Has anyone attended a major live boxing event? Are they a good time or better just to watch from TV

    Bernard Hopkins "retirement" match is tomorrow and there's some dirt cheap tickets available. Are live boxing fights fun, or should I just stay home and catch it on HBO.

    Stay at home and watch VanZant vs Waterson, instead.

    Live boxing events in England are great, atmosphere is always good. I don't know about the US though.
    If I were you I would go to B Hops last fight 100%, that's a piece of history there. The event is probably going to be pretty lackluster though.

    Yes I have, I would go if I were you. Its like the difference from watching your favorite music group/artist on TV or seeing them live.

    You should go. It's fun. I don't know if anybody remembers that boxing show the Contender but I went to the reunion show at staples center with Peter manfredo vs Latin snake and it was fun. I even went with my mom. I was only 20 at the time but I bought the tickets and took her. We had fun .

    Depends how the fights are, but yes you should go. I been to many boxing events between 1998-2005. But it also depends what seats the tickets are, if they are good seats then yeah do it.

    I went to see Canelo v Mayweather it was a great time. If the tickets are cheap I think you should go, B-Hop is a legend you'll always be able to say you seen him live
