Chicken De La Mayweather

May 7, 2012

Following what was arguably the biggest win of his career, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. STILL refuses to step into the ring with Manny Pacquiao.  Despite an impressive decision over Miguel Cotto Saturday, told the LA Times a Mayweather/Pacquiao fight “is not going to happen.” Mayweather also added, “I don’t have to fight if I don’t want to.”

Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s toughest opponent: 80-year-old Larry Merchant

September 19, 2011

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is an ass clown. After spending his entire career ducking quality fighters in general, and Manny Pacquiao in particular, the boxer finally found someone he was comfortable taking on. HBO’s 80-year-old boxing announcer, Larry Merchant.

Mayweather Jr. won Saturday night’s controversial fight against Victor Ortiz with an amazingly cheap (but arguably legal) shot. The fight was stopped in the 4th round following a head butt by Ortiz. After the stoppage, Ortiz came up to apologize to Mayweather, literally hugging and kissing him. After the bell rang to resume action, Ortiz tried to hug Mayweather Jr. again. He responded by knocking Ortiz’s ass out. The shot came so quickly that the referee wasn’t even looking. He literally never saw the shot that knocked Ortiz out. It was one of the most controversial ending to a major fight in years.

In the post-fight interview, Merchant asks Mayweather Jr. about the controversial ending. Mayweather rightly points out that fighters need to be ready “at all times.” Besides, the fight was only stopped because of poor sportsmanship by Ortiz. Mayweather then abruptly breaks off the interview telling Merchant, “You never give me a fair shake.”

The interview digresses from there with Mayweather Jr. screaming that HBO should fire Merchant. It climaxes with Merchant yelling, “If I was 50 years younger I’d kick your ass!”

 

 

FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. CONTINUES HIS WAR WITH VEGAS SECURITY GUARDS

December 29, 2010

 

IF ONLY FLOYD WERE AS TOUGH ON MANNY PACQUIAO AS HE IS WTH SECURITY GUARDS

At least this time there weren’t any punches thrown.

Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. had yet another run-in with a Las Vegas security guard earlier this month. Unfortunately for him, the entire incident was caught on tape. That tape was recently purchased by TMZ.com which aired it online.

In the tape, TMZ describes Mayweather as unleasing a “nuclear verbal attack” on his subdivision’s security guard. The hapless guard asks Mayweather for his ID as he pulls up to a security gate. Mayweather responds with a clasically profane “do-you-know-who-I-am?”

Complete audio.

“DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?”

FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR.: CAREER BEST MUG SHOT

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a already a convicted woman beater and known tax cheat. Now he’s been accused of domestic abuse against the mother of three of his children. Mayweather was also charged with grand larceny for taking the woman’s iPhone.

Kevin Iole, one of the country’s most respected boxing writers, wrote a column about Mayweather entitled “Living on the Edge.” In that column, Iole asks a simple question. “Why?”

Mayweather’s own father has always maintained that Floyd Jr. is going to end up broke and in prison. Floyd Mayweather Sr. is one of the most respected trainers in boxing.

To add to the insanity, rapper 50 Cent just Tweeted that Mayweather Jr. is now getting MARRIED!

50 Cent then posted a photo of the future Mrs. Mayweather.

FLOYD “NO MONEY” MAYWEATHER JR. GETS EVICTED FROM VEGAS OFFICE SPACE

August 2, 2010

FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR.

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s marketing company has been evicted from his Las Vegas business office for failure to pay rent according to the New York Post. Mayweather is five months behind in his rent and owes the landlord a reported $63,000.

Mayweather has a reported net worth of over $90 million (not counting tax troubles.) He earned more than $22 million in his last fight versus Sugar Shane Mosely.

ARUM TAUNTS MAYWEATHER JR.

July 15, 2010

Old-time promoter Bob Arum has inserted a countdown clock on boxing champion Manny Pacquiao’s website. He is hoping that the gimmick will goad Floyd Mayweather Jr. into finally accepting a fight with Pacquiao. There is a Saturday deadline for Mayweather to accept the fight.

Good luck with that.

MAYWEATHER JR. DOMINATES

May 2, 2010

Floyd Mayweather and Shane Mosley

Ringside observers called Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s unanimous decision over “Sugar” Shane Mosley Saturday a “masterful performance.”

Following a sluggish first two rounds, Mayweather dominated the fight against a quality opponent. The fight proves two things. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is as good a pound-for-pound fighter as anyone in the world. However, it also makes his continuous ducking of top flight fighters like Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto even more frustrating. The Mayweather/Mosley fight only took place after Mayweather backed out of an agreement to fight Pacquiao.

Mayweather Jr. remains undefeated in the ring. His chief rivals seem to be the IRS and the law. Mayweather’s bodyguard was recently arrested on attempted murder charges following a confrontation and shooting between the boxer and a man named Quincey Williams at a Las Vegas skating rink. Guns involved in the shooting were found in a search of Mayweather’s Las Vegas home and cars.

One other note from the fight, despite beating Mosley, Mayweather Jr. did not capture his WBA welterweight championship belt. That’s because despite making $22.5 million on the fight, Mayweather refused to pay the WBA their sanctioning fee. Mayweather is NOT a welterweight champion. Mosley is. Only in the screwed up world of boxing.

WILL FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. FINALLY AGREE TO FIGHT MANNY PACQUIAO??

CHICKEN DE LA MAYWEATHER

March 9, 2010

 

Boxer Manny Pacquiao this week told Yahoo! Sports what detractors of  Floyd Mayweather Jr. have long suspected. Pacquiao says Mayweather pulled out of their proposed megafight simply because Pretty Boy was afraid to fight him. Pacquiao insists the drug testing “controversy” over their fight was “bulls**t” and manufactured by Mayweather as a means of getting out of it.

THERE WON’T BE BLOOD: PACQUIAO/MAYWEATHER SUPERFIGHT MAY BE OFF

December 23, 2009

MANNY PACQUIAO: ON STEROIDS?

 

 TEAM MAYWEATHER: ON DRUGS?

The Mayweather camp is saying Manny Pacquiao is on steroids.

The Pacquiao camp is saying Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a coward.

Who knows? They may both be right. What IS known is that the proposed March Pacquiao/Mayweather megafight is in jeopardy. Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports broke the story that Mayweather’s management team made a last minute demand for drug testing Pacquiao. They want Pacquiao to submit to Olympic style drug testing which would includes blood drawing.

As Iole points out, there have never been any questions or suspicion of Manny Pacquiao using performance enhancing drugs during his career. He has passed every drug test ever administered by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Then, recently, Mayweather’s father floated the rumor that Pacquiao might be using steroids or other PED’s. Now, based solely on the allegations that they themselves started, the Mayweather camp is demanding the harshest drug testing ever administered to a boxer.

The Filipino boxer’s camp hit the roof. They say that Pacquiao will submit to any type of drug testing Mayweather wants, but only after the fight. Trainer Freddie Roach has said he will refuse to let blood be drawn from Pacquiao within 48 hours before the  fight. Promoter Bob Arum is accusing Mayweather of trying to bail out on the fight because he’s afraid of Pacquiao. Arum should know. As Mayweather’s former promoter he spent the better part of a decade ducking top flight competition for his fighter. According to the Iole article, Arum says,

“…the demand is “absolutely crazy,” done simply to harass Pacquiao, who is squeamish about needles, and is proof that Mayweather doesn’t really want the fight.”

In any event, the drug testing issue may be a dealbreaker. Arum told a Grand Rapids newspaper that the fight “is off.” The AP was also reporting that the fight is likely off. That led a sputtering Arum to call the LA Times with a denial saying the fight might still be on.
