Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: Evil Triumphs … Again

Posted by Anthony L. Hall


As the inquisitive, mischievous son of a preacher man, I was always testing my Daddy’s faith. Never more so than when I asked, with angelic sincerity, why God allows evil people to triumph over good people. He had no real answer for me back then, and I doubt he’d have one for me today.

Therefore, I’m hardly surprised that God did not answer my prayer for the good Pacquiao to triumph over the evil Mayweather in this fight:

Floyd Mayweather outboxed and outmaneuvered Manny Pacquiao to claim a unanimous points victory in the most lucrative boxing match in history Saturday, taking his unblemished professional record to 48-0 and cementing his place as one of the greatest fighters of all time.

‘I was a smart fighter, I outboxed him,’ said Mayweather, shaking off boos from the crowd which was unimpressed with his defensive style.

Of course, one can hardly blame so many in the arena for booing. After all, they paid a veritable fortune for what amounted to watching these fighters play a chess match.

Except that, by definition, the outcome of everything in the gambling mecca of the world is a crapshoot. Not to mention that these same suckers will be front and center for the next “fight of the century.”
