Boxing will be okay. There were people who thought the sport wouldn't survive without guys like Ali and Frazier but it did. Then the same people said boxing was dead after Tyson left but Mayweather and Paq came along...
MMA might have overtaken it as the more popular combat sport but boxing isn't going away anytime soon. There will always be some new hyped up talent.
