How a lot would you pay to observe a circus on pay-per-view?
Whereas a boxing bout by definition, the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul battle that passed off Sunday evening was lacking a ref, judges, a ringleader and elephants balancing on a seaside ball. The boxing GOAT and the web celeb went eight rounds of clinching enjoyable for a cool 50 bucks on PPV. No winner was declared.
Whereas the bout was billed and bought as an exhibition battle, it embodied all the pieces that is questionable about boxing in 2021: an eight-round glorified (and seemingly scripted) bout between a boxing star previous his prime placing cash earlier than honor (to be honest, who can blame him?) and a YouTube star whose forays right into a boxing ring seem to be a little bit of a leap after making his bones on Vine.
Mayweather, in spite of everything, appeared to knock out Paul earlier within the bout, however held him as much as maintain the occasion going.
Pointed critiques of the battle sport and a dumb strategy to spend cash apart, mixing these substances made for a disastrous stick of boxing dynamite, blowing up in a foul method, which individuals ought to have seen coming, given the antics main as much as June 6; Mayweather’s nickname is “Cash,” in spite of everything, and Paul has made insane quantities of money by doing … nicely, no matter it’s that he does on the web.
With all this in thoughts, practically everybody who tuned in to final evening’s circus was left unhappy and unentertained, from battle followers on as much as boxing nice Canelo Alvarez:
