    He's the GOAT for a reason. Haters just don't seem to realize being "great" has to do with so much more than winning fights.

    I'm all in favor of the fighters taking home a much higher portion of the revenues (as are I'm sure the vast majority of fans) but the Ali act is not a positive thing for fight fans in its entirety. It will ultimately spread the fighters out and decrease top level matchups.

    Ali in his prime.

    Good thing for Conor. The US Congress already does nothing

    ...I'm guessing this part of the act won't be brought up by Conor if he decides to go there.

    As i hater i will say he is doing it only for himself tbh. Ali Act doesn't work (pretty much dead) well for low ranked or mid ranked boxers and is perfect for stars and superstars, so for few people, like Conor.
    MMA is different sport (nobody really cares about losses) and fighters should look for different solutions, not try to copy soultion from corrupted sport like boxing.

    Very interesting if true
    But funny thing is, TAA is rarely enforced in Boxing & pretty much mouth service.
