Floyd Mayweather reading radio promos didn’t go well (Audio)

Floyd Mayweather honey coffeeRemember Thursday when 50 Cent had some fun with former best buddy Floyd Mayweather Jr. by challenging the boxer to read a page of Harry Potter? The rapper said he would donate big money to charity — $750,000 — if Floyd could read a page of the book without struggling. Now we know why he said that.

A show called “The Breakfast Club” on Power 105.1 FM realized that they had some audio of Floyd reading and played it on Friday. The audio shows Mayweather trying to read some promos/liners for the station.

Based on listening to the audio, Floyd really struggles to read the liner and has to start and stop multiple times. It sounds like he has a very low reading level and/or might have a learning disability.

Keep in mind a few things — Mayweather grew up with a boxing education and probably did not have much of an emphasis on schooling. His mother was a drug addict, his aunt died from AIDS due to drugs and his dad went to prison after being caught smuggling drugs. Floyd dropped out of high school to focus on boxing.

“I knew that I was going to have to try to take care of my mom and I made the decision that school wasn’t that important at the time and I was going to have to box to earn a living,” Mayweather told the New York Daily News in 2007.

Mayweather may struggle to read, and that can be a source of humor for many people because it’s one area where we can proclaim we’re better than the wealthy world champion boxer, but don’t let this audio fool you into thinking that Floyd is a dummy. He’s not the smartest guy, but he sure is one heck of a businessman. He’s a very sharp businessman.

Maybe being embarrassed by his inability to read will lead Floyd to work on his education when he’s done boxing.

50 Cent will donate $750K to charity if Floyd Mayweather can read one page of Harry Potter book

50-Cent50 Cent brought us his own version of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Thursday, and Floyd Mayweather Jr. probably isn’t going to appreciate it. Rather than dumping a bucket of ice water over his head, 50 has offered to donate $750,000 to the charitable organization of Mayweather’s choice if Floyd can read one page of a “Harry Potter” book without messing up.

“Floyd will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping or f—ing up. lmao,” he wrote on Instagram along with the video you see above.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with their history, Mayweather and 50 Cent used to be best friends until they had a falling out. They have been cordial toward one another in the past, but 50 seems to be determined to get under Mayweather’s skin lately. The rapper was one of the people who called out Mayweather after Floyd shouted at T.I.’s wife on the red carpet at the BET Awards.

It should be noted that the Ice Bucket Challenge is a social media movement that has helped raise money and awareness for ALS, which is also known as Lou Gherig’s Disease. If 50 is willing to pay Floyd $750,000 if Mayweather proves he can read, we’re hoping he at least donates some money to the ALS Foundation.

Mike Tyson and Jon Jones boxing and Tyson sets him up for sick punch (Video)

Former world heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson and current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones saw each other over the weekend and decided to have a little impromptu boxing sparring session. We’ll give you one guess regarding the outcome.

Jones posted this great video to his Instagram account and you can see Tyson throw three jabs before sneaking in a right that would have terminated Bones. The setup was as good as something seen in “The Sting.”

Tyson throws a stiff jab to the body and then throws it a second time. But on the second jab to the body, Tyson telegraphs it so Jones is only focusing on the jab, and then he sneaks in his right for a big punch that would have rocked Jones.

Mike Tyson Jon Jones

Tyson obviously held back on the right, but Jones and everyone “oooh’d” and “awww’d” over the Tyson punch. Even Jones admitted “he set that one up!”

Tyson was one of the most well-schooled boxers in the sport. He was smart, savvy and technically proficient. Most people look at him as just a brute, but this video shows you how he was just as much about smarts as power.

And how good was that combo? When I sent the video to Steve DelVecchio, he admitted he couldn’t even see the knockout punch. That’s that abbra-caddabra, holmes. Tyson has you focusing on one thing and forgetting about the other.

