So I finally got around to watching Mayweather-Hatton 24/7, and I have to say I’m officially fucking hyped for this fight. I know that most boxers aren’t exactly ‘top of the humanity pile’, but Floyd Mayweather Jr comes off looking worse than a puppy strangler at a PETA convention.
Highlights of Mayweather being a jackass included him bragging about his bling being worth more than the GDP of most African countries, claiming he’s a normal parent like everyone else (while they show him chasing his kids around his mansion on a segway), and giving half of England the finger.
Modesty doesn’t exactly become this guy … and cocky isn’t a big enough word to capture what Mayweather is. It’s like trying to use the word ‘human’ to describe super-saiyans or some shit. Because super-saiyans can like throw fireballs out their ass and blow up planets. Mayweather’s ego is super-saiyan sized. On the other hand, Ricky Hatton comes off about as likable as you can get.
Basically this fight boils down to ‘dickhead vs nice guy’. Unfortunately, not many people are giving the nice guy too much of a chance. But one thing is for sure … as soon as we’re done with the TUF finale, I’m hitting up this shit fo’ sure.
