    That's incredible actually - how far back do we have to go to find one?
    Jim McLarnin in 1934?

    So Mayweather and Manny finally get down on May 2. Will be the highest grossing fight ever with HBO and Showtime sharing the PPV.
    Busy sports day with the Kentucky Derby also May 2.

    Carl Frampton won again Saturday night - some big big fights coming up for him over the next year or two - genuinely exciting prospect that he may unify the super-bantamweight division.
    If a dog weighs under 50 lbs it's a cat, and cats are useless.

    Limerick man Irish Andy Lee defending his belt this Saturday night in Brooklyn....NBC continues trying to help make boxing a sport again as they put it on national tv.
    Al Michaels, Marv Albert, Bob Costas and Sugar Ray Leonard all on hand providing analysis for the Peacock network and their combined ages are about 700.

    Would love to see Andy win. He is a proper Irish fighter!!

    Just heard, maybe incorrectly, Cork's Mike Perez is due to fight Povetkin in May for a version of the World Title. I know the Cork-Cuban was fairly hyped up, but he seems to have a chance. Povetkin is an average fighter who bottled it against Kiltschko, but have big money in his corner.

    Thought it was nbc. I could be wrong. Starts at 830. Not sure how many fights in front. This guy he is fighting wants the title back....gave it up to take care of his uncle.....lee not favored.

    Looked very like Andy was a bit off the boil with al the messing around. I had it a draw.

    On Friday there was an even weirder fight here in Russia with the lucky loser Lebedev getting a gifted decision. Knocked down as well but oddly the knockdown was retroactively discounted. Opponent, French-Congolese, seemed to hold back in the last 4 rounds. Lebedev is heavily backed but very basic.

    Had it as a draw as well, some turn around all the same considering the first 6 rounds

    Andy was a bit unlucky I thought - the second knock down was as a result of Quillin standing on Andy's foot, a mistake the referee acknowledged - which in hindsight, cost Andy the fight.
