If you watched the May 2nd fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, you
probably feel slighted for spending your hard-earned money on watching two men in their mid-
thirties hug for twelve rounds. You may have also felt that the world is more than a little unfair
when the monetary results of the fight became public yesterday. Despite the fact that two men
generated nearly $600 million dollars in one day according to the Business Insider1, I’m here to
tell you why, at least through my experience, the fight wasn’t the monumental waste of time that
most of the general population thinks it was.
