ROACH: "I Think Floyd Needs To Be Humbled, and Manny Is the One To Do It"

Floyd Mayweather has expertly cultivated an image in the last seven, eight years, one which sees him as the only boxer who is known in the US outside of the cultists that are boxing fans. No, he's not as "known" as Ali was, or Tyson, but for boxing circa 2015, Mayweather is quite the public figure. Now, the percentage of people who have a rooting interest for him, or against him, I can't know. But by an informal poll, I think I'm confident in saying that there will be just as many, or maybe more, folks who will let loose to the heavens with...

A Night at the Fights: Collective Amnesia

The purchase is non-refundable, non-transferrable and the end of any discussion. Perhaps one of the advantages of the major, team oriented sports not just in the United States but the rest of globe as well is the fact that even the most wretched stink bomb of an overmatched game takes at least more than a few minutes to materialize. Whether it's touchdowns, goals, fast breaks, hat tricks, test batting averages or home runs, not much of them seal and return our investment in a matter of seconds. It's not always down to factors such as age and...

Destiny Played Role Reversal With the Careers of David Reid & Floyd Mayweather Jr.

There is a scene in “Rocky II” in which Rocky Balboa’s crusty old trainer, Mickey, tries to talk the retired heavyweight from Philadelphia out of attempting a comeback in a rematch against champion Apollo Creed. Demonstrating that Rocky’s left eye is too badly damaged for him to consider entering the ring against such a dangerous opponent, which could only end with Creed completing the demolition project he had so advanced in their previous slugfest, Mickey lands a couple of open-hand slaps to the left side of the plucky...
