Hard Knock Life

With a weak heavyweight class and rampant corruption, it's easy to see why boxing is losing so much ground to mixed martial arts. However, there are certain nights when you can still catch a glimpse of what made the sport popular: watching two world-class athletes try to give each other brain damage.

Various AMC Theatres will screen the title bout between Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. and "Sugar" Shane Mosley. The undefeated Mayweather is arguably the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in boxing history, but he's never faced a fighter with Mosley’s stopping power. Ultimately, Mosley is only one devastating left hook away from chalking up Mayweather's first professional loss.
