I'm wearing the shirt I got last Xmas. I wore it Vs. Bama and the Ducks, so hoping the luck holds.
Was a nickname just born? The Holy Father Dontre? The Bishop of Rome? Pontifex Maximus? All hail Pope Dontre the First.
Mayweather won the fight. I wished Manny won, but he just didn't. However the bigger story is how this event epitomizes how boxing has been machinegunning itself in the foot for the past few decades. The style is only half of the story, yeah, the fight was boring, and Mayweather is the quintessential counter striker, but that's not really boxing's fault, knockouts are few and far between when you pit two pretty equally matched 150 pounders against each other. The problem comes when you demand that the consumer spend $100 to watch said boring fight, especially after hyping it like they did. Boxing can't rely on purists alone, boxing needs to attract a large percentage of "casual sports fans" like they did way back when. Teddy Atlas made a good point when he said that it looked like a "hedge fund convention" when referring to the audience in the MGM Grand. No everyman sports fan could have dreamed of getting into that fight. This all combines to make boxing feel extremely inaccessible. And then, when you decide you are intrigued enough by the constant promoting to spend $100 dollars, you get to see the fight as it really is with two men in their upper thirties with a limited chance of a knockout bounce around a ring. I'm not faulting Mayweather for his style, 48-0 means it works, but it turns off the average sports fan.
Word on the street is that he is considering going to play for the L.A. KISS, right in time for the Arena League playoffs.
