People like/love both for their own reasons, but when it comes down to it boxing/baseball is the past and UFC/football is the future. With that said I enjoy all the sports, it's just the talent pool in boxing is not their anymore, which is sad.
No respect of Mayweather, all he cares about is $ and acts like some kind of thug or rapper, don't beat your wife and you wont lose everyones respect.
I don't think either are things of the past. Its actually way simple to figure out. Americans aren't the best anymore.
As far as the "rapper/thug" act. Its just that. Its a marketing thing. He started it about when he went with De La Hoya. Before he was Pretty Boy Floyd fightingbthe Shamba Mitchells of the world in cities like Portland and if IRCC that wasn't even on PPV. Now under his new brand he is one of the biggest PPV draws if not the biggest. As far as UFC his numbers CRUSH UFC PPV numbers by a landslide.
I also and neither do you know enough about him beating his wife to make anybreal judgement on it. I've seen too many he said she saids and he be punished. My guess is if that is a reason for you to dislike him I'd bet you didn't like him that much to begin with.
@Pe. His fights are not borrowing if you enjoy the Sweet Science. He and Hopkins have been two of my favorites to watch.
