We have come to an interesting time in sports. We are witnessing possibly the final breath of boxing. The Klitschko brothers killed off the heavyweight division by holding the belts, then never fighting each other for an undisputed championship. Manny vs. Money happened past both of their primes when such a fight is exactly what the sport needed. An absolute farce of a decision gave us Jeff Horn, Boxing Champion.
Now, Floyd Mayweather is fighting Conor McGregor because enough of us are stupid enough to pay the insane $99 pay-per-view price.
Yes, the sport has done itself no favors by getting itself to this point. Not having enough big names, all of the lousy decisions, all of the terrible decisions. Believe me, I get it if you’re looking at this fight and wondering if it will be worth all of the hype. It will not be. While all of the press conferences leading up to this fight will get people talking about boxing for a little bit, this fight will not help the sport. More importantly, if Conor McGregor actually wins this match, boxing will be dead.
Here’s our thoughts from the 7-11-2017 show.
