Floyd Mayweather

February 19, 2013             10:39 a.m.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced Tuesday he will return to the ring for the first time in a year to fight Robert Guerrero on May 4, probably at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, as part of a new deal with Showtime and CBS for up to six fights in 30 months.

Mayweather, 35, hasn’t fought since May 5, 2012, when he defeated Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision.

He has previously been a mainstay on HBO pay-per-view, his 2007 victory over Oscar De La Hoya standing as the most lucrative event in boxing history.

In a statement Tuesday, Mayweather announced the “groundbreaking” deal that will include a “unique revenue-sharing arrangement between Showtime PPV and Mayweather,” and “will enable him to fight up to six times over a period of 30 months.”

Full details were not released, and given Mayweather’s propensity for taking long layoffs, his fighting that often would appear far-fetched.

Now established as boxing’s unquestioned top pound-for-pound fighter following Manny Pacquiao’s knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in December, Mayweather (42-0, 26 knockouts) will defend his World Boxing Council welterweight belt in the Guerrero bout.

Mayweather has taken lengthy layoffs of 21 and 16 months before, returning to dominate Marquez by decision in 2009 and knocking out Victor Ortiz in 2011, respectively.

This break included a more than two-month stay in a Las Vegas jail last summer as part of his sentence for his role in a domestic violence case involving the mother of three of his children, Josie Harris.

Since his release, Mayweather has taken to attending NBA games in Los Angeles, posting photos of winning and losing betting tickets on Twitter, snowboarding and spending time with friends, whom he refers to as “The Money Team.”

He announced on Twitter earlier this month that his father, Floyd Sr., would take on a more prominent role as his trainer for this next fight.

The pair have engaged in heated arguments, including one that aired in 2011 on HBO’s reality television series, “24/7.”

Roger Mayweather, the fighter’s uncle and prior trainer, has battled the effects of diabetes in recent years.

Guerrero, 29, of Gilroy, Calif., is 31-1-1 with 18 knockouts, and most recently produced a compelling triumph Nov. 24 in Ontario, knocking down former world welterweight champion Andre Berto in both the first and second rounds en route to a unanimous-decision victory.

Guerrero is a southpaw who took more than a year off from the sport himself to help his wife, Casey, successfully battle life-endangering leukemia.

His only career blemishes are a 2004 draw and 2005 split-decision loss.

NYC fight fans are hoping that the April 13 clash between Filipino-American superstar Nonito Donaire, who holds the WBO super bantam crown, and WBA super bantam champ Guillermo Rigondeaux will land in The City, perhaps at Radio City Music Hall. But a person with knowledge of negotiations between the BWAA 2012 Fighter of the Year Donaire and the Cuban cutie Rigondeaux (11-0; age 32) said it was too early to call the venue.

My source said he is “confident” the fight will go down, but said the venue is “up in the air” and that California and Texas can’t be ruled out as fight sites. “We’re trying to finalize a lot of things but given it’s Friday night and there’s a snowstorm (in the East), this will drag through the weekend.”

Donaire’s arc is complicated slightly by the fact that his wife Rachel is due to give birth in June, so he wants to carve out a chunk of time then to savor the experience. The boxer holds a 31-1 record.

November 19, 2012

Manny Pacquiao had just connected with the best punch of his career, a left hook that landed on the butt of Ricky Hatton’s chin with six seconds remaining in the second round of their super lightweight fight.

Hatton went down as if he were shot, completely out, as Pacquiao leaped upon the ropes in celebration. Medical personnel rushed to Hatton’s side as he lay unmoving, flat on his back atop the logo in the center of the ring at the MGM Grand Garden.

Only a few seconds after the fight ended in a brutally devastating manner, HBO’s Jim Lampley looked at the fallen Hatton and said, “I’m not a medical guy, but he’s in very bad straits there.”

Lampley, nor anybody else, had a clue how bad it would get for Hatton.

