Well, it seems the circus is TRULY coming to ‘Vegas, well ACTUALLY, one half already LIVES there. The official date is Aug. 26th and SHOULD be held at Circus, Circus (if it’s still there). This Connor McGregor – Floyd Mayweather shit is in full happening mode now. The boxing folks I talk to ( I may run a poll on WCB, later), are only talking about the LUNACY leading UP to this shit. This is like a guy paying big bucks for the foreplay, KNOWING the sex will SUCK. If somehow, the little Munchkin says ‘to HELL with the script’ and upsets Mr. Delusional, it’ll be the BEST thing that’s ever happened to the boxing world for TWO reasons. First, it would serve Mayweather right for breaking a record (Marciano’s 50 straight wins ) against a guy that’s NEVER had a boxing match, AT ALL. It would also be good for ‘Vegas for staging this money grab. Sadly, the record books don’t come with asterisk. At LEAST Ali –Anoki’s event was CALLED an EXHIBITION, which is EXACTLY what it WAS and all this really IS.
Secondly, it would be the talk of boxing for the next twenty years. People would forget Tyson –Douglas, Tyson’s ear nibbling of Evander Holyfield and all the outrageous decisions that have occurred in recent memory, it DAMN sure would be a bonanza for THIS scribe. I would NEVER stop talking / writing about this shit. Hell, if Mr. D. fails to STOP this guy it would be a travesty in MY eyes. I KNOW he’s only stopped TWO guys since 2006 (Ricky Hatton 12/8/2007 and Victor Ortiz 9/17-2011). Mayweather’s not a big puncher but THIS guy’s a fkn’ NOVICE. What if somehow McGregor DOES get BADLY hurt, could my favorite sport have a BIGGER Black eye? People would come outta’ the woodwork calling for a ban on boxing. Luckily for Conor, chances of Floyd hurting him are extremely slim. If this thing goes according to form, people will be talking about it for a WEEK, if THAT long. When Floyd made us wait five years to fight Paquio and it turned into the RICHEST FLOP in boxing history, you’d think the minions would have learned SOMETHING, but OBVIOUSLY, NOT. Last time he just put it in, this time he’s gonna’ move it around and his fans will just lie there and take it, like a Sunset Strip hooker.
Floyd should charge for his sparring and count THEM as wins too. I’m SURE some people would pay for THAT. Some people would pay to see the guy masturbate. Floyd just had breakfast and is taking his ABC (after breakfast crap), ooh, I wanna’ watch, how much is he charging? Can I wipe? I think if he charged people just to LOOK at him, walking down the street, they’d make it rain. Today, I read Floyd saying, “I’m not taking Conor lightly. He said it without laughing, too. I also noticed the writers are not mentioning that this will count on Floyd’s record as his 50th straight win. Are they THAT embarrassed to say it? They also listed McGregor’s record, give me a freakin’ break, WHAT in the lord’s ass does his MMA record have to do with THIS shit?
It’s a good thing we have Canelo-GGG, Garcia- Broner and a slew of REAL matches to sorta’ take our minds off THIS foolishness. But this rumor of LH champ Andre Ward possibly moving up to face HW champ Anthony Joshua doesn’t make sense to me. What a piece of Russian shit Sergey Kovalev turned out to be. He first says he practically “trains himself,” THEN says he needs “a new trainer”. I guess that last blistering right hand from Ward screwed him ALL the way up. Now, he’s entertaining the thought of having Ward’s trainer train HIM.
