I just got done watching Ray Mercer's fight with Bert Cooper from back in 1990. Now, I know this wasn't a masterpiece when it comes to the sweet science, but here's why I started the thread. The fight was televised on CBS and it got me to thinking about the decline and fall of boxing on network TV. It made me long for the days of watching ABC, NBC and CBS for the sometimes great fights they provided (I remember watching Virgil Hill fight on ABC when I was growing up. Not the best choice, I know, but it's who I'm old enough to remember). My question to you guys is this. Why do you think networks went away from broadcasting boxing and what, if anything, might bring networks back to boxing? If this thread subject was talked about recently, I'm sorry. It just came to my mind while I was watching it was all.
