Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao, boxing

Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. finally challenged Manny Pacquiao for a much awaited blockbuster world title fight on May 2, however he wants the bigger share of the proceeds. Well, that's reasonable since he is undefeated but it should not be too much. Pacquiao, had an impressive decision win against Chris Algieri last November in Macau, China.

Mayweather 37 (47-0, 26 KOs) said during an intervie on Showtime Sports last Friday, "We want the fight, we are ready. Let's make it happen on May 2. Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao. Let's do it. I am not ducking or dodging any opponent. Bob Arum is stopping the fight."

"I wanted that fight a long time ago and I am just waiting on them."

Pacquiao said Mayweather tried to offer him $40 million for a fight and Mayweather will also keep the pay-per-view money.
There there were the blood testing excuse by Floyd, it is clear that Floyd is ducking and making things up. I just hope this time he is really serious about fighting Pacman.

Floyd has been ducking Manny for years.

"I want to go out with a bang," Floyd said.

Kevin Garnett was caught on cam trying to bite Joakim Noah's hand, Joakim has no idea what KG was doing. But it appears that KG was just joking, or is he?

He said, "I know how to bite somebody." "Obviously I was messing around in that moment. If I wanted to bite (Joakim Noah), I would've. Shout out to Mike Tyson."

Joakim Noah said about the incident, "He (Kevin Garnett) tried to bite me, man. It's unbelievable. I don't even know what to say."

Too bad, KG should have done it his team Brooklyn Nets lost to Chicago Bulls 84-102 last Sunday.

NFL Thursday, November 27

NFL , NFL Thanksgiving, football

Chicago Bears (5-6) vs. Detroit Lions (7-4)

The Lions has not been doing good lately they lost to Arizona Cardinals (6-14) then got clobbered by the New England Patriots (9 - 34), while the Chicago Bears beat Buccaneers 21-13. The last meeting of the two teams Lions beat Bears 21-19, November 10, 2013. My call is that the Lions the Bears, hey the Lions were up against two top teams in Cardinals 9-2 while the Patriots are also 9-2 and Detroit will be fighting for the playoffs.

Philadelphia Eagles (8-3) vs. Dallas Cowboys (8-3)

Eagles and Cowboys will be battling for the top spot in the NFC East get ready for this showdown. This is a hard pick since both are good teams but I'll pick the Cowboys since they ussually play well on Thanksgiving. The Eagles  can score points but it'll be the Cowboys defense that will control the game.

Seattle Seahawks (7-4) vs San Francisco 49ers (7-4)

The NFC West rivals will face off Thursday night, this is the first matchup of the two in 18 days, the 49ers are looking for a 6th consecutive home victory against the Seahawks. This is be a great game, Seahawks has the advantage in offense since lately the 49ers offense is not good. They are out of rhythm. I think 49ers will still come through and take this game.

Manny Pacquiao Decisions Chris Algieri, Knocks him Down 6x

It was a lopsided fight, Chris Algieri was in defensive mode all through out the bout. Manny Pacquiao though he lost some speed and power due to age was impressive against an overmatched Algieri. Pacquiao knocked Algieri down 6 times Sunday November 23 (Saturday US time), had an easy time getting the decision victory before a sell-out crowd of 13,202 in their fight for the WBO welterweight title at Cotai Arena, Macau China.

Algieri had nothing to offer for Pacquiao, it seems that he just wanted to survive and finish the fight standing. He didn't threw enough punches he just kept on guard, placing his hands high and circled away constantly. He didn't even plant his feet and throw or throw counter punches.

Pacquiao is in attack mode, he chased Algieri aggressively around the ring and throw big shots.
