I was in Belfast last night watching Frampton Cazares. Never been to this beautiful city but I was told immediately on arrival that it's "officially the best fight city in the world". Who am I to argue after all the Craic I had with the lovely ladies over a few pints of the black stuff! Oh and the atmosphere in the arena was electric.. Ireland, and Belfast in particular has a very strong boxing background and the people in this city love their fighters.
I was told that the amateur champs are treated like celebs and are well known around the city. Not too many cities can boast that! What's more is that there's a healthy and large supply of young guys n gals all eager to get in the ring and box. In Ireland football isn't played as exclusively by the majority as in other European countries. As a result, you have a lot of young kids fighting in the rings all across town.
Let's not forget about their bare knuckle heritage either!
So go on, which city would you say is the 'Best Fight city in the world?'
Las Vegas sure does the glitz glam and razzmatazz, no doubt you'll get a great show. But which city do the people appreciate their boxers and boxing the most? New Yorkers do it pretty well, several fight cities in the UK top like Manchester and Liverpool. The east end of London has a great fight history and looked after its fighters well.
Off course las vegas see here lot of big fight settled in vegas this year. But only for those who got money. The best thing about the sin city is rich boxing fans can have fun in many ways, they only need a big fight date to plan the trip.
Uk cities are good but New Yorkers are not great boxing fans, who got so much time.

I'm not one of the stanks -- I mean Yanks -- but it is a tie between California, Texas, Louisiana, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and New York. Also, it depends on what type of fighter, you are speaking of. Holla!
