I guess I'm part of the minority (majority) that doesn't enjoy mentally masturbating to images of mostly naked, sweaty men pounding each other bloody. To each his own I guess.

what else would explain the sharp decline in boxing?
Too many promoters creates barriers to seeing exciting match ups
Promoters do a horrible job of marketing lower ranked fighters.  How come people only hear/care about Pac-Man, Mayweather, Klitschko, etc.
No foundation/building blocks set in place to get future generations interested.  Where is the investment into youth programs?  How do you get young kids interested in boxing?  Do you think people wake up one day and decide to follow certain sports?
No TV visibility.  Back in the day there were fights shown on CBS, ESPN, ABC, Showtime, HBO.  Friday Night Fights - where are they now?

yeah, cause boxing fans find some type of sexual gratification in combat sports...

when you watch baseball do you get all hot and bothered when the guy legs out an infield single or crushes a ball to left-center?  You really lack any type of insight sometimes, which is a bit depressing for someone with your supposed intelligence.

no it's not.  there's just as much technique as the 'sweet science', if not more because of the variables of ground fighting.  Each has it's pros and cons, but defo not a bar fight.

100% disagree.  MMA came along after boxing was in the shit.  if it was 1990 and there was an MMA fight between some big white dude named brock and some mexican who shops exclusively at the tapout store yet at the same time there was a tyson holyfield fight, way way way more people would watch the boxing match.  hands down.

I was talking more about UFC than boxing. Boxing is pretty damn irrelevant now.

Just because Joe Rogan is capable of beating an idiot in a debate that doesn't really mean much for what's actually going on with the sport. Maybe in your jujitsu classes everyone likes MMA, but if you asked the average person in the UK there is far more interest in boxing than MMA. I get the impression in the US that's changing, but not over here.

It's starting to. I enjoy good fights from both sports, but the appetite for MMA is growing massively.

It's still pretty much limited to the type of people that were big WWF/WWE fans growing up.

and that's just not true.  40% of UFC fans are females aged 18-35 according to a recent study.

Females didn't watch WWF growing up?
