C.J. Watson Denies Dating Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Baby Mama Josie Harris

Last week we told you that Floyd Mayweather Jr. was suspected of domestic violence against the mother of his children, Josie Harris. Judging by the smile in Floyd’s mugshot, he was not worried about the criminal charges.

So how did the whole thing come about? TMZ got a hold of the police report which says Pretty Boy was angered when he found out Josie Harris was involved with NBA player C.J. Watson.

Watson apparently is denying that he is dating Josie Harris. That’s all well and good, but denying that he is dating Harris does not mean they have never had sexual or intimate involvement. He’s probably just saying that because he’s trying to protect himself; he apparently has a girlfriend and a child with that woman.

Only a few people really know what’s going on, but where there’s smoke there’s generally fire. Sounds to me like a similar situation to when Gilbert Arenas’ fiance was fooling around with Shaq and I’m guessing what Harris told the police is the truth.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Always Stays Fly

It looks like police officers out in Las Vegas finally tracked down Floyd Mayweather Jr.  It also looks like he couldn’t care less that he’s been arrested.  The mother of Floyd’s children, Josie Harris, claimed Mayweather attacked her on Thursday.  After looking at the Floyd Mayweather Jr. mugshot, I’d say Pretty Boy is more concerned about looking fresh than he is about his police record.

Fresh shirt, fresh smile, fresh iPod, and an endless pit of money to spend on legal counsel.  Man, this guy’s a dink.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Suspected of Domestic Violence with Josie Harris

We didn’t exactly cover Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s racist and stereotypical rant last week against Manny Pacquiao, preferring to limit ourselves to coverage of his $50,000 iPod instead. To summarize my thoughts on the matter, the entire issue is a product of Mayweather’s stupidity; he’s so ignorant he doesn’t even realize that what he said was racist and how much he botched his stereotypes anyway.

Well, looks like some karma is catching up to Pretty Boy. TMZ Sports reported Thursday that Mayweather is a suspect in a domestic violence case with the mother of his children, Josie Harris. According to TMZ, “cops received a call at 5:03 AM from Floyd’s baby mama, Josie Harris, who claimed the boxer attacked her.”

Thirty Mile Zone points out that Harris was going to get a restraining order against Floyd, but it’s hard to know how trustworthy Harris is. Harris accused Floyd of assaulting her inside a car in 2003 but it was later determined she lied.

I don’t know what happened early Thursday morning nor do I know what will happen, but we do know this: Floyd Mayweather Jr. does not have the mental agility to escape this sort of trouble. The money yes, but not the mental power.

Floyd Mayweather’s Entourage Enjoys a Cockfight

Looks like we’ve figured out some more of what Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been doing while he avoids Manny Pacquiao. The 3rd highest-earning American athlete in 2010 is spending some time in Puerto Rico with his crew, and they’ve been videotaping various moments of their vacation. One of the spots they shot some footage from was a cockfighting arena called Club Gallistico de Puerto Rico.

I’m curious if Mayweather wagered his $50,000 iPod on a fight. I wouldn’t doubt it. Here’s the video of Floyd Mayweather’s crew at a cockfight, courtesy of You Been Blinded. You can’t actually see Floyd but if you look at YouTube user mig5353‘s videos you’ll see him. If you’re like me and find cockfighting to be disturbing, don’t bother watching.

I Wish My Car Was Worth as Much as Floyd Mayweather’s iPod

No, I don’t have a car that’s worth less than $300. Floyd Mayweather Jr. just so happens to have an iPod that’s valued at $50,000.  Yeah, you read that correctly and no, I didn’t add any extra zeros.  Looks like Floyd has been using all the spare time he has from blowing off Manny Pacquiao to pimp his iPod.

Honestly, who has a diamond iPod?  The man who made the third most money of any American athlete over the past year, that’s who.  Thanks to F-Listed who brought our attention to Mayweather’s Twitter for the photo and accompanying Tweet that reads, “Any artist in my i-pod is platinum thanx to the case…lol.”

Breaking Down America’s 50 Highest-Earning Athletes

Sports Illustrated has released its seventh annual “Fortunate 50″ list, which gives us a sense of the type of money American athletes made last year based on salary, winnings, endorsements and appearance fees.  Despite the epic downfall of his image, Tiger Woods remained at the top of the list with nearly $30 million to spare.  Phil Mickelson held strong at No. 2 on the list and can probably thank Tiger’s demise for any extra cash that may have been thrown his way over the past year.   Here are a few aspects of the list that stuck out to me:

Floyd Mayweather Jr.: Want an idea of how much money can be made in boxing?  Mayweather, who may or may not be ducking Manny Pacquiao, checked in at No. 3 on the list after not being ranked in 2009.  While most of the top athletes on the list rake in a ton in endorsements, Mayweather made only $250,000 in endorsement deals and the rest — $60 million — in salary and winnings.  A bout with Shane Mosley alone earned him $40 million.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Shane Mosley Begin USADA Olympic-Style Drug Testing

One of the criticisms of Floyd Mayweather Jr. was that he was holding up the fight with Manny Pacquiao because of outrageous demands that both fighters submit to random drug testing including blood tests. Critics say Mayweather was making these demands because he was afraid to fight Pacquiao. While I believe Mayweather took these steps because he knows how dangerous of a fighter Manny is, Floyd has displayed consistency in his new views on drug testing. Pretty Boy made Sugar Shane Mosley agree to random, Olympics-style drug testing prior to their fight, and they will begin that testing on Monday, March 22nd.

“I am excited that Shane Mosley and I are willing to take these tests to ensure a fair fight on May 1,” said Mayweather. “I just want to show the world that boxing is a clean sport and it is my hope that all fighters will take a similar stance and responsibility which reflects sportsmanship at the highest level and sets a new standard for safety in boxing.”

“I think the testing program is a great idea and I did not hesitate for a minute about agreeing to it,” said Mosley. “Let’s hope that the rest of the boxing world follows Floyd’s and my example.”

It’s a great sign that the two fighters have agreed to the random testing to come as close as possible to ensuring a level playing field, PED-wise. I really do hope that all boxing commissions in the U.S. and all sanctioning bodies around the world follow the precedent set by Mayweather and Mosley. As I’ve said all along, if Manny Pacquiao doesn’t have anything to hide then he shouldn’t have a problem with random blood testing. What might he be hiding that urine tests might not detect, you ask? Check out this list from USADA via FanHouse: Human Growth Hormone (HGH), Homologus Blood Tranfusion (HBT), Synthetic Hemoglobin (HBOC) and the passport program. That’s what Pacquiao could be hiding, amongst others. Why not submit to this program to prove he’s clean? That’s all he has to do, and with the health risks and physically demanding nature of the sport, why not level the playing field for all fighters as best as we can?
