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!
