What do you get the man who made $800,000 USD in a sub-minute losing effort to Fedor? A booking against Ray Mercer in a boxing match. Naturally, Monte Cox is promoting this fight in Atlantic City. Wow.
Side discussion: So, how well do MMA fighter agents perform as MMA promoters? The track record says… well…
Taking this fight is going to do for Tim Sylvia’s career what driving drunk and spouting anti-Jew comments to a cop did for Mel Gibson’s. After some time has passed people might forget about it, but there’s still absolutely nothing good that can come out of it.
For the record, Mercer hasn’t boxed in the States since 2005.
