Floyd Mayweather, BJ Penn, Donald Trump & Mariano Rivera News: 5/4, Vol. 135, 3rd Edition

Take my heart, take my life as a living sacrifice…all my dreams, all my plans, Lord I place them in your hands….I give myself away!  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

Mariano Rivera tears his ACL
The world of boxing will turn their pupils to the city of Las Vegas as undefeated Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, with a record of 42-0 with 28 KO’s will duke it out against Miguel Cotto with a record of 37-2 and 30 KO’s, to try to snatch Cotto’s WBA junior middleweight title on Pay-Per-View.  ESPN’s boxing writer Dan Rafael is relying on his predictions and stated “I expect Mayweather to be very sharp after a relatively short layoff. Cotto will come to fight, as always, but the speed will be too much. Mayweather stops him around the 10th round”
