NOBODY CRYING ABOUT MAYWEATHER LOSS EXCEPT FLOYD!
San Francisco, CA- I admire people who can “flaunt” their financial or athletic prowess in a dignified manner. Floyd Mayweather, boxing’s highest paid star is neither dignified or classy. The manner in which he has treated Manny Pacquiao of late to me is indicative of the world’s richest boxer having a nasty mean streak.
DISRESPECTS FANS AS HE RIDICULES PACQUIAO
Look, I understand that Floyd could afford to lose $11.4 million, but you know his heart was pounding throughout the 43-8 game won by the upstart Seattle Seahawks who are coached by the great Pete Carroll, as they stomped Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in much the same manner Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) would hand Floyd his own head.
GOLOVKIN GETS 16TH STRAIGHT KNOCKOUT!
That mild mannered K2 Promotions head Tom Loeffler is like the Clark Kent of promoters. Quiet, seemingly unassertive, Loeffler has a true international superstar in Golvkin who smoked Ghana’s Osumanu Adama like a NYC blunt inside of seven complete rounds. He wants Martinez at 160 or Mayweather at 154. Neither man has the “stones” to step in with the WBA 160 lb. kingpin. GGG has three more fights set for 2014, all of which will be televised on HBO, the first being in April in New York City.
UNUSUAL “STAND UP” FUNERAL FOR SLAIN PUERTO RICAN BOXER
Last week, Christopher Riverawas shot to death in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Having recently looked into moving to the island to be closer to Francisco Valcarcel, WBO President and a female I fancy, I was blown away by the crime, corruption and disregard for human life on the island. In 2012, Hector Camacho, ex-champ in many weight classes, was gunned down sitting in a Coke dealers car. Now Rivera is the latest boxer to die violently in the land of Boriqua.
THEY STOOD HIM UP IN THE CORNER
Like some horror movie, the family had Christopher propped up in the corner of a makeshift boxing ring in a San Juan Community Center. Wearing glasses, a robe and gloves, I’ve seen boxers laid out in trunks and robe in a casket, but NEVER saw a dead fighter standing up vertically. He didn’t have a great record,
but you can’t take away from Christopher going out the way he wanted, standing in a boxing ring. He was shot and killed January 24.
MEXICAN BOXER DIES ESSENTIALLY IN RING!
Reportedly, Oscar Gonzalez was “Brain Dead” when he arrived at a Mexico City hospital Saturday night, this after being knocked out in the 10th and final round. Reports from the MD’s working on him say he is “Partially Brain Dead.” Said to be breathing on his own, his wife arrived in Mexico City and stated that on Monday, they will get everybody together and discuss the fighter’s medical future.
