What Boxing Needs to Become Big Again – More Than Just Pacquiao vs Mayweather


Big fights. We know that. Pacquiao vs Mayweather, if and when it happens, might be the biggest purse ever in a boxing match. Big fights and big names bring boxing to the mainstream crowd. True, the mainstream crowd won’t get it on Network channels, it’ll have to be HBO, but the money’s there. The PPV isn’t the problem.

But big fights like this potential welterweight clash between the most popular boxer in the world, despite, or maybe because he’s not American and the undefeated Mayweather are short term fixes (a dangerous word when it involves boxing). There aren’t that many opportunities like and names out there to keep a consistent interest in the sport.
