Floyd Mayweather Weakness #2
pressure on the ropes, might be key for Manny Pacquiao


Staying off the ropes has always been key for Mayweather to win. I know, it's nothing new, but I mention it because there's a few things that always happen when Floyd is on the ropes

1. He get's smothered.
2. Defaults to the shell (shoulder roll) or high guard (leaving body open)
3. Loses ring dominance

All 3 of those factors result in Mayweather not throwing punches and he doesn't throw many to begin with. If he's constantly defending and avoiding shots, there's a chance for him to be out hustled.

It doesn't matter what the connect percentage is, he avoid them all, but if it stops Floyd from exchanging, it's a win

Lot's of fighters have been successful with this tactic, but burn out in the end. I believe Maidana was the most successful (in the first fight) 

Mayweather Vs Maidana 1
Mayweather (left) Maidana (right)

Round 1: 16/33 | 26/100
Round 2: 21/35 |19/68 
Round 3: 20/34 | 22/83
Round 4: 21/35 |19/68 
Round 5:  8/23 | 20/77
Round 6: 19/35 | 23/85

this is what I've been saying from the get go manny pacquiao does not whither he has energy for days if floyd is against the ropes and we all know Floyd don't fire back off the ropes maybe some pillow pop shots here and there, but Manny just won't stand in front of him and throw combinations he was step to the left side and right side hitting Floyd from all angles if floyd is against the ropes he's going to make Floyd Mayweather feel like he's in a fucking blender remember these comments folks I know talk is cheap I know, but Manny Pacquiao has all the tools in his arsenal to defeat Floyd its going to be a beautiful sight to behold and a great day for boxing Manny Pacquiao outclasses the self-proclaimed greatest boxer in the world, the days keep on Dragging but the day is almost here

The blurred lines verdict is a threat to all musicians

I believe Pharrell Williams says it best, you can't own feelings or emotions

+Dennis Perkins IV I agree, I've had this mentality since 2000. The difference between inspiration and theft when it comes to samplers is permission.

No matter how you cut it, if my sound is on your material and you don't have my permission, you are in the wrong.

Jay-Z Ordered To Pay Half Of His Royalties
For Copyright Infringement

With Timbaland as the producer, I can't say I'm surprised as he has a history of using uncleared samples.

What Was Infringed Upon?
The melody of Spoerri 's song On The Way (1978). It appears to be lifted right from the original.

How It Was Used
Check out "Versus" from Jay - z's album "Magna Carta Holy Grail."

How Much Is Due?
50% of Jay-Z's Royalties. As Michael Scott would say, “that's a lot of guacamole”.

First Jay-Z lied about the use of Bruno Spoerri's music, then later confessed.

How This Could Have Been Avoided

“All it would have needed was a call or an email to the company and I think it would have been relatively cheap" (Bruno Spoerri).

Jay and Timbaland tried settling out of court for $25,000, that's chump change. Bruno stuck to his guns. Seriously, what the hell were they thinking with that bullshit offer? The man is a veteran, he has lawyers 25,000 would barely cover their fee, if at all.

Floyd Mayweather's New Slogan
hard work medication

I kid, but seriously, what do you think about Floyd working with Alex Ariza and Angel Heredia?

Full post -

I don't understand the benefit of associating with either one of these guys aside from drawing attention.

Pacquiao Camp

According to Michael Koncs, Manny Pacquiao wanted Floyd Mayweather to agree to a $5 million fine for a failed drug test in which Mayweather declined.

Leonard Ellerbe's Response (paraphrased)

“The deal was negotiated thoroughly by his promoter [Bob Arum of Top Rank] on behalf of Manny and well documented in the media for quite some time.

“If this moron didn’t convey his fighter’s wishes when the negotiation was going on, that’s their problem. This is a lame-ass attempt to generate publicity.”

He has a point

Blurred Lines: Pharrell Williams & Robin Thicke SUED!
That's right, it's time to pay up
Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke this last Tuesday were ordered to pay 7.4 million to the Gaye family for controversial "Blurred Lines" song.


It's tragic because on one hand you don't want to stifle creativity and on the other you definitely don't want to advocate theft.

Often when coming up with musical ideas we, producers in general, tend to look to the past for inspiration. In these moments we'll hum a line or play a riff similar to something we've heard before and with a few changes - to this thing or that - "we make it our own". There's nothing wrong with listening to what others have previously done and to strive for something similar, but there's all sorts of shit wrong with flat out plagiarism! Is that what happened in this case? Personally I don't believe so.

While Pharrell Williams could have done a better job at making "Blurred Lines" a little more distinctive perhaps the bigger mistake here was letting a Vicodin infused and out of control Robin Thicke sue a prominent family of a well loved singer before anything was actually even wrong?

According to the testimony that I have been able to read, the written notation of Gaye's copyright and subsequent NEW recording based on the written notation "was a Frankenstein" of the actual released audio recording of the song. I was not in the court room. I can only base my thoughts upon what has been made public. But from what I can tell from published testimony, the version that we the public heard is not identical to the written version that was filed with the Copyright Office. This is why I have a problem with the case. What the jury saw (notation wise), would have differed from what the jury could have heard, had the original song be let in.

I would love to see that copy and match it up with a Hal Leonard version (which would have been based on the recording) and see what is what.

Great debate by the way. I think that it is a very important topic that is far from over.

Who Hits Harder Floyd Mayweather Or Manny Pacquiao?

The Answer......It depends on who you ask and the opponents pain threshold. More specifically, where they received the blows.

★ Shane Mosley says Pacquiao hits harder

★ De La Hola says they both pack the same amount of power

Who do you think packs more power in their punch?

Kev you make no sense ! Why would a person need to ask that if he had seen enough and watched the fights ? Only a hater would be desperate to see mayweather get knocked out like you said ! Why would anyone be "desperate" for that ?

Excellent Parking S!@# Bag!
this is bs that gets to me

What is it about parking that is so difficult? There's fu!@#$% lines telling you exactly where to go, how do you !@#$ this up?

Of all the empty spaces in this lot, you decided to park unevenly between two. The more the marier?.. Strong work

I just want to get from Point A to Point B without encountering any idiots - Is that too much to ask?
