Trash Talking

I had a chance to listen to the Floyd Mayweather vs Connor McGregor press conferences that took place in Los Angeles, Toronto, Brooklyn, and London, England last week.  Some of it was profane and in bad taste.   McGregor mentioned Mayweather’s tax problems with the I.R.S.   He called Mayweather a boy and  wanted him to dance.    However, Mayweather’s well documented domestic violence past was not called out or discussed.   Some of trash talk went beyond whose better and talked about race plus a homophobic slur was used.   The press conferences were vulgar and in poor taste and the fight itself will not be exciting.   I have said it is not a fight but a spectacle that will be long of hype and short on action.