It’s now more than three-and-a-half years since Hatton lost to Pacquiao. He’s 34 and preparing to return to the ring for the first time since that ignominious night in Las Vegas on May 2, 2009.

Ricky Hatton laughs during a workout in front of media in Manchester, England.

He’ll fight Vyacheslav Senchenko on Saturday in his hometown of Manchester, England, in a welterweight fight that will be broadcast on Showtime. More than 24,000 tickets were sold in 48 hours, long before an opponent had even been named.

“I can’t even express to you how grateful I am for the outpouring of love and support I’ve received,” Hatton said.

That Hatton is alive is somewhat of a miracle. Several times, he found himself with a knife, about to slash his wrists and end it all, looking to run away from the pain.

He abused cocaine. He was in a constant drunken stupor. His weight ballooned to 210 pounds. He had panic attacks at all hours of the day or night.

He wished he were dead.

“There was a time when it seemed like that might be the only option, when it would be best for me to just [commit suicide] and end it all,” Hatton said.

A year-and-a-half before he was knocked out by Pacquiao, Hatton met Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a battle of unbeaten fighters in Las Vegas.

The MGM Grand Garden had, quite literally, been taken over by Hatton’s passionate British fans. More than 30,000 of them had flown to Las Vegas for the bout, though the arena only held a bit more than 16,000.

They were omnipresent, singing Hatton’s unofficial theme song, “There’s Only One Ricky Hatton,” over and over and over again.

There’s only one Ricky Hatton!/One Ricky Hatton!/Walking along, singing a song, walking in a Hatton Wonderland!

The weigh-in on Dec. 7, 2007, was one of the most remarkable spectacles in modern boxing history. There was more passion inside the MGM Grand Garden that afternoon than there’d been for any fight in years, maybe decades.

“That,” Hatton says now, “is something I can never forget. I’ve always tried to be a down-to-earth guy and remain close to my roots. Over here in England, the way they phrase it is they say, ‘You’re just one of the lads. You’re one of us.’ I wouldn’t have the fan base that I have if I were any other way. Let’s be honest. They supported me so strongly because I was no different than they were.”

If he wasn’t fighting, he was in the pub in Manchester drinking a pint with one of them, watching sports on television and generally being a bon vivant. To the citizens of Manchester, Hatton wasn’t a celebrity; he was a Mancunian, albeit one who happened to have a special talent.

Hatton obviously ended up losing the fight to Mayweather, but it didn’t hurt his popularity one iota. Mayweather, after all, was widely viewed as the finest fighter in the world. Hatton had been knocked out in the 10th round, but he’d never stopped attacking and trying to win.

British boxer Ricky Hatton gestures during the weigh-in before his fight with Manny Pacquiao.

His fans were unhappy with the way that Mayweather used his elbow and more angry with referee Joe Cortez for not doing something about it.

Hatton’s reputation remained pristine among the passionate British boxing fans. In his first fight after losing to Mayweather, he drew an astounding 55,000-plus fans to the City of Manchester Stadium for a bout against Juan Lazcano.

He then returned to Las Vegas to defeat Paul Malignaggi, setting up the showdown with Pacquiao. A Pacman-Hatton fight was about as big as it could get in boxing at the time.

Hatton had hired Floyd Mayweather Sr., his old nemesis’ father, to train him. And though Pacquiao was the betting favorite, Hatton was utterly confident.

He wanted to win so badly, to give those wildly loyal fans the victory they so desperately sought. He’d always tended to blow up a little bit in weight between fights, so much so that he’d been nicknamed “Ricky Fatton” by the British media.

Hatton knew, though, how good Pacquiao was and knew he would need to be in superior condition to win. And so, he started camp early and attacked it with a vengeance.

