BOXING NEEDS SOON TO BE RELEASED FLOYD “MONEY” MAYWEATHERSan Francisco, CA- The past 57 days of Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s life has been spent in “Solitary Confinement” at the Clark County Jail in Las Vegas, NV, this the result of a Domestic Violence beef with the mother of two of his children. While I am of the opinion that the penalty did not fit the crime, meaning having Mayweather pick up litter as part of a “chain gang” under supervision off of Las Vegas streets a few hours a day before returning to his cell to me would have been a harsher form of punishment and ultimately more embarrassing. Instead Mayweather, the best fighter “pound for pound” in the world of boxing today is confined to a one-person cell for 23 hours a day.
LOVE HIM OR NOT, FLOYD IS THE BOSS!
There are many fans who dislike Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs) for being brash and his mocking opponents. But this professional since winning a Bronze in the 1996 Olympics has only come close to losing twice, one being when his hands hurt so bad he looked like he might bow out of a fight with Carlos Hernandez, while the other was his first fight with Jose Luis Castillo. There was a lot of heat on Mayweather after the first Castillo clash, but Floyd would silence the critics by clearly winning a rematch a few months later. Outside of that, Floyd has been flawless inside the squared circle.
EXPECT FLOYD TO BE “HUMBLED” WHETHER HE ADMITS IT OR NOT!
To call Floyd reckless at times in nightclubs, with ex-girlfriends, and pool halls as well, I think that while he might not admit it, Floyd doesn’t ever want to ever go back to jail. That being said, if Floyd can learn to curb his temper, he will have three or so more fights and retire undefeated. As for potential opponents, Floyd would lick Manny Pacquiao like a stamp and expose Saul Alvarez for being as green as guacamole. The only fighters that could possibly beat “Money” Mayweather is middleweight champ Sergio Martinez and top 154 lb. contender Erislandy Lara, for they are both, and while some of you may disagree with me regarding Martinez, but the size of these two men could put Floyd’s unblemished record in peril. In closing, welcome home Floyd!
