boxing has been a national mainstay for, what 100 years maybe? MMA is still relatively new and exciting. The various MMA organizations obviously don't have the depth of boxing, so I can easily see 3-4 boxing cards on tv per week during the spring and summer but it truly is an individual sport. I like several fighters but it doesn't translate into liking the ranking organization. Whereas I can have favorites in MMA with UFC, and then I can look to UFC for other good fighters. Boxing is too selfish for that.
I think UFC tries to pick good matchups and only rarely do you see fighters avoid each other. Boxing is totally different, to it's detriment.
