With the ascent of mixed martial arts into the mainstream sports world, came the inevitable friction with boxing. Even though both sides will throw the occasional verbal jab at the other, renowned boxing promoter Lou DiBella told Newsday he feels boxing has to fight its own battles.

lou dibella and that boxing mark brian kenny got owned by joe rogan on espn it was hilarious. at the end kenny's like "while ufc may be more exciting, because boxing only involves punching it's definitely more aesthetically pleasing to the eye" and then rogan jumped in "what the hell are you talkin about?!! jiu-jitsu is way more aesthetically pleasing if you actually understand what's going on!!" lol

yeah, boxing is so aesthetically pleasing the last two hbo main events (dlh vs pbf, taylor vs spinks) have been greeted with nothing but boos. talk about grasping on to straws.
