What a letdown the past couple of months have been for boxing fans. First was the collapse of the superfight just when it was on the verge of being finalized, then two dull events involving the two men who should have been squaring off against each other.
No one left the MGM buzzing with excitement. No one seemed to think $1,250 for a ringside seat was a great deal, and those who shelled out up to $65 for the pay-per-view telecast must have felt their cash could have been better invested in a couple more 12-packs.
The biggest winner on this night could have been mixed martial arts, where unless Anderson Silva is in the cage, you pay your money and you get your action.
