Boxing's 2017 will end with the traditional year-end world title fights that will take place in Japan, with five world title fights filling two boxing cards on December 30 and 31. The two main attractions are the WBO super flyweight title and WBA/IBF junior flyweight title unification fights.
In part 2 of Fightful's 2017 review, we look at the various television numbers in the United States and determine if the sport has improved viewership with signs pointing to yes except for one long-established boxing network, whose declining viewership is cause for concern. Despite that, several other networks saw vast improvements with their television ratings when broadcasting boxing, pointing to a positive step as we heads towards 2018. All in this and more is covered in this week's edition of the Fightful Boxing Newsletter.
