I just think so many more people are truly interested in a seeing Pac-PBF fight. Even where I work it is amazing all the regular non boxing fans that know and want to see this fight.
I think more people know who Mike Tyson is than they know who Mayweather AND Pacquiao are. I know a whole hell of a lot of older cats in the gym...cats who all tell me how much they love boxing, but don't watch it anymore...but as soon as they start talking about it, guess whose name they bring up first?
I guarantee you can probably walk up to a total stranger...some fool who looks like he's never seen a fight in his life....ask him if he knew who Manny Pacquiao was and his answer would likely be, "Who? Manny Peacock?" But ask that same guy if he knows who Mike Tyson is, and guess what his answer will be?
But hey, who knows if that guy would actually tune in to watch him fight.
That being said, I think there's a much better chance that he'd tune in to see Tyson fight than he would to see Manny Peacock fight.
I bet all it would take is for Tyson to get ripped again (he's looking in much better shape now), give a little scowl and declare that he's coming back to clean up the mess he left behind. Like a WWE event, Tyson comes back as the good guy.
And don't lie...you know you'll buy it...or at the very least, scramble to find a stream.
