Here is a flashback for your a$$. One of the only times that I know of that Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard and Muhammad Ali sat down to talk. Good sh@t Arsenio. Now question of the morning, how many rounds would it have taken Ali to knock out Tyson? I’m going with 5.
HBO followed Floyd Mayweather around for 2 days. Mayweather discussed what motivates him.
So who you with for the fight tomorrow? Manny or Shane?
The monument is the result of a three-year creative journey that began when internationally lauded artist Michael Kalish was approached by Lonnie and Muhammad Ali to create a private original sculpture for them from Kalish’s signature license plate art collection.
This experience provided the inspiration for Kalish to undertake the epic task of creating reALIze. The monument is larger than life, as is Ali’s legacy: an appropriate testament to the essence of the legend the world has come to know, simply, as “The Greatest.”
The breath-taking effect is an enormous, 360-degree, two-story structure composed of five miles of stainless steel, two miles of aluminum tubing, and 1300 boxing speed bags. Viewed from nearly every angle, the result appears to be a massive, boxing-inspired rainstorm — but find the exact right position, and it unexpectedly becomes a 2-D vision of the timeless face of Muhammad Ali.
Conceptualized by Kalish and designed by Kalish and architectural firm Oyler Wu Collaborative, reALIze is the ultimate tribute to the iconic boxing legend.

Don King is an interesting character no matter how you draw him up. Yeah he is a lil over-the-top at times, but I truly believe that if we get him away from the cameras and audience he might be able to drop a gem on us. He might I said, or maybe he can just be that drunk uncle that entertains the family at summer cook-outs.
Don’t know about you all but I would rather see Mayweather in the ring as opposed to doing a show with 50. Well maybe the show will feature Mayweather training for his next fight?
Floyd “Money” Mayweather and 50 Cent are eyeing reality TV. They announced at Sundance that they’d partner on movie projects through Fitty’s Cheetah Vision Films and Mayweather’s Mayweather Films, but also told us they want to develop a reality show centered around their friendship. Mayweather was featured in VH1′s “What Chilli Wants” as a love interest of Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of pop group TLC. Fitty’s and Mayweather’s first film will be “Tomorrow Today,” based on one of the rapper’s first screenplays.
How many of you were actually surprised by this? Now all we need to see is for Mayweather to sign on the dotted line. But for reason we’re thinking Floyd doesn’t want any of Pacquiao!!
Fat Joe talks about R Kelly and his boxing days. It is funny, as I can imagine exactly how the scenario played out. Fat Joe will be one of those cool old heads that can tell a great story of his younger days.
