Floyd Jr. and the WWE

Speaking of Floyd Mayweather Jr., the WWE and credibility, look no further than the following videos to see what I'm talking about. I love the sport of boxing, passionately and consider myself a boxing purist. When I see this type of crap going on it literally breaks my heart. Now I have never been in the position to have to turn down $20,000,000 dollars, (the amount may or may not be true) and I can't honestly say I wouldn't do the same thing, but there is something sacrilegious about the supposed (I say supposed because I disagree) pound for pound champ selling out boxing's credibility and his own legacy for any amount of money.
