August 2017 – anything happening this month?
Well only a little known fight featuring Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Conor McGregor.
Holy crap is that going to be a hell of a fight – I can’t wait for it.
I mean sure the fight itself will probably suck – but just the buildup to it is going to be amazing.
Even more importantly is being able to sit and just dream about Conor winning. Sure it won’t happen but it doesn’t mean it’s not fun to imagine it will.
Plus as someone who was a huge boxing fan growing up it’s nice to have some interest in it again. I still watch all the shows but man I’m not exactly loving them.
