Floyd Mayweather Jr. does not plan on taking another 16-month vacation from the boxing ring, like he did after easily out-pointing Shane Mosley in May 2010. Instead, Mayweather, who knocked out Victor Ortiz on Sept. 17, will make a relatively hasty return: May 5 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Basketball scores
Mayweather’s opponent has not been determined but Ellerbe said, “We’re looking to make the biggest fight possible and everyone knows what that fight is, the little fella.” Ellerbe was, of course, referring to Manny Pacquiao. The welterweight champions and the top two pound-for-pound fighters in the world have been on a collision course for years. NFL scores
Floyd’s biggest fight though, may be his upcoming legal fights for verbally threatening people and domestic assault against his former girlfriend and mother of his child.
Floyd is off message and not in touch with his reality. He needs a crisis management and marketing team . The boxing promotional team should be replaced with people that can deal with the public court of scrutiny. Floyd should be out rehabilitating his image in the media and his community. He should delay his fight schedule to make sure he is not going to trade in his boxing gloves and shorts for a prison uniform.
Floyd was acquitted last week of misdemeanor harassment charges alleging that he had threatened the lives of two security guards in the gated community in Las Vegas where he lives. Floyd will now have to stand trial for the domestic assault and battery charges in December.
That trial is five months before his fight. Floyd better prepare for the fight of his life.
