Come on HBO, this is some bullshit guys:

TULammo-Boxing-Offensive

Russian Light Heavyweight World Champion Sergey Kovalev defends his title against Nadjib Mohammedi live Saturday, July 25, on HBO.  Now, as he prepares for his biggest fight to-date, and first in Las Vegas, his sponsors have told NSSF that HBO is demanding Kovalev remove the logo of Tulammo USA, a Round Rock, Texas-based ammo manufacturing company, from his boxing trunks.

Full Story – NSSF

Politics huh?  *smh*.  HBO is literally the most violent (yes including gun violence) network out there.  Because of their position in the market, they are known for not pulling any punches (yes I went there in this boxing story) when it comes to reality in any of their shows… that’s why the shows they have are typically so damn good.

When is the “offended class” going to quit being pandered to?  I realize I’m not HBO, but when someone thinks they are going to get under my skin by telling me they don’t like guns, I’m normally just like “Oh cool, well good luck with that.”

Thoughts?

Shooter ready:

I don’t follow boxing, but Pacquaio seems like a genuinely nice guy.  Humble, down to earth, likes to help people etc… basically the opposite of Mayweather.  I’m not mad at Mayweather though.  He’s doing his thing alright… frankly I’d rather have Mayweather’s life more than Pacquaio’s… because YOLO.  Interesting how even though Pacquaio lost, he still raked in millions.  I wonder if he has a big gun collection in general?  Sport shooting such as IPSC is crazy popular in the Philippines, I wouldn’t be surprised.

Pacquiao-IPSCWhat do you think of his equipment?  Handgun is a Metrillo custom.  How much do they go for?  Are they worth the price?  Made in the Philippines I see.  Looks like nice machine work on them anyway.

Can Mayweather own guns, or did any of those charges for beating up women stick?

Oh man this is gold:

This is what rapper DMX had to say:

“I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up.”

DMX says, “Once I am done with him, I am going to whip my d**k out and piss on him … right in his muthaf**kin face.”

He adds, “Zimmerman is a piece of s**t and that’s what he needs to drink.”

George-Zimmerman-Shitty-ArtistSo eloquent, that DMX fellow.  Full story over at TMZ.

I’ve said in the past I have no use for George Zimmerman, and I still feel that way.  I’m assuming both Zimmerman and DMX will be getting a lot of money for this boxing match, so good for them I guess.  

More than the boxing match I was surprised to learn that Zimmerman is only 30 years old… wow he looks like he could be my dad and I’m 32.  DMX is aging quite nicely (no homo) I’d say at 43.

Thoughts?  Do you think Zimmerman stands a chance?  DMX is pretty high strung, I think he will destroy George.
