There are 2 WBC Champs.. Do you care?

Vitali Klitschko stopped Juan Carlos Gomez in the ninth round Saturday night, easily retaining his WBC heavyweight title. Did you even know?.. Do you care?

The 37-year-old champion twice put down the Germany-based Cuban defector, in the seventh and ninth rounds, before the referee Daniel Van de Wiele stopped the fight with 1 minute, 11 seconds remaining in the round.

How far as boxing fallen from the US scene? When Iron Mike was kicking ass and biting ears we all wanted to see what would happen next in any of his fights.. even the last few when his mystique was gone. With MMA etc.. boxing has not only taken a back seat but it isnt even in the car.

The other WBC Champs are the Japanese…again. They are now 2 for 2 in WBC baseball championships.  Again the US audience showed that this is not really something we care about and our players looked the same on the field.

Why does this tournament even have to be played during March when there is nothing making the event appealing. lets see… March Madness or International baseball?… Ill take hoops for $1000 Alex..

Lets try and have this in Feb or even better during the All Star break and maybe, just maybe we will give a hoot.. and for Boxing.. well even though Don King ruined the sport I sure do miss his shenanigans.
