July 29th, 2012 By Pedro FernandezDID FLOYD PISS SOMEBODY OFF?
San Francisco, CA- The best boxer in the world is being held in Clark County Jail in Las Vegas, NV, this after manning up to having a confrontation with the mother of his two children in their presence. While a good many people despise Floyd Mayweather Jr., there are those that cast aside their personal viewpoints and admit that he is the best boxer in the game today. Friday, actually Thursday night at midnight Las Vegas time, Floyd was scheduled to be released from jail after spending 57 days of a 90 day imposed sentence.
RELEASE DATE HAS BEEN PUSHED UP A WEEK!
Now I am being told that Mayweather, 35 years of age and 43-0, 26 KOs as a professional fighter, will be released on September 3, unless the judge in his case or the Clark County Probation Dept. get a hair up their ass and decide to add more time to his stint behind bars.
WHAT ABOUT HIS NEXT OPPONENT?
Although seemingly everybody from 140 to 160 lbs. wants to be part of the “Mayweather Lottery,” the most likely foe that could bring in the most money is Saul Alvarez, the Mexican-born WBC 154 lb. titleholder. The “big money” fight with Manny Pacquiao blew up in the face of Pacquiao and promoter Bob Arum when in the minds of many, Juan Manuel Marquez beat him last November. One of his trainers, Alex Ariza said the day after that, “Manny had been exposed.” Even if you throw out the Tim Bradley fight in June, Pacquiao has aged considerably as a boxer since December 2010 when talk of him and Mayweather fighting first surfaced.
MORE TO DO WITH ARUM THAN PACQUIAO?
MANNY’S NO GENIUS, BUT IS HE STUPID?
Pacquiao has to realize that the failure of making the Mayweather fight, as Alex Ariza has claimed, falls at the feet of Arum. If this is the case, Pacquiao should get himself a big law firm to try and determine if what Ariza says is true. If that turns out to be the case, Pacquiao could possibly net more money suing Arum than he could fighting and being embarrassed by Mayweather.
