Closed Circuit TV Boxing.. The Golden Era...

Not only is Mayweather vs. Cotto on PPV this weekend, the bout is being shown on the big screen at theaters around town.  It takes me back to the pre-cable days (remember how long it took to even get Cable in Sacramento?) when we’d pay to see Closed Circuit boxing at the Memorial Auditorium.  Sometimes the picture was so bad, you couldn’t distinguish one boxer from another.  When you can’t tell Pipino Cuevas from Thomas Hearns, you have a challenging video feed.  Yeah, Pay Per View is great at home, but there’s something about watching championship boxing with 5,000 other screaming fans.  By the way, the Hearns-Cuevas fight was a classic. photo
