Why We Watch, II

Both my fight predictions for the Cinco de Mayo lineup turned out to be pretty accurate, but that’s not why the 70$ high definition price tag felt like a bargain after last night’s tribute to athleticism. Four of the sports top competitors got in the ring and all of them brought their best effort and an impressive skill set. While popular opinion did prevail in predictions, the performances by Miguel Cotto and Shane Mosley were entirely worthy of their venerable reputation. The projected record numbers for pay-per-view purchases and views have yet to be confirmed, but Mayweather’s unprecedented single-event guarantee of $32 million says it all. The future, for now, is uncertain for all those involved, but boxing grew a little this weekend.
