Knuckle Up #419: MMA Slow Week welcomes a Mayweather-Maidana dissection. With a chainsaw.

In Round #419 EUGENE S. ROBINSON [with the "S" standing for "Soul Leaving Body"], KNUCKLE UP host and the world's foremost authority on a whole raft of real nastiness, rips into the Matrix-esque shandeh (Yiddish word, look it up) that was Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. the Argentine Marcos Maidana and emerges still a fan of boxing but not so much a fan of how it's being whored to a Hollywood-esque narrative that's 100-percent sucker-based. Add this to his early stage pre-fight picks for May 10th's UFC FIGHT NIGHT, his breakdown of how and why MATT BROWN is not too sexy for his shirt and the still burbling baseline panic on JONES v. GUS and you have a show's worth of paranoia and paranoia-inducing anxiety. The kind Mom used to make!

Eugene S. Robinson host of Knuckle Up and author of Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking [Harper Collins], A LONG SLOW SCREW [Robotic Boot] and a play called THE INIMITABLE SOUNDS OF LOVE; A THREESOME IN FOUR ACTS [Southern] also sings for a band called OXBOW and appeared in Bill Cosby's Leonard Part 6, a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, and had his own TV show in Germany called? "The Eugene Robinson Show."
