This Promo That Floyd Mayweather Posted Proves That His "Fight" With Conor McGregor Is A Complete Sham
Well, it was fun while it lasted. Well, not for someone like me that never bought into the idea of two of the most egomaniacal athletes - that partake in combat sports that require completely different skill sets - choosing to fight for paychecks that differed greatly in size. However, I suppose it was fun for those that believed that this blatantly obvious, albeit successful, attempt at a publicity stunt was rooted at all in reality.
Unfortunately all good pipe dreams must come to an end, and the idea of Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor stepping into a boxing ring is no different. Don't believe me? Just take a look at this online promo that Floyd Mayweather posted on his FaceBook. Does that look like an advertisement for a matchup that could potential be worth hundreds of millions of dollars in 2016? I could have put together that marketing campaign, and the one time I used photoshop to took me an hour to place Mayweather's head on Holly Holm's body (for obvious reasons). That looks like something that would be posted up on a light pole or a public billboard after being mass produced by the first color printer ever distributed. The bland capitalized yellow font? The nondescript black background? Tell me, does Pretty Boy Floyd ever spare an expense when it comes to being flashy and gaudy? Then why the hell would he let his billion dollar brand - that is all too important to him - get represented by a mid-tier middle school computer project. Even if this was real, McGregor would probably call of the fight because Floyd's team didn't even respect him enough to put the last name that so proudly displays his heritage on there. If I wasn't already sure this was nothing more than a ruse to get both their names trending then I certainly would now, because high maintenance, narcissistic dickheads don't endorse their inter-sport pay-per-views with something straight of a tutorial for 'Microsoft Paint'.
