My kumpare said boxing is dead. Gone are the excitement of fighters like morales, Barrera, margarito, Valero, dela Hoya, glen and nonito donaire , hatton, Jorge solis, David Diaz, Oscar larios, ledwaba, Hussein, Rey boomboom Bautista , darchinyan, Jorge arce, Fernando montiel, Kermit cintron, paul Williams, abner mares, christian mijares, ponce de Leon, Gerry penalosa, etc..

Gone also are the most annoying paclanders that are omnipresent and most annoying and hated on the Internet and boxing forums. Gone are the pinduters too.

Heavywieght is now arising in the persons of Wilder, Fury, Joshua and some undefeated fighters. In fact some of MMA still looking up pure boxing as in higher status due to Mc gregor's defeat in Floyd.
Good boxers with high caliber is going to rise. Stenshin wants boxing so much, that's why he wants a piece of tring to fight Floyd.
Boxing's only failing due to bad judges and referees.

Not only heavyweight, the Superfly division is also rising... If the guys from that division fight against each other, it would be huge... Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, Jerwin Ancajas, Donnie Nietes, Khalid Yafai, JF Estrada, Roman Gonzalez, Carlos Cuadras, Kazuto Ioka are the top guys, while the likes of McWilliams Arroyo, Aston Palicte, Alejandro Santiago and Israel Gonzales are the rising contenders...

Bantamweight and Middleweight are also thicc...

Boxing can be likened to a ferryswheel.... just turning up and down in circle.
The excitement fades at times when bouts are boring and fixed.

If ever, blame its decline to promoters, some boxers, MMA etc.

But boxing will be on forever ... until it is outlawed globally.
