    Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight Shatters PPV Records

    We all knew that the highly-anticipated (and incredibly underwhelming) Mayweather-Pacquiao fight would break many of boxing’s previous revenue records, but I’m not sure anyone expected this, via a press release from HBO: The boxing blockbuster event, Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao, shattered the previous record for total pay-per-view buys and now ranks as the highest-grossing […]

    After the lackluster Mayweather-Pacquiao fight (which we’re all ready to stop writing/talking about, I think) we could use a little excitement in the ring. Fortunately, Canelo Alvarez was able to bring just that in his matchup against James Kirkland. After landing some stiff punches in the opening rounds, sending Kirkland to the mat several times, […]

    Mayweather Responds to Pacquiao Excuse on Instagram

    Because all the most high-minded discussions take place on social media, Floyd Mayweather took to Instagram to respond to the Manny Pacquiao excuse that he fought with an injured shoulder last weekend. Even Mayweather haters would likely admit that Pacquiao bringing this up after the fight is a little weak. Mayweather certainly thought so as […]

    Michelle Beadle Shares Her Thoughts on Getting Banned from Mayweather-Pacquiao

    As you may have heard, last week Floyd Mayweather revoked press credentials for CNN’s Rachel Nichols and ESPN’s Michelle Beadle ahead of his big fight against Manny Pacquiao. And while no one actually came out and admitted it—The Money Team in fact denied that it happened at all, saying it was just some sort of misunderstanding—it […]

    Jimmy Kimmel Talks About Being In Pacquiao’s Entourage (Video)

    As fight fans may have noticed on Saturday night, there was an odd addition to Manny Pacquiao‘s entourage. Over his left shoulder was none other than Jimmy Kimmel, looking like a deadpan Run DMC castaway. Jimmy Kimmel accompanied Pacquiao as the fighter made his way to the ring, with music blaring and much fanfare. Well, […]

    Watch Floyd Mayweather Sr. Eat It on the Dance Floor (Video)

    We didn’t get as much Floyd Mayweather Sr. for last weekend’s fight as I would have liked. At least, I thought so at the time. Now we’re getting some footage of him that’s almost making up for it. At a pre-fight dance party (that’s a thing?) Floyd Mayweather Sr. was cutting a rug to something fierce when […]

    I think most people would agree that Saturday’s Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was far less exciting than any video game, let alone the lofty Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out for NES. Nonetheless, it’s pretty fun to watch the fighters’ 8-bit representations speak candidly about the death of boxing while in their corners between rounds in this parody. Is boxing […]

    Last night was home to one of those unavoidable programming conflicts that happen whenever a big one-time-only sporting event happens on television – the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was running at the same time as Saturday Night Live. Rather than ignoring the situation, the SNL crew decided to lean in and do a fake pirated pay-per-view signal of the fight, […]
