Mayweather on his bicycle. Starting this fight with much more movement. Nice hook by Mayweather on the move.
Maidana works inside for first time, misses big shot, FM ties...moments later, on ropes, Mayweather loses balance and slips.
Is it me or Mayweather vibe is totally different from the first fight?
OK, it got straightened out.
Mayweather, as promised, dressed in python skin.
Let's go Maidana vs Mayweather. Who's winning this fight?
Was that really all one song????
Holyfield, Tyson, Lewis all ringside. Could make some fights with those three.
Did this guy steal Ravi Shankar's sitar?
Baldomir, De La Hoya, Hatton, Ortiz, Cotto, Guerrero, Alvarez, Maidana. I think that's all of them. Can still do it from memory.
G. Hernandez, Manfredy, Rios, Juuko, Gerena, Vargas, Corrales, C. Hernandez, Chavez, Castillo, Castillo, Sosa, N'Dou, Gatti, Judah...
Bunting. Is. For. Losers.
Robert Hoyle gets every Floyd Mayweather fight assignment for the rest of Mayweather's career after that joke.
Correction: Julie Lederman (115-113, Bey), Robert Hoyle (119-109 Bey), Adelaide Byrd (115-113, Vazquez) score SD for BEY.
The three judges might be the only people in the world with the attention span to score that fight. But they're paid to.
Going to the cards after a lightweight title snoozefest.
Welp, I don't know how you can give Mickey Bey that "fight."
Presumably Floyd Mayweather Sr., Roger Mayweather & Rafael Garcia in corner but we'll see. RM hasn't had corner role since Cotto.
Interesting...Leonard Ellerbe won't be in the corner, a decision steeped in his absences from gym to tend to business.
I have Vazquez 3-2 through 5....which means there's a clear argument for Bey.
Vazquez's three losses are to Saul "Canelo" Alvarez twice (including in Vazquez's pro debut -- some start!) and Timothy Bradley.
Vazquez now bleeding from the nose. Bey caught him with something obviously, though I have him down 2-1 through 3.
Looks like a nice clash of heads opened the cut.
De La Rosa, gasping and wheezing, makes it through the 10th and should win this decision.
If this were a 12, Angulo would get him. Forty seconds left.
Angulo tags and hurts DLR in the ninth.
The PPV card is under way with Alfredo Angulo, 22-4 (18) vs. James De La Rosa, 22-2 (13). Angulo earning $500K to DLR's $43K.
Shoulda put this fight on the PPV show.
Next fight is Showtime-televised, Humberto Soto, 64-8 (35), vs. John Molina Jr., 27-4 (22), 10 rds, jr. welters.
Tabiti scores TKO of Grummet in the sixth to go to 8-0 (8).
Tabiti doing some crippling body work. Grummet cut over right eye, it appears.
Tabiti may be a puncher but he hasn't moved Grummet through 4 of a scheduled 6. Like hitting a fire hydrant.
Mayweather will wear "Python Black" trunks. Maidana in red.
UM is starting to look John L-esque...minus the goofiness but just on the field...terrible product
Memo to Nuss: No more 7-10 step drops for Gardner. Hand it to Green until it stops working. I mean-- it's Miami of OH.

Man I'm unpacking my stuff and 3 of my Kitchen Knives are gone??? Ya coulda asked I would have happily have em to u...Sheesh!!
Just saw the Roddy White tweets from this evening.The NFL may need to just cancel this weekend's games and hold league wide therapy session
OK enough of this doom and gloom in sports. I'm watching Frankie Beverly perform tonight. Good day y'all
First base open and they pitch to a guy (JD) who has destroyed them all year? Mistake.
Friday night Miracle
Koval Lane on a Friday afternoon. Ugh. May as well drive the Strip.
Maidana ballooned up after the first fight's weigh-in. He's on point here.
Mayweather weighs 146 1/2.
Maidana at 146.
Maidana to the scale first. It's a 147 and 154 pound title fight, so has to make the lighter weight.
Mayweather enters in green and white. He'll earn $32M base, to Maidana's $3M.
Maidana enters the arena in national colors of Argentina.
WBC super bantam title weights: Santa Cruz 121, Roman 122.
If, as a grown-up, I happened to find a man who prosecuted my father for spanking me, I'd beat the living hell out of him.
