I went by asking random boxing fans about the sport and to see if in fact, they knew about the sport they say they loved. The answers will surprise you.

As you can see most fans suffer from common flaw and that it the flaw of technology, our brains are getting information so fast, we can't remember that far back in the past, just flash memories of epic events. These were a few easy questions to people who are boxing fans and they couldn't even remember. My friend went to a fight in which he can't even remember the opponent his fighter was fighting in the main event. Just like that his brain made a decision to silence that memory to store new information coming in, which makes it harder to go back.
