I agree, I just wanna see the fight already too. I've been debating this fight along with everybody else for over 5 years, A lot has happened in the last 5 years. Just think about how much the landscape has changed in MMA in the last 5 years, but us boxing fans are still talking about the same two fighters. There is good things about that and bad things as well.

I am over the back and forth of who is at fault for the fight not happening yet, because they are both to blame for a lot of things. Pacquiao has been Arum's puppet and Floyd could have made this fight happen more than once. This has never been about weight classes, blood tests, or building some ridiculous outdoor venue in Vegas. It's about money. As a general fight fan I could care less who gets the lion's share as long as the guys fight, but we both know it's not that simple.

That being said, I still don't see Manny beating Floyd but, first things first, lets see how Manny looks against Bradley this Saturday.

Why would I make fun of Josie for getting beaten up? As for the other guys, yeah, it's pathetic, just like paparazzi, but they pretty much already make fun of themselves.

I'll make fun of Mayweather for going to jail for beating up his ex especially when the best part of it is his hypocrisy. In 2001, when he fought Diego Corrales, he dedicated the fight to all battered women in America as Corrales was facing charges of physically abusing his pregnant wife. Subsequently, Corrales served prison time for the abuse.
I laugh at the Floyd jokes too. I am a fan of his, but if something is funny I still laugh. If I think something is lame, then I say it's lame.

In regards to Floyd's charges...I'm not defending his actions, but it's probably safe to say there is a lot that we don't know about what happened that night. It's also not uncommon for people to plead out and take a small sentence rather than go through a lengthy and costly trial. Whatever the case, he is doing his time and it is what it is. It's not like he's Edwin Valero...

He's only 12 days into his sentence and although he's tough enough to beat up his ex, he isn't tough enough to sit in his cell for 23 hours a day for a measly 78 days.

Tired of celebrities thinking they deserve special treatment.

Mayweather seeks to serve jail sentence under house arrest

By Francis McCabe
2012 LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

Twelve days into his three-month jail sentence on a domestic battery count, undefeated champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is asking to go home.

Or he contends he may never fight again.

An emergency motion obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal shows Mayweather's lawyers will ask Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa as early as Tuesday that the former Olympian bronze medal winner be allowed to serve the remainder of his sentence on house arrest.

The 35-year-old's physical conditioning is deteriorating under the stress of being jailed at the Clark County Detention Center and he's being held in "inhumane conditions," lawyer Richard Wright said in the motion filed Monday.

The boxer is being segregated from the general population and confined to his cell 23 hours a day in a locked-down section populated by felony defendants, Wright said. And in the hour each day Mayweather is allowed in a recreation area, he is alone and unable to use training facilities.

Wright stated that others who have committed similar misdemeanor offenses are treated differently and Mayweather's celebrity status "cannot be accommodated at the CCDC."

Prosecutors are expected to oppose the motion. Jail officials were not available for comment late Monday.

Mayweather was sentenced to the 90-day jail stint after pleading guilty for beating his ex-girlfriend in front of their children in September 2010. He began serving his sentence June 1. Las Vegas police have maintained that Mayweather would be held in isolation to protect him from other prisoners.

The 35-page motion, which included affidavits from Mayweather's trainer Leonard Ellerbe and personal physician Dr. Robert Voy, stated that if Mayweather remained in jail it would threaten his career. He had planned on fighting for at lea
