I Wasted $60 And An Hour, Thanks Floyd

Boxing sucks. If Floyd Mayweather vs. Juan Manuel Marquez is the best boxing can do, then I’m done. 

Floyd might be the best boxer in the game right now, but his fights are, for the lack of a better word, boring. 

We just watched 12 rounds and my friend’s Pekingese running around the room is more entertaining than Floyd and Marquez in the ring. Plus, there’s some mob-like stiff on the very far right of the screen, “Goodfellas” style, that has drawn the attention of most of the 15 people in the fight’s viewing room.

Boxing blows. I should have spent my money on the underwhelming UFC fight card than boxing’s supposed biggest draw – Floyd.

To be honest, HBO’s “24/7″ episodes were much more entertaining than anything these fighters did in the ring Saturday night. At least the show gave us Marquez drinking his own piss. 

Hey boxing, fuck you.

And Floyd, keep your $10 million. I’m done.

  2. If Pacquiao ain’t fighting it ain’t worth buying. At least (from what I heard) Katsidis put on a great show.

  5. I actually didn’t think it was that bad of a fight. It was about what I expected. Two counter punchers going at it with the naturally faster and bigger guy cruising along. Granted, Floyd didn’t take many chances, but Marquez has never been stopped so “going for the kill” would have been foolish. It was a subpar fight from an entertainment standpoint, but I always enjoy watching Floyd’s shoulder roll on display. I think Floyd will make Pacquiao look foolish. Marquez set the precedent of how to beat Pac Man… sharp, quick, precise counter shots. Floyd is better than Marquez in all these departments and also has the sickest defense in the game so I’m beginning to think that Floyd is a nightmare matchup for Pacquaio. Floyd will make Pac Man look like an amateur to the displeasure of many fans.
