No Megan Fox for Transformers 3 [May 26]
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (May 14, 2010)
Jabbar says that NBA should raise its minimum age for entry into the league from 19 to 21 years old, he says that young players arrive unprepared for both on-and-off challenges. He also said that Lebron James would have had 'very polished skills' if he went to college, he would have learned much more through experiences that would help him as a player- but he was already a total gem without a single minute in the college court, in which he is an exemption.Not having been to college but have already his innate gifts ready for the NBA. Jabbar comes from an era when men were men, no fancy tattoes, wearing of ski goggles (no Oakley yet in their time) for eye protection. However, if staying out
of the NBA until age 21 means more awesome leather jackets, then lets get to work on whatever paper works is necessary to make that change.
Bob Arum speaks out (May 14, 2010)
Bob Arum just confirmed that Pacquiao will definitely fight this coming November- though he's not certain who Manny's opponent will be. Manny's promoter says that he wants to make happen what Filipino fans want to see; to determine once and for all who the better fighter is- between Pacman and Mayweather. But if it does not push through, he might use Antonio Margarito- one of his fighters, to face Pacman. At the moment, he is more focused on Pacman/Mayweather; since it is what the fans have been longing to see. So boxing fans, all we have to do is to patiently wait for this to happen... :D

Our very own Brandon "The Truth" Vera vs Polish Krzysztof Soszynski. Brandon has an impressive record of 11-5 in mixed martial arts and won 2 of his last MMA fights. In his last fight he has shown that he was in great shape by defeating Mike Platt by TKO. Soszynski has an 18-18-1 MMA record in which 6 of them he won consecutively; including 2 submissions of the night awards. So, certainly Vera will have his hands full on trying to stop the 'Polish Experiment' Soszynski. In any case I'm still with Vera, I hope he does well in UFC 102- which would be held in Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon, USA on August 29, 2009...
