CANELO vs. MAYWEATHER…..or as I like to call it THE GINGERBREAD MAN vs. EVIL…Who will you be rooting for this Saturday night?
This good vs. evil fight is to go down in the books, a blockbuster fight seeing how both fighters are undefeated. In the blue corner, Saul Canelo Alvarez, a red-headed undefeated Mexican fighter from Guadelajara (woot!) who helps old ladies cross the streets and rescues cats from trees on fire. In the red corner, Floyd Mayweather Jr., the undefeated spawn of Satan.
If you are questioning who to root for in this fight, get off this blog now……seriously.
This fight is being promoted as “The One”- as in the one that could finally end Floyd Mayweather’s reign of terror. Slightly south of $19 million just from ticket goers alone, the fight will bring Mayweather $40 million plus a pay-per-view showing that could near 2 million buys. Jeez. The guy is 44-0, you do that math. This is a big fight, probably the biggest fight in combat sports history, with SOOOooOOO much riding on the line.
How can you NOT root the Gingerbread man? Alvarez has long been touted as the guy to topple Mayweather and now he gets his chance, with a plethora of titles on the line. Alvarez’s WBA, WBC and The Ring light middleweight title are up for grabs alongside Floyd’s super light middleweight title. Can he do it? Yes. Yes he can. And he WILL.
If there is any good left in the world, Canelo will win this fight. How the hell can you or anybody for that matter, root for Mayweather? Honestly, the man is a god awful terrible human being. He is a racist, a narcissist, a sexist, a money hungry big mouth and everything else in between.
You would think you would want an undefeated fighter to win and stay undefeated, but not, not this guy in a long shot. Mayweather makes it really easy for anyone to hate him. During Mayweather vs. De La Hoya fight promotion, Mayweather came out dressed like a “mexican” in a sombero and poncho. Oscar de la Hoya is a Mexican American fighter. This all took place on Cinco de Mayo. Ok…….
During his so-called tiff with Manny Pacquiao, a Filipino fighter with whom he has long had a war of words with over their inability to a potential matchup, he called him a “little yellow chump.” Then he went on to say, “Once I stomp the midget, I’m gonna make that mother fucker make me a sushi roll.” YEA, I am going to spell out F-U-C-K because that’s what the racist said. No holding back here yo.
IF you ever watched Mayweather when he WAS on HBO Boxing (WAS being the operative word because he left HBO for Showtime for more “money”… Let’s be honest, HBO couldn’t stand his ass anymore), every word out of his mouth was “ME,” “MONEY,” “The GREATEST,” and “SHUTUP.” The dude literally got in a fight with his own father on the show, threatening to beat him up if he didn’t leave HIS gym. We get it, you are a fighter, but to fight your own father? Oh wait, it gets better, because as more information unfolds you will see that Mayweather is just a misunderstood family man.
“Floyd made a business decision that is best for him and best for his family,” said Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, about leaving for the Showtime network. Best for his family you say? Well, that is interesting.
Mayweather loves his family so much he had to express his emotions the only way he knows how. In September 2012, he beat up his baby mama, Josie Harris, as two of their babies watched no less. Mayweather pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of misdemeanor battery domestic violence, and no contest to a pair of harassment charges.
I’m not saying Canelo is an angel but to everyone’s knowledge, he is the better man. Shoot, any man with a library card is a better man than Mayweather.
So if you find yourself rooting for this horrible human being tomorrow night, please, go punch yourself in the face. Thank you.
(Hopefully he will look like this after his defeat on Saturday night)–>
