In the second stop of their 11 city, two country promo tour, Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez did their staredowns in DC, at the Howard Theatre on Tuesday.
I checked in with Showtime boxing boss Stephen Espinoza for his take on this appearance.
"DC was even more boisterous than NYC," he reported, one day after the fighters hyped the Sept. 14 clash in Times Square. "Standing room only crowd that started lining up early this morning. Met one family that drove five hours and lined up at 5 a.m. to make sure they got in."
Did he get the sense that they are getting on each others’ nerves at all? Or does he think there will be no trash talk for the whole tour?
"They’re still feeling each other out," Espinoza said, "but I already see some signs of conflict."
Oh ****, he does resemble one! Lmfao! TSS should have a drawing/photoshop contest sort of like how TV Guide use to back in the before internet day. The contest ad use to run under something like Tippy The Turtle but for this challenge we'll call it TMT (Team Money Turtle) or Lackey Leornard.
Obviously in this contest the turtle has to resemble Ellebre.
