"Busy Weekends"

Hello Rock-A-Holics! I’m glad to see your liver survived another weekend; I know my barely did. Saturday was a busy day full of drinking, celebrating, and of course, pay-per- viewing! Even if you don’t care for boxing, you couldn’t hide from all the hype that Saturday’s big fight bought; social media was covered in nothing but fight updates. I haven’t watched a bunch of boxing myself but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the crap out of that fight. I don’t care what you think about Conor McGregor, you have to give that guy credit for going almost 10 rounds against one of the best boxers of our time. The big controversy, for those of you who missed it, was the referee calling the fight early. Floyd was applying heavy pressure to McGregor and it looked like the fight had become one sided so I don’t blame the ref for calling it, but I would have liked to see more of a decisive blow to end it. Here what McGregor has to say about it.

 

Check out McGregor’s post-fight interview:

 

No surprise he wanted to keep fighting, but I don’t think he had a second wind in him to make it 12 rounds. I did want McGregor to win, mostly because he was the underdog, but the gambler in me had to place a small bet on Floyd. I was very intoxicated by the end of the fight and accidentally broke a shot glass when Mayweather won. A bit of an excessive celebration but what can I say, a win is a win. I’m going to have to spend the rest of my Monday catching up on sleep because Sunday was dedicated to nursing my hangover.

 

Do you think the fight got called too early? Are you happy with the outcome? ​
