“Do you agree to this fight?” Musk wrote with a tag directed on the Kremlin’s Twitter account.

Talk a couple of generational struggle we didn’t know we would have liked, however now this is without doubt one of the most intriguing struggle promotions of all time as Putin utterly ranges a sovereign nation of 40 million folks. But, is that this a struggle that favors Musk?
Let’s check out the intangibles right here:
• Putin’s (allegedly) a judo blackbelt who (allegedly) co-authored the e book “Judo: History, Theory, Practice”
• Putin’s pushing 70, however let’s take into accout he’s (allegedly) wrestled bears and is a dominant hockey participant who as soon as put up eight targets in a single sport
• Musk would have the attain benefit — he’s 6’2 and is (allegedly) skilled within the artwork of Jiu-Jitsu
• While the age, peak, weight, and attain favor Musk, the playing specialists consider the cagey veteran Putin nonetheless has the clear benefit on this struggle for Ukraine due to his Judo background and his need to place the Soviet Union again collectively one piece of land and one struggle towards a billionaire electrical automobile firm founder at a time.
Putin like -500, he’s ex KGB so he can struggle.
Now, let’s speak pay-per-view buys. Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao’s 2017 “Fight of the Century” made $410 million on 4.6 million PPVs. Billionaires preventing over management of an enormous jap European nation would clearly set PPV numbers not like something the world has seen earlier than.
Could we see 300 million PPVs out of those two? Just consider the hype for this one. Weed-smoking Musk vs. Putin on the weigh-in can be intense. One man who has ordered 1000’s of deaths vs. a billionaire who as soon as launched an auto-tuned tribute track to Harambe, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla who was brutally murdered in 2016.
You’re rattling proper I’m all in on this struggle.
Get on it, Don King. Yes, he’s nonetheless alive and he’s 90 and has to have one ultimate struggle promotion left within the tank.
