Boxing still has alot of fans, purists, and enthusists(sp?). It's just that people in US want more American champions. Many potential American fighters are seeing better money and opportunities in other sports like basketball, football, and baseball.I didn't watch the fight, but going in beforehand I knew there'd be some sort of uproar at the end.
Further proof of why the UFC has won me over, whereas boxing has become to me an old obsolete relic from yesteryear. Far less fights end up in the judges hands, more varied ways to end fights and decisions are more clear cut.
Comparing boxing to UFC for me is like comparing a 8 track player to an Ipad.
