This bout is lalently Showtime's way of boasting about the snatching of Money May from HBO. Ratings will be straight-up MAD and through the roof. Money May and his dad, Pops Joy May are going to spark this weekend thing up. K-9 and Sugar Shay bout won't even be remembered. They are just the prelims to Money May's Showtime! Holla!

-SouthPaul :

Prepare yourselves to hear Floyd to eventually start bad mouthing HBO. Love the way this guy has maneuvered himself into the bigger portion of the boxing pie, however, he also can be ridiculously ungrateful at times. Sort of sick behavior. None of these prize fighters will ever convince or fool this boxing fan they do this stuff all by themselves. Got news for you, Mr Prize Fighter ...whole lotta' folks make you the man you are, right down to the last credit closing out your telecast. Holla'!

-Radam G :

YUP! I hear it now: "H-B-O wanna cheat me for my loyal service to 'em. I made H-B-O 24/7! That humbuggery bullsh*t organization -- dat'z what H-B-O means -- don't wanna up da pay. Don't 'em bytches kno' dat I'm Money May. Everything is about me. I'm da fighter who ev'ybody tunes in to see. "Hey I'm tired of speakin' ratt [sic] now! I'm gonna let y'all speak to my poetic pops. Hey, pops como'va'here!" (Pops Joy May): "We put H-B-O ta' rest! Dey didn't realize dat we're da best. Dey didn't wanna put no mo' golden eggs in da Maywel'tah's [sic] nest. So we flyin' ta' uh-nother conquest. It's Maywel'tah SHOWTIME! H-B-O ain't nuffin' now but slime!" There is no weather like a Mayweather. FOUL and STORMY! Holla!
