In “non-Tiger Woods” Sporting News: Manny Pacquiao to fight Floyd Mayweather March 13th & 2010 World Cup Draw Results

Filed under : Africa, Entertainment, Sports

Floyd Mayweather

So according to the Associated Press, Manny Pacquiao is likely to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. on March 13th, 2010. Wow! I have not been excited about a fight in a long, long time! Boxing fans have been looking forward to a super fight between Manny and the undefeated Floyd Mayweather after the Filipino champion defeated Miguel Cotto last month.

Oh, oh, there’s another fight coming up in January between “Sugar” Shane Mosley and Andre Berto. This welterweight fight is taking place on January 30th 2010, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

* Side-bar, even though Sugar is way older than ‘youngun’ Andre Berto, I say Sugar is going home with the title – just sayin’!!!

No venue has been decided for the mega fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao but representatives of the Superdome in New Orleans and the new Dallas Cowboys’ stadium have expressed interest in hosting the fight, as has the MGM Grand hotel-casino in Las Vegas, where the pair have fought their biggest fights.

There is also a proposal for a 30,000-seater temporary stadium on the Las Vegas Strip across from the Wynn resort.

I say “a fight ain’t a fight til it’s in Vegas”…not predicting on this fight because both fighters are actually exciting to me!  But if I have to, in typical girl fashion, I will go with the cute guy [smile]….

And in soccer news, my friends were clowning on Twitter today! It was a blast to tweet about the drawing real time! Gotta love technology! Shout out to my peeps on the ground in South Africa…The 2010 World Cup draw ceremony took place in Cape Town today and oh boy!

Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron was joined at Cape Town’s International Convention Centre with soccer hearth-throb David Beckham, Ethiopian marathon runner Haile Gebreselassie, former Cameroon footballer Roger Milla and South African cricketer Makhaya Ntini for the drawing.
