So the Manny Pacquiao fight against Jeff Horn is on ESPN at 9pm Eastern. I’ve spent enough time covering this fight to some detail in previous additions of Boxing TL;DR so I wont now. But I’m just going to ask you, are you going to tune in? If you’ve ever been one to soapbox on the downturn of boxing or ever been one to ask more of boxing, I saw what are you waiting for now? Now’s your chance, do me a favor and tune in at least. It’s your blue chip fighter on your blue chip network, c’mon American sports fan this one’s on a platter for you. Mangia!

Side note: My next hardcore punk band I’ve dreamed up is going to be called Effective Aggression.
