Boxing has fallen so far. It's basically a joke sport now with no legitimacy and a willingness to sell out for any kind of short term boost and paycheck.

Mayweather didn't prove himself smart by collecting a big paycheck, he demonstrated how willing he and the sport are to rig matches for profitable results thereby bringing his entire career and legacy into question.
Even Ali stages phony fights like this. This stuff is about as old as boxing. We just choose to ignore history.

Anyway, I had zero interest in this. I wasn't going to pay, and didn't even care to stream it. I knew it was going to be a snoozer. At least the Connor fight had some literal intrigue leading up to it. Some of us wanted to see if Connor could actually land a few punches on that infamous Mayweather defense. Not many of us expected him to win, but I tuned in to see what he could do with his hands anyway.

By comparison, WTF do I give a shit about a YT troll? I never watched even a single millisecond of anything those Paul jackoffs put on YT. Haven't even clicked on something of theirs by accident. The YT algorithm won't disrespect me like that. So I wasn't going to watch Money collect another paycheck facing an absolute bum, who would get his ass handed to him by a nobody from a Bronx gym. I'm disappointed anyone bothered to watch. There're better forms of entertainment than this.

The only thing about this that will be remembered is jake/logan whichever one fought saying "I hate being a dickhead; I love you guys." because of how stupid it sounded.

Tyson even in his fifties is one hell of a scary fighter.
Agreed. Still a beast.

The impressions I've heard from people who've visited his podcast is that it's like sitting next to a full-stomach Lion who knows he's king of the jungle and could prove it to you at any time, but chooses mercy.

Was the money so good that Floyd could throw the fight and embellish his record even if unofficially?

I mean, damn, even with Conor you at least got a real war and some true blue efforts to make it a fight.

This was just sad.

The YouTuber can move his head pretty well when he wasnt gassed out, I'll give him that much.

the thorough lack of fustigation has resulted in an excess frustigation

not sure I'd go that far, but when you hear boxers and their teams unwilling to come to agreements on where to fight, sponsorships etc and just conditions that make them come across as prima donnas, not a fighters, totally with you on what boxing has become.
