People know Las Vegas for many things, including luxury hotels, incredible shopping experiences, and its F1 circuit. But chief among its notable offerings is its thriving casino culture. So big is this business that it serves as a tourist attraction. It even served as the foundation for most online casino sites today. Take the example of the architecture in most online casino sites in Hungary – it looks like what you would find if you entered a Vegas casino. And as more sites embrace virtual reality, we can expect more online casino game settings to match what Vegas-inspired movies have depicted.
Aside from the casino scene, Vegas is also known as an ideal location for shows. One that has people’s attention is the Floyd Mayweather vs. John Gotti III showdown that will happen during the Super Bowl weekend. We explain why this match is one for the ages and what fans can expect:
Breaking Down the June 11th Floyd Mayweather vs. John Gotti III Match
Ever since Mayweather retired from professional boxing, many people have urged him to participate in exhibitions. And as one not to shy away from a good fight, he has been a good sport. Such was the case during the June 11th match where he was set to fight John Gotti III. As the match progressed, it was clear that Mayweather had the upper hand. Once again, he was about to show the world how he had retired with an unbeaten 50-0 record.
However, the match had more to it than met the eye. The two fighters had been talking ill of each other before entering the ring. As such, the minute they started the fight, they did not waste time trying to bring each other down. On one side, Mayweather was busy teasing Gotti. And on the other, Gotti was resorting to tactics like headlocking which did not bode well with the referee. The ref finally tired of the abusive language and ill fighting tactics and stopped the fight during the sixth round.
Most fighters would have walked away after this call, but Gotti was not one to throw in the towel. He proceeded to try and throw some punches at his opponent. As one would expect, this outburst resulted in outrage from Mayweather's team. They headed into the ring, followed by people from Gotti's team, and the ring was soon full of brawling people. Gotti did not have it easy and found himself pinned to the corner as Mayweather slipped away. Fans soon had to leave as the police got involved to clear the mess.
What to Expect from the Super Bowl Match
All eyes were on Mayweather and Gotti following their fight. Mayweather quickly added that his ability to put on a show made him the go-to for promoters. On the other hand, Gotti III made it clear that the fight had not stopped him and that he would mark Mayweather as his lifetime enemy. Gotti III got suspended for a while but has since been cleared for the match. The two fighters are still not on the best terms as things stand. As such, they will put their best foot forward in trying to beat each other. Let's consider their fighting styles and how this will come into play in their next match:
For as long as he has been in the ring, fans have always been wowed by Mayweather's unique fighting style. Many define it as Orthodox, having never seen anyone come close to such a stance. His whole strategy depends on reducing his vulnerability while taking advantage of counterattacking chances. He pivots, ducks, rolls his shoulders, and adapts to his opponent's fighting style, enabling him to maintain control during the game. Even when a fighter is good at something, Mayweather can exploit it as a weakness.

Gotti's ties to the Mafia made him a hit immediately he hit the ring. People expected him to put on a good show, and he did not disappoint as he went ahead and knocked out Johnny Adams and Eddie Haws. But does he have what it takes to beat Mayweather? Gotti prides himself in maintaining a strict diet and workout routine that helps him stay ready for any fight. In addition to this, he relies on trainers who help him perfect his techniques, which include submission and grappling. By incorporating yoga, ju-jitsu, and other movements in his regimen, he has conditioned his body enough to take on even stronger and faster opponents.
Many people already hope to invest their money in the fight’s wagers. So, does Gotti III have a winning chance? He can have some moments during the match, as in the previous one. However, he is unlikely to match Mayweather’s prowess. After all, Mayweather is known for letting his opponents have an easy time during the first few rounds, as he did in the 11th June match. He will likely have the advantage after the first few rounds and will dominate the match. That said, this will be an entertaining show that will bring together fans from across the globe.
