Tyson, Jones slam Mayweather: Belts are \”like drugs.\”

Published

Two legendary boxers have hit back at Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s recent rant about the boxing having too many belts.
Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. stressed their stand on the issue as they will have a special belt as a prize for their exhibition match, the \”Frontline Battle Belt,” on November 28.
\”I\’m sorry, but it\’s like drugs. I can\’t say no. You offer me a title, and you got me. It doesn\’t mean nothing to people like him, maybe, but it meant the world to me,\” said Jones.
Meanwhile, Tyson agreed to the statement of his opponent by saying, “he said it all. It\’s like drugs.”
For them, championship belts are the driving force of boxing. Of course, all boxers are dreaming to have belts wrapped around their waist.
Having that opportunity to fight in a title match will add motivation to any boxer. Pride and legacy will always be the priority of many boxers, not just the cash involved.
Jones made an example of their era that wanted all the belts while slamming Mayweather as well.
“First of all, I don\’t give a damn what nobody says don\’t get anything to do with me. I do what I do. My business is my business. I don\’t care what nobody else says. This does not have anything to do with him. So he stays over there in his lane do what he do, let me do what I do,” he said.
\’Secondly, when I was fighting, I wasn\’t like them. I went and got every belt possible that I could get in my weight class at the time. Mike did the same thing. We come from the old school. We want every belt you got.”
“I don\’t care what kind of belt it is. It could be the Joe Patti Seafood belt. I want that. I don\’t care. If you have a belt in my weight class, in my prime, I wanted that. So you think right now, you want to see me perform you put a belt on the line,” said Jones on an interview with Showtime. [Quotation from daily online.
Jones and Tyson have taken it seriously. For them, a belt is everything. It has your honor, pride, and legacy.

Jordan Poole wins it for the Dubs, goes 2-0 in season series vs. Memphis 

Published

on

In a much-anticipated NBA rivals week, Golden State faced off against the gritty Memphis Grizzlies and Jordan Poole may have caused Stephen Curry to get ejected, but he bounced back by hitting the game-winner for the Warriors. Up by two with less than two minutes left, Poole decided to release a 30-footer off a huge offensive rebound by Donte DiVincenzo with still 12 seconds left on the shot clock. Curry, who was asking for the ball, got frustrated on the shot that he threw his mouthpiece on the floor while going back to defense and with the referee in front of him, the two-time MVP got slapped with a technical and ejection in a clutch-situation game. But despite missing their best player, Klay Thompson made a huge triple off Poole's assist to give the Warriors up with 14.1 seconds. Brnadon Clark though, tied the game off a beautiful setup from Ja Morant. Thompson missed the following shot but the Warriors grabbed an offensive rebound that paved the way to an inbound game-winning play as Poole went backdoor for the layup. He finished with 21 points while Thompson had 24. Curry top scored with 34 points. With the win, the Warriors are now 2-0 against the Grizzlies in the regular season.
