Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios Kick Off World Press Tour This Saturday in China

Griffith was one of the most exciting boxers of the 1960s and held world titles in the welterweight and middleweight divisions off and on from 1961 to 1968. He was often a model of cunning efficiency in the ring, preferring finesse to power. But on occasion he could summon great reserves of strength and unleash devastating torrents of punches on his opponents. No fighter felt his wrath more than Benny Kid Paret, a Cuban-born boxer who was Mr. Griffiths arch-opponent in the 147-pound welterweight class.

Thats something Tony Grygelko, who is the President/C.E.O. of the premier upper Midwest boxing promotional company http://floydmayweatherjrvscaneloalvarez.blogspot.com/ Seconds Out Promotions aims to change. Boxing on the highest levels of basic and premium cable channels has seen an uptick in ratings in the last 2 years. Showtime alone has a huge 50% gain since 2012. Both CBS and NBC late last year brought boxing back in the afternoon slot just as boxing fans in their 30s and up remember what it was like on ABC Wide World of Sports. The major promoters have reduced the average ticket prices to most of the major shows and the fans have responded. But on the amateur, local, and club level boxing is dying or dead in many areas across the country.
