in Floyd's fight against Guerrero I was amazed how good he looked , how fast and slick he still is , just over all how great he was, I was expecting to hear people agree with me , but most people thought he was boring which kinda shocked me . If people can't appreciate a display of skill like that then I really dunno what to say to them..

And in response to the above posters yes , bhop is amazing as well as Marquez and they don't get their due respect either.
Especially bhop performing like that a 48, beating young champs using every veteran trick in the book, every ounce of the ring , he amazes me with each fight .

to be fair...a lot of dudes on that list get paid from endorsements of which floyd has very few. his money comes from direct sales...ppv/tickets. the other guys also participate in sports where the overhead is much greater than boxing. if you look at it in terms of return on investment....boxing cannot be touched.
