Even Ali stages phony fights like this. This stuff is about as old as boxing. We just choose to ignore history.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.
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.
