I have no interest in watching boxing, UFC, etc.
I'm with you here.

As a kid, I was into wrestling, but that was in the 80s. When it went "extreme" and got really bloody/gory, they lost me. So boxing, UFC, MMA.. none of it appeals to me.

BL.

I guess Floyd doesn't like people talking about his abusing ways.

Just hours before Saturday night's long-anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, both Rachel Nichols of CNN and Michelle Beadle of ESPN and HBO announced on Twitter that they've been "banned" from the fight.

While they didn't explain the reason for the alleged ban, they've both been prominent in the discussion on Mayweather's history of domestic violence.

Beadle and Nichols posted the news within minutes of each other, with both claiming that Mayweather's camp — which is the lead promoter of the fight through Mayweather Promotions — was responsible for the decision.

...Mayweather is pretty smart
I agree. Smart enough to avoid anyone good when in their prime.

When did collegiate or USA Wrestling ever get bloody/gory?

The irony that people will pay millions to see two people beat each other up at the same time protests are going on to end violence in our streets.

Fight of the century? I think the fan who tried to get a selfie with Tyson at the weigh in was a bigger bout. Outside of core boxing fans, nobody I know has even mentioned this fight.

Boxing like tennis, swimming, hockey, judo, taekwondo, running, wrestling, and MMA are all niche sports. They typically draw former and current competitors and their families. Nothing much new there, I think.

Hockey isn't a niche sport.

I, too, thought I couldn't care less.

But then I tried really hard, and I cared even lesser.
