A heavyweight championship fight (Klitschko vs. Gomez on March 21st) and there’s not a single word of coverage in the Sports section of the Globe. Could this be yet another symptom of a newspaper in financial trouble? Or is the Globe still punishing us for the sins of former columnist Ron Borges? Granted, the above fight was not exactly Ali-Frazier, but it still was a WBC heavyweight championship bout. Come on, folks, bring back your weekly coverage of this major professional sport. Although this is one of boxing’s cyclical slow periods, there are still lots of avid fans out there who would welcome the Globe’s return to coverage of the “sweet science.”
