No Holds Barred: John Perretti on Mayweather-Marquez, Klitschko-Arreola, Offensive Promoters, and More
We opened with a preview of the September 19 Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Juan Manuel Marquez fight. We worked in a preview of the September 26 heavyweight fight between WBC champ Vitali Klitschko and Chris Arreola. We commented on the latest series of bigoted, offensive, ignorant, and intentionally provocative remarks by promoters Bob Arum and Dana White. We explained how promoters in both boxing and mixed martial arts regularly utilize racism, nationalism, and homophobia to promote their events and make money for themselves. We discussed the issue of Juan Manual Marquez drinking his own urine, and how the Mayweather-Marquez fight has been built. We noted how what is happening in the combat sports is reflective of the overall decline of American civilization, and much more.
No one else will interweave such seasoned analyses of all these combat sports with these types of societal commentaries, so all thinking fight fans and combat sports aficionados will find it worthwhile to listen to our discussion and send in comments.
