I would never have become a fan of them and boxing if they had not shown these boxers on mainstream.

This is why boxing is now a minority sport.
It is interesting to think of it. In a way boxing has very much reverted and off the basic mainstream. Off of "old media" and tv. New technology/platforms gradually make it that you have to seek it out again. Even a broader platform like Amazon and the "new deal" barely lifted a finger to advertise the first fight card...it was on youtube and had the production of a grade school play. Hardly bringing in new fans like that.
