Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather fight announced for June 6 and Twitter had some thoughts

Retired former pound-for-pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr. will step back into the ring on June 6 for an exhibition bout with YouTuber Logan Paul at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. 

It’s a boxing match that nobody necessarily asked for but will happen. And it’s certain that there will be a lot of eyeballs on this fight as the undefeated 44-year-old will give up six inches in height and some considerable size to his 26-year-old opponent, who has an 0-1 in professional boxing matches.

The long-rumored boxing match was originally slated for Feb. 20 but was postponed indefinitely. It has now been rescheduled for June as details on the exhibition continue to trickle out. 

Mayweather was last seen in a boxing ring on New Year’s Eve 2018, when he scored a first-round TKO against Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout. He last competed as a professional in 2017 against MMA superstar Conor McGregor and stopped him in the 10th round to improve to 50-0. His opponent in June will, by far, have the least boxing experience than any of his previous opponents. 

Paul is a massive celebrity who made a name for himself on YouTube but has very little boxing experience. He’s had one professional fight and one exhibition, both against fellow YouTuber KSI. The 2018 exhibition ended in a majority draw while KSI won the rematch in November 2019 with a six-round split decision.

It’s clear that this fight has less to do with being competitive than being an entertaining way for both Paul and Mayweather to make money. 

Also on the card: former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson, who’s expected to fight another former athlete or celebrity.

Wizards’ Scott Brooks pokes fun at LeBron James with play-in tournament comments

Wizards' Scott Brooks pokes fun at LeBron James with play-in tournament comments

The Wizards closed the 2020-21 NBA regular season with a torrid stretch. They were 17-6 in their final 23 games and went from a likely lottery team to a participant in the NBA’s inaugural play-in tournament.

Washington finished its climb up the standings Sunday. It defeated the Hornets 115-110 to secure eighth place in the Eastern Conference, which is a win-and-in spot in the conference’s four-team tournament.

Under the old playoff format, the Wizards would’ve clinched the No. 8 seed and guaranteed themselves a spot in the posteason with Sunday’s win. They would have started playing for their lives in a seven-game series, not a one- or two-game set.

Wizards coach Scott Brooks saw that as an opportunity to poke fun at the play-in tournament and LeBron James’ recent comments about it.

“I’m with the King,” Brooks said. “Who created this play-in thing? Whoever did that, they need to be fired.”

Seconds later, Brooks affirmed that he was just kidding. He was paraphrasing James’ comments from May 2 when the Lakers star said that “whoever came up with that s— needs to be fired.”

Unlike James, Brooks thinks the play-in tournament is a net positive for the NBA, despite his team finishing eighth in the East.

“I love this [format]. It created so much excitement the last two weeks and, as we all know, any time you can create excitement and meaningful games in the last 10 games of the season is great for everyone involved,” Brooks said. “Fans, TV partners, everybody. I love it. Even though we’re not the 8-seed, I still love it.”

The play-in tournament gave fringe playoff teams like the Wizards incentive to compete later into the season. Brooks is right about that. Now, it’s a matter of whether the on-court product will match the late-season chase to make (or avoid) the tournament.

With stars like Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Jayson Tatum, Ja Morant, Domantas Sabonis and one of James or Damian Lillard guaranteed to participate in the play-in, there is a good chance it will live up to the hype.

Angels’ Shohei Ohtani adds to highlight reel with go-ahead HR in 9th off one of MLB’s top closers

Angels: Albert Pujols release about giving Shohei Ohtani more ABs, moving Jared Walsh to 1B

Matt Barnes was one out away from sealing a Red Sox victory when Angels DH Shohei Ohtani stepped into the box.

It was a mano a mano battle between one of baseball’s best pitchers and the emerging two-way superstar.

Ohtani won the battle.

He hit a monster two-run home run that curled around the Pesky Pole at Fenway Park to give the Angels a 6-5 lead in the top of the ninth inning Sunday. LA went on to win by that score.

Teeing off against Barnes is no easy feat. Before Ohtani batted in the ninth, Barnes had allowed two hits and no runs in his previous 8 2/3 innings. For the season, he was averaging 15.6 strikeouts per nine innings and had allowed just one home run in 18 appearances. At one point, he had a negative FIP, something that is unheard of. 

But Ohtani managed to get the best of him Sunday and add another highlight to his superb season.

Ohtani’s homer was his 12th in 2021, tying him for the MLB lead with the Braves’ Ronald Acuna Jr. and the Mariners’ Mitch Haniger. His 29 RBIs are tied for the Angels’ team lead with Jared Walsh. His .597 slugging percentage is second on the team only to Mike Trout.

Ohtani has been spectacular as a pitcher as well. He has thrown 25 2/3 innings over five outings, with a sparkling 2.10 ERA and 14 strikeouts per nine.

In short, he is one of the game’s most electric players right now. Barnes knows that.
