He may no longer be making a hundred million dollars or more per fight, but Floyd Mayweather, now five years younger than his fifty-year-old self, had a quick payday on Sunday. Mayweather, who is fighting social media influencer Deji Olatunji, gave a boxing lesson before stopping his much larger opponent in the sixth round. Some questioned the judge’s stay, wondering if he had ended the case too soon. However, such questions lead to another question: How much punishment should a novice take from an ancient great man, even from old age?
The show, which took place at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena and was a small pay-per-view, was a one-sided affair from the start. The 25-year-old Olatunji was never a serious threat and certainly kept Mayweather from landing too many blows on the man. He still decided to close the show before the final bell. Mayweather hasn’t fought professionally since stopping UFC star Conor McGregor in the highly lucrative and popular 2017 bout, but has remained active in exhibition fights since his professional retirement.
