Gone are the days of legitimate boxing matches and genuine fighters. Any sports fans remember Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Jack Dempsey and Rocky Marciano?
It’s obvious that today’s so-called championship fights are jokes. Consider the waltz of Mayweather and Pacquiao two years ago. The latest example is scheduled for August 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, appropriately the most honest city in America. Estimates are that Mayweather will take home more than $100 million.
Ireland’s former welfare recipient McGregor will have to accept a measly $75 million. That’s a nice amount for a mixed martial artist who has never been in a traditional boxing ring before.
It’ll cost stay-at-home fans $100 to see pay per view TV of the dancing couple, while ringside arena seats go for up to $10 thousand. Those in way-way-back cheap seats of the huge arena will pay a bargain $500. If you intend to spend money on this farce, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn I’ll sell you real cheap.
