The most anticipated boxing fight since EVER will be taking place in front of our very own eyes tonight. Oh man, this is huge. Some would even say this is a sporting event that we will remember for years to come. A fight that will go down in history.
But does it deserve to be?
It will only be a fight worth watching and remembering depending upon the outcome. Duh.
Floyd Mayweather is a horrible human being, plain and simple. Manny Pacquiao is a humanitarian, a congressmen, a diplomat, a Christian, a man you would proudly shake hands with. I think my friend Ken said it best:
However, Ken does make a point about the outcome of the fight. Pacquiao may not even have a shot.
Do you agree with Ken’s words? More or less, I do agree that this isn’t going to be an exciting fight. But it is a fight we all want to be a part of. It is a fight that may turn out in Pacquiao’s favor. But the odds are not in his favor. They will never be. The odds are in Vegas’s favor and Mayweather owns Vegas.
I don’t want to give any credit to Mayweather’s “strategic thinking” capabilities (because those capabilities can’t even read a page of a Harry Potter book), but he and his team only accepted this fight because they all know he can win. This Pacquiao fight should have happened years ago when Pacquiao and his team first initiated the discussion.
But we all know who the real winner is. It’s just that Mayweather will never admit it. He only sees dollar signs and title wins as life. That isn’t life. He will only admit his defeat if he loses not once but twice to Manny. It is stipulated in their contract that if Mayweather loses tonight, he is guaranteed a rematch with Manny. Great, another snore.
If Floyd Mayweather wins, we all lose. But if Pacquiao wins, then maybe there is a glint of hope still left in humanity. So here’s to the human race!
