Injured elbow slows down boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather said he dislocated his left elbow in the middle of his majority decision over previously unbeaten Saul Alvarez.

The 36-year-old Mayweather earned a record $41 million purse Saturday for a dominating 12-round victory in which he claimed Alvarez’s World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association super welterweight belts.

“I could have used more combinations down the stretch. I think I dislocated my elbow,” said Mayweather during the post-fight news conference.

Mayweather said that for rounds six and seven he couldn’t use his jab because of the suspected dislocated elbow, although round seven still turned out to be one of his strongest of the fight.

“My arm was hurting, and I wanted to stop using my jab and just paw with it,” Mayweather said.

Doctors were expected to examine the elbow this week.

He used his superior hand speed to keep Alvarez at bay, but Mayweather still only managed to win the fight on two of the three judge’s scorecards.

Judge CJ Ross surprisingly scored it a draw, 114-114. The other two judges, Craig Metcalfe (117-111) and Dave Moretti (116-112) had Mayweather winning in a breeze.

Ross surprised many by giving six rounds to Alvarez. She is also one of two judges who scored a win for Timothy Bradley over Manny Pacquiao last year.

Mayweather criticized Ross after the fight.

“I think it is a woman, and she could be older,” said Mayweather.

Mayweather was fighting for just the second time since being released from prison after serving a sentence for assaulting the mother of his children.

Mayweather gave away 13 years in age and 15 pounds to the younger and stronger Alvarez.

The Mexican fighter tipped the scales at Friday’s weigh in right on the 152-pound catch weight. But by the time he entered the ring, Alvarez had ballooned to 165, 13 pounds heavier than he was at the weigh in. It was also 10 pounds heavier than the weight he had been sparring at in the week leading up to the fight.

The added weight made him look slow and awkward in the ring as he suffered the first loss of his career.

This was the second fight in Mayweather’s six-bout, 30-month contract with Showtime that could pay him more than $200 million.

Saturday’s fight marked the first time since 2007 that he has fought twice in a calendar year, and Mayweather said he plans to repeat that schedule in 2014 and 2015 by fighting in May and September.

Mayweather repeated several times after the fight that he is counting down the months until retirement, and he believes he will stop boxing sometime in 2015.

“I only got 24 months left,” he said.

Why Some Fans Are Sick of Pac-Man Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao

Not all boxing fans are Manny Pacquiao’s fans. But according to most Internet opinion polls, most of these fans are supporters or followers of the Filipino boxing superstar. Yet a good number of these boxing fans are sick and tired of a mere mention of the pound-for-pound king’s name.

There are a thousand and one reasons for loving or hating Manny Pacquiao. But the real reasons for hating him are few and even understandable, to say the least. On the flip side of things, the reasons for loving him are far greater than the reasons cited by those who hate him.

Boxing fans who are mesmerized by Pacquiao’s meteoric rise to greatness are saying the Filipino boxing superstar is beyond compare in many ways.

These diehard fans say there is little reason why some boxing fans should hate him. It seems only those who are envious of his success find him not worthy of their support.

Family-oriented boxing fans say they find Manny Pacquiao a real good role model to their growing kids who are into sports in general and into boxing in particular.

But why is he considered by many as a good role model?

In one of the social functions where Pacquiao was conferred a special award for his concern about cancer-inflicted people, a couple who had three teenage kids was asked by a broadcast journalist why they were supporting Manny Pacquiao.

“Who would not support Manny Pacquiao?,” the family head asked. “He was once a poor kid but managed to rise above poverty through sheer determination and hard work. He was almost illiterate but he later pursued education, got a high school diploma and later went to college. And now he is an elected congressman representing his district in Southern Philippines.”

“Now that he is a millionaire many times over, he gives up a large chunk of his wealth to poor but deserving countrymen. He supports charitable institutions that help the poor and the sick, grants scholarship to poor but deserving students and shares his winnings to just about anyone who needs help and assistance,” the family man said.

“Certainly he is a good example for the youth of today,” he added.

Boxing critics are saying Pacquiao is nothing but a media creation. And a good number of boxing fans hate him for a number of reasons.

To the Pacquiao haters, just a mere mention of his name will almost instantly trigger a heated and lengthy debate.

In some debates, Pacquiao haters would almost zero in on the boxer’s alleged use of performance enhancing drugs, cherry-picking opponents and womanizing, among other things.

They are sick and tired of Pacquiao’s continued rejection of Floyd Mayweather‘s demand for a random blood test and point to it as the main reason why the long-awaited Pacquiao-Mayweather fight would not happen.

They are likewise sick and tired of Pacquiao’s continued practice of cherry-picking his opponents to assure his victory in every fight. A case in point they said is the upcoming Pacquiao vs. Mosley fight which recently created a media frenzy when boxing fans called for a boycott to the fight recently.

Pacquiao haters claimed the Filipino boxer knew Mosley is past his prime and the pound-for-pound king should not have agreed to the fight.

Boxing fans who hate Manny Pacquiao agree the popular boxer is nothing but a media creation. They said Pacquiao has to take on real opponent such as Tim Bradley, Andre Berto, Sergio Martinez, among others, to prove his widely admired boxing skill.

Still some boxing fans are sick and tired of Pacquiao’s womanizing despite media’s alleged cover-up. They asked why Pacquiao has been tagged as a good role model for the youth when he is setting a bad example by having relationship with other women outside of his marriage.

Boxing fans have a lot of different reasons for hating or loving Manny Pacquiao. But some boxing fans say they are sick and tired of the PacMan.

Are you sick and tired of Manny Pacquiao?

I’ll beat Pacquiao, rematch Floyd, then retire – Mosley

Shane Mosley has revealed he is aiming to run the gauntlet of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr before hanging up his gloves.

Mosley (46-6-1) faces Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight title at the MGM Grand on May 7, one year after he lost to Mayweather on a unanimous decision.

The 39-year-old Mosley, who is without a win since January 2009, is aiming to bow out on a high note, having shown signs of a steep decline in recent years. He was discussed as the pound-for-pound king at the turn of the century, before falling to back-to-back defeats against Winky Wright in 2002.

Now he wants to repair his bruised reputation by avenging the defeat he suffered against Mayweather. “I have to give it my 100% all, give it everything I got, beat Pacquiao, we can do a rematch, fight Mayweather, and I think that’s pretty much it for me,” Mosley told the On the Ropesradio show. “Then I will go off and I will stop helping these young fighters become world champions and get into another side of the business.”

Mosley has accused Pacquiao of being easy to hit, and he is taking heart from the efforts of Antonio Margarito, who battled valiantly against the Filipino last year before coming off worse in a points decision.

“Pacquiao’s not the hardest person to hit so I’m going to have a pretty good advantage with being able to hit him,” Mosley said. “I think it’s going to be an exciting fight because both me and Manny like to fight. We both fight hard and we come to fight.

“I think with my size it’s going to help me a lot because I’m a lot faster than the guys that he’s fought and my timing is probably a little better than theirs, especially Margarito’s, and being that Margarito was able to hit him a few times I think that I have a better chance of hitting him a lot on the button.”
