Floyd Mayweather Jr
With the WBA Super Light Middleweight title on the line, this fight has the potential to be an instant classic, and it all starts here.
Locally, the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez (out until after the All-Star break) came in at No. 9 and the Mets’ Johan Santana (out for the season) came in at No. 13. Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter (out until after the All-Star break) is No. 19.
Floyd Mayweather fought as if he had never left the ring, coming back from a year’s absence Saturday night to win a unanimous 12-round decision over Robert Guerrero in their welterweight title fight.
Guerrero believes he is the fighter who will be the first to beat Mayweather, and he’s eager to earn both the recognition and the money that would come with such a win.
Guerrero was arrested after declaring an empty – but unlicensed – .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol while trying to fly to Las Vegas, Port Authority police said.
Alex Rodriguez may not be the most popular guy in MLB circles. But according to Forbes, the Yankees slugger got the last laugh — at the bank.
Bradley simply does not have the skills to stay with Pacquiao, even if he is only at 75 or 80 percent of what he once brought into the ring.
Turns out I could have saved you sixty bucks – seventy if you watched in HD. But then you would have missed an exquisite bout that belied the normally mundane yet masterful offerings from Floyd Mayweather, Jr., who came to bang against a naturally larger man.
Lost in the blinding kaleidoscope of recent New York sports is the fact that a big bout is taking place tomorrow night in Las Vegas. And while boxing has been relegated to the back alleys of the sports pages, there are several compelling themes to this fight.
“Do I regret what I said? Absolutely not,” Mayweather said Tuesday. “I stand by what I said, and I meant what I said.”
Unbeaten boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn’t a fan of Linsanity. UFC president Dana White? He’s not too keen on Mayweather.
The hottest team versus the hottest story. Linsanity is on its way to Miami.
Bigger than Shaq? Larger than LeBron? The Knicks as NBA champions? Nothing seems too Lin-possible now.
“Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian,” boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. tweeted Monday. “Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise.”
The Mayweather-Ortiz fight left Tony Paige shaking his head — as did a few of the sights and sounds of Las Vegas.
