TIME FOR THE SPORT OF PRIZEFIGHTING TO BOUNCE BACK!
Prizefighting has been one of the most coveted and popular sports worldwide. Not surprisingly, boxers, or prizefighters, gain popularity worldwide if you like to call them that. Currently, this sport is experiencing a sort of downfall for various reasons, but this was never the case in the past. As late as the early 2000s, prizefighting was hugely popular in many countries. People still recall the glory days of prizefighting when they hear names like Jack Dempsy and Rocky Marciano. The love of sports is there, but the rapid decline is causing worries for those who love it most. To this day, prizefighting is watched by billions regardless of whether their fighter is partaking in the match or not. The fight game is popular as it was, but the quality of bouts is perhaps not the same. We had champions like Sugar Ray Robinson, Marciano and Ali gracing the ring with their style, skill and strength.
Whether it was one of the most heroic comebacks by Ali against Foreman or Tyson’s rapid fire victory against not so popular Larry Holmes, Prizefighting is a sport like no other. Marciano was a maestro at work, and he hung the gloves without losing a fight. The man suffered horrendous injuries during his career and was at one time declared medically unfit to fight. He was short and had small fists deemed too small by boxing experts, but he kept proving everyone wrong. He did so several times during his career. His slit nose is considered to be the most brutal injury suffered by a prizefighter during a match. Despite that, he continued to perform and win title after title during his career.
This sport was fortunate to have seen so many great fighters competing for the world title back in the day. The likes of Lenox Lewis, who defeated “Iron Mike” for the world heavyweight title, came several decades later, but it is one of the most interesting matches of all time. Tyson was aging, and losing patience when he was inside the ring. Touted as the greatest champion after Marciano and Muhammad Ali, he was at one time set to win the title, but things went against him. His involvement in controversies outside the ring took a toll on him, and it showed. His downfall as the champion followed soon after he lost to Lewis. These are just some of the events that took place a few years past. The sport is in decline, and those passionate about it can certainly feel it.
