So a thing that’s been in the news recently is the ongoing exchange of sick burns between boxer “Fuckboy” Floyd Mayweather and mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey.

Earlier this week, Oakland police’s records department said that the investigation into a possible fight between a member of Floyd Mayweather’s entourage and a woman at a Golden State Warriors playoff game was still open, and sent along a paltry, almost completely redacted incident report. So I asked the department’s… »
More than two months ago, TMZ reported that a member of Floyd Mayweather’s crew got into a fight with a woman at a Golden State Warriors playoff game. According to the website, the woman was heckling Mayweather and his entourage, then “allegedly struck” one of them with a Thunder Stick. Mayweather’s people told TMZ… »
The ESPY Awards–a celebration of ESPN’s ability to celebrate celebrities—are being handed out tonight as ESPN takes advantage of the lull in the U.S. sports schedule.

While Conor McGregor’s scheduled bout against Jose Aldo next Saturday is off the table, McGregor still made an appearance on Conan last night in preparation for his new opponent Chad Mendes.

A couple of boxing fans have sued Manny Pacquiao for allegedly failing to disclose a torn rotator cuff before last weekend’s “fight of the century” against Floyd Mayweather. Pacquiao’s team says he reported the injury to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, but a form he filled out prior to the fight indicates no… »
Manny Pacquiao’s shoulder apparently is as bad as advertised—he’ll undergo surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff and could be out a full year. But his bigger problem might be that the injury wasn’t advertised, first being disclosed to the Nevada State Athletic Commission only two-and-a-half hours before the fight. »
Most of us had the choice to watch Saturday Night Live or Mayweather-Pacquiao this weekend. Jay Pharoah did not, because he had to work.

Last night’s boring fight between two old men may have been a boring fight between one old man and one injured old man. »
I should have known better. I should have known that the fight would suck.

There were people back in the day who used to bitch about Mike… »
