This week on BoredWrestlingFan Radio, our attention shifts to the world of boxing as we discuss the spectacle that was Floyd Mayweather, Jr. vs. Conor McGregor. We discuss betting odds, PPV buyrates, how much each fighter made, the appeal of the fight compared to Mayweather’s previous bout, and more. We also talk about SummerSlam, discussing the outcomes of the PPV, and possible causes of the near-empty arena for the opening pre-show match. We even delve into RAW and SmackDown, because (gasp!) we actually watched the shows!

Big Cass has surgery, Lo Ki walks out, Rusev creates speculation, the beach ball is the hottest free agent in wrestling, and more! Tune in!
