Crawford is going to have a field day after a few tentative rounds.

Its none of my business... But its plain to see that Mayweather has taken very good care of his parents, grandmother, uncles children babies mama's and entourage ..... Along with all of his buddies and cousins from his original neighbor hood. These guys are living in the lap of luxury relatively speaking and they don't sleep at the Big Boy Mansion or borrow the keys to one of the many Bugatti's collecting dust in one of the garages at his several retreats around the country. I've been told that the jet rides around the world and the strippers are freely provided for by the biggest benefactor in boxing.

Which is probably why he carries around so much cash.
My biggest question is ....
Does his entourage have entourage insurance for when their entourage days are over?
At what point does the gravy train end...

Surprisingly it may never end as some members of his entourage have their own businesses and investments in progress as well as Floyd having a few ventures in motion himself. What we do know is Floyd maintains a rather large extended family ... If he wants the continuity of their wellbeing to be substained well beyond his fighting years he should be taking a hard look at the cash he would make fighting Manny.

Yes, my thoughts exactly.

But after this weekend in Russia it seems anything goes.

Perhaps - dare I say it - as far as Rourke was concerned there was money and a dive involved.

Good stuff RG...

There is already a huge movement of folks right here in the US who are reaping the benefits of healthy eating... Folk are learning benefits to eating a diet of at least 40% raw organic veggies and fruit every day.....drinking warm lemon juice and tea while remaining generously hydrated and getting plenty of sleep.

Without even being a nutritional expert ...if someone follows those simple guidelines they can accomplish a miraculously positive change in health.

Not to mention that nearly all diseases that can be cured with a proper diet of basic foods, spices, herbs and non-aluminum baking soda. (Diseases as serious as diabetes and cancer)

Common stuff like ginger root, tumeric root, lemon, pepper, garlic and green tea have wide range of nutritional and medicinal uses.

I would love to see the monopoly of huge health care and drug companies go out of business. In my lifetime.

It would be impossible to know exactly what Money May pays to his pops and uncle and anybody else for the simple reason that he pays low and the payees lie high.

The truth is always hard to believe in the West. Just holla at people who get those pecs by dieting and "hard work and dedication."

Wow! The P-Islands have a whole lot of Yanks and Stanks, Europeans and Africans and Arabs strutting to the P-Islands with doubts, but they leave with shouts. And feeling marvelous that didn't end up being louts.

Just holla all the Amerkano G-I Joes, hoes and G-I Janes and Gay Billy Bobs and lesbian Shirley Lanes.
Janes.

There are places in the world that really has enchanted syet. I syet you not. It is what it is. Only fools and the fooled are in tears.

There are so many 60, 70, and 80 buffed-with-pecs dudes around that would put M-Rourke to shame. He ain't even at the top of the eye-candy game. I got uncles in their 60s, 70s and 80s that Westerners swear could not be older than 35-year-old to B-Hop's near 50.

A few months ago, I put some old muscles from YouTube up in this Universe. Holla!

Hey, anyone out there know what Floyd pays Uncle Roger and Papa Floyd? Holler if you care to, in the Forum section...

Good question Mike.

I would be interesting to conclusively know wouldn't it?

And yes, I have always though the same about the job interview situation - so agree with what you say there . . . . in fact, sometimes when/if - during the interview - if you ask about the remuneration it actually goes against you - like you shouldn't be concerned about that.

I could be wrong but . . . . I believe the reason for that is somewhat psychological, in that the hiring agency/organisation knows that they intend to marginalise you and/or subject you to work, responsibility and/or conditions that exceed your salary/rates.

"@Shadow Instead of working the mitts get sparring. Gerry slapping you on the head a few times isn't the best way to learn to keep your hands up.

Go to a gym and find a partner to go 5x2 with or 3x5 with and the first time you drop your hand and get clocked... You'll never make that same mistake twice trust me.

In sparring you shouldn't run so much like Algieri, we were taught by putting a hoop on the floor and each fighter sticking one foot in. You don't move the foot out of the hoop. If you spar and are moving around so much you're prone to blistering and that can affect your training in the long run a lot. Plus it's only sparring, you've got some big gloves on and a headguard so if you're covered up and neither of you are putting all your weight behind the punch no one should be getting hurt..

In the amateurs it's all about explosiveness, Algieri's style isn't going to work well. You have to explode onto your opponent, throw 6-8 punches through and around the guard and get out again. It's 3x3 so you've got to show some variety and that can only really be done going forward. If I were you and I wanted to win a title, I would throw Algieri out of my mind, focus on getting as much experience sparring as I can possibly get against short guys, tall guys, fast guys, guys who come forward non stop, guys who wait for you to come in, guys who are as fit as fleas and throw 100 punches without pause.

The amateurs, in England atleast, is a very tough sport. You have tens of thousands of young and hungry guys eager to prove they're the best in their division and they all put in hours of work day in day out.

Mortcola said something very insightful a few days ago, you've got to be smart to reach the top, but you've also got to have the courage to see it through to the end (cause that's where the casserole bakes). You're not going to be TBE immediately, you're going to get beaten up, you're going to get a bloody nose and a few swollen eyes but that's part of the apprenticeships. These are all hurdles everyone has to pass through to see whether or not they have what it takes to reach higher and higher up the ladder. It's not a sport for quitters or people who aren't willing to risk it all to win."


Good advice.

Particularly that I have bolded out or touched on below.

"In the amateurs it's all about explosiveness."

Yes it is, but also, anyone that can "explode" in a calculated and controlled manner that doesn't leave them meaningfully gassed in the Pros, also has a distinct advantage.

Most Pros get weary of doing that (too much) though, as they know there are (usually) quite a few rounds to go, where that energy expenditure may cost them dearly later.

