In recent months, there has been reports of declining viewership from different websites for boxing articles especially if the topic is not about Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.

For avid boxing fans and industry critics, the declining readership trends are quite alarming. They predict the sport is headed for extinction if no changes are made to salvage whatever is left of the once-popular ancient sport.

And unless some changes are made now, its popularity will continue to decline as promoters are more concerned about financial survival than anything else.

In the last two years, boxing stories have revolved around the twice-scuttled Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight. For a writer who wish to generate more reads for his articles, he only has to write anything about these two guys and he gets the viewer’s attention.

The long-awaited Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight is seen by many as a “shot in the arm” for this “dying sport” and there are quite a number of reasons why the fight needs to happen.

First and foremost is the need for a super fight that would generate widespread publicity for the sport of boxing. Quite a number of boxing fans say boxing popularity will dive to its lowest level if the fight does not happen.
