Mayweather: I Was Handing $100 Million Check After The Fight

Boxers get paid their guarantees immediately after the fight. No direct deposits, but an actual check. At the post fight press conference Mayweather says he was handed a $100 million check. That is just the start, once all the PPV, merchandise, sponsorships, gate receipts, black market ticket sales and etc come in, Mayweather will probably clear over $200 million. Money doesn’t mean you are going to be liked or your past will be erased, but the facts are no matter what fans or media think of Mayweather, he is generating more money than any athlete has ever had. The interesting part is he is doing it while boxing in a very clinical style, but all the negative attention is just making him one of the richest athletes of all-time. Read More »

Mark Jackson: You Can’t Judge Mayweather As Boxer If You Bring Up DV Issues (Video)

I get what Mark Jackson was trying to say, he just turned into a mini-sermon — therefore confusing people. Floyd Mayweather’s status as an all-time great boxer somehow made its way into a conversation during the Warriors vs Grizzlies second round matchup. Jackson led the charge, and tried to explain that Mayweather the boxer and Mayweather the man, can’t be judged on the same scale. Pundits sometimes like to place Mayweather lower on the all-time pound-for-pound list because of his past domestic violence issues. Jackson believes that Mayweather the boxer should be judged strictly on his boxing prowess. His judgement as a man should come outside the ring. There are many in boxing and sports circles who agree with Jackson. Others feel they both go hand in hand, similar to how NBA and NFL players are judged as well. Take a listen. h.t Cauldron Read More »

During the game, Wizards Bradley Beal and John Wall both sustained injuries however an update was not available post game. “We missed a lot of open shots. Defensively we played well. Realistically we can’t score 30 points in the second half and win” – Carroll — Sammy Social-Hawks (@Sammy_Socialite) May 3, 2015 “The second half we settled for jumpers. We had some good looks. We will get more open looks if we drive and attack the rim more.” – Bud — Sammy Social-Hawks (@Sammy_Socialite) May 3, 2015 “I thought our bench was big for us” – Wizards head coach — Sammy Social-Hawks (@Sammy_Socialite) May 3, 2015 Read More »

5/3 CBS2 Sunday Evening Weather Headlines

By Mark McIntyre, CBS2 Meteorologist/Weather Producer Boy oh boy, what a fantastic weekend of weather it’s been! After abundant sunshine with more 70s earlier this afternoon, we’ll see a beautiful full moon tonight with clear skies and comfy temps dropping into the upper 40s & 50s in the Tri-State…58 is the forecast for NYC. Tomorrow will be even better, with sunshine and temps a few degrees higher. Expect thermometers in many spots to top 80 degrees – mainly interior NJ, lower Hudson Valley, and much of the 5 Boroughs. Coastal folks in CT, LI, and the NJ Shores will be much cooler due to ocean breezes. We’ll top off at 82 in NYC, and considering that we should be in the upper 60s, that’s not too bad at all! Tuesday will feature one last gasp of warmth ahead of a cold front that will bring P.M. thunderstorms. We’ll hit 80 before some late day rain & rumbles move through, and some storms could drop heavy rain and gusty winds. At this point not expecting severe, but be mindful that a few downpours are possible. We’ll clear out Wednesday morning and stay sunny through the end of the week with temps in the mid & upper 70s!
