WILL BIG PPV NUMBERS HURT U.S. BOXING?

 

Has boxing in the US come to this?

Will this celebrity PPV do better numbers than that of major professional boxing matchups?

Professional boxing in the UK and other countries is thriving!  If this PPV does great, or even good numbers, what does it do to potential super-fights that come on PPV?  Will US consumers buy?

The US fan base is fading, thanks to politics (the best not fighting the best)  and outside forces (can you say MMA?).

Will boxing in the US be similar to WWE?  WE may be closer than you think!

We have a Twitter  war of words between Golden Boy Promotions’ promoter Oscar De La Hoya and JC Chavez, Jr.

Oscar says Chavez Jr has been lying on Twitter and  should sign the contract that was sent to his manager.

Chavez Jr retorts by saying Saul “Canelo” Alvarez wants five times (5Xs) the salary he’s been offered ($25 million for Alvarez, to $5 million for Junior).

See a set of tweet below:

JC Chavez Jr translation:

YOU NEED TO RESPECT MORE THE FIGHTERS. I NEVER LIKED TO HEAR YOUR REALITY. ALL NEED EACH OTHER CHAMP.
