Valentine’s Day, The Mayweather Way



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?

Founder/editor Michael Woods got addicted to boxing in 1990, when Buster Douglas shocked the world with his demolition of the then-impregnable Mike Tyson. The Brooklyn-based journalist has covered the sport since for ESPN The Magazine,, Bad Left Hook and RING. His journalism career started with NY Newsday in 1999. Michael Woods is also an accomplished blow by blow and color man, having done work for Top Rank, DiBella Entertainment, EPIX, and for Facebook Fightnight Live, since 2017.
