Medina Rips TMT: You Are Not Mayweather, Be Yourself!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Later tonight at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Rogelio “Porky”  Medina (32-6, 26 KOs) of Hermosillo will face undefeated super middleweight contender J’Leon Love (18-0, 10 KOs) in the main event of a ShoBox televised tripleheader. This is the second fighter who Medina will face from the Mayweather Promotions stable. Medina previously fought Badou Jack and was stopped in six rounds in six rounds last December.

Medina feels the fighters under the Mayweather Promotions stable, also known as The Money Team, attempt to fight like their promoter, pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“All the fighters on TMT want to fight like Floyd. The problem with that is there is only one Floyd and you must be yourself and not try to fight like someone else," Medina said.

Medina says his camp went very well and he plans to capitalize on this big opportunity with an upset victory over the heavily favored Love.

“I feel very strong going into this fight. I am very well prepared. In the past when I moved up a weight class I fought well, but didn’t win. The reason for that was I wasn’t properly prepared going into those fights to take the punches, but for this fight I have constantly been training for the past three months. I feel that I can beat anyone in the 168-pound weight class," Medina said.

Casino is great, but it's no Goodfellas.

[QUOTE=Aztekkas;14900761]Casino has got to be my favourite Mob Flick. DeNiro and Pesci were just on point, and their chemistry will always be legendary. Goodfellas was also amazing… "I'm funny how, funny like I'm a clown? I amuse you?" That whole…
