Boxing used to be one of the major sports in America, but it's suffered significantly as players turned to sports like football and basketball. You can see at least one symptom of this in the Olympics, where USA men's boxing failed to medal for the first time ever. Michael Wilbon, as a self-professed fan of the sport, isn't shocked by the shutout, but it's a definite disappointment in a sport that America used to dominate.


Were you shocked?

Fans in America tend to expect a lot out of our teams, but Wilbon says a dysfunctional system ensured that USA men's boxing failed to meet those expectations.
