Now on to today’s question:
There is often talk about how boxing can become more like other professional sports by providing certain benefits for the fighters. Pensions are often mentioned along with job training opportunities for the fighters who need them when they retire. Of course, the big question is, how would it all be funded?
A suggestion coming from insiders like Gerry Cooney and Greg Sirb is to tack a small amount on to pay-per-view events.
So, if it really would benefit the fighters, would you agree to pay a small amount to see them get some well-deserved benefits and training? How much would you be willing to pay per fight?
You pay the bills, fans, so what do you think?
Don’t forget to join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius channel 94 and XM channel 208. PLEASE NOTE CHANNEL CHANGE
