This was FOTY so far. I thought Chocolatito won 116-112 but I thought his rounds were more obvious than Estrada's. About half could have gone either way but I thought Chocolatito safely won the other six. If you flip a coin for the other six rounds and only give Chocolatito one, he wins the majority of the time. That's why I fought the 117-111 card for Estrada was so weird.
Okay, this is even better than Pac/GarciaCrawford would easily represent Pacquiao's biggest challenge since he met Floyd Mayweather in a 2015 super fight that shattered revenue records.theathletic.com
The only place they can get the money to make this happen is in the Middle East. Hopefully this happens.
That's what I don't get. These freak shows would seem indicate a further sign of a massive decline but boxing industry seems healthiest it has been since the '90sAnd it's all the weirder because the, you know, actual boxing is good right now. Some great fights have been put together despite covid. I think there will be more of those when crowds return.

Although I suppose you could come up with a galaxy brained argument that boxing industry is doing so well that these old dogs are able to make millions farting around in exhibitions instead of being discarded to the dung heaps of pugilistic history like past retired fighters.
