Is there not enough room for Boxing and the UFC?
I have been a long time boxing fan and I am becoming an avid UFC fan. Personally I love both boxing and the UFC, I'm tired of the media comparing the two sports. It's true they are both combat sports but they are vastly different.
I would argue that the UFC exposure is good for boxing and it's fans. The popularity of the UFC will make boxing promoters give fans more of the fights they want and they'll have to make more fights available on cable instead of pay per view. The mainstream coverage of UFC has also increased the mainstream coverage for boxing. In the end the growth of either sport is good for both.
What do you think?
I agree. There is definitely room for both. The UFC is a budding sport and they do feed off of each other. Boxing is in a down period and it hasn't been the first time in boxing's long and rich history and it won't be the last . The UFC is surging in order for boxing to grab the attention of the casual fan the heavyweight division must regain it's prominence, but that depends on the influx of talent and charisma into the division. Unfortunately that fighter or fighters are not currently competing in the heavyweight division. Hopefully that fighter or fighters won't be to far off in the future.
