it's a pretty crazy court case. oh legal system you are some kind of wonderful. >> all right, i'm being told that is one too many. anyway that's not the only crazy thing going on in the music world. >> the wu tang clan has a new album coming out but only one of us can buy it there is apparently only one copy and it is being kept in a moroccan vault until it is auctioned it the highest bidder. >> this is by czar. the wu tang desidded to release this album i don't know, as a work of art okay. so it's going to auction and this is true only one person can have it. now there are rumors it could go for as high as like $5 million. so my estimation say that is about $4,999,988.01 cent morse than it should be. actually, $5 million more if you have-- now the group gave exclusive details on the auction to forbes magazine which i guess makes sense since ghost fail
killah is a deputy editor at the magazine. all right. true. i'm not making this up okay. but even if i don't win the-- i have a computer. so i'm sure i will be able to listen to it like probably the day after or something. >> looks like this generation of wu tang fans will never be able to enjoy it according to forbes the album titled the wu once upon a time in scho lin can't legally be heard by the masses for 88 years? >> 88 years man so i will be an old old dirty bastard when this album comes out? >> [bleep] oh hey that reminded me 20 15rx it's been 88 years, i can fillly listen that eddie kajter album my grandfather bot in 1927. this is great. unbelievable. i just happen to have it here. oh here it is. i have been waiting 88 years for this thing. >> i just happen to have a gramophone right here.

a 60-40 split which means his cut without could be worth more than $120 million. >> man. i barely make that in a month. just kidding, it's cable it would take me $120 million years to make this that's right i make a dollar a year. >> this seems like a lot of excitement. i'm a little confused. i thought boxing was dead. so is boxing back? >> nbc streaming elite professional boxing to millions of sport fans on three network television in prime time. >> larry: nbc is making an effort to rejuvenate a sport that has gotten gotten choked out by mma. over the years boxing suffered from corruption lack of big stars apathy from fans it's a lot like nbc news if you think about it. >> now it's true that mayweather and pacquiao are about to cash in on a big day but overall boxing has been on a decline. purses are shrinking the audience is schridging and

you? >> i mean look, there is a lot of excitement about pacquiao and the pacquiao mayweather fight i get that but it almost seems like an aberration, does it feel like the sport is done if. >> the sport is-- wow how can i say. when you think about the situation they said i'm hearing rumors it 20 to $120 million the highest paid athlete on the planet. so either the sport is dying or just people just are freely spending their money to he is a boxing match. >> larry: it's not like the country t is the 1% is getting all the purses. how does it feel to you jackie, does it feel different. >> it's real different now. the fighters are different now. we were talking about that. the filers in our generation and i say ours i'm older than him, of course. but back in the heyday, in the '80s '90s fighter was fight anybody. the best needed to fight the best. because to be the best, you have to fight the best. so every good fighter wanted to file a good fighter to prove how good he was.
now they don't want to do that. >> larry: why is boxing, why do you think boxing feels old now? is it mmas that the only reason? >> no i mean i don't like mma. i don't like that. that is like a guy laying on the ground getting -- >> wait wait wait. >> 30 secretariesed guy has his balls in his eyes an -- >> the now when i was the flat boxing champion in 78y to 81y you were the flat boxing champion. >> of course you were. of course you were. no it's all good. >> no but i-- i just think boxing, people just forget about boxing and the science of boxing. boxing it's scientific. >> you're right. >> and it's great if you do it if you know how to do it. >> it almost seems civilized
