I believe that the sport is just as popular as boxing, gets an audience just the same, the fights are more tougher than boxing and fights are hard to fix, so why boxers make more?
Boxing is a martial art so saying boxers make less than martial artists doesn't really make sense,
This is more of an opinion but I think boxing may have developed its initial popularity from the school yard type fights. If you can believe it there is a bit of a "gentleman's agreement" about it. It's almost like a duel. It's done in a prescribed fashion. Anyway over the years boxing became a very popular sport that caught the imagination of the public with boxers such as John L. Sullivan, Jim Corbett, Jack Dempsey, Jack Johnson and later you had Joe Lewis, Rocky Marciano and Muhammed Ali. And these are just the heavyweights. Sugar Ray Robinson was a great middle-weight fighter. They call boxing the "Sweet Science" and I think the fact that it is not an all out brawl (though there are fights like that obviously) but almost like a chess match at times is what intrigues the public. Boxing has a long colorful legacy in America and what the other martial arts sports need is time and the development of heros and public-interest stories....
