  • Boxing Gross Decline

    The amount of money in sponsorships have taken over thus in Boxing and the amount of quality fighters is in decline in UFC there is the likes of McGregor arising and the only major up and coming fighter in boxing worth a mention is Heavyweight Anthony Joshua. Bang bang bang

  • Boxing is dying out.

    MMA is coming up with new and better people, while boxing is dying out. There hasn't been big name boxers in a while. MMA is doing really well and has surpassed the amount of views that boxing gets. More people like MMA because of the more risk it has and the more excitement.

  • "Take Over" must be defined first, but yes MMA will - or has already done so

    By "Take Over" I assume you mean gross income for the sports including endorsement contracts, vendors that create products for the sports (I.E. Tap out for MMA etc). MMA (UFC etc) is all over the place on shirts, hats, multiple TV shows / venues while boxing has declined to a point where they promote a couple major events a year.

  • Yes, it more likely will than not

    MMA is, without a doubt, one of the fastest growing sport in the world. Events are more frequent to that of boxings. Boxing has reached it's pinnacle over the years and there has been a struggle to find dominant names like Ali and Tyson - There are only a few greats left and of course you need big names to set up big events. MMA is making a daily impact and more and more fighters are making big names for themselves as there is much more competition.

  • Boxing is already dying.

    MMA is much better. Its more entertaining, and in a fight an MMA fighter would cream a boxer. Why would you watch minor league fighting? Many core fans have already switched over to MMA from boxing. More people watch UFC than boxing, and it is the fastest growing sport in the world. I have many friends into UFC. None like boxing.

  • MMA Already Took Over Boxing

    MMA has already taken boxing's spot and it looks like they will continue to hold it. MMA is much more entertaining and many people seems to be leaning towards it over the competition these days. Boxing just isn't as appealing as it once was and MMA is thriving right now.

  • MMA will never take over boxing

    I believe mma will never take over boxing because it has too many dull moments. When they stand up and fight, it's great but when the fights tooken to the ground it's boring as hell. In boxing (with the exception of one or two bouts) the action is constantly there and so many more strikes are landed.

  • No, MMA will not take over boxing

    MMA, although arguably comparable to boxing is quite different. Mixed martial arts is a combination of martial arts (some which include boxing), hence the term mixed martial arts. Boxing is not a sport inclusive of martial arts. Boxing is an industry and sport that still has a lot of support. It is not likely that people who are die hard supporters of boxing are going to forsake it for MMA.

  • No, it won't

    There are people that prefer boxing and there are people that prefer MMA. There will always be people that prefer one or the other and, once the start up hype for MMA is over, they will equalize again. There are enough fans for both styles of fighting to keep both organizations up and running.

  • No, boxing is still number one

    As of right now Boxing is still #1 when it comes to big money bouts, MMA is still a growing industry and hasn't gotten the appeal of the masses. Many people consider it very barbaric and uncivilized. Where as boxing is considered a gentleman's sport. Another thing to consider is that a lot of people aren't interested or have the time to learn all the technicalities and nuances that is MMA, where as boxing has become a bit of tradition in a lot of countries and is part of the Olympics. So no Boxing is here to stay and MMA shouldn't even be compared to it, they are too completely different.
