The Fight! #MayweatherPacquiao #MayPac

Very few things unite Americans of all classes, races, backgrounds, etc. like a big fight. I don’t say that to be all PC, it is just an observation. I overheard women at work today talking about the fight. Problem is, we don’t have big fights like we used to. We haven’t had a really big fight in a couple of decades. People say boxing has fallen, and it has, but there is still a market for boxing when you have big personalities and compelling match-ups. I love the Klitschko brothers, but we need some good American heavyweights and some stars at the lighter weights, like Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler and Tommy Hearns used to be.

I will always love MMA, but I don’t see boxing and MMA as competitors. I see them as complementary. I believe a thriving fight scene will lift all boats.

Anyway, here is my prediction: Floyd Mayweather will fairly easily out box Pacquiao. Mayweather by a rather lopsided decision.

    I haven’t watched boxing since MMA came along. Most boxing matches are pretty boring..Some MMA fights are pretty boring too (Daniel Cormier and Cain Velasquez for example are boring fighters), but at least a boring MMA fight does not go on as long as a boring boxing match. And most MMA fights are relatively exciting due to the much greater variety of techniques permitted.
