Re: Is the WBSS a boon for boxing? Is it sustainable?
The first series was brilliant, only let down by late injuries. They created what the supersix and Haymon's PBC attempted to do, it wasn't more popular with casual fans because it had no American fighters/promoters on board therefore no TV or exposure. This time it has Matchroom (Eddie Hearn) on board with the US TV.
Who cares whether or not the "stars" enter? If people are not interested in seeing the best fight the best they're never going to be boxing fans. Floyd fans, Pac fans, Canelo, AJ etc have a casual market which is GOOD for boxing not bad.
What does it matter if the guys who only buy Canelo fights don't know who Andrade or Saunders or Murata are? Why are those fans going to "save" boxing? "Save" it from what exactly?
There's more than enough boxing to go around to suit all tastes.
