Like Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey, the circus that passed through “Sin City” this weekend has folded up its tent and life under the Big Top is over. No more Carnival Barkers, no more Clowns, no more Bearded Lady. The boxing paparazzi that chose to forgoe a great night of televised HBO boxing from Carson, California in order to be a part of “The Greatest Show On Earth” will forever carry the taint of being just another shill who bought into the hype and sold themselves out to be a part of that charade. If the hair on the back of your neck is standing on end right now go ahead and assume I am directing that venom at you.

If you so-called boxing fans did likewise and purchased and watched that PPV Sideshow instead of watching real World Championship boxing on HBO then you too are a target of my poisonous sting as well.

That would be the open media workout for the true Biggest Fight of 2017 tabbed “Supremacy”. That would feature Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez in a Middleweight Championship showdown that has “Barnburner” written all over it.
