Manny PacquiaLooks like the self-proclaimed “fight of the century” between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather not happening. Their promoters disagree over blood testing. Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter, agreed to have the fighter give urine as part of the drug testing but Mayweather’s camp wants both fighters to give blood as they do in Olympic-style drug testing. Pacquiao has said he has an issue with giving blood and that doing so right before a fight will weaken him. Apparently it’s less than a teaspoon of blood though, so not sure this is a really good argument. It’s hard to imagine them not working this out as the fighters could make between $30-$40 million (depending on tv sales).


All eyes will be on the big Christmas showdown between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers, or to put it more precisely, the big showdown between Kobe Bryant (Lakers) and Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James (Cavaliers).  Expect a lot of “who’s better”, Kobe vs LeBron, this Christmas Day. Tune in Friday night 5:00 ET on ABC.
