For those who don’t follow boxing, like me, you often wonder how the sport still remains to be relevant in this day and age. With the UFC becoming more popular than ever, boxing has fallen behind a bit in the ratings. But if there’s one guy that can still make the sport as relevant as ever, it’s Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather, who is currently 43-0, is arguably the most controversial boxer in recent memory. Every time Mayweather has a match, people will tune in just to see if his undefeated streak will come to an end. Last night, I was one of them, and I don’t normally watch boxing.
Surprisingly, I watched all twelve rounds of last night’s match. As expected, Mayweather dominated throughout most of the night. Miguel Cotto, Mayweather’s opponent, couldn’t seem to get much working in his favor. Mayweather is efficient, agile, and he knows what he’s doing in the ring. It was evident early on that Mayweather was unsurprisingly going to pick up the win. But regardless of the inevitable, Cotto didn’t give up. Cotto managed to throw a few punches that plummeted Mayweather’s face towards the end of the match. Despite the effort by Cotto, Mayweather seemingly had everything under control. Last night’s match ended with Mayweather being victorious upon the judges’ decision after the end of the final round.
Who will be Mayweather’s next opponent? Is there anyone out there that even has a chance against someone as impeccable as Mayweather? No matter what you might think of him outside the ring, you have to admire the hard work he has put in to get where he is at today. It’ll be interesting to see who, if anyone at all, his next opponent will be. Regardless of who that might be, there’s one thing I know for sure: I’ll be watching.