“Training camp was going absolutely sensationally,” he says now. “I was so confident of winning. I had started earlier and I got my weight down earlier. I think I hit my peak two or three weeks before the fight. Really, my brother [Matthew], my father [Ray], and my team, everybody was saying, ‘Rick, look, you’ve got to slow down. You’re going to leave it all in the gym.’ ”

He didn’t pay attention to them. He kept pushing and pushing. He received a warning sign when he was knocked down in sparring by a super featherweight.

He didn’t take the hint.

 

“That should have been a sign to me,” he said. “I look back on it now and it’s obvious. I’m not saying I would have won the fight no matter what, because Manny Pacquiao is Manny Pacquiao and he’s a tremendous fighter. But I didn’t give myself my best chance. I needed to be smarter with how I trained and I was at my peak weeks before the fight.”

He was knocked down twice in the first round and Pacquiao was hitting him with just about everything he threw.

Manny Pacquiao hits Ricky Hatton in the face in the first round of their fight.

Pacquiao was cracking him again and again and again with powerful shots before landing the most famous punch of his career at 2:54 of the second.

 

That punch turned around Hatton’s life and, truth be told, almost cost him his life.

“I let a lot of people down,” Hatton said. “I felt like an utter failure. I let my country down. I let British sport down, British boxing, my kids, my friends, my community.”

He retired after the fight, still in prime fighting age. His life was spiraling out of control as he binged on cocaine and alcohol.

He would cry hysterically, for no reason. He found himself in court in a lawsuit with his former coach and one-time best friend, Billy Graham. He had a nasty split with his parents.

He says he often thought of drinking himself to death. Several times, he said, his girlfriend, Jennifer, caught him with a knife attempting to slash his wrists.

“I think I was having a nervous breakdown,” he said.

He’s coming back believing that he’s still got the ability to be a world champion. He’s fighting a guy who held the WBA welterweight title earlier this year.

But no matter what happens in the fight, Hatton says, he’s certain of one thing.

 

“People ask me, ‘Rick, what are you coming back for? What have you left to prove?’ ” Hatton said. “I’m not coming back to prove anything, though. I’ve already won. I turned my life around. I was horrible, pretty much as low as one could go, and I’ve overcome that.

“I’m in great shape. I’m ready to fight. But that’s not the point. The point is that I’ve gotten to this stage. This fight is about redemption. I don’t want to be remembered as that guy who got laid out by Manny Pacquiao. I had demons and they got the best of me for a while. But I think I have won already because I’m able to get back in there and do this again.”

 

Getting a world title at some point, he said, would tell the proper story to his children. He was down, but he got up. He turned his life around.

He’s still at odds with his parents and says that may never change. He won’t reveal details, but says it’s “one of the saddest things ever, to be on the outs with my Mum and my Dad.”

What they did, he said, was unforgivable.

“My parents aren’t there any more and that’s a sad situation, but I’m a father and I have a great girlfriend, a wonderful little boy and a beautiful little girl,” he says. “And I love being with them and being there for them. They’re the most important people in my life now.”

He chuckles when he’s asked what he will do if it doesn’t work out, if he no longer has it, if he’s not able to flip a switch and become the Ricky Hatton of old.

He knows it’s possible, if unlikely. He’s sharp in the gym and expects that to translate to the ring. But if it doesn’t, he’s prepared.

“Without a doubt, I’ve had the greatest win of my life, overcoming the personal demons that I have,” he said. “I’ve won this already. No matter what might happen in a fight, I am already the winner.”

June 10, 2012

Timothy Bradley talked about timing.

6-9-12

A Day With No Timeouts

Saturday was a day like no other with many world-class sporting events scheduled, including several in the New York metropolitan area. From the French Open and Euro 2012 in Europe to the Subway Series and the Adidas Grand Prix in New York City, it was a great day to be a sports fan.

Julie Jacobson/Associated Press

Manny Pacquiao told the crowd after the fight that he thought he had done enough to win, but he couldn’t knock out Bradley in the early rounds when he appeared to be dominating the bout.

It was his time. It was his fight, too.

