IBR on The Cruelest Sport

“If the value of a product or service is ultimately determined by what it fetches on the market, then Victor Ortiz’ scalp is worth $212,000. This is what Riverside, California’s Josesito Lopez was reportedly paid for facing Juanacatlan, Mexico’s Saul Alvarez Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Lopez was given the Alvarez fight for collecting Ortiz’ scalp over nine vicious rounds in June. He earned every penny against the popular Alvarez, who delivered a merciless beating en route to a 5th-round TKO.”
