    Nothing like seeing a live fight close up, so its good to see the smaller shows doing well again. You can feel the energy more with the friends and family of a lot of the fighters watching. There is life in boxing after the big stars retire, as the true fans of the game come out and support the sport at any level.

  2. I am very intrigued with the promotion of pugilism in Beantown given its history. Boston T party. John L Sullivan Jim ..Gentelman …Crispus Attucks…..The Constitution..Brockton..The Rock..I put out a middleweight title fight between two Irishman in Andrre Ward..vs Martin Murray for the middleweight title on St Patricks Day when Andre was just gaining a foothold and Bad Martin Murray was a was a major player way back when. I recall another Headliner that was supposed to commence that doesnt exactly come to mind, and the supporting undercard was Katie Taylor tbe.. Knowing those fans up there the venue that held 200000 was sold out in a matter of minutes..The brain surgeons then pulled the main event and the fans were left with a forced fed promotion that they wouldnt give lima beans for..I called attention big time on that one Jenna.the refund requests were over the top..I checked the attendance for the event that night and less than 2000 patrons showed up..Heres to Mr Dibella from Harvard..Bottoms up sir. Those fans up there are not stupid.. I wonder why that market hasnt been tapped too much..It shows where the mover shaker and investors priories lie to bring profitable competitive American Product to the Breakfast table,.. Murray from Great Britain was beating alot of big names too.
