Personally, I'm just not into sport-focused media. The closest I've come is watching sport-related comedies (The Replacements, Necessary Roughness, Major League, etc.) on TV. But, I don't see myself getting into a TV show about a boxer. Heck, I've yet to see The Fighter or any other dramatic boxing movie that I can recall.

In Lights Out, the show is much less about boxing, and much more about the characters and their personalities. Like with any show, there is a backdrop (football for Friday Night Lights (another amazing "sports" show), the office for The Office, a school for Saved By the Bell)... the heart of the show isn't in the backdrop, it's in the lives of the characters that populate the backdrop.
