SAN ANTONIO - Mexico's Orlando Salido outpointed two-time Olympic champion Vasyl Lomachenko in a featherweight bout Saturday night at the Alamodome after losing his WBO title when he failed to make weight.
LOUISVILLE, Kentucky - Before Cassius Clay fought Sonny Liston for the world heavyweight title, the Louisville boxer said he could "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." Fifty years later, Muhammad Ali is using another winged creature, the blue Twitter bird, to reach his fans.
It's hard to imagine now: barely having a clue who the Beatles were, or the man who would become Muhammad Ali.
Nobody knew quite what to make of the handsome young boxer whose mouth seemed to be his greatest weapon. What they did know was that Cassius Clay didn't stand a chance.
