Thoughts on a boxing match

As I write this post, I'm watching Conor McGregor's post fight interview after he's lost to Floyd Mayweather. I'm not a big boxing OR MMA fan, but the allure of this fight was too much to stay away from. I've got a bit of a connection to Mayweather. He fought Big Show at WrestleMania 24, which I was in attendance for, so I sort of know a bit more about him than I do about McGregor. McGregor I know of because he's started twitter wars with WWE wrestlers. I know he's a heck of a fighter, and early on in this boxing match, he looked like he could hold his own. Unfortunately, fatigue is a very real thing, and Mayweather, an experienced boxer, knows how to use it to his advantage. But kudos to the two of them for getting people talking. My facebook feed is loaded with people discussing the outcome, some disappointed that McGregor walked away with the L, while others - myself included - have an "I told you so" attitude for Mayweather's victory. As I said, I don't know much about boxing, but I do know that there is more to it than just punching your opponent in the face. It's a very nuanced sport, and I firmly believe that a guy who is specifically trained in boxing, a la Floyd Mayweather, will always beat a fighter who is inexperienced in that environment. I'm sure McGregor is a heck of a fighter in the UFC, but boxing is not his element. Still, taking it to nine rounds wasn't a bad showing whatsoever.

I don't really have a point here. I'm actually working on something for a project and just needed some filler, so I thought I'd use what I was doing at the time as a resource for content. Speaking of things I'm working on, have you checked out the all new Voice Overs by ThinkSoJoE website? I finally got around to setting it up. Plus it works great on mobile phones! Actually, THAT was the point of this post. That and I haven't posted in a while, so I thought I'd say hi.
