The Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing promotion is fully underway this week and it is just as much a freak show as I thought it would be.
From a purely boxing point of view, I have little interest in the bout. It is a gross mismatch in favour of Mayweather, who faces an opponent who has no professional boxing experience. Aside from being meaningless, the bout will likely be fairly dull, with the only fire works coming if Mayweather picks McGregor apart to a point where a knockout is possible.
That said, after noticing something curious in Thursday’s promotional event in New York City, I decided to take a closer look at the fight for my boxing column over at 8 Count Media.
So head over to 8 Count to read my column and let me know what you think of this circus.
