On Friday night, May 13, inside of the Sam’s Town Casino & Gambling Hall, cruiserweight contender Andrew “The Beast” Tabiti secured the biggest victory over his career in out-pointing New Jersey’s Keith “Machine Gun” Tapia over 10 rounds to claim the NABF title.

Sitting ringside during the bout was Tabiti’s promoter Floyd Mayweather. And while it’s not surprising to see the retired pound-for-pound king around the scene and supporting his fighters, it was the two men who were flanking Mayweather who caught our attention.

On Saturday night, former lightweight champion Brandon Rios came up short against Manny Pacquiao.

For twelve frustrating rounds inside of the Venetian Resort’s Coati Arena, Pacquiao was simply too dynamic and sharp for Rios, as he used his movement and combination punching to nullify any kind of attack that the Kansas native attempted to bring.

Watching the fight from ringside, Rios’ stable mate and current WBO junior lightweight champion Mikey Garcia gave Pacquiao his deserved credit.
