Floyd Mayweather is one of the biggest pay-per-view attractions of all time and one of a very elite group of athletes to see their career earnings nose above the $1bn mark. A shrewd businessman and the greatest boxer of his generation — if not all time — Mayweather has been listed as the highest paid athlete in the world four times by the American business magazine Forbes. Mayweather is so rich that he even changed his boxing identity to reflect his staggering wealth.

Swells hit the Puerto Escondido sandbars at Zicatela Beach in such a way that the waves jack up in size, which is often emphasised by a backwash. Magazine photos of this place are misleading – the waves close-out often and the paddle-out can be severe. Usually the rights break best. The wave is fickle, and will often be blown out by 11am. There’s large numbers of skilled surfers in the water hoping for the bomb that stays open long enough to escape. Despite all this, it’s still a year-round Mecca for big barrel hunters!

Fleck released a video of the announcement on Twitter. By that evening, the unique delivery had flooded the internet and was shared by ESPN’s Sports Center and other national outlets. Check it out.

“Water Over Sand. The most simplistic description of a surfers playing field. True to simplicity, this motion piece focuses on Asher Pacey and his affinity for a pure and uncomplicated journey amongst Australia’s coastline. It depicts an adventure we all pine for…escaping the rat race, bee-lining for a remote stretch of coast off the well-worn path, equipped with little more than a swag, surfboard, fishing rod, beers, fun waves, no phone reception and a couple of good buddies to share it all with. True to his style, this piece was captured, directed and edited beautifully by the talented Matt Kleiner.” – Rhythmlivin

An old boxing adage states that punchers are born, not made. That was certainly the case with Julian Jackson, one of the hardest hitters in modern boxing history. During his outstanding career, Jackson won world titles at junior middleweight and middleweight, first holding the WBA 154-pound belt before stepping up to 160 pounds were the Virgin Islander’s power was every bit as devastating. He held the WBC middleweight crown on two occasions.

You thought you saw everything Odell Beckham Jr. could do with one hand and a football, didn’t you? Then, he pulled out some wizardry at training camp. This just isn’t even remotely fair. OBJ wasn’t working against some green rookie or a camp body either, he made this over Pro Bowler Janoris Jenkins. Beckham Jr. is unstoppable and he wants a new deal. Giants, if you’re reading this: Just pay the man his money. Nobody else in football is going to give you this kind of stuff.

24-year-old Justin Thomas from Kentucky was playing the par-5th 10th hole when his 8-foot birdie putt approached the cup, just missing by mere millimeters. His ball sat there on the edge of the hole for what felt like an eternity. It sat and sat and sat, for more than 10 seconds.

The ongoing feud between Team McGregor and former professional boxing champion Paulie Malignaggi has come to a climax after Dana White released footage of the two sparing. Conor went on to say during a press conference today, “The spars were not good for him. He took a lot of head trauma. Straight after it we were worried. The sparring partners were actually telling us when he was drove back to the home he was stumbling out of the car after the 12-rounder.”

The Estonian soccer team Paide Linnameeskond gave up an embarrassing own-goal in their game in the Estonian Cup on Wednesday. The opposing team, Levadia Tallinn, hadn’t even touched the ball when defender Martin Kase passed the ball back to his own goalie, a move which sent it flying into the net. Paide Linnameeskond got walloped 8-0, so I guess the first goal just killed their spirits.

Ballina is considered the “shark attack capital” of Australia. So when local man Craig Bateman was surfing and then saw a dorsal fin protruding from the water, he braced for the worst. Bateman, 42, said he had been surfing with a friend near Ballina. After riding a wave, he turned around and saw the fin directly behind him. “My life flashed before my eyes,” he said.

UFC interim middleweight champion Robert Whittaker was assured a shot at unifying his belt with that of current champion Michael Bisping after he defeated Yoel Romero at UFC 213 in July. Unfortunately, an aggravated knee injury put him on the sideline for the near term, and now, Georges St-Pierre‘s return to the Octagon is going to keep him out of action a little longer than planned.
