It was billed as ‘The Fight of the Century’ and by any measure you could choose – money, rankings, talent, anticipation – it was. But was it worth $100 to watch it on high definition television and $6000 (the average ticket price) to watch it in the MGM Grand arena?
Host Laragh Widdess does some hyping of her own, before discussing the fight and its repercussions in detail with former TLV1 sports presenter and Israel’s legendary sportscaster Ari Louis. Did the fight actually damage boxing’s standing in the world, and do Israelis care?
