I'm a big boxing fan. There's a fight on Saturday in Vegas between Floyd Mayweather and Ricky Hatton. Because both of them are undefeated and one of them is black and the other is white, it is being heavily hyped (even though, I would argue, Floyd is about a million times better).
Anyway, I got in my car the other day and turned on AM sports radio. One of Floyd's supporters was being interviewed about the fight. He was doing the typical boxing thing and hyping up his guy as much as he could, saying: "Floyd Mayweather is the best pound for pound fighter in the world...Ricky Hatton can't touch Floyd, Floyd's just too quick...Mayweather's gonna knock Hatton out".
You know when you get in halfway through a radio interview and they don't tell you who is talking and the whole time you're trying to figure it out and can't believe they're not telling you? This was one of those times.
At first I thought it was Roger Mayweather, Floyd's uncle and trainer. But then I thought it might be Floyd's dad - who happens to be named Floyd Mayweather Sr.
Finally, they said who it was and it wasn't Floyd's uncle or his dad. It was Floyd Mayweather. Irwin Handleman couldn't believe it. In fact, Handleman found it quite funny.
