Some folks around here know that I covered the sport in print and broadcasting for almost 20 years . I wrote for RING and Boxing Illustrated in the 1990's, and broadcast for Fox Sports, Sportsvision, and The Sporting News Radio Network, covering dozens of chapionship fights, and the 1992 and 1996 olympics (from chicago, never been to an olympiad).
I also made a 2002 audio documentary on the Jqack Dempsey Gene Tunney 1927 fight. That nearly landed me a historic advisor gig for the Ron Howard film Cinderella Man.
I've interviewed Ali, Foreman, Sugar Ray Leonard, Larry Holmes, Tyson, Riddick Bowe, Lennox Lewis, De La Hoya, Roy Jones, Chavez, Archie Moore, among others, and a ton of the TV and print guys who cover the sport.
I don't dislike UFC/MMA, but can't say I've been interested enough to turn my Boxing interest into a writing or broadcasting gig for that type of fighting sport.
So I ask that this doesn't become a MMA thread (we can make another one if those fans truly want that)
Boxing is on the decline , but there are still good fights and fans here who've wanted my 2 cents on certain match-ups and fighters, so feel free to ask or discuss any bouts here.
