A highly trusted inference in life is that it is full of ups and downs, and they say perfection is merely a concept.

Boxing, being part of martial arts, has all the qualities that one daily greets – the conflict, the confrontation, the setback, and the counter.

50-1?! – The sensitive threat to Floyd Mayweather’s long-built perfect record in pro boxing

Fifty have tried and all fifty have failed. Mayweather, now officially retired, remains unbeaten, his record unhammered, and his code uncracked. After ‘Money’ fought Conor McGregor in 2017 and reached fifty professional wins, several times he took part in exhibitions.

Talking about being 50-1, here’s a throwback to the time Kevin Hart threatened ‘Pretty Boy’ Floyd.
