The Hot Corner: Another nail in boxing's coffin

Boxing can't get out of its own way

If you're a reader of a certain age – say, 5 to 25 – the sweet science has known a sour relationship with prosperity your entire life. And sadly, early Sunday in Maine/Kentucky time, with a stationary target lumbering in its line of fire, boxing swung and missed laughably.

It was the equivalent of a wily veteran paired with a tomato can. No, not the Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn pairing itself. I'm talking about the sport's stacked deck as it played the hand that promised to put it back in our collective consciousness after decades of disinterest.
