I'll admit to knowing dick about boxing, but the sport is dying. Young talent is going into other things like MMA.

Plus doesn't Klitschko have a massive height/reach advantage on like everybody?

Young athletes are choosing sports that actually have players unions, and where they don't have to get punched in the face for a living. I'm sure the popularity of MMA isn't helping either.

Hopkins may not be atop the LHW division much longer. The real life version of Clubber Lang is ready for a shot at the Executioner and his IBF title.

I dont agree with the under 30 comment, but people over 30 have money.

I have noticed that MMA has displaced boxing among the young at least partially.

MMA is more popular among the younger crowd.
Rigging of the sport turns people off.
Head injuries and mental condition of retired boxers scare parents.
Not exciting to watch, so the kiddies don't get into it.
