Justin Bieber Will Walk Floyd Mayweather Out

Justin Bieber will be walking Floyd Mayweather Jr. out to the ring on May 2. Floyd will be fighting Manny Pacquiao in the richest fight in boxing history. About.me said that the fight itself has already garnered a massive amount of attention, but a superstar like Justin Bieber adds even more attention to the show.

Bieber and Mayweather have been friends for the last several years, but their relationship does seem a bit strange. The fact that Bieber is walking Floyd to the ring is nothing new, but Bieber and Pacquiao do not like each other. Justin Bieber once posted pictures on Twitter of Manny Pacquiao being knocked out.

On May 2, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally meet, and Justin Bieber will be there to hold Floyd’s hand along the way. However, Justin will not be able to help Floyd in the fight, but he can try to sing him to victory. Manny Pacquiao is not too shabby of a singer himself, and maybe Manny and Bieber can sing a duet after the big fight. For more information on Justin Bieber and Floyd Mayweather, visit Yahoo! Sports.

Manny Pacquiao All About Business In Preparation for Bout With Floyd Mayweather

The fight that everyone has been waiting for the past ten years is finally scheduled to happen. After years of repeated non announcements, the Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fight is under contract and the parties appear to be serious about the business of preparing for the fight. The Fight of The Year is On

Those that had doubts as to whether Mayweather really wanted the fight are more satisfied now that he has agreed to the fight. Ray Lane said in the past three years saw an intense amount of rhetoric from the Manny Pacquiao camp regarding Floyd’s reluctance to agree to the fight. Manny’s challenge even went as far as the production of television commercials where he appears to be mocking Floyd for refusing to fight him. Now, there is simply silence as both camps go about the business of preparing for the epic match.

Boxing experts expect this to be the most lucrative fight in boxing history. Currently Las Vegas has the odds in favor of Mayweather but slightly. No one is taking Pacquiao for granted and the fact that the pay per view proceeds are expected to be highest grossing ever for a televised match reflects this belief among both long time boxing patrons as well as the casual boxing fan.

Rafael dos Anjos proved that he was better than Anthony Pettis on that night. Dos Anjos attacked Anthony Pettis from the opening bell to the last. The challenger appeared to be on another level than the champion.

Restaurant Offers Manny Pacquiao Free Food for Life If He Beats Mayweather Jr.

The much hyped fight of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. has some pretty high stakes. There’s more than just glory and ego on the line of the May 2nd fight in Las Vegas.

Gerry’s Grill in Artesia, Calif is a Filipino restaurant that the celebrated boxer reportedly frequents and has offered to give him as many free meals as he likes for the rest of his life, with no menu restrictions if he wins the fight said Brad Reifler. Besides winning the match, only Pacquaio himself, and not any of his entourage, which often includes 50 members of his friends and family, can get free food, and he only eats for free when he eats in the restaurant. But no matter what it’s a pretty sweet deal, and one that many people would love to have on the table.According to TMZ Sports, the restaurant offered the deal to the 36 year old boxer and promised to “keep him rolling in Chicken Adobo” for as long as he lives, saying that they love the boxer and his entourage. No matter what the outcome Gerry’s Grill is certain to get some incredible publicity from the offer, and apparently already has a huge fan in the Filopino superstar and his friends and family.

Ronda Rousey Will Not Fight A Man Because…

She does not have to. This woman has nothing to prove, and there is a distinct issue with fighting men because of the chivalry that we want to keep up in society. She is not going to fight a man because it is not fair to either parties. If she beats a guy in a match, he will be crushed forever for losing to her. If she loses, everyone will say that she was a fake even though she is the most dominant female fighter of all time.

There is something that we need to remember about the way that fighting happens in MMA as seen on noticias.uol.com.  They fight in their weight classes, and the playing field is level. This is not some kind of cage match society that is like the Thunderdome. If you want to live in the Thunderdome, that is fine. However, none of the rest of use live in that world. You need to remember that she has nothing to prove, but she is not going to put someone in a bad position.
