Mayweather vs. McGregor: Worth every penny

Everybody had a right to smell a rat. Mayweather was a boxing champion. McGregor wasn’t even a boxer. Mayweather was an athlete with fast fists. McGregor was from a sport where guys usually fought using their feet. Mayweather was out to become the greatest undefeated boxer since Rocky Marciano. McGregor was just about the biggest underdog since Rocky Balboa.
Promoters were paying millions to the opponents. Customers were paying thousands for tickets. TV viewers were shelling out $99.99 for pay-per-view. Bookmakers were laying odds that there was seriously no way Mayweather could lose. Physicians were issuing warnings that McGregor could get seriously hurt.
All were in for quite a surprise.
A boxer vs. a mixed martial artist really was a sort of sport after all. It wasn’t ludicrous like Michael Phelps swimming against a shark. It wasn’t gross like counting how many hot dogs Joey Chestnut can jam down his throat.
