Floyd Mayweather calls Jim Lampley a strip club regular and a racist

When it comes to his opponents, Floyd Mayweather has never been afraid to trade a little trash talk in the days and weeks leading up to his fights. After all, the guy can say just about anything he wants because he knows he has the goods to back up any outlandish comment he might decide to make. The latest victim of Mayweather’s verbal jabs is boxing commentator Jim Lampley.

On not giving Black boxers enough credit:

Even a guy like Jim Lampley, he praises Kelly Pavlik — who has won some good fights, he beat Jermain Taylor twice, we have to give him credit for that — but they talk about Kelly Pavlik, a white fighter, like he’s the second coming. Or they go crazy over Manny Pacquiao. But I’m a black fighter. Is it racial? Absolutely. They praise white fighters, they praise Hispanic fighters, whatever. But black fighters, they never praise.

On why this is the first time that he’s publicly talked about this:

I’ve noticed it for a long time but I couldn’t say anything because I had to do business with them. I’ll still do business with them, but I’m done holding my tongue. I think HBO is great. But their announcers are full of shit.”

On commentator Jim Lampley’s hypocrisy:

I’ve seen Jim Lampley in the same strip club as me before. They always want to talk about me going to strip clubs, but they don’t want to talk about that. He caught a court case himself, too. But when they catch a case, all they do is take them off the air a couple weeks, then it’s over.”

We’re begging you FOX, pleeeease bring back Celebrity Boxing.

Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys are about to go primetime



No, not that Primetime.

Terrell Owens is about to be in hog heaven. HBO will be following the Dallas Cowboys during their preseason training camp for a five-part “Hard Knocks” series. We all remember what happened the last time the Cowboys were the subjects of the documentary, don’t we? It was the last year of the pathetic Dave Campo era and the show focused more on the Boys’ trips to Sea World than sweating it out in the trenches. Dallas went on to complete its third consecutive 5-11 season following the taping.

But that was then and this is now and the star power is just too great for HBO to ignore. Instead of watching Quincy Carter warming up his spaghetti string arm and Emmitt Smith in his pre-Dancing With the Stars days, we’re talking about a lineup that could consist of T.O. – f he can break away from the porn scene long enough to train – Pacman Jones, Tony Romo and, of course, random special appearances by Jessica Simpson, Joe Simpson and Jerry Jones. This has “Reality TV Emmy” written all over it.

Get your popcorn ready.
