    Julio Cesar Chavez supposedly had 136,274 fans show up in a fight in Mexico against a guy named Haugen.

    Largest indoor gate was 63,000 for Ali VS Spinks 2

    Largest outdoor was Chavez VS Haugen at something like 134,000 plus

    I can't imagine 134,000... from half a mile away I'm sure it was like watching ants doing the salsa

    eh, I wouldn't say that, they pack in just over 110,000 every year to watch Michigan and Ohio St. on the ole gridirion, so the possibility IS there should Americans decide it's time to start loving boxing again...

    yeah man, I went to one a few years ago... it's deafening... I went to the University of Georgia and our capacity was almost 93,000... the sound in that stadium was also unbelievable... it's really amazing when that many people get together to rock it out

    I think you'll find old timers like Jack Johnson drew some pretty mega crowds, can't remember figures but way way over 60 thousand.
    Did any of you guys see the documentary that came out a year or so ago Unforgiveable Blackness ?

    When Johnson fought Tommy Burns in australia the crowd looked massive.
