Donald Trump & Boxing
We tried not to enter the political debate. 1 – Because we are a boxing channel. And 2 – We aren’t actually based in the USA apart from one of our writers.
Given the current nature of boxing in the State of New York. Trump could potentially have a positive impact on boxing.
Here are some facts about Trump & Boxing:
- Donald Trump has been a long time boxing fan. He has attended many many title fights, from Mike Tyson, to recent GGG fights. His love for the sport can’t be denied.
- Trump was loyal to his friend Mike Tyson, when Tyson was in trouble for criminal charges.
- Trump has owned casino’s in Atlantic City & he has been heavily involved in the boxing business side of things. Some achievements have been lowering ticket sales so fans could get ringside tickets cheaper at Tyson vs Spinks.
- Trump still earns revenue from ESPN airing classic bouts, which Trump has rights to.
What does this mean? Well not to much. But given the current state of boxing in New York State, which is pretty much destroyed by the very expensive insurance cover which is mandated, Trump just may be able to help boxing out in the state. It’s a long shot. But being a boxing fan, it would have to be much more likely then a non boxing fan having power.
Hopefully boxing in New York State can recover. The hugely successful & popular promoter Lou Dibella has already cancelled club level fights, because after extremely expensive insurance, the shows will run at a loss.
NOTE : THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL POST. BUT HE IS A BOXING FAN. SO IT COULDN’T HELP WITH THE SITUATION IN NEW YORK STATE RIGHT? PROVIDE YOUR FEEDBACK.
