SouthPaul says:

And there you have it, Mr Boxing Fan! Take a close look at those ticket prices . The minium price ... which is nose bleed...$350.00. The minium wagers of the boxing world would have to work an entire week to see Floyd and Canelo do their 36 minutes of labor. Next time you see Floyd throwing money around like it means nothing, just know, you contributed. Lmfao. Mildly disgusting.

Radam G says:

Money May knows how to get paid for minor labor work. He will be painting the red-headed hype whole nine. Holla!

SouthPaul says:

Radam

Close your eyes (well, after you read this close 'em) now take yourself back to your days of an up and boxing comer. Back to the days of making a few grand per fight, maybe less. How aggravating would it be back then to know you'd be fighting on such a wealthy fight card like this ....so much money being passed around .... Big money for certan folks involved ..... All the while Radam is giving up his blood, sweat, and tears to entertain those hardcore fans who showed up when the doors opened. What is my rant here? Hopefully no one on this card is making less 5 figures, including non televised. If so, social injustice!

The Sweet Science .... Sort of sour for some. Truly feast or famon.

Radam G says:

SP, Five figures for every fighter on this card ain't happening. I alreadly know three prelim punching bags with eyeballs who are excited about bagging $5,000.

I was a well-connected college-educated fighter who would suit at the ring of a bell. Now with the hookups that I had, I never fought for less than five figures. I also didn't start off fighting stiffs and cadavers in four-round fights. Nobody who was a standout amateur should be allowed to fight four-round fights. And allow only two six rounders, three or four eight rounders, then never less than 10 rounders. My fourth fight was for 12 rounds, but I kayoed the chump in four. Holla!

SouthPaul says:

I know it ain't happening, brother, and it disgust me. Such a wealthy card...never to be shared properly. Puke.

I have a dream... That one day all financier fans ban together and go no show on one of these mega events.

The roaring cheers replaced with echoing sounds of crickets.

amayseng says:

Radam when did you retire and why?

SP I'm with ya it is financial injustice.


My dad used to say ( and he was a stellar athlete himself and huge fan) the best sthlete per sport

Should not make more than 1 million a year.

That would force them to be better.

Radam G says:

I'm in eternal recess. I never formally retired. Without given out my ID, I'm known for winning LARGE LAWSUITS from some thieving promoters and a couple of the alphabet-sanctioning outfits and a couple corrupted state commissions. Holla!