Bradley (29-0) scored a stunning upset Saturday night over Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2), winning a split decision in the welterweight bout at the MGM Grand.

Bradley overcame Pacquiao’s advantage in speed over the first six rounds with head-rocking power that eventually left Pacquiao, a Filipino congressman, looking tired and slow.

Pacquiao moved side-to-side in an almost tireless dance for the first six rounds. But it wasn’t enough in a close fight. The judges Duane Ford and C. J. Ross scored it for Bradley, 115-113. On Jerry Roth’s scorecard, it was 115-113 for Pacquiao, who lost the World Boxing Organization’s version of the 147-pound title.

Pacquiao told the crowd that he thought he had done enough to win. But he couldn’t knock out Bradley in the early rounds when he appeared to be dominating the bout.

In the opening round, Bradley threw a mild surprise — a jab he wasn’t supposed to have. He fired it repeatedly, head-to-body and body-to-head. But it was Pacquiao who seemed to gain an edge, if not win the round, with a couple of solid lefts, his most feared punch.

Pacquiao’s left would continue to land in the second, especially when Bradley would duck to his right and drop his right hand. In the third, Bradley, increasingly wary of the left, would either back away or resort to roughhouse tactics in tying up Pacquiao.

Late in the third, Bradley appeared to stumble, almost as if he had been dazed by a quick succession of punches from Pacquiao, whose lateral movement created punches from countless angles. In the fourth, Bradley stumbled again, all in an awkward attempt to duck the lethal accuracy that Pacquiao possesses in his left hand. Bradley promised to counter with combinations. Through the first six rounds, however, he only managed to land an occasional right hand.

In the seventh, the well-conditioned and heavily muscled Bradley took on the rugged style for which he is known. He ducked down and almost went into a crablike squat. Bradley’s shaved head, which glistened under the ring’s bright lights, moved menacingly at Pacquiao, almost as if it were a weapon, which is what has often been in his career.

But a head butt from Bradley was never a factor. Bradley promised it wouldn’t be. But his conditioning and powerful right hand were there — repeatedly throughout the last six rounds.

The fight was expected to start immediately after the Miami Heat’s victory over the Boston Celtics. But Pacquiao could not be found. The ring announcer Michael Buffer introduced celebrities, current champions, former champions and the U.S. Olympic boxing team. Still, no Pacquiao. Finally, there he was, in a room other than his dressing room, on a treadmill stretching his calves in an attempt to avoid the cramping that has troubled him in his past two fights.

Throughout the week and before the opening bell Saturday night, there were questions about whether the old Pacquiao would show up. There were more questions about whether he was a fading star than there were about whether Bradley was an emerging one.

Pacquiao has always embraced distractions, which seemed to multiply around him as fast as victories, celebrity and money. He earned a reported $32 million for just two fights in 2010 alone. He played basketball, gambled, sang, starred as an action hero in Filipino films, ran for political office, won a seat in the 15th Congress of the Philippines and even interrupted training for Antonio Margarito in November 2010 to campaign for Nevada Senator Harry Reid. No matter what he did, he won. Since a loss to Erik Morales in March 2005, he went on a remarkable run of 15 successive victories.

But a sign that distractions might finally be taking a toll were suddenly evident last November in a majority decision over Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao won on two of the three scorecards, but lost points in the court of public opinion. The dominance he had displayed against Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Cotto was not there. He appeared vulnerable. He looked distracted. He was.

His trainer, Freddie Roach, said there were marital problems. He and his wife, Jinkee, nearly split before the Marquez bout on Nov. 12, also at the MGM Grand, according to Roach, who will be inducted to the International Boxing Hall of Fame on Sunday in Canastota, N.Y. Pacquiao arrived late after Jinkee refused to accompany him, according to Roach, who said he had only 10 minutes to warm up for a bout during which he fought leg cramps for a second straight bout.

