Bad Left Hook Podcast #45 (March 25, 2016): Boxing's ongoing post-MayPac hangover

New, comments

Today's episode is A Very Special One, as I take some time to give my thoughts on what's plagued boxing over the last 11 months, as interest in the sport has indeed noticeably waned.

HEY! It's Friday, and it's podcast day. There's a bit of news, and obviously some fights out there this weekend, but since we covered the previews with myself and Paul Johnson on Wednesday's show, today's not about that. And since there's not a ton of news, I had to think of something to make today about.

I have chosen what I believe is still the big story in boxing: Mayweather-Pacquiao. Specifically, why boxing continues to struggle so much in the wake of last May's mega-epic-ultra-fight (which I actually mean sincerely, it was a ginormous event).

Where did those people go? Why aren't they around now? Why is the sport struggling to find its groove, even now, 11 months after the fight? The answers may be obvious to some, but those answers may be the easy way out. Still, it's not all doom and gloom.

Anyway, listen if that sounds interesting to you. This is obviously just my take, and if you disagree, I'd love to hear what you all think, too, because I think this is an interesting topic and worth a good discussion, even if you think I am just dead ass wrong.

So enjoy the show, and thanks for listening!

(Also, I mentioned this in a comment the other day, but if anyone's ever interested in the songs I use for intro/outro, I keep a Spotify playlist for that.)
