Being boxing is getting outdone by mma but they are still doing their best I saw a commercial 5x during the TUF 5 episode yesterday for Mayweather De LA Hoya and i'm curious does anyone here watch boxing and is anyone planning on watching this fight and who do you think will win??

When I had HBO yes I watched boxing but not as religiously as I watch MMA now. I think a lot of fight fans watch boxing, pro wrestling, and MMA its just becoming gay to admit that you watch anything else other than MMA which is just stupid. But back on topic as I said when I had HBO yeah I watched boxing take the maywhether/de la hoya fight it will replay on HBO so I would normally watch it there. Would I pay PPV prices to see one maybe two fight f**k no, that is just stupid and not to start any shit but boxing is doing just fine world wide, the numbers for this fight will probably blow away and UFC or PRIDE PPV numbers simply because boxing has and will be around for a long time. Just something we fans need to relaize and just accept. Just like pro wrestling isn't going anywhere.

Just my opinion.

i mite watch it on you tube after a week...pay for it no way....mma is where its at now....but definately agree with the posts above.....just because the average joe dosnt watch boxing as much dosnt mean their not making plenty of money off it.......all the bars will still show the fights.....not to mention the cost of actually goin to the venue.....and also its sad to say that pro wrestling wont just die

i wouldn't miss it for anything. I dig both sports and this should be a good one. I'd like to see Oscar kick his @ss but realitically I don't think he's got a chance. Floyd the loudmouth by a wide margin decision.

I think MMA fans should not get the PPV. Watch it it on the net or on HBO, but dont pay for it. I think Mayweather said all that about MMA to tap into the fans. He kind of like started a fight with us, talking about our sport. Which makes us want to tune in and cheer on De La Hoya. No matter who we pay to see, it still helps him. I wont be ordering it on PPV. Im not falling for that.

I wouldn't pay to watch it. I may find it on the internet the next day or something. Boxing is cool and all, but its lost my interest after years of mismanagement.

Honestly, I could give a **** less about boxing. I used to love boxing when I was a kid (back in the 80's when Mikey was on a tear). But it just has no appeal to me these days.
