Editorial: YouTuber Jake Paul & ex-UFC champ Tyron Woodley prove that the only punchline is prizefighting its…

Bloody Elbow 01 September, 2021 - 03:20am

Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley didn’t do anything to impress fans of boxing or MMA. But sports themselves shouldn’t escape criticism.

For reasons only Youtube’s algorithm knows, I started with Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless. The talking points were the usual checklist of things you’d say about something you only heard about rather than studied. Sharpe and Bayless mentioned the decline of boxing, how MMA gives its fans – “unlike boxing” – the fights they want, and whether or not Paul was a legit boxer.

It’s easy to scoff at analysis that doesn’t feel serious, but then this wasn’t a serious fight, so I didn’t feel the need to parse through the verbal rubble. Woodley and Paul exchanged the kind of moments you’d expect out of two fighters who don’t box professionally. Woodley did Woodley things, landing occasional strikes, and then turning into a Medusa victim soon after. Paul did Paul things, showing functional technique and acumen, but not the kind of assertiveness and pace you’d see out of a real boxer.

None of this is a sarcastic knock on their abilities as fighters. Woodley’s legacy was built on wrestling, and the way his punching power was built into the helix of MMA’s wide range of win solutions. Paul’s legacy was built on... social media stuff? It’s not their fault we never got to see something like Juan Manual Marquez’ counter combinations, Pernell Whitaker’s foot movement, or Larry Holmes’ calibrated jab. Of course, nobody expected any of that either. But the fact that there were expectations at all between two men with a total of five pro boxing matches is still its own expectation deadpool.

The talking heads are wrong, of course. Paul is not a legitimate boxer. It’s possible he could aspire to that, but fighting non-boxers is obviously not the path of any serious or self-respecting boxer. As for MMA, no, it has not given fans the fights they want to see. When the UFC fans wanted Francis Ngannou versus Jon Jones, Dana White complained about the money Ngannou was asking for—and presented Derrick Lewis vs. Ciryl Gane as the “true” heirs. That’s not hyperbole. How else are you supposed to read their UFC 265 promo?

Ah yes, the old “our champ doesn’t want to fight” style of promotion. Best practices! https://t.co/v8BZpXqS70

As for the ‘decline of boxing.’ It depends on what’s being insinuated. If we’re strictly talking about the best matchups, the decline doesn’t read that dramatically. But if we’re talking about a sport in its final throes, that’s somewhat accurate. Culturally, we’re far removed from the days when free programs could be offered to kids as part of an outreach program, like the Police Athletic League. “Professional boxing has basically left New York,” noted the head of Gleason’s Boxing Gym in response to the rise of the boutique boxing gyms, and decline of the classic fight clubs.

Boxing’s decline is about more than just larger overhead costs for promoting fights and higher insurance rates. It’s also about the physical cost of its raw brutality—the same reason fewer kids are playing youth football. Boxing is filled with a lot of hard stories. There’s Aaron Pryor’s childhood and addictions. And there’s Emmanuel Augustus: everyone’s favorite journeyman who ended up homeless at one point. That was always the allure of boxing: how something as simple as a set of rules and a set of gloves inside a ring could be the path out of socio-economic hell.

Woodley and Paul exist on the other end of that spectrum. They found each other in the boxing ring, and it was just a big dumb coincidence when you think about it. Nothing connects the two (well, other than bad music & Ben Askren).

But, perhaps it’s not a coincidence that the two sports continue to collide. Both forms of pugilism have their own problems, and those problems continue to mount. That’s typically how desperation is created. Except where before prizefighting could represent the necessity of running away from desperation, now prizefighting can represent the privilege of running towards it.

Jake Paul Unretires From Boxing One Day After Retiring

Cam Newton followed Mac Jones along the sideline, holding his right hand up, waiting for the rookie quarterback to slap it after the No. 15 overall pick threw a touchdown in a preseason game Sunday night.

