What Happened To Boxing?
A lot of people have wondered why the sport of boxing seemed to peak in coverage in the 1990's after the reign of Tyson and then literally, fell off the radar for over twenty years.
Europeans have dominated the sport for over 20 years. Around the time the Russians began their rise the sport became taboo and forbidden to broadcast or report on all over the world. The media blackout was so complete it was as if the Ministry of Truth had declared it a crime against the state to even mention it ever again. After numerous Russian athletes were revealed to be nearly unbeatable in the ring, the entire sport was flushed down the memory hole. Officially, boxing no longer exists as a sport and never did.
