    It may or may not be staged but you gotta credit them for knowing how to sell fights

    only reason why I think it may not be staged is that Mayweather wouldn’t accept getting punkd like that even if it’s for show. There are other ways to sell fights that don’t involve him getting embarrassed

    Oh nice you’re going to try and call me out for that. Well I gave money probably a decade ago.

    I’m currently a single parent. Work weekends while going to school. And go to take my son to select soccer practice and AAU bball practice 5 days a week.

    Thanks for throwing that in my face though.

    shouldn't people who pay for services get to use the services and have higher priority than non paying people?

    I made my case and the Mayweather did make it about race?
    Yes

    Evidence

    Non Contributing Members can't tell what can be posted or not posted to Contributing Members

    Especially if it's completely false.
    Plenty of threads about Race here.

    Sorry it doesn't fit your version of Clutchfans, but for my version of Clutchfans that I pay for, you can talk abour RACE in this section.

    I posted video evidence here:

    I think its a cheap sell of race, two guys who literally feed off of controversy, a media that will eat it all up. Controversy and this crap sells, both of their careers are based on that, although mayweather is a smart and talented and accomplished boxer. Let alone he was smart enough to break the most ridiculous boxing organization of producing his own fights. The other youtube kids sell controversy, they know people like rooting against them and play the heel.

    This is just WWE type of junk, but it will make money without a doubt. With the size difference, I wonder how its going to go or if its note foregone planned as well.

    I agree that they are subtly try to throw in some race heat here, But anyone can cite an opinion on twitter, let alone with one like to back their claim as well.

    But its the car wreck theory, we all slow down to see it. The most popular stuff in the 'twitter' age aren't things with content, debt, and detail. ITs people who know how to stir up a little controversy, create a headline, and make it appealing to those with short attention spans. See the last president's popularity, see who he leaned on for criminal jusice, a Kardashian in the white house, also one of the most highly rated shows of people doing nothing. Before that I think it was Jersey Shore.

    Wait, why is Mayweather the most hated black athlete? I've never heard that before.

    His boxing persona is a character. It is not who he really is. I've heard from people who actually know him that he's kind and mature off-camera. "Money Mayweather" is a character that increases the ratings.

    I don't know anything about the Pauls.
