In fairness to boxing, how much of that has to do with the US


not having as many great American fighters dominate the sport? I was watching Boxing After Dark a few weekends ago and they were talking about the lack of marquee American fighters in the sport. One of the analyst (I think it was Max) said the heavyweight division drives the ratings in the US. Whereas Roy Jones Jr thought it could be expanded to the 2 main divisions; heavyweight and middleweight. There may be technically sound fighters in those divisions, but they seem to lack the showmanship and the star power (i.e. Sugar Ray Leonard) and I think that is really what influences people to buy the PPV.
