Is Boxing Dead? (Boxing is Immortal)

By Wilmar Patino (Boxing’s Finest): Welcome Back Boxing fans to another article for the hardcore and casual fans of this great sport. Since last weekend’s big fight I’ve been hearing a lot of hoopla between Boxing fans especially from the casuals saying that Boxing is Dead. This has been a strong statement that is made every now and then after a big disappointment in Boxing.

I remember people saying the same thing after being let down in the Oscar De La Hoya vs Felix Trinidad fight. People were expecting fireworks, but the fight lacked in excitement. In that time I remember that fight being called the fight of the century leading up to the bout in September of 1999. Yet Boxing kept going, and I remember people saying they would never watch Boxing again recently when Timothy Bradley was awarded the decision over Manny Pacquiao in their first bout, but guess what? Everyone tuned in last weekend to watch Mayweather vs. Pacquiao and Boxing continues to soar in popularity and viewership. So this article is aimed a little more towards the casual fan, as I know hardcore fans would never leave the sport.

We have witnessed a couple of “super fights” throughout the years and some had the privileged to have seen many throughout the decades. The majority of super fights have not lived up to the hype built up leading into the fight, but that’s because these are usually very high skilled chess matches happening and many casuals do not completely understand it. It’s okay, and if you are a hardcore fan and felt letdown from last weekend after shelling out $100 in a fight you were expecting more action and exchanges from I’m here to remind you that Boxing is Immortal.

We have many up and coming fighters with the potential to become superstars and some day they can have their super fight down the line for us to get excited about. There will be blood baths and knockouts eventually, but it is not as common when the highest level of fighters meet. Still, it does happen and there are some match-ups that can always quench our thirst for blood and also have us shocked when the unexpected happens. As seen in the video above there are a lot of Boxers worth getting excited for.

From knockout artists Gennady Golovkin, Sergey Kovalev, and Keith Thurman to Mexican star Saul Canelo Alvarez. You have your master technicians for boxing purists who are fans of the sweet science such as Guillermo Rigondeaux, Vasyl Lomachenko, and Terence Crawford. Even young up and coming Olympic standout Errol Spence Jr or American Heavy weight Deontay Wilder. There are a lot of styles and personalities to choose from and enjoy. I can’t list them all, but I can assure you there is a lot to look forward to in the coming years. Some already established stars in their own right like Timothy Bradley or British star Kell Brook are some people we can see very soon unravel their careers. So no matter what part of the world you’re from and what weight class you enjoy most, there is plenty to be excited for. With that being said I ask both hardcore and casual fans do you believe Boxing is dead? Who do you think is the future of Boxing? I for one say that Boxing is Immortal because Boxing will NEVER DIE!
