Well something has to be holding galaxies together and creating their massive magnetic fields and produce the large gravitational forces needed to hold it together. A black hole as we think of them make sense visually and mathematically...
Ultimately, what is seen is not the black hole itself, but observations that are consistent only if there is a black hole present near Sgr A*. The observed radio and infrared energy emanates from gas and dust heated to millions of degrees while falling into the black hole.
