Confirmed for Las Vegas.

More spectacle than sport, but it’s not going to lack for hype, attention or PPV buys.

Straight boxing absent a gentleman’s agreement to carry McGregor so they can both walk away with pride intact many, many millions richer, Floyd is winning easily no matter what the hot take contrarians will say over the next few months.

Obviously, a MMA fight or even just a standup fight that would allow elbows, knees and kicks would be a different story. But that’s not what’s they’re doing.

I’m not paying for it, but I’ll definitely watch it if you are and invite me.
