Floyd Mayweather Jr Update

Security Video Shows Alleged Aftermath

TMZ has obtained surveillance video taken the night Floyd Mayweather Jr. allegedly roughed up his children’s mother Josie Harris — showing Harris being wheeled off on a stretcher after seeking refuge in a security guard station. As TMZ first reported, Mayweather allegedly blew up at Harris after he learned Harris was seeing an NBA player — CJ Watson of the Chicago Bulls. The police report from that night details how Mayweather’s kids escaped the house and ran to a nearby guard station — and in the video, you can see all three kids entering the station. Police cars can be seen pulling up and, about 15 minutes later, Harris can be seen being taken out on a stretcher as she clutches her head. Mayweather was hit with eight charges from the incident and ordered to stay away from Harris and the kids. He is due back in court January 24.

Rigondeaux: Casey not in my class

WBA interim super bantamweight champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (7-0, 5 KOs) is preparing to school challenger Willie “Big Bang” Casey (11-0, 7 KOs) when they square-off March 19 in Dublin. “Casey doesn’t belong in the same ring as me,” the 30-year-old Rigondeaux said, “but I admire his courage for wanting to fight me. I’m excited about fighting in Ireland again, where I won my first World Championship as an amateur in 2001. My last fight, against Cordoba, was on the Pacquiao-Margarito card. Millions of people watching on pay-per-view, along with 61,000 fans in Dallas, watched me do what I had to do to win the WBA title.

“I am world champion. Casey and all of the fans in attendance will see a true world champion in action March 19. If Casey thinks I’m going to Ireland to lose my world title belt, he’s making a big mistake because I’m going to win, and in sensational fashion. He is tailor-made for me. I watched a couple of rounds of Casey’s previous fights and concluded that he’s a bit of a one-trick pony. We are as far apart in class as in residence, make no mistake about that and when the bell rings March 19th, that will certainly be evident to all.” (more…)

Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard engaged in a five round battle that will be a very early candidate for Fight of the Year. The highly anticipated rematch resulted in an outcome nobody could’ve predicted—a majority draw.

Gray Maynard wasted no time taking the fight to the champion. After a brief feeling out process, Maynard began a serious onslaught with a left hook that sent Edgar spiraling back and around the cage. Another right uppercut put the champ on the mat a second time. In what had to be the longest five minutes of Edgar’s career, he miraculously survived the blitz on heart alone . . . click here for more

“I thought it was my fight.”

Those words came out of Gray Maynard’s mouth over and over at the UFC 125 post fight press conference.

Maynard opened up a commanding lead in the opening round, nearly stunning champion Frankie Edgar with a first round stoppage. “The Bully” lived up to his moniker, flooring the champion three times with big shots and scoring two takedowns. Though Edgar made it out of the round and rallied back, the judges all scored the opener 10-8 for the challenger . . . click here for more

New Faces: Evens Pierre

By Robert Coster

Boxers many time have compelling stories to tell. And such is certainly the case with Haitian-born, Panama-based lightweight prospect Evens Pierre (17-1, 13 KOs). In his short two-year career, Pierre has become the only boxer born and raised in Haiti to win a boxing belt: the WBA Fedecentro title last June, a first step he hopes will move him into the world rankings in this coming year. Winning a boxing title, albeit a regional one, was hailed as a feat by Evens’ supporters back in Haiti, particularly in “Sun City” (Cite Soleil), the commune where he was born, a misnomer since the area is in fact an extended, dreary slum on the outskirts of the Haitian capital of Port au Prince, one of the poorest, crime-ridden, disease-ridden places in the world.
