LAS VEGAS, NV (July 23, 2015) — Unbeaten pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. made it three in a row when he was chosen as the Nevada Fighter of the Year once again by the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame. Mayweather also won the award in 2013 and 2014. The annual Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame induction gala will be held Saturday, August 8, at Caesars Palace. This year’s event will have special meaning to Mayweather, whose uncle, Roger, is being inducted into the Hall for his brilliant boxing career.

A number of the greatest stars in boxing history will attend the popular induction ceremony on Aug. 8 at Caesars Palace. Among the big names who have confirmed they will be in attendance are Lennox Lewis,Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Felix Trinidad, Marco Antonio Barrera, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad and Roger Mayweather.

The boxer known as “The Greatest,” Muhammad Ali, is also among the inductees.

Remaining Tickets for the August 8 induction ceremony are $300, $175 and $75 and are fully tax deductible as the NVBHOF is an IRS 501 (c)3 charity. They can be purchased online at the Hall’s website, nvbhof.com. Donations are also accepted at http://nvbhof.com.

The Nevada Fighter of the Year announcement was made by NVBHOF Founder and CEO Rich Marotta, who recognized Mayweather for wins over Manny Pacquiao and Marcos Maidana. Mayweather scored a convincing win over Maidana in a Sept. 13, 2014, rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He followed that with a brilliant performance in a wide win over Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015, in a bout that set all sorts of financial records.

“I appreciate the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame for selecting me as Fighter of the Year once again,” Floyd Mayweather said. “My uncle Roger is also being inducted into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame. He was a great fighter and is a fantastic trainer who doesn’t always receive the credit he deserves. It’s nice for him to be recognized by the NVBHOF for his role in boxing for so many years.”

Mayweather’s bout with Pacquiao was billed as “The Fight of the Century,” and smashed all financial records. Mayweather earned more than $200 million in purse money after setting a record by selling 4.4 million pay-per-views.

It also smashed the record for the largest paid gate, at $72.2 million. Mayweather’s 2013 bout in Las Vegas was the previous mark, at $20 million.

Mayweather, who has been involved in the three top-selling pay-per-view in boxing history, has the three largest gates in Nevada history as well as five of the top six.

He is 48-0 and heading into the final bout of his career on Sept. 12 in Las Vegas.

Marotta also announced that the NVBHOF will honor Layla McCarter as its women’s Fighter of the Year and Jarred Santos of the University of Nevada, Reno, as its amateur Fighter of the Year.

It will present its President’s Award to Mike Martino and its Humanitarian Award to Yank Barry.

The Hall was founded by Marotta, a noted boxing broadcaster. Its chief operating officer is Michelle Corrales-Lewis, whose late husband, Diego Corrales, was an inaugural inductee into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame.

I'm not surprised. Money May, The Money Team And the May Fam got "Sin City" on serious lockdown. They are running dat bytch. If the crooks that be change the nickname of the corrupted western U.S. city to "Money May City," I ain't hatin!' Holla!

"The best ever of all time in the world award presented by Floyd Mayweather goes to,,,,,,, envelope please,,,,,,,FLOYD MAAAAAYWEATHER! !!!!!! "

After putting on a boring abysmal display against Chino and then a clinching bore fest against Pac??? Yawn.


-stormcentre :

Pacquaio is getting sued by multiple people/organisations for fraud related to Nevda's MayPac show and also events related to not only it - but also the (still) missing MRI's, fraudulent NSAC paperwork, and possibly also his (questionable) and abysmal performance. Arum, again, releases several claims that conflict with the excuses PacRoach initially provided in relation to Pac's MayPac loss, fraud, writs, performance, and excuses. Floyd; A) Not only fights the guy everyone (arguably) said (because they thought he would lose?) he had to in order to believe he is the real deal. B) But also gets an award for (effectively) doing it, winning, and being a great strategic boxer in Nevada's eyes. Yet, some complain about and also hold Floyd responsible for a boring MayPac fight; even though Pac is the one not just fielding multiple writs over it and the associated fraud, but also the one that both; A) Hasn't (even now after all this time) substantiated the true nature, exact extent, and real origin of the "injury" associated with the NSAC and other frauds. B) Failed to deliver anywhere near what both he and his trainer crowed on about and said (promised?) with respect to it; all at a time when they seemingly knew (according to what PacRoachArum said, only, "after" the MayPac fight) Pac was actually unable to win. So either PacRoach seriously misled and lied to the public, or they committed fraud; hence the writs, lack of proof, and "inconsistent" claims. Floyd is the hopelessly doomed villain and evil wrongdoer though that's both responsible for a boring MayPac fight and also undeserving of the award. And none of this even considers how obvious it is, and has been selectively ignored, that Pac has been a serial PED user; as proven by admissions that both Roach and Arum have effectively released themselves in both public and the presence of Pacquaio. No hate, just the
Storm's "comments", facts, and an alternative perspective. Love it !!! :) :) :)

Who would have thunk it ? Ha, ha, ha !


-amayseng :

If Floyd is fighting only one last time I want to see the best out of him as he performed against Cotto and Canelo.... Not a boring pot shot clinching anti fighting performance GGG would bring the best out of him. Not Berto


-michigan400 :

Manny sucked a huge fart in that fight. Floyd still did "just enough" to cruise to an easy win without risking anything and looked downright timid and scared at times with a small, (allegedly) wounded fighter in front of him who was just KO's a couple fights ago. They both phoned it in for that fight and cashed out. Manny gets sued, Floyd gets an award. Life aint fair but there it is. Most everyone has moved on. Well,,,, almost everyone. :rolleyes:
