Most popular sports in the U.S (Part 3)


Boxing always draws the crowds, and the recent heavyweight match between Tyson Fury (UK) and Deontay Wilder (US) was no exception. One of the most famous boxers of all time has to be Muhammad Ali, who was born and raised in the US. Boxing has several titles to compete in, and most of them prove a huge hit. Plus, it is one of the biggest sports in the betting world as people rush to put a wager on the winner at online betting sites.

The whole atmosphere of boxing is a sight to behold. That’s what makes it one of the most-watched sports, especially when the big fights are announced. The invention of pay-per-view made this sport a spectacle, and whenever big names are publicized, they break records every time.

Car Racing

Americans love a trip to the speedway. The figures from infamous races such as the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500 just go to prove it. NASCAR is, of course, one of the most popular aspects of car racing in the US, and this sport brings people together from across the country. The thrill of this sport is something that people love, and there is something about the atmosphere and sounds that make people crazy about it.

Some of the most prominent American winners in racing include Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt. Plus, in the Formula One world, Mario Andretti and Phil Hill are the only Americans to win a championship.

There are lots of other popular sports in the US, and some of those crowd-pleasers include:

• Golf

• Tennis

International communities also love sport and many countries have their own leagues. Sports such as American football are also making their way to other continents, and cities, including London, where they have hosted sell-out NFL games for over a decade.
