This is an excellent, non-condescending beginner's guide to what might be the biggest sporting event this year and also to the "bleak libertarian dystopia of sports" that is boxing. One thing this article doesn't mention is that this will be fight #5 in Mayweather's six-fight deal with Showtime, after which he has intimated he will retire.

Hard to believe he'll stay retired when he's making so much money per fight.

Thanks for the article -- I found the Grantland discussion enlightening too:
