Boxing Promoters

My friend Chris taught me a valuable lesson after the Pacquiao/Cotto fight. When I told him the $54.99 PPV was great for the first six rounds and blah for the last six, he laughed and spewed, “That’s why they’re called boxing promoters.”

That’s all I can think about during all the back-and-forth between Floyd Mayweather and  Pacquiao for their supposedly canceled March 13th fight. As I said in an email with some friends, I’ll believe they’re not fighting when it’s March 13th and they’re not fighting. Even if they do scrap it, it’ll only end up to boost the profile of whenever they eventually do go at it (and they most definitely will) — which would, at least to me, cast doubt on whether there was ever really a March 13th agreement in the first place.
