"You are one lucky dude. I'm surprised that your gums didn't get infected and that toxic pus and fungus didn't cause blood poisoning and holla at your brain. Many pugs, even kids -- under 21 -- have died because of blood poisoning initiated by a loose, infected tooth. Holla!"



Yep...It happened during the wild days of my tumultuous youth. I had money but no dental insurance. If I had the slightest bit of pain, odor, swelling or pus I would have sprinted.... Not walked to the nearest clinic.

Luckily the break occurred midway down the root and was never exposed to the open air... I don't know how but I knew intuitively it would heal.



No pain ...no fighting and no complications.... A year later there was no evidence the injury ever happened.



As an added bonus the tooth absorbed the shock of the blow and I didn't get hurt.



The guy I was fighting was a lot bigger and had expected the heavy blow to turn the tide of the battle we had been engaged in for a good part of the morning ... No hollering or historionics...... Just fisticuffs and an intense focus on emerging victorious.



Neighbors were awakening and pulling up a stoop to watch as they ate breakfast.

No PPV

and HBO wasn't required..



After he landed his best shot I just smiled and told him " hey this is fun isn't it " . and I meant it.



...at that point, he just stopped, looked at his watch and took off running.



I tried to peruse but had been partying for two days prior....after a few steps into my sprint I dropped to a knee being thoroughly exhausted. My body just gave out.

I crashed at my buds house around the corner and slept for two days.

I'm lucky big man ran....lol.



Floyd has a lot more serious concerns to worry about than potentially missing teeth.. T. Hauser wrote an article earlier about why fans shouldn't buy any more of Floyds PPV bouts. And why Warren Buffet didnt participate in Floyds ring exit. There is no way Espinoza is not feeling the heat.

"The cocnut-oil fried chicken & duck sounds awesome. I really am going to see if I can look up a recipe for it, though I realize yours is a Grannie Special.

I used to eat those Bean Pies on visits to Deer Lake, sitting around the table with Ali and his crew. I didn't think I'd like it, but I loved it from my first taste.

Still, your morning tea concoction does not sound too pleasing. Still, my curiosity is getting the best of me. What are the ingredients and how much of each goes into this elixir?

Oh, yeh, this is a boxing site, not a cooking site--that's over on the Martha Stewart Channel!

So, I am asking for this recipe in order to have it while I watch some DVR'd fights in the morning.

Another 9,000 posts, Radam! Keep 'em coming.

Since you are a city cat, I will give you the short cut.

Get a 16oz can of pure or organic coconut the with water the pulp. (In the provinces of the P-Islands, we use a real coconut freshly just picked from the tree.) Pour it a jug. Get a hand full of raspberry, dump them in the jug. Add an eighth spoon of cardamom power, maca power and red pepper flakes. Stick the concoction in a cold place or fridge over night.

Boil it for five minute or microwave for about three the next morning. Drinks up. And don't get punked if you burn a bit in the eyes, mouth and inside your body. Chew up and chow down the raspberry and coconut and red pepper flakes. BTW, if you cannot tolerate the bitter taste, you can a packet of stevia sugar or organic honey.

Plaque in your cranium, veins, eye socket, teeth, torso arteries and extremities are actually being desolved. And your blood flow is picking back up to the natural flow of 30,000 time+ a minute through your complete body. Your blood pressure eases down, your energy shoot up, your ding-a-ling gets hard for no reason. And your total blood cholesterol starts a kick-arse drop.

This one 57-year-old Yank who came to the P-Islands with a high total blood cholesterol of 240 is down to 160 in just a month of drinking that one concoction. Holla!

"Not really RG....it means nothing to me..... Its not that serious and we all know Floyd isn't perfect. Im simply Saying that so far I haven't seen any evidence about it or heard any reports. I'm sure something will leak the next few days.

Sugar Ray Leonard had a false front tooth that he inserted after the fight concluded... It comes with the territory and is a relatively common injury.

I was hit in the mouth during a fight once. The front tooth was bent back about 45 degrees, the tooth was still connected but broken at the root.
I kept pushing the tooth in place with my tongue and within a year it grew back into the root and became straight and firmly embedded.

Had me worried there for a while ...lol."

Lol...where is a tooth detective when you need one?

Floyds lip was swollen to about the same size or larger during the Cotto fight.. and listening to/watching to the 39 minute post fight conference was inconclusive.

So far no one has verified the injury .... I'm sure there will be a difinitive report coming soon.



If it does turn out to be true ... Marcos Maidana can take solace in the fact that he may have lost the fight but he can lay claim to being the man who knocked out one of Floyd's teeth.



If only he could frame it.

Make that to 44:00 and maybe beyond. Money May is clearly bothered by something that is going on in his grill. He has a new temporary lisp. Now some Fiddy'syet. Holla!

"Yeah it's been pretty big gossip. I watched the clip 20 times over and I'm sure it was not a tooth- Vaseline or saliva maybe, but not a tooth.



And of course, there was no evidence of it at the PFPC- he wasn't speaking differently of trying to hide his mouth.



Still, it was a peach of a shot. Respect to Floyd's chin."




