In an exclusive video with FightHype (smh @ it being so exclusive they’ve blocked all embedding of their video), Floyd Mayweather has CALLED OUT Manny Pacquiao to sign the contract and commit to a fight on May 5th. Obviously, The Money Team wants Pacman to take the drug test and I’m sure vice versa for Pacman’s crew as well. I got into boxing about a year, maybe two years ago pretty much when all the Pacman vs Mayweather drama started to stir up and as a amateur boxing fan, I can speak on the behalf of EVERYONE, that this fight NEEDS to happen! Sign the contract!
Give it up to HBO for continuing to provide the best entertainment on TV! Clap for them! Their newest project is a drama series called Da Brick which will tell a story that is inspired by Mike Tyson’s youth. To make things even better, it’s being produced and directed by Spike Lee, Doug Ellin (Entourage creator), and John Ridley. The show will take place in Newark, New Jersey aka Brick City aka Da Brick. I’m imagining Entourage meets The Wire meets Hard Knocks. It should be a good one!

Iron Mike Tyson takes the stage in Canastota, New York to accept his induction into the Boxing Hall of Fame. He has a few loss of words during his induction speech but his public speaking has never been that great. He was never known for words anyways, he was always more a man of his fists.
Manny Pacquiao has been no stranger to receiving his own customized Nike kicks and this summer is no different except Nike will be rolling out a complete collection for Pacman. The championship boxer has an upcoming fight on May 7th and to lead up to the bout, Pacman will be seen training in the following three Pacman inspired colored models – Nike Zoom Huarache Trainer Lowm Nike Trainer 1.3 Max, and Nike Ring Boot for him to actually to wear in the ring during his fights.
Mike Tyson went Vegan – who would have thought? Last Chance for Animals got him to even throw himself on a massive West Hollywood billboard kissing a bird next to the words “Vegan” and “Love Animals, Don’t Eat Them.” Good advice Mike but I’ll pass and keep on eating my london broil! Hit the jump for the full billboard image.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather is about his money! As a man who lives his life of a gamble (winning fights or not), it’s to no surprise that Mayweather takes a lot of his cash winnings and throws it right back into the Vegas Sports Betting circulation to turn around and win more cash. Almost all of his recent Twitter posts have been pictures of his winning tickets from winning $40,000 on the Portland Trailblazers to counting on Derrick Rose to win you $37,272.75 to even the Cleveland Cavaliers winning him $47,619.05 and others.
Have you ever seen anyone so happy to be getting processed for their arrest?! Floyd Money Mayweather clearly doesn’t have a care in the world!

DJ Steve Porter and ESPN’s Sportsnation just blessed the world with Press Hop 2 complete with cameos from LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Tiger Woods, Brett Favre, Ron Artest, Randy Moss, Allen Iverson, Deion Sanders, Mike Tyson, and more. This one was pretty funny but nothing DJ Steve Porter makes will EVER top the original Press Hop.
Floyd Mayweather Sr. went on air and called Manny Pacquiao a straight bitch! I’m sure Manny Pacquiao could give two shits about Mayweather Sr. but I thought this could be used as some quality instigation material towards PacMan from Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s team. Will this fight ever happen? Probably not…
