Mayweather-McGregor Lived Up To Its Hype
Cut to 9:00 pm on a Saturday night of the biggest sports spectacles of the year, and we cannot get into Red Lion. Our plan had been to pay 20 dollars to watch the fight at a bar close to our friend’s location, and if that didn’t work, we would head to my place for the fight with a few dudes. We decided to check on Brothers in Milwaukee to see if they had room available which they did for 20 dollars. It was worth the money as Mayweather-McGregor was as good as you would have wanted it to be, and the people who are saying otherwise are failing to comprehend what this was all about.
As I told someone, I’m secretly a boxing guy from the last five years or so. We started streaming big fights from our apartment in Eau Claire my final year, and since then, I usually try to catch big fights when I can. That said, I’m not a boxing purist by any means. I worried throughout the day on Saturday we would get a classic Floyd fight where he does absolutely nothing for 12 rounds. That did not happen at all. Sure, you can say Mayweather wore McGregor down in the first three rounds, but the boxing great had to figure out McGregor’s style which led to an aggressive Floyd which we haven’t seen much.
That’s what made the fight great. We actually saw boxing. Sure, it may have been as predictable as Jon Snow and Dany fucking in last night’s Game of Thrones finale, but we got to see a fight for 10 rounds with a knockout. What more do you want? Everyone left the bar happy they paid 20 dollars to watch that fight. No one thought this was a waste of time, and that’s so major on trying to get people back in on fights such as this one. They hyped the living hell out of this fight and it delivered.
Until the next one,
