BETTING FRENZY IN LAS VEGAS

 

Pacquiao-Floyd bout
ignites betting frenzy in Vegas
By Bev Llorente, ABS-CBN News North America

 

Boxing enthusiasts are keeping a close watch on race and sports books in Las Vegas casinos as the hotly anticipated May 2 mega-bout between top fighters Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. approaches.
Race and sports books are projecting a huge one-day haul on May 2, with some estimating that they will earn as much as $80 million in one night.

CARS STAY CLEAN WHILE FLOYD TRAINS

 

The best evidence the boss was around was the white Ferrari 458 Spider parked in front between two equally white Rolls Royce's, top off and gleaming in the late afternoon sun. While Floyd Mayweather Jr. worked inside, a man with a spray bottle and cloth worked to make sure there wasn't an offending particle of dust on the ride the fighter would pilot home.
This was a relatively light day of work at the gym Mayweather owns in this city's Chinatown just west of the famous Las Vegas Strip. Light, that is, unless you consider that Mayweather would spar four six-minute rounds with a tough young lefty, barely stopping for a few breaths between rounds.

STAR'S NEW STAR WINS BY TKO

 

Star Boxing's newest Light Heavyweight prospect, Yuniesky Gonzalez, 16-0 12KO's, remained undefeated as he demolished veteran Brad Austin with a 3rd round stoppage at The Belle of Baton Rouge Casino, Baton Rouge, LA on Saturday night.
It was the first fight for Gonzalez under the Star Boxing banner and he didn't disappoint the local fans by displaying the speed and power which makes him one of the top Light Heavyweight prospects in the world. Gonzalez dropped Austin 3 times, once in each round, before the referee finally called an end to the bout in the 3rd round.
Promoter Joe DeGuardia had this to say about Gonzalez' performance, "We are pleased to have signed Yuniesky to a long term promotional agreement. We have high hopes for him and congratulate him on his victory Saturday. We know that the major networks are interested in him and it is a hot division. He continues to impress and he is ready to take on the best that the Light Heavyweight division has to offer.
Yuniesky has all the tools to become a world champion and we seek the best possible fight for him in the very near future".
Yuniesky Gonzalez is an elite former Cuban amateur living and competing here in the United States. He is trained by highly respected trainer Orlando Cuellar and managed by Michael Luzbeth.
