Boxing: Manny Pacquiao and 'Sugar' Shane Mosley Fight today.

A little off topic but bridges into something I will discuss later on: Boxing.

Probably the biggest fight in years, Pacman vs Mosley is set to rake in millions for each fighter but it's not the fight people want to see. That is of course Pacquiao v Mayweather.

This match is going to be huge regardless, but is it relevant? An aging Mosley is likely no match for the Pacman and no one sees him losing, so probably not. The only relevant fight now appears to be Pacquiao v Mayweather and it just doesn't look like it will happen, and the problem is, this appears to be the only relevant fight in boxing at the moment.

I'm not saying boxing is in slow death spiral, but if the matching making stays in entrenched in money over competitiveness, there will be a gradually shift to MMA for combat sports fans.

Regardless, still looking forward to it. Go Pacman!!!

i agree completely, they have to decide whether it is about the money or the sport. they have to start setting up the fights people want to watch.

I heard about this. They should set it up for more viewership and not money.