Newton may as well have been congratulating Jones for taking his job.

Newton, the 2015 NFL MVP, headlines the list of players now seeking a new team. He was 7-8 as a starter last season.

"He started at a much higher point than what he did last year, so definitely moving in the right direction," Belichick said of Newton on Monday.

A day later, he was moving out of Patriot Way.

Newton is not vaccinated and recently missed practice time because of COVID-19 protocols. It’s unknown whether that factored into New England’s decision to let him go.

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer said vaccination status was a consideration in their roster decisions.

"Everyone was considered. That was part of the production, let’s start talking about this and also, ‘Is he vaccinated or not?’ Can I say that that was a decision-maker? It was certainly in consideration," Meyer said.

Meyer pointed to defensive end Josh Allen missing one week because of protocols. Allen, who is not vaccinated, was activated from the COVID-19 list Monday.

"Well, Josh Allen’s never had (COVID)," Meyer said. "He’s not played in two weeks. So he’s never had COVID. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that, but he’s never had COVID. So that’s pretty punitive."

The Eagles released wide receiver Travis Fulgham, who had an excellent five-game stretch last season before disappearing from the offense. Veteran running back Jordan Howard also was cut by Philadelphia.

Baltimore released quarterback Trace McSorley, leaving Tyler Huntley as the backup to Lamar Jackson. Carolina cut quarterback Will Grier, a third-round pick in 2019. The Panthers are going with Sam Darnold and P.J. Walker as their quarterbacks, for now.

The Falcons kept backup quarterbacks Josh Rosen and Feleipe Franks. Rosen, a former first-round pick by Arizona, survived the cuts one week after signing with Atlanta and playing in only one preseason game.

The Browns, a legitimate title contender after so many miserable seasons, surprisingly released wide receiver KhaDarel Hodge, had a solid preseason, catching two touchdown passes in the past two games. He’s also been a valuable special teamer. However, he fell behind Donovan Peoples-Jones, Rashard Higgins and rookie Anthony Schwartz on the depth chart as the No. 3 behind Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr.

Cleveland also kept defensive tackle Malik McDowell, a former second-round pick by Seattle whose career once seemed over following an ATV accident and two arrests in 2017.

The Chiefs placed offensive lineman Kyle Long, who came out of retirement only to break his tibia at the start of camp, on the physically-unable-to-perform list.

The Detroit Lions left themselves without a kicker, releasing Randy Bullock and Zane Gonzalez.

Tennessee cut wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick, a fourth-round pick. The Titans traded up 15 spots to No. 109, swapping their fifth-round pick and seventh-rounder for the receiver, who struggled with dropped passes.

The 49ers cut several veterans, including running back Wayne Gallman, receiver Travis Benjamin, safety Ha Ha Clinton Dix, cornerback Dontae Johnson and tight ends Jordan Matthews and MyCole Pruitt.

The Raiders cut speedy receiver John Brown after signing him earlier this offseason to replace the departed Nelson Agholor. Brown had $3.24 million guaranteed on the one-year deal but fell behind Henry Ruggs III, Bryan Edwards and Zay Jones on the depth chart at outside receiver and was cut.

The Bengals released a pair of 2020 Week 1 starters: guard Michael Jordan and defensive tackle Mike Daniels.

Several teams made trades to reach the roster limit.

The Chiefs traded offensive lineman Yasir Durant to the Patriots for a seventh-round pick in the 2022.

The Eagles dealt offensive lineman Matt Pryor and a seventh-round pick in 2022 to the Colts for a sixth-rounder.

The Lions got wide receiver Trinity Benson and a 2023 sixth-round pick from Denver for fifth- and seventh-round draft picks in 2022.

The Niners traded linebacker Jonas Griffith to Denver for a sixth-round pick. The deal also includes a swap of seventh-rounders.

Some teams still hadn't announced their roster moves a couple hours after the deadline.