“Manny’s life was going off the rails,” said his promoter, Bob Arum, who also promotes Bradley. “It isn’t now.”

Pacquiao, who admitted he had been unfaithful to Jinkee, said he has recommitted himself to his Catholic faith and his marriage. Jinkee was at his side throughout public appearances after arriving in Las Vegas from a training camp at Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Hollywood. They arrived, hand-in-hand, at the Grand Garden Arena on Saturday a couple of hours before he would step into the ring against Bradley. He also said he stopped gambling, including wagering on cockfighting, which is legal in the Philippines. He said he no longer owns the more than 1,000 roosters he raised, fought and bet on. He said he sold his interest in a Filipino casino. Pacquiao, a Celtics fan, even gave up basketball.

On this trip to Las Vegas, there were bible studies instead of late nights at the tables. Pacquiao went to mass with Jinkee and much of his entourage Saturday morning. On Friday, he knelt, put his hands together, looked up and uttered a prayer after weighing in at 147 pounds, the welterweight limit.

“There are no more distractions,” Pacquiao said. “For me, this lifestyle is better for my personality.”

But not everybody was a believer. At the weigh-in, there were questions about Pacquiao’s weight, his heaviest ever. He was at 145 pounds twice, first for Joshua Clottey in 2010 and again for Shane Mosley last May. The two-pound increase generated speculation about his readiness for the tough and chiseled Bradley. The weight was just another sign of possible slippage. In his two fights before Bradley, he averaged only 26 power punches a round, according to a CompuBox count. That’s half of the power punches, 52 a round, that he threw in five fights before beating Marquez and Mosley.

Then, there was controversy in his corner. Roach said a week ago on HBO’s 24/7 series that strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza would not be at the fight. Roach was unhappy that Ariza left camp to work with Mexican middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. By last Tuesday, however, Pacquiao decided that Ariza would work the corner.

“Manny’s call,” Roach said.

May 16, 2012          11:50 am

The Grove shopping mall in Los Angeles has banned boxer Manny Pacquiao over comments he made about gay marriage, but the boxer said he was misquoted.

“Based on news reports of statements made by Mr. Pacquiao, we have made it be known that he is not welcome at The Grove and will not be interviewed here now or in the future. The Grove is a gathering place for all Angelenos and not a place for intolerance,” the Grove said in a statement.

Officials from the Grove did not return immediate calls seeking additional comment.

In an interview with National Conservative Examiner, Pacquiao addressed President Obama’s recent endorsement of gay marriage.

“God’s words first … obey God’s law first before considering the laws of man,” Pacquiao told the Examiner. “God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married. It should not be of the same sex, so as to adulterate the altar of matrimony, like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.”

The article goes on to say that “Pacquiao’s directive for Obama calls societies to fear God and not to promote sin, inclusive of same-sex marriage and cohabitation.”

The original story quoted Leviticus 20:13, which states: “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

But the story did not quote Pacquiao has making the quotation.

Pacquiao later released a statement saying he was misquoted and denying he has animus for gay people.  “I didn’t say that, that’s a lie.… I didn’t know that quote from Leviticus because I haven’t read the Book of Leviticus yet.”

“I’m not against gay people.… I have a relative who is also gay,” the boxer insists. “We can’t help it if they were born that way. What I’m critical of are actions that violate the word of God. I only gave out my opinion that same-sex marriage is against the law of God.”

The writer of the original story also backed up Pacquiao’s account. But some media outlets attributed the quote to the boxer.

“I sincerely apologize for the confusion my column has caused. I certainly do not represent Pacquiao nor his team,” the author wrote.

May 4, 2012

Inside the Mayweather Boxing Club, where the assembled included a lawyer, a famous rapper, a celebrity chef, a girlfriend, an ex-girlfriend, a dozen boxers, a few dozen spectators and, naturally, three representatives from Habitat for Humanity, the boxing equivalent of a Batman signal flashed.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was on his way.

