Pretty in Pink

We've got former light heavy champ Glen Johnson booked for this week. I'm trying to convince him to live up to his Road Warrior nickname and get on 95 to come to the studio to co-host. We'll see if he feels like making the journey. Even if he doesn't, we'll have him for the last segment.

I'm also looking forward to speaking with former heavyweight champ Pinklon Thomas. He was on with us about 2 years ago and is great to talk to. He's got a rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-redemption story. Blew everything he had, including his career on drugs. Got sober and is now launching Project P.I.N.K. (Pride In Neighborhood Kids) to help at risk youth.

Pink is one of the good guys and considering all he's been through, is a perfect candidate to help kids stay off the streets and do something positive.

In fact, there are quite a few boxers and former fighters working with kids and for different causes that we'll talk about. Boxers get a bad rep, but guys like Andre Berto work with the Boys and Girls Club, Oscar De La Hoya has donated tons of cash and built a youth center, etc.

Pink and Glen will take your questions so call or email in.

Now that the Berto/Mosley fight is off the only logical fight for Floyd Mayweather is to fight Shane Mosley or Paul Williams.

So if Floyd again ducks Shane or Williams which I assume he will.

When will Mayweather fight a legitimate Welterweight no more making 135 pound boxers move up to 147 because Pacquiao is not doing that anymore as he is fighting at Welterweight and he will be fighting Joshua Clottey who Floyd hasn't even fought.

Could a Mosley vs Mayweather or Williams vs Mayweahter bout be agreed upon for March 13, 2010?

and which fight would HBO promote for March 13 either Pacquaio/Clottey fight or the Mosley/Mayweather or Mayweather/Williams fight?
