Is Boxing on the decline or making a comeback? Legendary (former Boxer) Oscar De La Hoya says he has seen recently a "tremendous spike" in not only boxing tickets being sold, but also Pay-per-view sales.

Quoted recently by ESPN in regards to the popularity rise in boxing, De La Hoya stated: "We've had a really tremendous spike, like in ticket sales and pay-per-view buys and the ratings on HBO. It's actually incredible."

De La Hoya went on to add: "Our last fight, we broke records... both ratings on HBO and ticket sales."

There you have it folks, boxing is surging again and lets only hope the trend continues.