Floyd Mayweather’s newest girlfriend Liza Hernandez is Jerry Buss’ ex

Floyd Mayweather Liza Hernandez

Floyd Mayweather Jr. maintains a heavy stable of girlfriends and is not shy about that fact.

The world champion boxer has espoused his views on polygamy and said he believes a man should be allowed to have as many girlfriends as he can afford. It’s that womanizing lifestyle that led his ex-fiancee, Shantel Jackson, to leave him. But Floyd wasted little time moving on, and the latest addition to his rotation is quite a notable one.

Though Doralie Medina aka “Bad Medina” still appears to be Floyd’s No. 1 girlfriend, another girl surging up the charts is a woman named Liza Hernandez.

Hernandez used to be one of former Lakers owner Jerry Buss’ most prominent girlfriends. She also has a long list of celebrities and athletes (mostly Lakers) with whom she’s been linked.

Hernandez made Floyd her “Man Crush Monday” this week, and Floyd returned the favor by making her his “Woman Crush Wednesday.”

Floyd even tagged Hernandez in a video three weeks ago implying that he may have bought a Bugatti for three women — Hernandez, Medina and one of his baby mamas, Melissia.

As far as we can tell, Hernandez has been part of “The Money Team” since at least last month.

Here they were on a jet in a picture Floyd’s daughter shared on July 12:

She was in another picture with The Money Team in New York a few days later. And just a few days ago she was photographed having dinner with Floyd’s daughter.

As mentioned, Hernandez had a very strong relationship with Jerry Buss. Head to Page 2 to see more about her relationship with Buss.

Adrien Broner drops music video for song featuring Rick Ross

Remember how back in April we told you Adrien Broner was cultivating a Rick Ross look? Well it turns out there’s a lot behind that.

Broner is an aspiring rapper and has been releasing rap singles on YouTube over the past few months. Most of them are just the sound, but for his song “40,” he actually filmed a music video featuring his buddy Rick Ross.

You might think 40 is some sort of boxing reference about the number of wins or knockouts he has, but Broner hasn’t fought that much. Instead, “40” seems to represent all the fine things Broner owns that cost him 40k.

The song itself stinks, but the production for the music video is professional.

Below are Broner’s two other songs he’s put out on YouTube:

Manny Pacquiao’s mom Dionisia living with 40-year-old boyfriend

Manny Pacquiao mom

Manny Pacquiao’s mom may safely be called a cougar now.

Pac-Man said in a TV interview last week that his mother, Dionisia, is now living with her 40-year-old boyfriend. Dionisia, who is known affectionately as Mommy D, is 65.

Pacquiao even said his mom plans to marry her boyfriend. This essentially would be her third marriage. She has two children from a first marriage, and she has four children — including Manny — with Rosalio Pacquiao, her partner of 20 years.

Manny objects to her mother getting married a second time while her first husband is still alive and they have not legally divorced.

Dionisia confirmed she has a boyfriend but says they are not living together.

Mommy D gained some fame on the internet back in April during Manny’s fight with Timothy Bradley. She was seen praying during the fight, but it looked like she was placing a hex on Bradley.

If there’s anyone Manny should be able to commiserate with over this issue, it’s LeBron James. LeBron’s mom, Gloria, is 15 years older than her boyfriend, a rapper named Lambo. Perhaps their mutual friends at Nike could put them in touch so they can share secrets on coping skills.

Floyd Mayweather starts each day with a woman giving him a bath (Video)

Floyd Mayweather bathFloyd Mayweather is either an overgrown child or wealthy individual with way too much money on his hands. Or both.

Floyd posted this comical video to Instagram late Wednesday night showing everyone how he starts his day.

“This is how I get my day started, everyday. – MR. MY LIFE IS THE SH*” he wrote on Instagram.

I’d player hate on the kid, but everyone needs someone to do their back. The only surprise is that he doesn’t have someone brush his teeth for him too.

The royal penis is clean, your highness.
