  • OPINION: Mayweather packs a (domestic) punch

    With all the hype surrounding the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight, it seems far too easy to ignore the fact that one of the fighters is a convicted abuser and a misogynist who has never been properly punished for his deeds. Unless a sinkhole opens up or Floyd Mayweather decides to donate a large sum of his earnings to a charitable cause, preferably one fighting against domestic violence, there is no way the fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao could ever live up to the hype that has surrounded it for the last five years. If you didn’t already feel inadequate about your meagre existence then dull your day with the thought that Mayweather will earn more in the time the fight lasts than you will earn your entire life.
