Boxing has not been talked about in years. The undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. promise that Victor Ortiz won’t last the distance. Most analyst agree with “Money” Mayweather. When they meet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena tonight they are calling for a TKO, KO or unanimous decision for the Mayweather camp. Its a pretty safe bet. The ever confident Mayweather who has an unblemished record of 41-0 seems to not be taking any notice of the Ortiz. Treating more like an upstart rather than the champion he is.
This is what it has come to; a reality show. The 24-7 show is not must see tv. It’s more like a infomercial gear at driving up interest in the fight than anything else. It does however have a side effect. How much of a tool Mayweather can be. It also shows the hard work that goes into training for a fight. The show is long and pretty entertaining. Twitter and Facebook already people picking sides. In this day and age we should know each blow as it happens in realtime even if you are not watching the fight. That might be just what the failing sport needs,
The only thing that can help Ortiz win this fight is a “Lucky Punch.” South Paws always have an easy time with righties. The thing is righties get hit up lucky punches all the time from the south paws. Even though Ortiz is 10 years younger and stringer than Mayweather; he is too inexperienced to go through every round with a seasoned champion. The fight will get a lot of buzz and be featured on your twitter feeds as well as the Facebook wall of your friends. In the end it should be a good fight that will help a sport in need.
