    Boxing easily. Wilder/Ortiz, Groves/Eubank, Garcia/Lipinets, Spence/Peterson and Prograis/Indongo have already happened and even more great fights are confirmed:
    Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker March 31st
    Terence Crawford vs Jeff Horn
    Adrien Broner vs Jessie Vargas
    Vasyl Lomachenko vs Jorge Linares
    Oleksandr Usyk vs Murat Gassiev for all belts @ cruiserweight


    MMA is far behind tbh.

    I like boxing well enough, but I follow MMA and kickboxing more closely.

    It's weird to me that boxing fans regularly post this kind of stuff on MMA forums. I certainly don't go to boxing forums to talk shit about boxing because I prefer MMA.

    The winter olympics

    WME wishes they can screw over their athletes the way olympics can

    This isn't a dig. But tgey know what these fights are going to be months and months in advance. Where as ufc is pretty cloaked about it and do not promote their fighters aswell as they should. I think this is a turning point for mma as we know it on the old ppv formula.

    Boxing.

    Aside from the GGG vs Canelo judging that was such a turn off.

    MMA is watered down, spread thin, aging elites, champs not defending, merit less title shots and all but no where near as corrupt as boxing still is

    Point fighting on that list? Most of them are savage wars and kos. Mma is great. But don't shit on boxing because you dont understand the sweet science.
