How do you see the global boxing landscape?

In my opinion, one conclusion stands out from the rest; namely; that the entire global boxing landscape has become just that—a global boxing landscape where a Ghanaian can live in Stockholm and fight in Europe, or a Venezuelan can live in Tokyo and fight everywhere but in the U.S. An Armenian can become a German or Australian citizen and live in France and thereby get a triple dose of adulation. Vic Darchinyan is given triple homeboy love in Glendale, CA; Australia; and in Armenia. The late Edwin Valero was worshiped in Tokyo and Venezuela—and then, for his macho style, in Mexico. An Armenian born Russian citizen can live in France and fight throughout Europe. A Cuban can defect to South America, move to Europe and fight out of Germany or Ireland. Born in Uzbekistan and Russian by nationality, a fighter can live and fight out of Munich these days, and in the process, he just might become tri-lingual. How about a Tunisian who resides in Germany but fights in Australia?

Heck, a fighter can be born in Belarus, immigrate to Israel, learn to box in Haifa under a Russian coach, train out of an Arab gym, and then move to Brooklyn, New York where he studies to become a rabbi while at the same time becoming a WBA Super Welterweight Champion.

That’s why I call it Planet Boxing.
