QUOTE (Big Slim @ May 7 2009, 12:01 PM)
Actually at the party I was at a few folks were whining about paying all that money for two rounds. Sometimes I feel like there's something inherent about boxing that compels people to bitch no matter what. Even hardcore fans like us here tend to tear fighters we don't like down more than build fighters we do like up.
But yes to reply to the original poster this fight has brought boxing back into the spotlight for a bit.
That, Big Slim is the Quote of the month.
There's little to nothing I could add to a statement like that, other than -- Boxing fans are a peculiar bunch.
Boxing needs a facelift, a new Public Relations campaign ... Something!! Because it lags far behind other sports in popularity. And yet there is no other sport like it.
Pac vs Hatton was one shining moment in the sport this year .... but we need a few more.
Hopefully Clottey vs Cotto will become a FOTY candidate followed by a Mayweather vs Marquez sleeper battle.
