Floyd Mayweather, Jr. put a halt to what would surely have been a black eye on boxing by taking the fight out of the judges' hands. I almost fell out of my chair when I heard that two of the judges gave all but one round to Mayweather. I actually had Hatton ahead by one point at the time of the KO, although I wouldn't argue with a one or even two point Mayweather lead.
However, eight rounds to one is criminal and the commission should sit down with those judges, ask them to watch a video tape and explain their scoring, just like what is supposedly happening in NY after the Cassamayor - Santa Cruz fight.
On the show, I apparently ended my losing streak of picking the wrong guy. Not only did I get the winner right, you'll recall that I said it would come via 10th round TKO. The prophecies continue as I picked every NFL game correctly this Sunday in my football pool. First time I've ever run the table.
Lastly, we'll have another "Best of Through the Ropes" show this week. I have an unavoidable travel commitment on Thursday. Starting next week, I'm back every Thursday with a new show. Stick with me. I've got big plans for Through the Ropes in 2008 and hope that you'll be there with me.
