Don King, on Mike Tyson


"Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter?
He went to prison, not to Princeton."



"To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music
and the dancers hit each other."

By the Numbers | Floyd Mzayweather


At 37, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the biggest name in boxing, with a spotless 45-0 record and a supersize personality to match. His taste for excess is the stuff of legend. Six-figure blackjack bets. A $10 million watch collection. A massive entourage he calls the Money Team, with Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber as honorary members. And last year, despite having zero endorsement deals, he still made a whopping $90 million — making him far and away the world’s highest-paid athlete. (LeBron James, by comparison, made around $60 million.) Mayweather is also a ruthless competitor, known for pummeling his opponents both in the ring and in the press. And when his next fight comes around on May 3, you can bet everything you have that he’s going to extend his streak. It’s what Mayweather would do, anyway. Here, a brief look at the fabulous life of the boxing champ.

OT: Will it happen? Are we going to witness Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao again very soon?
