Fight Opinion Radio: Mauro Ranallo on the art & science of promoting a big Floyd Mayweather fight

By Zach Arnold | May 6, 2014

Print Friendly and PDF

How Mauro Ranallo managed to do play-by-play of Floyd Mayweather’s fight with Marcos Maidana while live-tweeting at the same time, I’ll never know. But the man knows the science behind Showtime’s production of a Floyd Mayweather fight and it’s always an education for our listeners.

How does the atmosphere of a Floyd Mayweather fight compare to some of the bigger MMA fights in history, such as Fedor Emelianenko vs. Mirko Cro Cop? Mauro has seen it all and shares his candid thoughts on what the differences are.

Plus Jeff Thaler (@whaledog) and I share our thoughts on the ceiling hovering over Jon Jones as a big business draw. He’s a one-of-a-kind talent with a one-of-a-kind personality that isn’t magnetic in attracting fan support. Jim Ross recently had some words of business advice for the UFC and we have our response to that advice. More shows does not equal more stars.