The only way to be confident of your cardiovascular fitness enough so that you can engage in a shoot out, or what we used to call "kill time", at least 6 times in a 12 round fight, without fear you won't be able to recover by the time the next round arrives is by regularly sparring and practicing sustained and extremely hard anaerobic exercises - which is why I mentioned them to Randy in my above post.

There is no other way to condition the heart to deal with the heavy cardiovascular demands associated with "kill times", than with sustained anaerobic exercises.

Anyway, back to your above post.

The hoop idea is good.

We used to have a black/white canvass that was like a checkerboard, and you couldn't move outside of certain squares.

Another trick was to draw a certain cross hatched shape under the bag, and then always ensure you moved out of the sector your feet were in after you completed your combination; good defensive move.

I agree with your Algieri comments - forget him as someone to technically emulate and/or aspire to as far as traditional boxing goes - he is tough, but he makes many mistakes - like most kick-boxers that cross over for the greater purses involved in the toughest form of boxing.

Finally, you're right about how tough the amateurs can be in England.

"The amateurs, in England at least, is a very tough sport. You have tens of thousands of young and hungry guys eager to prove they're the best in their division and they all put in hours of work day in day out".

Take a look at a map of Russia/Ukraine and also the USA - theres a lot of land and people there, and the same principle applies - thousands, perhaps millions, of hungry guys/mouths all looking to prove they're the best.

Thing is, unlike the Pros, in the amateurs you have less say in who and how often you fight, and in some sense this makes it harder.

Cheers.

"Were you going to put up a video with this? Maybe I missed it? I do a lot of isometric exercises and gladly look to add some more to my repertoire.

I wish I knew years ago about training what I know about it now. I once got in shape by doing roadwork (which, I believe, is still irreplaceable), jumping rope, hitting the heavy bag and speed bag, by doing situps and sparring. Now, I train my guys with an array of exercises, focusing, of course, on aerobic training. I want my guys to be tireless.

Is there a video which accompanies your in-depth description and analysis?

-Randy G."


Hi Randy,

Not sure about the video, it was just a tip/offer to Shadow since he seemed interested in it.

You may want to look at sustained anaerobic exercises for your guys - (if they can handle it) that will ensure they're tireless much more than aerobic exercises.

If you need some (basic) examples - just ask.

Sam Watson is full of tsAH's syet. And it is not surprising since he rides on tsAH's balls. In the meantime, the dance still stalls.

And Money May doesn't want that work, because from the undefeated ranks, he will easy fall. He is just making up syet, because right now his back is against the wall.

Money May is not a baller, shot caller, he is a just a scary-arse name caller.

He mocks Da Manny with Hulkquez making him "bite dust." But getting some of Da Manny, Money May , he doesn't lust.

Those who he fools, he continues fooling. He doesn't want of any part of Da Manny schooling.

Quit believing everything that Money May shouts. He is scary of Da Manny, and being able to beat him, Money May's low hopes and ways are full with too many doubts.

It has always been tsAH holding up the dance. Not da BobFather. Besides, the Canadian Shadow for Da Manny has forever been kicking tsAH in the side to make it happen. Holla!

"Thanks for the info, Shadow, now you are not going to burst my bubble and say it won't happen, are you ? P.S. it would be nice to see you hitting the mitts with GGC !"

I honestly have no idea! I hope so. I would love to see it.

In fact, three years ago, I had it on top of my to-do/goal lists for 2012, to cover Mayweather-Pacquiao on May 5.

I went to Mayweather-Cotto and Pacquiao-Bradley instead, which was awesome, but it still left a bad taste in my mouth. So I don't get too excited before I see something happening.

I just read a ludicrous release from a former Top Rank VP trying to weasel into the blockbuster by offering $110 million to Mayweather. Oscar De La Hoya also said he would try to put it together.

So I guess from all these people coming out of the woodworks, there must be something going on. I'm tentatively optimistic, let me put it that way.

"My thoughts exactly, they aren't making money on him lately in my opinion so to break even, no make big money, it has to happen !"

They've already recouped their investment, Froggy. "Revenue" isn't the only metric of success in this venture; it may not even be the primary one. (And I can prove it; I've spoken to executives, financial analysts, leading sports marketing research companies and analysts about this contract specifically.)

You have to look at this more like an endorsement deal than a straight investment for cash returns type of deal.

Even if the ROI was (pragmatically) measured in revenue only, speaking from a financial standpoint exclusively, the structure of the deal is not much different than the terms Floyd fought under from Oscar to Cotto.

(And remember, the total buys for the four fights -- according to even the worst reports -- have been anywhere from 4.5-5m buys.)

HBO used to front the fight night guarantee ($32m), just like SHO does now.

During that six-fight stretch from 2007 to 2012, HBO paid Floyd almost $120 million in FIGHT NIGHT purses, monies to be recouped through PPV as subscriptions are tallied and come in.

The main difference is that CBS/SHO have committed to doing it for six fights, six fights which have been pre-approved with a set of names that include Danny Garcia and Amir Khan.

Floyd doesn't "have to" do anything to get the remaining $64 million he's guaranteed but live up to the aforementioned terms of the deal he signed, though they could, in theory, opt out, which would be beyond moronic. He'd just go to HBO and fight Canelo and Cotto.

Now as far as pressure goes, it could very well be that a) all sides know that time is running out, and b) that the broadcasters are very well aware that after Mayweather's contracts end they might not even need the market penetration of cable/satellite anymore.

The cable and satellite industry has had a nice, cushiony run doing absolutely nothing but capitalizing on infrastructure and distribution monopoly and charging broadcaster and content providers HALF.

"Found money," as Vinnie Mac calls it.

I suspect that's really what's going on.
