    What the fuck? Is that even legal? Morales must be close to 200lbs now. Not a fair fight!

    Nothing wrong with that. They’ll play
    Around in the ring. Entertain and raise
    Some money. Hopefully for a quality cause.

    If it was billed as a legit fight I'd agree. But this is a charity exhibition between two great (one former great) fighter. This is NOT like the Mayweather/McGregor fiasco at all.

    Sounds like a fun day out for all to be honest I'd happily take my kid

    Sounds like its just for fun and the money will go to support one of Mikey's gym mates that was shot and paralyzed in a drive by shooting a couple of weeks before the Spence fight. Got to respect that.

    It's just a charity sparring match, it's not a real fight. It's like Evander Holyfield vs Mitt Romney.

    Ok, well not exactly like that. But they clearly won't be out there to hurt each other in a charity event.

    If Mitt was in the UFC Goldberg would have said, “you know Floyd respects Mitt’s hands”.

    Romney vs McGregor could be competitive.

    Look at that awkward workrate. You think Maidana gave Floyd issues? Multiply that by Mitt.

    By close I hope u mean over... even when he was a welter he’d balloon up close to 180 out of camp.

    He’s not 20 within that, imo.,

    Mitt's shot placement is remarkable. That was really high level stuff.
