Shaq doesn’t often miss on investments these days, and now he says he’s planning on throwing some dough at the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. According to O’Neal, bare knuckle fighting is the future of boxing.

“These are the greatest and toughest athletes in the world,” O’Neal said.
Well, he’s probably not wrong, as this league is like the scene from Django that we all look away from.
Shaq is always ahead of the investment game, so if he’s getting involved, then it’ll probably work. The guy invested tens of millions into 17 Auntie Annes, 150 car washes, and 155 5 Guys restaurants, so it all seems to be working out for the big guy.
Maybe Shaq is the guy I should call about the prices at 5 Guys? Anyways, Bare Knuckle fights probably don’t last very long, which is perfect for our younger generations. When you have the attention span of a goldfish, there’s nothing better than an event that takes less time than charging an iPhone.
We hope this works out so we can talk sports instead of COVID or anything else that our media becomes infatuated with that day. We’d also love to see him get in the ring.
Can you imagine?
