Op/Ed

Considered the Sweet Science Boxing has always been an American draw.  From the early days of the sport in North America when men wore thongs and protective gloves to protect their hands.  Over the past 50 years we have seen paydays grow from $5 million payout for the infamous 1974, “Rumble in the Jungle,” Muhammad Ali vs. George Forman fought in Zaire.  To $180 million paid to the great Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in 2015.  The fight was billed “The Fight of the Century” which didn’t stick and later the
Battle for Greatness,” which also didn’t stick.
