Floyd Mayweather fought another boxer who wasn't Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night, dispatching Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision.
Mayweather ran his record to 43-0 with the win, then probably went straight to work spending as much of his $32 million up-front purse immediately afterward. (Seriously, this dude will be broke by 2017. Read this story, then tell me you disagree.)
Perhaps you were one of the tens of thousands who dropped $59.95 to watch the fight on pay-per-view. If you didn't think you got your money's worth -- and you lament the loss of heavyweight giants like Tyson, Holmes, Foreman, Holyfield et. al -- Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best feels you.
Boxing is weak now... Heavyweights need to come back ?? #wasteofmoneyâ Jahvid Best (@J4hvidbest) May 5, 2012
It's important to note that despite mixed-martial arts' huge cultural gains in the past decade, boxing retains a die-hard core fan base. Best was bombarded by criticism for his tweet, including one user who (perhaps fairly) replied, "you're weak, RB's need to come back"
TouchÃ©... and a point Jim Brown undoubtedly would get behind.
Inevitably, things became more personal when a Best follower poked fun at the running back's concussion issues.
