Sweet science proves it can go the distance
On last Friday night's Off the Ball, we spoke to legendary boxing writer and 'Newark Star-Ledger' columnist Jerry Izenberg about Mayweather-Pacquiao and whether this was boxing's last big night.
"No," said Izenberg firmly. His feeling is that boxing would not only endure but inspire because, as a spectacle, it remained so simple. Three men in the ring together. Two with gloves on, squaring off. The other officiating. The rules were self-evident.
"Even a Martian could understand it," Izenberg said.
