If you missed Manny Pacquiao‘s latest performance on Saturday night, well, you didn’t miss much. The boxing megastar defended his WBO welterweight title by unanimous decision against “Sugar” Shane Mosley, in a bout that was marked by a disappointing lack of action. It’s not suprising that this CBS Sports highlight reel starts at the end of the 10th round. The only notable moments before that were a knockdown that Pacquiao scored in the 3rd frame — which seemed to convince Mosley to quit engaging altogether — and a trip/shove by Mosley earlier in the tenth that the referee decided to rule a knockdown, just to keep things interesting. Nevertheless, two of the judges ignored the ref’s bad call and gave every round to Pacquiao.
As we told y’all on Friday, the Pacquaio/Mosley match was Gus Johnson’s final play-by-play gig for Showtime, and he made sure to trot out his diverse range of knowledge. At the 0:52 mark: “He kinda throws, in the MMA world, it’s a version of the ‘Superman’ punch.” GuJo‘s just keeping the chops sharp until the UFC comes calling, I guess.
After every mechanical victory by Pacquiao over an outmatched opponent, our thoughts always turn to Floyd Mayweather Jr., and what he might be up to right now. Well, get a load of this…
Last Thursday, Money Mayweather was charged with misdemeanor harassment for making threats against two security guards who ticketed a couple of Mayweather’s cars that were parked outside his Las Vegas mansion back in October. According to TMZ:
Mayweather allegedly threatened the guards — who patrol the boxer’s upscale housing community — after he noticed the citations, claiming, “My homies have guns. If you want me to call them, they’d come over here and take care of you.”…According to the complaint, Floyd added, “These are my f**king cars. Don’t touch my f**king cars.”
The weird part? This is a totally separate incident from that time Floyd repeatedly poked a security guard in the face for ticketing his illegally parked vehicles, which happened a month later.
