Floyd Mayweather sees a little of himself in fan at San Antonio press stop
Gonzales is a fighter worth seeing again. The junior middleweight fight between Willie Nelson (21-1-1, 12 KO) and Luciano Cuello (32-3, 16 KO) was a bit of a disappointment, fizzling in the later rounds. Cuello lost a split decision to Nelson, who benefitted from fighting on U.S. soil against the tough Argentinean, who would have won in his home country.

Day of Peace: Boxing in Camden
With hundreds gathered at Eighth and Ramona Gonzalez Streets on Saturday for the Camden Boxing Academy’s second annual tournament, the 7-year-old from Pennsauken put on a show, landing jabs and right hooks on his trainer in a practice bout. He walked off to applause, posing for pictures and beaming in the afternoon sun. But something else appeared to be on his mind. Gambino was wearing a shirt that showed a picture of his father; the phrase R.I.P. Dad had been shaved onto the back of his head. That’s because on May 21, Gambino’s father, Gabriel Crespo, 27, was shot and killed near the intersection of 25th Street and River Avenue at 10 p.m. – Camden’s 24th homicide of the year.
“After my five more fights, guess what?” Mayweather asked the crowd. “I think after 49-0, we may stay in this sport a little longer. This Sept. 14, its just another walk in the park.” The nine-day tour concludes today in Los Angeles at LA Live.
