The US isn't the only boxing market, but good job trying to nuthug.
You've obviously haven't seen the massive support it has in Germany.
Why is is that, when discussing combat sports such as boxing and MMA, people seem to think you can simply say "nuthugger" and expect to be taken seriously when the word itself is a stupid fanboy fad?
And if you don't think that boxing is on the cusp of dying worldwide, you need to take a broader view of the sport. As an art, it will never go under but, as a mainstream attraction, the sport is losing its luster. It just happens to be happening more rapidly in the US since the US is the birthplace (financially) of the sport that seems to be on its way to replacing boxing as the premier contact sport.
And you can either blame this on America's frat boy blood lust or on the fact that the balance of power in US mainstream boxing is way off the mark.
