He says we are currently experiencing a boxing trend with a wide variety of elements: influencer and youtubers events, participation of athletes from other sports inside the ring mixed martial arts fighters trying boxing and retired boxes.
Returning to the ring, this phenomenon is not new, it has happened in the past, but sporadically as unique and independent events.
We saw muhammad ali fight against the japanese wrestler inoki, who never got off the mat and kicked him all the fight.
We also saw baseball player jose cansenko, who stepped into the ring to receive a beating two tall jones of the dallas cowboys, had six professional fights, winning all and mickey rourke used to go to japan, uh thrilling his fans and fighting their bolster by his fame.
As a hollywood gigolo fair enough, the current trend is not something sporadic, it has already emerged on various fronts and it seems to be something continuous, obviously, all based on the money that has been generated.
It all started during the pandemic, the world paused and stopped.
There were no sporting events for several months, and the confinement led us to a mental change so full of nostalgia.
We started doing things at home that we missed and gave us passion and pleasure in life.
Mike tyson returned to boxing training in doing so, he overcame his terrible depression and shed weight by training for a couple months and by uploading a video of just six seconds on his social networks.
So the world began to dream and imagine what it would be like to see iron mike back in the ring me miguel.
As i affectionately call him began to organize an event with specific characteristics.
It would be an exhibition with headgear 16-ounce, gloves and three rounds match.
Inspired by the events he saw staged by julio cesar chavez and jorge arche exhibitions to entertain the public, to bring happiness to society and, very importantly, for charitable purposes.
Finally, tyson fell into the temptation of money and gave this event to a company called triller who took over and organized it in its entirety.
They went out to look for the rival, which was finally roy jones.
They added the very popular influencer jake paul, who had already, who had actually been boxing for three years and faced a basketball legend plus some official fights between pro boxers.
It was held at the staples center in la without an audience and was complimented by musical acts.
Highlighting snoop dogg, who smoked a huge marijuana cigarette and that’s how the whole stage smelled like tyson, offered a wonderful performance.
They both understand that was about entertaining and at no point tried to hurt each other.
The event was an absolute success: it sold 1.
6 million homes on pay-per-view and that’s where the eyes of many were opened.
Today there are the paul brothers as well as influencers various countries trying to make their events likewise promoters and broadcast platforms are looking for ways to enter this new dynamic.
But the most important thing to note is that retired boxers are looking to get back in the ring.
What happened last saturday was reality.
Realization, thank goodness, there was no serious injury.
Tito ortiz was struck down in less than a minute with a spectacular knockout that could ended in a fatal injury and the great legendary champion.
Evander holyfield was embarrassed in just 90 seconds by a retired mixed martial artist, rival, i’m not interested in analyzing holyfield’s performance and what happened.
It is a blessing that everyone has seen the reality you can’t play boxing former boxers must not return to the ring to fight.
The exhibitions are acceptable as they are with uh as they’re with important security measures, but fighting without headgear and competitively cannot happen.
What happened? Last saturday was a blessing.
There was no serious injury.
I’M not my many legends had left left the ring with painful farewell fights when time took away the physical virtues joe lewis was knocked out by marciano ali by holmes, leonard by camacho, a pues by the unknown nacho madrid chavez by grelli wiley.
All of them closed.
The chapter of life as a boxer and moved on today is different.
Holyfield had not fought in a decade and at 58 he committed a terrible mistake, risking his life and the honor of the sport that gave him everything.
Oscar de la hoya was going to fight.
After 12 years out of the ring, but a signal came from heaven when he contracted covet 19 and had to cancel it verdict.
Beau says he wants to fight, and so the sharks in the business are pitching offers to the legendary but spent to the legendary but spent fighters to use them, give them peanuts and themselves collecting millions.
This needs order in some way the power of money, and the few scruples of a few cannot be more important than integrity and security.
Holyfield can now be once again can now be once again the great leader, but he must also seek the help of his teammates.
