It tried to address the issue by making two bizarre announcements in the the summer of 2016: 1) Helmets became no longer compulsory in amateur boxing.2) Even professional boxers could take part in the Rio Olympics The decisions were essentially boxing announcing ‘let us bring back the good old blood’ While the timing of it meant not a lot of pro boxers could take part in Olympics this was a clear indicator of what boxing’s policy will be for the future A policy that is guaranteed to win in 2017 —polarising borderline populist but by-and-large problematic Boxing needed to consolidate its blood loving trash-talk-loving audience who were shifting their allegiance to UFC And what better way to do it than beat the mixed martial arts champion a trash-talking testosterone oozing beast who has been winning the heart of combat sport lovers So after initial refusals from Mayweather’s side the idea of a bout started picking up speed with traditional boxing investors flooding in to support Suddenly it wasn’t just McGregor and UFC trying to take a big bite into the large cash pie that is professional boxing This was the big spenders of boxing trying to ensure their sport remains on top Overly hype the event and then beat McGregor Bring the UFC audience to boxing beat the sport and stake claim to being the greatest combat sport Mayweather was more than happy to oblige He will probably not have faced a less seasoned opponent all his life This is after all McGregor’s debut bout What an easy way to overtake Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record Not to forget make a lot of money in the process Honestly what are the odds of this even being close Yes a lot of us did think Phelps would race a shark and a lot of people would tune in to watch Mayweather v McGregor under the impression that the battle will be close But you do not win 49 professional bouts for nothing Add to that the fact that McGregor a master at using his entire body to pin the opponent will not have his lower body to rely on to knock out the opponent McGregor is going to get killed The build up tour has been in tune with the overall narrative Both the boxers have resorted to gimmicks that will give the masculinity-demanding fans a turn on Both called each other a ‘pussy’ (multiple times); ‘bi**h’ was used like a conjunction and there was McGregor’s ‘monkey’ chant Sexism racism. you name it they gave it And the fans apparently love it If early predictions are to be believed the bout could generate the biggest pay-per-view event of all time with Mayweather set to make around 100 million dollars from the battle Sadly the best thing boxing has to offer in 2017 will be a battle between a seasoned boxer looking for one last fat pay cheque and a Mixed Martial Arts champions who has never boxed Maybe boxing should take a deep breath and introspect While entertainment packaging and promotion are essential components for modern day sports to survive nothing can beat quality inside the ring But it could really backfire as well The Mayweather v McGregor battle has the potential to be dull Mayweather is known for his defensive approach and he would be happy to dodge punches and end it at that What if the bout becomes a dull match with no knockouts That will hardly do the world of boxing any good will it Their champion struggling to take down MMA’s McGregor Ali or Leonard did not became popular for what they did outside the ring And hence what boxing really needs is to focus on identifying stars at an early stage and make the sport a sport again Pacquiao and Mayweather are at the end of their careers and boxing really has no one to take over the baton from them How things have changed since French theorist Roland Barthes wrote about boxing in his ‘Mythologies’: In his famous essay on amateur wrestling Barthes says “The logical conclusion of the contest does not interest the wrestling-fan while on the contrary a boxing-match always implies a science of the future” While this might have been true in the 1950s boxing has been to reduced to a hyped up spectacle with results getting more and more predictable Something the philosopher believed amateur wrestling was Will the Mayweather v McGregor bout bring about a change in fortunes for boxing Will it help eat into UFC’s audience Or is boxing dying Islamabad:Pakistan on Tuesday said it had apprised the European Union

Simon Harmer echoed India’s batting coach Sanjay Bangar’s views by saying that Test match wickets are nowadays prepared to get results "I don’t think the wickets are prepared to last five full days The reason behind the preparation of the wickets is to get a result "When the Indian team comes to South Africa we are going to prepare wickets that suit our bowlers So them playing one seamer it’s clear to see what sort of wicket they arepreparing" said Harmer after day one of the third and penultimate Test in Nagpur on Wednesday Harmer picked up 4 for 78 and in tandem with fast bowler Morne Morkel (3-35) helped South Africa pack off India for a paltry first innings score of 215 in 782 oversIn reply the visitors were 11 for two in 9 overs South Africa’s Simon Harmer celebrates after taking the wicket of India’s Amit Mishra during play on the first day of the third Test AFP Bangar had also defended the wicket prepared for the contest by saying that it was a result-oriented wicket which was the same for both teams Harmer said he took some time before getting the right pace to bowl which he said was a bit faster than normal "I found it difficult to adjust to the right pace I think I was a bit slow at the beginning of my spell I wouldn’t say I was struggling to adjust to lines or lengths I think pace on this wicket was vital At the beginning of my spell I was just sort of trying to find my feet "Obviously you can’t bowl one pace the whole time But I felt that the quicker pace there was a bit more bite off the wicket You saw a few balls spit As a spinner that is what you are looking for" said the off spinner who got rid of Cheteshwar Pujara Rohit Sharma Wriddhiman Saha and Amit Mishra "When you bowl too slowly a batsman can adjust and go back easily Ideally you want a batsman to commit to a shot and I felt the best way to do that was to bowl a quicker pace" he explained further Harmer said the first Test pitch at Mohali was of similar nature to this one here at the VCA Stadium in Jamtha "Mohali was much of the same and at the end of the day there are three innings left It is going to be the same for our batters and for both teams throughout the Test match It is challenging conditions but that’s what playing in the sub-continent is all about" He said he came to know that he would play after being left out of the second rained out Test at Bengaluru on Sunday "On Sunday it was still three days away You wanted to give it some time So Russell (Domingo) chatted to me late yesterday afternoon and told me that I was playing" He explained that the key to bowling here is not to try too hard for success "As a spinner bowling here the seamers are going to reverse a bit The spinners will come into the game I think the biggest thing is not trying too hard and I think there were stages today when I did and that’s when I started leaking runs But its just about finding a rhythm a line and length that works and the pace "It’s about keeping the batsmen thinking the whole time with field placements your speed I think that’s the biggest thing" PTIon looked more threatening as they attacked more from the right with Poojary sending dangerous crosses
