By now, everyone knows that Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao is on for May 2. And by “everyone,” we do mean everyone. The issue, of course, is a signed fight takes away an easy scapegoat when pointing a finger at all of boxing’s ills. But you know what they say about haters and their natural tendencies.
This week on Queensberry Rules Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and TQBR’s Patrick Connor will finally be able to talk about #MayweatherPacquiao (go ahead and click, it’s already huge) without the usual hesitation and skepticism. Well… Not as much, anyway. There are still many questions to be answered, but hows about some sane discussion?
Also on the plate, Gennady Golovkin’s beatdown of Martin Murray in Monte Carlo — which was significant, but paled in comparison to much bigger news — and overseas action, including Tyson Fury’s stay busy bout against Christian Hammer, and Carl Frampton vs. Chris Avalos. And likely more, too.
