Well I assume mostly we're talking about title fights here, and those are certainly dressy, at least in the front rows; the presenters need to be at least as dressy, so they step up their sartorial game.

I think title fights are the "opera" of sports: people go for the fight, yes, but they also go to see and be seen. It's an *event*, not just a sporting match.

I suppose venue plays a role as well, as most title fights are held in Vegas or Atlantic City or the like, where folks are inclined to "make the scene" anyway.

Now, local fights in neighborhood gyms are another thing all together. We have an old 'hood boxing gym not to far from where I live in Atlanta, where the locals go to watch scrappy locals box, and it's decidedly a casual, after work crowd (matches are usually in the early evening).