The focus lingered on his next bout, against Miguel Cotto at the MGM Grand on Saturday. No one mentioned the date that most weighed on their collective conscience, an anything-but-random Friday 27 days after the fight. That is when Mayweather, 35, is scheduled to report to jail for misdemeanor domestic violence and harassment charges reached in a plea bargain.

The undefeated boxer with an 18-room mansion will live inside a 10-by-6-foot cell for up to 87 days starting June 1. He will swap gloves for prison garb, marble for steel, boxing for boxed in. When Manny Pacquiao fights here in June, Mayweather is supposed to be jailed a few miles down the road.

Mayweather appeared unconcerned as he smiled into the nearest mirror and stepped inside the ring to spar, as if the sentence that awaited amounted to little more than a vacation.

“I was born for this,” Mayweather said.

“This” could mean boxing, the sport in which Mayweather has accumulated some $200 million in 42 victorious fights. “This” could mean Mayweather’s surreal lifestyle. In recent weeks, he placed a single bet for $1.3 million on Kentucky’s basketball team, sent an assistant to fetch $20,000 in lottery tickets, put his Rolls-Royce Phantom on eBay and sparred with boxers and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

“This,” Mayweather insisted, is normal, all the chaos and turbulence, even if these circumstances are without precedent. Even if preparations for this fight, while typical, serve a different purpose: to distract from the reality, jabs instead of jail.

“My life has always been a roller-coaster ride,” Mayweather said. “Seven in one bedroom. Mother on drugs. Father being shot. Dad going to prison. Never having a stable home. I know you’re talking about jail. Me going to prison in June. I’m going to do the same thing: bob and weave. That’s what I’m going to do.”

Another smile.

“Bob and weave.”

The night before, Mayweather rented a local amusement park. Friends and family gathered after midnight, in accordance with his odd schedule. (A typical dinner is consumed between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., and breakfast is eaten before bed, usually around 8 a.m. or 9 a.m. “I’m a vampire” is one of Mayweather’s new catchphrases.)

As they waited for Mayweather’s workout arrival, those who had participated in the amusement park diversion wiped sleep from their eyes. Like the champion, they found comfort here, in numbers and family and routine.

Preparations began immediately. Handlers laid out 13 matching sets of brightly colored gloves and headgear, gloves painted every color, painted with Mayweather’s face, the bottoms made to look like alligator skin. The sounds of rap on the stereo rose in volume until the gym vibrated. The room temperature nosed above 80 degrees, among the conditions mandated by Mayweather, along with beverage selection (Pepsi, water, orange Powerade). Ricki Brazil, a childhood friend, said Mayweather had already planned for his time in prison. Some 10 people are involved in carrying out those wishes and ensuring that the corporation Mayweather has become will run smoothly. Brazil’s tasks is to update the registration on each of Mayweather’s 29 cars. Others have access to his bank accounts. Still others will check on his father, uncle, children.

“Right now, he tries not to think about it, so we try not to think about it,” Brazil said. “He can block it out as long as he gets attention. As long as they’re talking about him, he’s happy. He knows he’s relevant, which means he’s doing something right.”

Inside the gym, Roger Mayweather, uncle and trainer, said he last saw his nephew this sharp years ago, before he regularly took long layoffs between fights. Roger lost his belt after a 16-month break. That his nephew battered Victor Ortiz into submission in September meant Mayweather required less time to round into form.

“When you lay off, you lose something,” Roger said. “That’s what boxing is.”

Roger spit out the word, his favorite, “boxing,” with a heavy emphasis on box. No, he was not concerned that Cotto could weigh 154 pounds at superwelterweight. “Weight ain’t never won no boxing fight! Skills pay the bills!” Yes, he believed his nephew merited mention with the boxer he considers the best ever, Sugar Ray Robinson, whether Mayweather ever fights Pacquiao or not.

The subject of jail time drew a more animated response.

