Floyd Mayweather Jr
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.

“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.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is just rude, crude, and, if he doesn’t fight Manny Pacquiao, a coward.
Athletes often lament that we in the media focus on the negative. There is truth to that, but it would be easier to resist the leap to Page Six if their colleagues didn’t oblige so often. Enter David Tyree, who has the city in a tizzy after his assertions about gay marriage.
