As I sat in the office today watching lightweight Errol Spence propel USA boxing to 4-0 in London after the second day of competition, I started reminiscing about the days when the sport actually was deemed enjoyable. I know right. That was quite a long time ago. Better yet, can you even name five current boxers in the heavyweight division?...I'll wait (taps mic).
After the whole Timothy Bradley v. Manny Pacquiao melee, pugilist aficionados are starting to losing hope about this fantasy showdown between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. Call it optimism, but I actually think these two sluggers will eventually end up in the ring together. Don't ask for a time frame because there isn't one as long as Mayweather continues his knucklehead track record outside of the ropes. I just hope these two gentlemen can bring this sport back to its prominence.
In the meantime though, my colleague showed me this video of Mike Tyson, which didn't make the situation any better, but did give me a good laugh. Check out :54 second mark of the video posted below and tell me if you see anything wrong. It's clear who's going to win this fight just from the preview cam.

I was sold on posting a video of Dwight Howard getting slammed on by Kobe Bryant for this week's facial, but the recent return of Brandon Roy to the National Basketball Association has made me choose otherwise.
Roy has agreed to a two year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves for around $10 million.
I'm certain that Twolves fans are elated of the recent news and hope Roy can add a spark to this young and vigorous unit.

In typical Michael Jordan fashion, his Hall of Fame speech resembled his competitive nature on the hardwood, one of a kind. Hate him or love him, Jordan was always content on doing it his way.
The kicker for me in the speech was the story about Bryon Russell. All I could say is be careful what you wish for.
