The World Awaits
In recent years, fight fans have been blessed with some great billings: Aldo vs McGregor, Bisping vs GSP, GGG vs Canelo x2, Pacquiao vs Mayweather, Mayweather vs McGregor, so on and so forth. This weekend, though, the fight of the century is going down.
Wasn’t Mayweather vs Pacquiao supposed to be the fight of the century? Wasn’t it a complete bore? Yes, and yes. However, both fighters were way out of their prime and their rivalry had died down completely by the time they made the walk to the squared circle. People bought into the fight simply because they were finally getting something everyone wanted for years- even if it was 5 years too late.
