Let the casual fans, like me, not fool you into believing their opinion on the Mayweather vs Pacquiao showdown matters. There’s no point of me participating in this circus. There’ll be countless debates for days, weeks, months and maybe years to come. Who was the better fighter? Who won which round? Did the match-up come too late into their careers? Should there be a rematch? All valid questions but all questions best left to the pundits of boxing.
Casual fans, like me, can only rejoice that an exciting pairing such as this was made possible.
The euphoria will peter out but in its immediate aftermath it has delivered a much needed jolt to the world of boxing. No matter the sport it is always a thrill for die-hards and casuals to see two equally matched opponents lock horns. Sides may be taken but the victor at the end day is the sport which pleases existing fans, finds new followers and hopefully keeps the momentum going to retain them.
