Professional boxing nestles so perfectly into the climes of Las Vegas and Atlantic City it’s astounding. The most slippery, shady and shadowy sport on earth fits its adopted surroundings… like a glove.
Boxing had an unprecedented shot at redemption into legitimacy last Saturday night, and then, like counter-punching clockwork, a story of conspiracy rises from under the ring:

Like Manny Pacquiao‘s forced fighting style on Saturday, this too may be a reach. Floyd Mayweather looked like the winner, and was unofficially dubbed so throughout the round by the HBO/Showtime team of announcers.
Yet, this off-the-table argument puts two things on the table: A Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch (if you’re into middle-aged boxing rivalries) and the one thing America loves when she doesn’t get her way — a juicy conspiracy theory.
