Post Comments Thread For: Pac/Bradley Musings: Birth of a Salesman… and a Trilogy

By Lyle Fitzsimmons - Forget Willy Loman.

And while you’re at it… forget Billy Mays, Dale Carnegie and that old guy who mentored Tom Cruise’s character in Jerry Maguire.

In fact, you can go ahead and forget every great salesman you’d ever thought you’d known from movies, literature and late-night infomercial TV.

Because Bob Arum’s got ’em all beat.

I went ahead and labeled the long-time Top Rank consigliere a “genius” in a pre-fight tweet last week, back when I thought his master stroke was merely selling a slap-hitting 140-pounder without a relevant division win as a worthwhile contender for a welterweight title.

The idea that Tim Bradley – with exactly 12 KOs in 28 pro fights – would put up anything more than token resistance to a rampaging pound-for-pounder who’d not lost in seven years seemed patently ridiculous, but Arum showed his chops in the number of savvy media pros he’d gotten to buy in.

Mr Fitzsimmons pulled no punches in his very honest depiction of the con job slob arum has been pulling for several years. its time for the in-house fights to end and lets have some real fights. this slop is going to taint a good man (pac) as guilty by association. which is unfortunate. lets start a chant, down with bob! down with bob!!!!! this was a real good piece Lyle real fine work.

Amazing!
Even the most Pac Hater and Mayweather Paid Writer has sided with Pacquiao in this dubious decision!

It's speaks volume for itself!

FREE FLOYD!! HE IS BUTTHURT!


Mayweather seeks to serve jail sentence under house arrest
By Francis McCabe

© 2012 LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Posted: Jun. 11, 2012 | 8:44 p.m.
Updated: Jun. 11, 2012 | 9:04 p.m.

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," (lack of lube & condoms) 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 least two more years, according to the motion.

Voy, through a court order, examined the boxer for 90 minutes on Friday, while jail medical staff observed.

"Medical opinion shows that CCDC administrative segregation threatens to end or shorten Mr. Mayweather's boxing career," the motion stated.

Voy determined Mayweather is consuming less than 800 calories a day. He's eating fruit, bread and energy bars bought at the commissary. Under his normal daily training routine the boxer consumes between 3,000 and 4,000 calories.

Voy also investigated Mayweather's ability to exercise. He found Mayweather has no room to exercise in jail and he is not allowed to use the training areas because he's in isolation.

"After examining Mr. Mayweather, Dr. Voy was concerned with Mr. Mayweather's dehydrated appearance, his lack of muscle tone and his dry mucus membranes," the motion stated.

Dr. Voy also "expressed deep concern for Mr. Mayweather's health and explained that any lengthy period of time with an inappropriate diet, coupled with lack of regular exercise, will most likely lead to irreversible damage to Mr. Mayweather's physique," the motion stated.

"Such damage could and, most likely, would lead to Mr. Mayweather being unable to continue his boxing career," the motion stated.

Dr. Voy was also concerned that Mayweather was withdrawing into depression and developing anger issues that he normally can "dissipate" through his exercise routine.

Wright identified several differences between the way Mayweather is treated versus those in general population. Mayweather is only allowed access to shower, watch TV, use hot water to prepare food, use phones and exercise for an hour a day. Other inmates have access to phones, TV, and can play games with other inmates and are out of their cells "for most of the day."

Inside his cell, Mayweather doesn't have access to hot water to prepare food for himself or clean himself and he was recently told he cannot receive bottled water because he's in isolation.

According to the motion, Mayweather has not been a problem inmate and has treated jail staff with respect. Still, "He (Mayweather) believes he is treated in a very unfair and inhumane way," (butthurt) Voy stated in the motion.

In Ellerbe's affidavit, the trainer attested to Mayweather's vigorous training regimen. Ellerbe stated he has to "force him to leave the gym each day." And it is this dedication to training that has allowed Mayweather to remain undefeated, Ellerbe said.

"Whether Mr. Mayweather will be able to box again is dependent on his continued conditioning," the motion stated.

Wright added in the motion, "To lose his physique and ability to box because of being placed in administrative segregation is a blow he should not have to take."

That Mayweather is being held in isolation and not able to maintain his training regime "may cause, not just huge financial harm to Mayweather, but also huge emotional harm if he is no longer able to pursue his boxing career because of the de-conditioning he has suffered with CCDC."

Wright said that Mayweather believed he was only going to be in isolation for a week before being moved to another area of the downtown jail. Wright said jail officials have indicated he will remain in isolation. His scheduled release date is August 3, according to jail records.

Wright said in the motion that Mayweather would be willing to work with jail officials to find "an appropriate location" to serve house arrest if the judge agreed. It's unclear if the appropriate location would be Mayweather's 12,000-square-foot mansion in the ritzy Southern Highlands development that sports a walk-in closet bigger than his jail cell.

Mayweather has asked to be put in the general population, according to the motion, however, jailers have declined to do so because of his celebrity status.

An emergency hearing on the motion was set for Tuesday, but was not on the court calendar late Monday. A scheduling problem may cause the hearing to be pushed to Thursday.

On June 1, Saragosa commended the boxer for his progress toward completing his court-ordered counseling and community service.

Mayweather was on the way to completing other portions of his probation when he began serving the jail sentence.

He finished 21 of the 54 counseling sessions, including one on May 5, the day of Mayweather's last fight, a victory over Miguel Cotto.

Mayweather also completed 45 hours of community service with three local charities: Habitat for Humanity, Three Square food bank and the Las Vegas Rescue Mission.

In recent months, Mayweather has embarked on a goodwill campaign.

In addition to his required community service, Mayweather has donated more than $100,000 to charities, including the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation and Habitat for Humanity.

The boxer pleaded guilty in December to domestic battery and no contest to two counts of harassment, all misdemeanors, for assaulting the mother of three of his children and threatening his two sons.

He was scheduled to start serving his jail term in January, but Saragosa delayed his surrender so Mayweather could keep his scheduled bout with Cotto.

Mayweather won a unanimous decision, taking the WBA super welterweight title and running his record to 43-0. He was guaranteed (by himself) $32 million for the fight.

Mayweather's cell includes a bed, stainless steel toilet, sink and small desk, with a window with direct sunlight and fluorescent lighting.

According to state law, Mayweather could be a free man in as little as two months with good behavior.

There won't be a trilogy for the same reason there was no trilogy between Martinez and Williams.

I'm not saying Manny KO's Bradley, but it will be so one sided that no one would even want to see a third fight.

Manny is gonna beat the breaks off of Tim in the rematch.

Arum's trying to take the sport to the cleaners and I'm not talking about a room full of foreigners pushing a bucket and mop.
