That was awkward: Pacquiao & Mayweather share uncomfortable handshake at National Basketball Association game

That was awkward: Pacquiao & Mayweather share uncomfortable handshake at National Basketball Association game

"That's why I don't want to talk about my next fight until I finish this business against Adrien Broner".

Pacquio leant down to Mayweather, who stayed seated, and shook the undefeated American's hand before moving on. Broner dethroned DeMarco and earned a vacant WBA crown against Allakhverdiev, his fourth in as many divisions. I think I have all the tools to beat him. He has been busy training for that fight and is an odds-on-favorite to prevail over "The Problem".

"I've never seen Adrien this focused and I've been around him for years", Cunningham said. Nothing will ever top Joe Frazier almost drowning in the pool of the 1973 Superstars competition, coming in dead last in the 100 yard dash, and somehow losing the weightlifting competition to a pole vaulter, but a game of basketball between the 5-foot-5 Pacquiao and the 5-foot-8 Mayweather may be bad enough to challenge Roy Jones failing to dunk successfully once, in a celebrity dunk contest, or the overall weirdness of a prime George Foreman bowling with Bob Newhart.

"I am not going to be a water boy during the fight", said Fernandez, his face lighting up.

Pacquiao was 11-0 (four KOs) when Torecampo stopped him in the third round of a 112-pound bout, and 26-1 (17 KOs) when a third-round KO loss to Singurat cost him his 112-pound WBC flyweight title.

The 41-year-old rolled back the years, sending his 20-year-old foe to the canvas three times in a brutal onslaught which lasted just 140 seconds, Tenshin's corner throwing in the towel to signal their submission. As can be seen in the video below, he went on an X-rated rant against Broner.

Fernandez had his baptism of fire as chief trainer past year when Pacquiao overpowered Lucas Matthysse of Argentina to win the WBA 147-lb title in Malaysia when Hall of Famer Freddie Roach didn't get a call-up.

Sarah Thomas will become first woman to officiate an National Football League playoff game
Sunday will mark the third playoff showdown between Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his Chargers' counterpart Philip Rivers. Thomas made history in 2015, when she was hired by the NFL to be the first full-time female officiant in league history.

Winter Storm Warning in effect for large areas of western NC
Areas further to the south will get the most snow, with parts of South Jersey and northern DE seeing as much as 3-5 inches. We do not expect any widespread issues, but some slick spots are still possible especially early Monday morning.

Instead of downplaying his age, Pacquiao has celebrated it by holding a massive birthday party on December 17 in General Santos City that was attended by President Rodrigo Duterte, local athletes, celebrities, and political allies.

"Right now at this age sometimes you can not recover overnight. You can ask me again after this one", Pacquiao said Thursday.

Filipino dishes like fried Pampano fish and chicken tinola and plenty of rice remain among the home-cooked meals he devours in camp to push his weight up to the welterweight range and keep from dipping into the 130s.

Pacquiao continued his streak of being perennially tardy, stepping into Wild Card Boxing in its nondescript Hollywood strip mall location about an hour later than expected.

Pacquiao himself seems a bit exhausted of talking about a Mayweather rematch.

Roach is only interested in Broner and a rematch with Mayweather.

A week from Saturday, Pacquiao will fight in his first pay-per-view fight since facing Jessie Vargas in a Top Rank-produced PPV that generated a measly 300,000 buys.
