There's big news coming from the world of boxing, with the most notable, being Floyd Mayweather being denied from early release from Jail. He was supposed to serve about three months behind bars, but after just two weeks, Mayweather has already requested to serve the remaining time in house arrest, which was immediately denied. Here's the report from TMZ (via BadLeftHook):
Moments ago, a judge DENIED Mayweather's request -- ordering him to serve out the remainder of his 3-month sentence behind bars... The judge called B.S. on Mayweather's claim that he's dehydrated behind bars -- saying the boxer's condition is "self-induced, as water is made available to [Floyd] twenty-four hours a day."
As for Floyd's gripe that he's only consuming a fraction of the calories he needs -- the judge says it's because "[Floyd] chooses not to eat the food provided."
The judge also balked at Floyd's complaint that he can't train at a world class level while serving his time -- saying, "While the training areas and times provided to Floyd may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses."
After the jump, more news, including Timothy Bradley thoughts on TRT, which has become rather common in MMA recently.
Fight Hub has caught up with Bradley, and found out what he had to say about Testosterone Replacement Therapy. The boxer says he has never heard about TRT, but when it was explained to him, he deems it as "cheating" watch it below:
- The WBO will be reviewing the controversial bout between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley with 5 judges. They're a sanctioning body, so they won't be able to change the outcome of the fight, but they can decide if they want to strip Bradley of their WBO belt.
- Pacquiao vs. Bradley drew an $8.9 Million live gate. That would be mammoth numbers if it happened for an MMA event, but that number is roughly on par (maybe slightly lower) than other Pacquiao fights.
- Floyd's uncle, Jeff Mayweather trained jiujitsu with Robert Drysdale. Check out a photo of him in a Gi.
- Timothy Bradley has an update on his injury. He doesn't have a not broken or fractured foot as initially reported, but he does have a pulled ligament on his left foot, and a severely sprained right ankle.
