Mayweather taking advantage or sucker punching?

Now that the Mayweather/Ortiz fight has ended, let the media frenzy begin. Seconds after Ortiz and his hug efforts went crashing to the canvas, you could practically feel the world stop and express the approval, or disapproval, of the two-punch knockout.

The pre-fight meeting was just a taste of what would unfold on Saturday.

Ortiz fans and Mayweather haters are crying foul, but in the end, it was a legal combo that put Ortiz on his back.

The coming hours and days will show that boxing will still find its way into the ESPN headlines while the UFC is still around. Whether the WBC wanted it to happen this way, or not, doesn’t really matter.

Winners of the day? Boxing fans and the media, because it gives em something to talk about in these coming days and years to come. Oh, and Camp Mayweather.

Much Props: Chris Johnson’s Contract and The Jags’ Classy Move

Tennessee-┬áIt nearly took all of pre-season for the Titans’ and running back Chris Johnson to come to an agreement, but the deal has finally been made.

Chris Johnson has reason to celebrate off the field.

The Florida native held out until there was only a few days left in the pre-season. The larger contract he had been waiting for came in the sum of $53 million with his 4-year extension, with $30 million of the contract guaranteed.

Johnson has led the league in rush yards for the past three season, with him racking up 1,364 yards this past year.

CJ28 showed the rest of the league that if you hold out long enough, you can get the money you think you deserve. He had numbers to back his claims and got his desired contract.

Much Props.

After spending two seasons with the New England Patriots, the Jaguars have decided to sign Taylor to a one-day deal in order to retire the running back as a Jag.

Taylor rushed for nearly 12,000 yards in his career and tallied 66 touchdowns to go along with 7 seasons of at least a thousand yards.

The classy move by the Jags should show everyone that this game is more than one-field battles and contract negotiations. Thank you, Jags.

Much Props.