Inattention blindness no doubt is stalking you. Money May's lip was swollen and he was talking out of the side of his mouth. Look at the following fight video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGSQigc3BYU starting at 40:52 up to about 42:00, Money May is clearly licking at and folding his lips at area of the missing tooth.



Don't let those bargining with reality of the actuality Money May-loving brains play an optical illusion on you. Because one of these days, somebody is going to ask Money May da haps, and he is going to say: "It comes with the territory, and that was not the first time. Holla

"It's been all over my face book page for days. It was a glob of Vaseline or snot.
Floyd has a poker face when it comes to taking punishment but who can hide the horror of suddenly losing a tooth...not too many.

Besides they weren't calling him Gabby at the post fight conference as he was still sporting the smile . if a tooth did come out it would have to be a molar."


It was a tooth from the front right -- one of the vampire teeth. Money May has seen an orthodontist. Did the "Facebook page" explain why Money May's top lip swelled four time it size? Holla at the afterfight interview of how largely swollen Money May's top lip is.

Boxers, footballers, basketballer and MMA/UFCers get teeth/tooth knocked out all the time and don't feel it or know until later because of adrenaline. That adrenaline in athletes give them a high tolerance for injuries and pain. (Back in the day, Sugar Shane Mosley even spoke about losing a tooth and chipping one before he kayoed "The Tijuana Tornado" Antonio Margarito.

The Commish could probably still remember how many teeth that Billy Collins Jr lost the night that he was "assaulted" by Luis Resto. And holla at the late, great Smokin' Joe Frazier's second fight with "Big" George Foreman. The great Smoke got four teeth knocked out.

Money May got a tooth knocked out -- plainly and simply. And the excess swelling of his top lip is not from a bee string or a cold sore bump. Money May fans just want to believe that his is perfect. But he will tell you that lost and loose teeth come with the territory, just as he told talking heads that Maidana was not the first fighter to cut him. Holla!

"Do promoters based in Europe play well together? Or do you guys have some of the same network/promoter BS that we do?"

There aren't such huge monopolies as there are in the US- rather, many smaller promotional companies, with relatively small/low profile stables compared to the likes of Top Rank or Golden Boy. The larger number of smaller promoters forces promotional companies to co-operate together to co-promote fights.

As for networks... I've never heard of it being an issue to a fight being made, nor even a point of discussion among fans in the way that Showtime or HBO are- in the UK at least, most every fight is shown on Sky/Boxnation.

I do miss those fights with Ali. Maybe he'll check in when he gets out of the slammer. I saw Robert Curtis dropped in for a few sentences over the weekend. It's been a long time since Real Talk made a comment.

I don't get up in anybody's and dey eight-eyed, fat-selp auntie's business. But on this "Special K" Kellgate, I think all fish have been eaten by Moby Dick. So, if anything, something is whale-ly. And the involved parties aren't even trying to be slick.



Have you ever seen the poop of a whale? That is one heckuva s*** that you don't wanna be in. Especially if you are either naive as heck, or a pencil neck. Wewe! Wewe! You don't become champ, and tell your downlow pal that he cannot no longer blow. And will not be a part of the show. Hehe!



Sorry! But yall know me. I'm down with O-P-P! And I will hide in plain sight, but not in the shade. And I know sometimes people are slow to call a spade a spade. It is going to always hurt in the end, when too darn hard that bed you've made.



It is dat old timey saying: Keep it greasy, so it can go and come out easy.



"Special K" got too darn special. I hoped that the powers that be around him would have done the dirty work and broke all the old shady DL ties around him. But they have apparently put all the pressure on him. And he almost lost his life.



Those in da loop, know da poop. So stand up, don't stoop. It is your thing. And the real real, you are going have to bring. The truth always eventually will spring. Sooner before later, like a lark, those of your past are going to always SING! It is your business anyway and every day what do outside the RING.



The Eyes of Europe will get a hold of the actuality of the reality faster than slower. Optical illusions are everywhere. But the truth, in time we will be able to share. Holla!

SPINKS BROTHERS MADE HISTORY TOGETHER, BUT THEY WERE DECIDEDLY DIFFERENT

When you think about it, the odds against two brothers each winning the heavyweight championship of the world have to be staggeringly high, almost Powerball lottery-winning high. The odds against it happening twice have to that much higher. While the combined heavyweight reigns of Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko lasted longer and almost certainly will gain both induction into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, the towering Ukrainians are merely the second set of siblings to pull off the improbable double-dip.

We had a bit of blue sky, some sunny rays breaking through a couple months back, scenes from a Klitschko-free heavyweight division.

That blue sky has hazed over some, as time has passed, interest has shifted, and the division has regressed back into its default status: buzz-free.

Jose Luis Castillo should've been awarded the decision over Floyd Mayweather when they fought the first time in 2002. So much so that HBO house/company judge Harold Lederman scored it 115-111 Castillo and only gave Mayweather four of the 12 rounds the fight went. Miguel Cotto, albeit it 10 years later, roughed him up and gave Mayweather one of the hardest fights of his stellar career, but Floyd earned in the ring the unanimous decision he was awarded by the judges.
