Floyd Mayweather vs. Clubber Lang: Totally Worth the Money (VIDEO)

If you care about boxing at all ... or know anyone that does ... the odds are they've already paid their money to HBO's PPV and are planning their evening around making sure they are in front of a screen at 9pm tonight. If you don't care about boxing, well then, you seriously don't know what you are missing because this match up between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Victor Ortiz is as much about the characters in the ring as it is about what happens in the ring.

Still, if it was up to me, I would much rather watch Mayweather duke it out with Clubber Lang. Remember him? The mohawk and feather wearing character played my Mr. T in Rocky III.

Yes, Mayweather is a six time world champion, undefeated in 41 fights (25 of which were knockouts) but he also is very much the villain. And everyone knows a villain is way more fun to watch ... it gives us someone to root against.

Yesterday when Mayweather and Ortiz weighed in, Mayweather went right up to Ortiz and got in his face. Maybe he was trying to build up excitement for the fight or maybe he was trying to get his own adrenaline pumping, but whatever it was, Mayweather is definitely the Clubber Lang of the pair. See for yourself.

Now check out Clubber Lang, from Rocky III, set to the get-your-heart-pumping song, "Eye of the Tiger." Clubber Lang is as mean as they get — he is the one to root against. I can't help but compare him to Mayweather.

In one of my favorite scenes a sportscaster asks Clubber Lang what his prediction is for the outcome of a fight, to which Lang replies, "Prediction? Pain." Gotta love Mr. T!

 

Who do you think would win in a match up between Clubber Lang and Floyd Mayweather Jr.?
