Question:

Fighting in Las Vegas is a given. On the eve of the Mayweather vs De La Hoya professional boxing event, it is inevitable to ask a sports question. For years Las Vegas has been the Mecca for Professional Boxing matches. The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is now trying to make their mark on the sports entertainment dollar in Las Vegas. This week’s Reader Poll asks, which sport would you rather attend in Las Vegas, a boxing match or an ultimate fighting match?  What is your opinion?  Why or Why not?

Reader Poll Replies:

I would prefer to see a good old fashion boxing match.   Don B. CA

*  The UFC seems to be more violent and it leaves me very cold.  Not that boxing is a non violent sport but I dont want to see a Roman gladiator event.   Wanita F.  FL

Ultimate fighting match. Why? All's fair in love and war. Too many rules are for sissys - ultimate fighting is the Only way to go.  Monica Cheyenne, WY

*   I would prefer attending a Boxing Match. When I think of world class boxing events....Las Vegas goes hand in hand. I couldn't associate any other venue with world class boxing that gives me the certainty that I am going so see a match run in a first class manner and flair that Las Vegas has come to be recognized for. Las Vegas has the history of experience for running first class boxing events. I don't think I'd have the confidence of attending high ranking boxing events anywhere else!  Scott Bradley  Ontario  Canada

Boxing is good.  Ms. Lee Forbes  Marietta GA

I would rather attend an ultimate fighting match. Why? because no Don King and no WWF WWE or whatever atmosphere.  Rob Dotson  Justice Illinois

There's nothing like a heavyweight title fight in Las Vegas. Although mixed martial arts is exciting and fast paced it can't compare with the whole vibe of a major fight on the strip. You can feel the electricity in the air and the whole strip seems just a little brighter and more alive during a big boxing weekend. Whether you are a hardcore boxing fan or not, you should treat yourself to the sights and sounds of a big fight in Las Vegas!  David   Sugarcreek, OH

I would rather watch a UFC .Quite often a boxing exstraveganza can not live up to its expectations.Also,hte "in" people are the only ones seem to be able to afford the outlandish prices .And many of the fans are there not for the matches,but for the publicity/exposure.UFC crowds are usually hungrier for action and help the contestants raise their game level.So for excitement,action and dollar value,I would deffinately go to the UFC.   Roy Collins  Nanaimo,BC  Canada

I would rather see a boxing match. Las Vegas has long been known for it's boxing matches.I am not real comfortable with this ultimate fighting matches and I really don't think I would be the least bit interested in seeing one. Give me a classy boxing match for a class Las Vegas Vegas.  carlene trivett  bluff city,tn

With all of its promotion, a high-end boxing match ticket gives you a huge amount of buildup, and the chance of a 90-second main event. I don't think you get shorted on Ultimate Fighting. However, anytime there is a big-draw event, I try to stay out of town. I'm filler, I wait for mid-week room deals and quiet weekends. There are enough opportunities without fighting strip-filling crowds to spend my money.  Don Bartley  Portland, OR
