Floyd Provides, He Does Not Care

“Floyd cares for his children.” This is what someone said to me on social media as a partial defense for the otherwise questionable behavior of Floyd Mayweather outside of the boxing ring. It was an interesting point to make. Inarguably, Floyd’s children will never lack for food, shelter, or clothing. I would never say that Floyd does not love his children or show them affection. I assume he does. But are those things alone enough to say that Floyd truly “cares” for his children? I’m not so sure. Years ago, I watched an HBO...

“MONEY MAY” AND THE PROFITABLE POWER OF HATE

The power of love is a curious thing Make a one man weep, make another man sing Change a hawk to a little white dove More than a feeling, that’s the power of love “The Power of Love,” Huey Lewis, 1983 Lewis, front man for the News, the San Francisco-based rock group that had a string of hits in the 1980s, is correct. The power of love is indeed a curious thing. They say it makes the world go ’round, and those in its thrall know that to be the case, perhaps especially in those instances when their affection is unrequited and the...

Shoulder Statement From Pacquiao and Top Rank

JOINT STATEMENT FROM TEAM PACQUIAO AND TOP RANK During training, Manny Pacquiao suffered a right shoulder injury.

Lomachenko Outclasses Foe on #MayPac Undercard; PLus, LSC Wins

In the TV opener on PPV, Vasyl Lomachenko, the guy who went 396-1 as an amateur, took on Gamalier Rodriguez, with the WBO featherweight title held by Loma up for grabs. Vasyl was the superior man all the way through, and ended the affair in round nine. Down went the underdog from the force of two right hooks. Fifty seconds elapsed and the ref reached the count of ten. He coulda done twenty, as Gammy was no longer game. Rod is from Puerto Rico, while Loma, who many see as the man come two or three years, is from Ukraine. In the first, the...

When Bob Arum Did That Deal With Frank Sinatra

Bob Arum has been around awhile. 83 years, with 50 plus of them spent making deals, and most of those coming in boxing. We were in the media tent yesterday and "Elvis" walked by. Had a smoking woman on his arm, looked like Linda Thompson. Not sure if she knew Elvis is dead... I wondered if Bob liked Elvis. Nah, more of a Frank guy, he said. Did he hang with Frank? In fact, he said, he put together a promotion featuring Frank and fighters. Sol Kerzner, his pal, built Sun City in S. Africa, and Bob knew him and Mickey Rudin, Frank's lawyer....

Postfight Presser Report: Mayweather Is Boastful, Edgy, Defiant

At the postfight presser, held in the arena, with the principals in the ring, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao talked about their clash at the MGM, and both touched on what comes next for each. Pacman said thanks for coming and that he did his best, "but my best wasn't good enough." The loser, via UD12, said he didn't want to make any alibis because of what he went through in camp. "I thought I won but I have to review it when I go back to my hotel to see what's happening," he said. "I respect Floyd Mayweather, he's fast, he's a good...

The Superfight Without a Heart

The question often asked in the buildup to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was whether this richest of all prizefights could give a boost to boxing’s future by living up to the glories of its past. As May 2 approached, the anticipation reminded many of the 1980s, when the mega-million “superfights” got started with a series of bouts between the so-called Four Kings—Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns, and Marvin Hagler. Leonard and Hearns fought each other in two cliffhangers eight years apart; Hearns vaporized Duran with a...

AND STILL...Masterful Mayweather Bests Pacquiao Via UD12, In Sub-Classic Scrap

Maybe he's not the best ever, that's debateable, but he is a contemporary master. In the main event of the most important fight since 2002 and the biggest revenue maker of all time, Floyd Mayweather, born in Michigan, nicknamed "Money," drew harsh boos when he walked to the ring with a 47-0 mark. The white hatted Pacman came in with the hopes of nations on his shoulders, and a 57-5-2 mark. But you had to tip your cap to the victor, even if you don't care for his character or the character he plays; his mix of jabs, movement, potshot...

Why Mayweather Will Beat Pacquiao Tonight

It's been said here since Manny Pacquiao devastated Ricky Hatton in two rounds back in May of 2009 that we'll definitely see him and Floyd Mayweather fight before either retires. That happens tonight. It's also been said in this space that the fight will only be made once Mayweather thinks it's the right time for both business reasons and also when the in ring match-up best favors him, which apparently he thinks is tonight. And the thing I've probably harped on most was this: when the fight is over Mayweather will still be undefeated. If...
