Blind Item #1

This now aging A+ list athlete in his corner of the entertainment world is making a money grab. He is going to announce a big event and ask to be paid a guarantee upfront. He will then bail on the event before it occurs, but keep the money.

Mayweather training for UFC competition. Dude has got bad hands that can't take damage from his years of boxing. With 4 Oz gloves it makes no sense.

Sounds like Mayweather. There was a story last week that he's been training in MMA, but he'd get destroyed if his opponent is allowed to grapple. He's also mercenary enough that he'd take the money and run without shame if someone's stupid enough to put up a guarantee without strings attached.

How charming. And ethical. And scrupulous. And trustworthy. I cld go on and on but i believe you'all get the picture.

Its Mayweather. He will try to get as much money out of it and then pretend to be injured. I would too because he will die in there.

It's only ever been about the money.

In the UFC, the fighters don't get paid if they don't show up for the fight. There may be small exceptions to this, but not usually. Mayweather would have to start the fight, then find a quick way out.

Mayweather should use the money to hire a reading teacher.

I've been in and around combat Martial Arts since the Eighties then MMA, Whatever deal get gets, Mayweather will not place one toe in the Octagon.

@Goddess—

What event is OJ going to host? A murder?

If he never reads again, I think he’ll be alright. I’m sure he pays people to read for him. He’s not the first possibly illiterate celebrity/athletete. I’ll take stupid and ridiculously wealthy over literate and a bit above median income any day of the week.

This is not the business to try and stiff someone - you might end up permanently stiff.

T. W. said...

@Anitra - the poor man can't read his own name. He won't have money in the future if he keeps relying on others to read for him.

Juliaph said...

Not me. One of the most precious gifts in the world is the ability to read.

My guess is Hulk Hogan at the “All In” bullet club show.
