Lets count the things wrong with tonight.
First off, this is the big show... the big hurrah. A guy who lost to better fighters in DLH loses what boils down to a dance contest against PBF, who's best offence seems to be not getting hit and letting the guy tire himself...and we are supposed to believe that this settles the best PFP fighter arguement.
With that? ... sorry not impressed. PBF shows exactly the difference between the heart of boxing and the heart of fighting. A fighter goes to fight, and PBF fought not to lose...in my opinion, the man didn't WIN shit.
Also, please fill me in on the great card tonight. Tell me about the undercard that stole the show and we will soon see these guys come up as contenders for a belt? Yes?....Soon to be greats on their way?
I didn't really believe that boxing was on the decline until tonight...how can anybody that's a fan of both be willing to spend twice as much on a show thats half as good? I love wrestling, grappling and kickboxing with a similar zeal that I enjoy boxing, but no way would I pay to watch what boils down to two guys do any of these things for 50 bucks.
I will continue to watch and enjoy boxing, but buy a PPV? They can kiss my ass...I will watch it on HBO or at a buddies house if I don't have anything better to do that night.
Between the fiasco olympic boxing has become and 50 dollar PPV snoozefests involving a multi-millonare fight a weak, half-hearted fight and then retire claiming to be the greatest PFP fighter on the planet has left a bad taste in my mouth.
Goodnight boxing...I had my doubts but they have been cleaned up. I will always be a fan but my money goes to MMA from this point forward... and only MMA.
