Valentine’s Day, The Mayweather Way



By Michael Woods

Judging by this Instagram post, Floyd Mayweather had an…interesting Valentines Day, if one not suited for synopsis on a Hallmark card.

Ah, boxing, the sport for the rest of us. The broken or dented or re-wired souls. The athletic arena for the ones with the spirits which make them constitutionally incapable of subordinating their ego or pride reservoir to fit themselves into a classic team sport group dynamic. Where the (still) pack leader can, apparently, visit a brothel in Amsterdam, list his bullet points of activities undertaken…and have that be met with a societal shrug of…acceptance? Indifference?…maybe bewilderment.


Mayweather does have a knack for zigging, then zagging, in ways that keep him in the news. TMZ, have you seen this?

Editor/publisher Michael Woods became addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the fearsome Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist Woods has covered the sport since then, for ESPN The Magazine,, ESPN New York, RING, and he was editor of from 2007-2015. Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and numerous other organizations.
