Was it easier back in the day?

Amidst yet another Mayweather vs Pacquiao saga, which will probably end with the 2 not fighting once again, i look back in Boxing and ask, was it easier to set up fights between rivals before?

Case in point, Benn and Eubank

I mean, could you even fathom something like this happening between Pacquiao and PBF? In the video, it's clear both fighters want nothing else but to just have a ruck, and unlike those HBO videos the hate here is clearly genuine, they aren't sitting on chairs the wrong way or anything

Ofcourse, other fights around the time didn't occur, for example, neither Benn or Eubank fought Jones or Toney but so many fighters in the particular weight class seemed fine with fighting each other. Rightly so IMO, it's crazy that in a SPORT called BOXING, the boxing can come second to money

Well what do you guys think, was it easier to establish fights between rivals than now?

PS, just lol at Eubank and 'parliamentary procedure'
