    In Ring Segment

    Heyman in the ring to serious heat, though some pop.

    Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I am here this evening to give you a preview for NoC. First, coming down the aisle will be the former Champion, and you’ll hear his music (imitates Cena’s music in a very silly way), and he’ll take the ring and the children will scream, ‘Let’s go Cena!’ And then down the asile, The Beast Incarnate, the reigning WWE WHC, Brock Lesnar! (heat) You can boo all you want, Brock Lesnar, will give you a whole lot more to boo about Sunday, because if you think the beating John Cena took at SummerSlam was vicious…

    Cena’s music cuts Heyman off. Smiles and salute on the stage, then runs and slides into the ring to mixed reaction. He sucks it all in.

    Cena – I know this is a little cliché, but I don’t see him. Where is the one in 21-1, where is Brock Lesnar?

    Heyman – Well, Mr, Cena, that all depends on your definition of the world where, because where is a relative term, and according to the legal definition of the term…

    Cena – I told you last week that I was showing up for a fight. (small pop) I’m either gonna fight him, or I’m going to fight you.

    Heyman smiles like a hyena.

    Heyman – You really want this? I mean me, personally, as a businessman, I’d like to entice them to spend $9.99 on the WWE Network, but you want to give it to them for free. John Cena, if that’s what you want, that’s what you’ll get, right here, the Dr. of Thuganomics versus The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, here comes the pain!

    With a daring drive through the middle, Brad Keselowski showed how badly he wants to win another championship.

    Keselowski used a three-wide pass of Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday to win the opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The victory automatically advances Keselowski into the second round of the 10-race Chase, which will eliminate four drivers every third race under NASCAR's new format.

    As his Team Penske team celebrated in Victory Lane, Keselowski moved his name on a bracket-type Chase grid into the next round.

    Having already made major history with the lowest-ever round, South Korean teenager Hyo-Joo Kim enhanced her reputation by beating Australian veteran Karrie Webb by one shot on Sunday to win the Evian Championship and become the third youngest major winner at 19 years, 2 months.

    Kim trailed the 39-year-old Webb by one shot heading into the final hole. But she turned the tables with a birdie from 12 feet out, and Webb then missed a chance to force a playoff when a difficult attempt for par from the same distance drifted left of the hole.

    WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr (47-0, 27 KOs) put on a boxing clinic tonight in defeating challenger Marcos Maidana (35-5, 31 KOs) on Saturday night on the “Mayhem” Card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The final judges’ scores were 115-112, 116-111, 116-111. Maidana It’s hard to understand what the referee was watching who scored the fight 115-112. It wasn’t that close unless the referee was counting Maidana’s many missed punches as shots that landed.

    “He bit my hand and that caused my fingers to be numb. I couldn’t use my hand for a while because my finders were numb,” Mayweather said.”I felt sharper in the first fight. My fingers felt numb after the 8th round. I give my self a C minus. I got hit with some shots I shouldn’t have got hit with. I’m going to go back to my team and assess what my team decides. I don’t know who I’m fighting in May. If a fight against Manny Pacquiao presents itself then it’s possible.”

    In a controversial decision, #10 IBF Mickey Bey (21-1-1, 10 KOs) defeated IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez (34-4, 13 KOs) by a 12 round split decision.

    The final judges’ scores were 115-113 and 119-109 for Bey, and 115-113 for Vazquez. While you can make an argument that Bey deserved a close decision win, it’s difficult understand what the judge was thinking who scored the fight 119-109 for Bey. That was a ridiculous score that doesn’t make any sense at all.

    In a predictable outcome, WBA World super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (29-0-2, 22 KOs) stopped the over-matched Stephane Jamoye (26-7, 16 KOs) in the 3rd round on Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK.

    Quigg dropped the light hitting Jamoye with a right hand body shot in the 3rd round. Jamyoye was able to make it back to his feet at he count of 8, but he then staggered backwards, causing the referee Terry O’Connor to stop the fight at 1:13 of the round.

    I can’t say I was impressed with Quigg though. He reminded me a of a poor man’s version of Kiko Martinez. I rate Martinez as a better fighter with better power than Quigg. He does everything that Quigg can do but a lot better. After this fight, I can’t see Quigg hanging with IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton. I see Frampton as much, much better than Quigg.

    “I went out and systematically broke him down in three rounds. No one has ever done that to him,” Quigg said after the fight. “I just went in and broke him down systematically. That’s the fight that I want next. There’s also Leo Santa Cruz who is fighting next.”

    Heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua (8-0, 8 KOs) stopped 35-year-old Russian journeyman Konstantin Airich (21-10-2, 17 KOs) in the 3rd round. Joshua knocked Airich down in the 3rd round after hurting him with a right hand.

    Joshua flurried on Airich until he collapsed on the canvas. Joshua then hit Airich while he was down on the canvas. You can make an argument that Joshua should have been disqualified. After Airich got back to his feet, Joshua backed him up against the ropes and hurt him with a left hand to the head. Joshua then flurried on Airich until the referee Steve Gray stopped the fight at 1:16.

    In the first couple of rounds Joshua jabbed and landed single shots. He looked kind of robotic with his shots and more than a little over-muscled.
