The boxing will even more on the rise due to this historic fight between Floyd vs Pacman.
Why? Because the boxing fans are going to be enlarged by this greatest fight. Many more unaware to boxing will start to have boxing interest due to the impact of the world media promotions. Besides there were great and strong and young undefeated boxers nowadays that could awake the illustrious sports minded people in the persons of GGG, Deontay wilder that might possibly redeem the heavyweight era.

Sure Pacquiao vs Mayweather will generate worldwide attention to boxing but speaking of boxing in long term popularity is rather uncertain. GGG, not charismatic enough and he doesn't have a huge following. Im implying future crossover stars. Future PPV attraction. None.

Back then you could already see where to pass the torch. Ali to Leonard to Tyson and De la Hoya to Mayweather to Pacquiao. Now what???

Specially if Manny will win. The boxing media will even more speaks boxing greatness and the issue of being a GOAT possiby heated as long as no one would make Manny defeated. There would be a probable issue to match GGG vs Pacman because of a big money on the line. Who knows? People has no satisfaction as long as there's no one would who can defeat the champion so long as the legend is alive and able to compete. It is the breath and life of sports. As long as there's at least one that people want to see fighting or compete it will go on the rise.

In other words, the future of boxing after Manny and Floyd is unclear.

You can observe and watch the youtube on how many new children who are so talented in boxing. If Manny will win, he will create a dream to the youth and will be a role model of being so rich through boxing. Many may take sugar ray leonard or hagler or manny as a perpetual idol. Aside from this many boxing fans will not allow a decline of boxing.

There were so many strong fighters nowadays. GGG might not be that popular today but if he will continue to fight and win he might be like Foreman. The likes of Walters who defeated our very own donaire and Crawfod who defeated a very slick gamboa could be a new sensation who knows?