“It ain’t the first time my nephew ever been in trouble,” Roger said. “He ain’t never been in no real bad trouble. And he ain’t going to no real jail. If it bothers him, I can’t see how he’s knocking these guys out. He’s knocking these guys dead. Jail? Forget jail. Cotto will see the truth. That’s boxing.”

As Mayweather pulled into his front parking spot, his personal chef, Jourdan Cha’Taun Atkinson, said the boxer scolded members of his staff who read commentary on his case. She spoke candidly of how Mayweather helped one of his drivers open a tattoo parlor in New York, that he sent Brazil to business school and that he enjoys spaghetti with turkey meat sauce, smothered chicken and rice — “basically, grandma stuff,” Atkinson said.

She tensed, however, when the subject turned to legal matters. Like others in Mayweather’s inner circle, Atkinson said Judge Melissa Saragosa acted hypocritically in delaying Mayweather’s sentence for this fight, so he could earn hundreds of millions for the city, the state and, of course, himself.

Mayweather faced 34 years in jail on felony charges of domestic violence, coercion and grand larceny for an incident in which prosecutors claim that he grabbed a former girlfriend — who is also the mother of three of his children — threatened to kill her and make her boyfriend “disappear,” twisted her arm and punched her head. The sentence: 180 days in jail, 90 suspended, credit for 3 served; 100 hours community service; $2,500 fine.

Oh, and counseling. “Going great!” Mayweather said with unexpected enthusiasm.

Inside the ring, a blow to the hip briefly silenced Mayweather. He retreated to a corner and instructed HBO to shut off its cameras.

Activity resumed. Mayweather moved to the heavy bag, only to again be interrupted when another fighter was knocked out. The fighter lay flat on his back, eyes closed, as Mayweather and the rapper 50 Cent joined the chorus of raucous cheers. “Welcome to the doghouse!” Mayweather shouted. “Where anyone can get it!”

Mayweather turned back to the heavy bag, then the speed bag, and his punches provided a drumbeat — tap, tap, tap, tap; thud, thud, thud, thud. Mayweather’s hype man added words to the soundtrack: “Right now, Champ! Get it, Champ! You ain’t got nothing but time! Nothing but time on your hands!”

No one seemed to catch the double meaning.

His oldest sister, Deltricia Howard, said it was impossible not to think about the sentence. She picked her words carefully, said she felt sorry for both her brother and his former girlfriend.

“You’re supposed to learn,” Howard said. “You get all the red flags, and if you don’t pay attention to them, this is what happens. It’s my brother. I wish he wasn’t in this situation. But sometimes you see stuff. So you feel bad. But you don’t feel bad.”

She added, “Controversy is part of his life.”

Mayweather required a lengthy hearing to obtain his license from the Nevada Athletic Commission for this fight. The commission granted the license, but with six conditions, including no further arrests and full compliance with the judge’s order.

“We’ve had all kinds of issues over the years in regard to licenses,” said Keith Kizer, the commission’s executive director. “But nothing where a guy is basically going to jail.”

Back in the ring, Mayweather banished the sentence if not from his mind than from his gym. He talked and punched, talked and punched, with 50 Cent both among the crowd and blaring from the speakers. “Uh-huh!” the hype man continued. “Good! Good! All day! Keeping it coming! That’s right, Champ!”

Finished, Mayweather retreated to his locker room, where he instructed one assistant to fetch the clothes from his trunk, and turn the car around and on. Sitting on a bench, surrounded by his entourage, Mayweather turned reflective. He said he hoped to repair his relationship with his father. He said he wanted only one more megafight after this one. He said he cared about his legacy, the pay-per-view and gate records, the envious financial fight structure, the zero in the loss column. He said the boxing public would appreciate him more in 20 years.

“No one has a perfect life,” Mayweather said. “I’m thankful. To whoever is reading this story, thanks for the support. And if you don’t know me, you know, Google me.”
