EOTR BOXING HEADLINES
An interesting overview of Mayweather Jr.'s talents. Nicely overwrites the space in my memory that was used to watch the last All Access episode.
A selection of controversial fights of the past are new in the Fight Vault as of last week or so, ready for EOTR fan judges to score them. Enjoy!

Golovkin vs. Stevens Preview (HBO Boxing)
Golovkin vs. Stevens - Madison Square Garden Promo
Some Curtis Stevens footage here, with Max Kellerman narration, in which Max supposedly spills private details on glove sensors, in development by HBO, that measure punching power. Early tests on the sensors were thought to be failing because Curtis Stevens' punching power was off the charts.
Stevens will have his hands full on November 2nd, when he battles heavy favorite Gennady Golovkin.
Robert Hoyle is familiar with media attention regarding a controversial decision. Remember Hoyle scored Pacquiao vs. Marquez III 114-114. Now that the dust has settled, 114-114 seems a respectable card for that fight. He's also on tap to judge Marquez vs. Bradley tonight, which could be another tough one.
At least in London anyway. A sparing session with a future romantic partner seems like a great idea. I'm not joking, how else are you going to know if they fight dirty? Such knowledge is important if you're considering becoming sparing partners in life.

Iron Mike handles a dumb question with politeness.
Cast a vote for EOTR Fight of the Year Candidates when you save a new card. Also vote for: upset of the year and knockout of the year. Fun stuff, I'll publish candidates later in the year. These check-boxes are on your old cards too, if you feel like updating them.
If you think of other obvious annotations I should add, let me know in the comments...
Daquan Arnett gives Miguel Zuniga a boxing lesson on June 1 in Sunrise, Florida.
Surprising to no one: Floyd Mayweather Jr tops the highest earning athletes in the US list put out by Sports Illustrated.
It's interesting to note how far Floyd is beyond the second place earner. Floyd's estimated earnings: 90 million dollars. Second place: 56.5 million (for LeBron James). The only massive gap is between the first and second place earners, the differences between the amounts between tenth and second are miniscule in comparison.
