Matchroom Boxing put on their first Sunday card since 2016 with mixed results.
It’s frustrating whenever the narrative of boxing swings too far over to the business side. I mean, I get it. Ultimately, in a sport that has no fixed schedule or planned season of fixtures, the announcement of dates, times, venues and purses will always strike a chord with the fans – albeit a somewhat tedious chord.
Viewing figures and fight purses, for example, are ways for us to quantify the pull or worth of a fighter in today’s modern – and quite frankly, confused – society, detracting from the nuts and bolts of our honest and authentic appreciation of a fight or fighter.
