My first article for Upper Reserved, which happened to be our first test post, came right after Manny Pacquiao’s loss to Manuel Marquez and talked about how UFC is doing everything that boxing should to win fans. It seems like the public has spoken.
At this year’s E3 Conference, the #1 video game publisher in the world, EA, showed their trailer for for “EA Sports UFC” for the PS4 and Xbox One. It looks like an awesome game. The interesting thing about EA’s slew of trailers is the absence of one for their popular boxing franchise, Fight Night. It seems that boxing’s popularity has slipped so much that fans don’t even fantasize about fighting as Pacquiao, Mayweather, Tyson or Ali anymore. They want to be Benson Henderson.
