Not a “Ghost” of a chance with Mayweather: Ringside by Chris Cozzone Thirty-six-year-old Floyd “Money” Mayweather may yet grow old. But last night was not his time to do so. Needing just two rounds to expel the specters of rust and age, Mayweather proved the naysayers wrong, yet again, by defending his pound-for-pound crown and [...]

pacquiao, bradley arrive in vegas

mayweather-cotto: closer than the cards

Floyd “Money” Mayweather might’ve had the bigger payday, but $32M couldn’t buy rally a pro-Cotto crowd last night at the MGM Grand. Miguel Cotto might’ve lost his title, but bloodying Floyd and winning a full house that booed the decision just might entice the Powers-Dat-Be to think about another Pacquiao match-up.  Then again, Cotto did [...]

nishioka-marquez presser

With little ill will and drama between main eventers Rafael Marquez and Toshiaki Nishioka, today’s presser at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas might’ve been called the Johnny Tapia and Ricardo Mayorga show.
