With Million buy ppv fights like Mayweather Marquez and probably Pacquiao Cotto, Boxing, a sport that many have labeled as dead, was enjoying a period of increased popularity and exposure. Unfortunately, I realize now this brief period may be over soon and the sport may possibly even enter the darkest hour in it's history.
You see, the big names are what is keeping the sport afloat at the moment, and the biggest draws, Money May and Manny are hopefully set for what could be the most lucrative bout of all time. But what happens after Mayweather Pacquiao? Pacquiao will likely retire and the same may go for Mayweather. Without it's two biggest stars, who can carry the sport and fuel ppv buys like Oscar De La Hoya did. There are a great deal of talented youngsters but no one that is a real hot commodity
so while Mayweather Pacquiao might be the biggest fight ever, will it be the last big fight for years?
