It’s Lonely At The Top…In A Dead Sport: Floyd Mayweather Retires Undefeated From Boxing

You know what I find annoying about Floyd Mayweather? He thinks he’s so fuckin great:

Okay, fine: so he managed to retire with an undefeated record: 49 fights, 49 wins. Alright, I’ll give it to him: he’s victorious, he’s consistent, he’s successful…in a dying sport called “boxing” that today essentially amounts to nothing more than glorified patty cake:

Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration, I know. Boxing is certainly no bitch sport, and yes: if I ever stepped foot in the ring with even the worst fighter, I’d probably get obliterated.

But let’s be honest: things evolve, sports evolve, and they naturally adapt to become more extreme and demanding—but in the case of boxing, it’s kind of remained frozen in time, stagnating into a boring display of assumed excitement, rather than the kind of genuine buzz that sprouts from grassroots movements…you know, like mixed martial arts.

No, that’s not Floyd Mayweather

There’s no denying: UFC, and MMA in general, is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, and for good reason: it’s a display of the absolute cutting-edge of athletic fighting potential, not limited to glorified patty cake, but instead incorporating nearly every element and range of fighting imaginable—all condensed into high-intensity, high-energy batttles that result in more blood, broken bones, and brutal knockouts than boxing could ever hope to provide.

And yes, beneath all the blood is a science just as “sweet” as in boxing…

And so the reason I find Floyd Mayweather particularly annoying is not that he’s a great athlete: he undeniably is amazing.

Instead, what I find annoying is his over-glorification of himself, via his bling-bling-rap-style celebration of his money:

He calls his crew “The Money Team”

It’s also the way I’ve noticed some black supremacists/racialists who, desperate for a black role model in a country they claim is “white supremacist”—champion this man as proof of black superiority over other races:

It’s Whitey’s Fault

 

Well, I hate to break the news to you all, but the cozy mountaintop that Floyd sits undefeated upon isn’t lonely because greatness comes with solitude—it’s lonely because boxing is a dead sport.

Okay, sure: Mayweather VS Pacquiao was one of the highest-selling fights of all time (and also the most boring of all time), but now that Mayweather is retiring undefeated, that means that a huge part of what made the sport “exciting” (Mayweather) is now gone forever.

In fact, now, it’ll basically be impossible for boxing to ever be more exciting than what Floyd was able to bring, simply for the fact that any fighter who does not surpass his 49-fight winning streak will always be deemed as lesser.

Until someone with either greater charisma or a greater fighting record comes along, boxing will continue to stagnate as a sport.

So, my annoyance with the whole Floyd Mayweather over-glorification circle jerk is that it’s all…it’s all very self-congratulatory, almost as if nobody is there for the love of the sport, but instead for the love of feeling like they’re part of something big, thus creating this artificial celebration of nothing very special as Mayweather consistently pretends that the UFC doesn’t exist and doesn’t know who Ronda Rousey is.

The denialism inherent in the Mayweather worship is really just a pathetic display of black racialist worship, as well as what happens when people become more interested in the money, than the love of the sport:
