LAS VEGAS – LAS VEGAS – OK, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor – enough now.

Saturday night’s culmination of a two-month promotional spectacle wasn’t a sham or a total farce, wasn’t an embarrassment to boxing or the worst thing to befall combat sports. It was actually quite good at times, really good at others. But, please, enough now.

Thank you, you gave us something to talk about during these quiet days of summer swelter and filled a hole in the sporting calendar. In return, we forked over our money so you could each pocket nine figures to spend on whatever your heart chooses.
