Was this a marketing ploy or are they just plain stupid?
What began as an innocent exhibition boxing bout between Floyd Mayweather and John Gotti III has now evolved into the biggest boxing news and drama of the week as the fight ended in a chaotic brawl between both camps. But hey, at least it isn’t Jake Paul topping the boxing rumors headlines!

I’ll start by saying don’t bother rewatching the contest; the most entertainment was undoubtedly provided following the referee’s decision to call it off. That said, can anyone answer why the ref stopped the fight?
I’m still confused, but the more I ponder, suspicion clouds my mind. It was almost like watching a Rocky movie; rewind the 10 seconds before it ended and evaluate the drama that ensued. I was anticipating one of the two to begin screaming, “Yo Adrian, I did it!”

There’s no better way to get your name out there than by creating drama in front of hundreds of thousands of people. Well, considering the abysmal marketing, maybe it was thousands, but you get my point.
Perhaps my judgment is wrong, but Mayweather’s relevancy has died down since his exhibition escapades, and John Gotti III, who is he exactly? Ohh yeah, the grandson of a crime kingpin – see my point?
Then again, maybe I’m wrong unless the backstage brawl participants had no idea of the staging. The fights continued backstage, wild sh*t.

Even Joseline Hernandez was arrested for scrapping with rapper Big Lex. I have no idea who either of these two are, but you go, girls – make yourself relevant for a few minutes.

As those interested in betting online know, it was a huge mismatch, and Floyd was toying with his food from the start. I still don’t understand the stoppage, but it is what it is. Either way, Gotti needed just half a brain cell to understand he was being outclassed and, if unscripted, shouldn’t have acted as he did.
Who knows where it’ll lead from here, but it looks like the late mafia boss John Gotti instilled a ‘don’t fu** with me’ mentality in his children because his sister, Nicolette, had some choice words for Mayweather’s daughter following the incident.
