Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett penned an open letter claiming that he was racially profiled and stopped by Las Vegas police after the Floyd Mayweather-vs.-Conor McGregor fight Aug. 26. According to Bennett’s Twitter post, he was leaving the T-Mobile Arena when he and others in the crowd heard what they…
Of the myriad justifications for 1) witnessing the sham “fight” between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor and 2) finding joy in the serial domestic abuser’s win, the worst is that Mayweather’s pummeling of Caucasian Jidenna was some sort of existential victory for blackness. “They” lost last night and “we” won.
I didn’t have $100 for this so-called fight, and I kinda forbade asked my husband not to order it. Therefore, I got my Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight moments from social media. Here are the five things this reporter found the most interesting:
The fight that no one wants to pay for but everyone kind of wants to see, if only to laugh as Floyd Mayweather Jr. beats the stuffing out of Conor McGregor, is Saturday. We all know that this is going to be a shit show of epic proportions. It most likely won’t even be remotely entertaining.
Look, I understand that Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor have to sell tickets to this sham disguised as an evenly contested boxing match, but Thursday’s New York City appearance at the Barclays Center just took boxing into racist theatrics that would make even the WWE cringe.
One of the ongoing jabs against the pound-for-pound undisputed greatest boxer (sorry, Vasyl Lomachenko) Floyd Mayweather Jr. is that while he’s a multimillionaire with several exotic women at his side, he has trouble reading big words aloud.
My favorite boxer is Rocky Balboa. Sure, he’s a fictional character played by Sylvester Stallone, but outside of Mike Tyson appearing in those Hangover movies, Balboa’s pretty much the only thing I’ve ever liked about boxing. That is until this Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor fight.
The Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor spectacle officially began Tuesday as the two fighters kicked off their four-stop tour in Los Angeles to promote Mayweather’s Aug. 26 brutal assault of the MMA fighter.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather wants to make it clear that he isn’t ducking paying his taxes. In fact, the undefeated fighter, who is set to take on the Great White Hope in August, claims that he paid the IRS $26 million in 2015.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. is rich. Superrich. He’s also really shallow and vapid. As such, he has 100 girlfriends and almost as many cars. It’s hard to keep up with the reported $700 million he’s made during his fight career, but at one point, Mayweather was burning $100 bills in the club.
The biggest fight that no one cares about and yet everyone cares about is finally happening. Unbeaten and undisputed pound-for-pound greatest boxer, and arguably all-around horrible person, Floyd Mayweather will be fighting some white Irish UFC guy on Aug 26.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has retired from boxing, at least for now, but that doesn’t mean youth-cheerleading judges can’t catch these hands.
