Will Big Time Boxing Ever Come Back to Boardwalk Hall?
Atlantic City has always been thought of as a fight town and a boxing town, but its been awhile since Boardwalk Hall opened its doors to fight fans for a major fight.
The biggest of names entered the Hall -- names like Mike Tyson, Evander Holified, Lennox Lewis, George Foreman, Bernard Hopkins, Arturo Gatti, Micky Ward, Wladimir Klitschko and others.
But the big names have vacated to bigger towns. New York, Vegas, Brooklyn, and even Dallas have overtaken Atlantic City role in hosting big fights.
Will they ever come back?
Sure, many Mixed Martial Arts events from promotions like the CFFC, PFL and even the UFC are coming to the boardwalk, but the sweet science seems to be on the outside and not even looking in.
Whose fault is it, the promoters, the casinos, the city?
The Sports Bash on 97.3 ESPN FM discussed if boxing will ever return with New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame writer Dave Weinberg from The Press of Atlantic City.
