That’s my boy. Grand Rapids, MI – Ottawa Hills High School down the block from my home for 25 years. GO GET HIM, FLOYD
“He behaved like a man, what can I say,” Atlas recollected to fellow analyst Joe Tessitore. “He came over, extended his hand and asked me if I’d shake it and said, ‘You’re not still mad at me, are you? I wish you wouldn’t be.’ … I give him credit for showing a gentleman’s side.” via […]
Floyd Mayweather Jr. will be facing a snarf who had the nerve to insult Papa Mayweather. Uh-oh, Guerrero. You are fucked! 43-0. Grand Rapids, MI. GO FLOYD!
