Boxing in 2007..

May 06, 2007 | Nestor Aparicio

I know it’s been a little while since I’ve really paid any attention to boxing — probably like most of the rest of you — but I am watching the fight tonight between De La Hoya and Mayweather.

And I’ve gotta tell you, I’ve seen some manure in my day, but nothing more funny and/or campy than that get-up that Floyd Mayweather threw together for Cinco de Mayo. And bringing 50 Cent into the fray by rapping him to the ring. Taunting using patriotism (or anti-patriotism) — the old Apollo Creed tactic.

Since when did boxing in 2007 resemble the cinema of 1976?

Between Jack Nicholson ringside and all of the celebrities (is it POSSIBLE that Jenny McCarthy took a private jet from Louisville to Las Vegas in less than five hours because she was DEFINITELY at both events today?!), the hype is rocking Sin City tonight.

Hi Def rocks…

Michael Buffer is about to get this thing ready to rumble…

De La Hoya looks frightened…

This is is gonna be good!
