And the winner by knockout........

I grew up watching boxing. Always enjoyed it to a certain extent, but after watching the Pacquiao vs. Cotto fight in the later rounds reminds me of one of the biggest reasons that boxing is way behind the eight ball to MMA.

Don't get me wrong the first 8 rounds were very enjoyable and entertaining to watch, but as it always seems to be the last 4 rounds was nothing but tangling together or running around the ring the entire time. C'mon MAN!! This is not what the fans want to see! At that point I would of rather seen the fight called than waist my night watching Miguel Cotto run around the ring the latter rounds, and it even seemed like Manny Pacquiao was thinking the same thing.

In a sport that is losing fans to MMA, they have to remember the last thing they see in a fight is the thing that they will remember the most. You could hear the displeasure in the crowd booing at Cotto for avoiding Pacquiao, and I think that's what a lot of the fans are going to take home with them.

In few MMA fights that I've watched compared to Boxing, it seems like every second of the fight is crucial to the outcome of the fight. I believe one of the reasons this might be so is because MMA fights are a lot shorter and their is a sense of urgency. So on that same token i think one of the ways to make boxing better is to either make the rounds shorter, or have less rounds. Make them go out there and earn it for every second worth of the fight!

Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to be jacked up to see the Mayweather vs.
Pacquiao that is for sure to come. I just think for the durability of the sport they need to look at making some major changes. But until then I will have to take it as it is and hope that boxing doesn't die off all together

-Thanks for Reading, Michael
