Hey guys welcome back , Hope all is well. Before I even get into this post I have to tell you to go and pick up a copy of the New York Beacon Newspaper, my article on Creole Restaurant is on page 19. Now lets get into this Roy Jones fight. There were some great fights before Roy Jones's main event. My boy and Brooklyn's own Zab Judah was the main under card fight. He did his thing and bought a win home for BK. I was really happy to see Zab on the road to getting back to the Champion fighter stature he once was. After Zab's win the crowed was energized and ready for the main event of Roy Jones Jr. Vs. Calzaghe. Calzaghe who is the Light Heavyweight Champion of the world is from Wales and his fans came out in full force. I mean there were so many Calzaghe fans in Madison Square Garden I thought I as in Wales. The Calzaghe fans were serious about their boy, they had Wales flags on and chanted Wales!Wales! all through out the fight. The craziest part for me was the Wales national anthem, I can't event describe it..lol.
The first round my boy Roy came out swinging he even had a first round knock down that had the crowed going wild. I thought "yeah he got this", but I was wrong . The first round knock down was one of the only Roy Jones highlights in 12 rounds. He got gassed up with his first knock down and kept fishing for another one. He only threw power punches that were not connecting. It was a mess, in the 4th round Calzaghe threw a power punch that landed over Roy's right eye and it was down hill from there for the once Pound for Pound baddest fighter in the land. The cut kept on leaking and Calzaghe kept on working that eye, at one point I didn't want to look at it anymore. I mean I have been to more fights than I can remember and that was the worst one yet. Every thing that was white in the ring was red, even the referee was slipping on blood. I thought for sure they were going to stop the fight, but it just kept going. There was a full house in attendance to witness the blood bath. Celebrities such as fighters Hopkins and Winky Wright , rapper LL Cool J, actors Catherine Zeta Jones ( who is from Wales) and her husband Micheal Douglas were all there. Sitting close to me were Osi Uminyara of the Giants and his girlfriend Victoria Secret model Saleta E. Banks (once engaged to Nick Cannon)but they left before the fight started. Sitting ringside I had full view of all the excitement , so enjoy the pics.

THE GARDEN CAME TO LIFE
THERE I GO AGAIN AT THE AFTER PARTY..
WILE I WAS TAKING THIS PICS IN THE GARDEN LOBBY THIS GUY FROM WHALES TOOK A PIC WITH ME AND SAID HE IS TELLING EVERYONE BACK HOME HE MET A CELEBRITY..LOL..
Quick Note: Calzaghe had a victory over Bernard Hopkins earlier this year after a split decision made him victorious. Hopkins protested that win because he like Roy Jones knocked Calzaghe down in the first round. Hopkins was ringside at the Roy Jones fight looking like he was gearing up for a rematch.
Hope you enjoyed the post and don't forget to post a comment and pick up The New York Beacon newspaper. It is located at newsstands near you.

Hey guys welcome back. So I had fun in DC a few weeks ago. I went with my BFF Chedda to her Homecoming. Howard Homecoming is by far the Best college Homecoming ever. I had a ball partying all weekend and eating good. The clubs are always fun in DC because they are so big. I didn't go to Love the old Dream , because I heard its become a tourist attraction and you know I only want to be at the exclusive spots. I hit the yard during the day as well. So here are some pics enjoy.
There goes the AKA's doing their AKA thing. You know Chedda and I walked through the Delta's formation..it was so funny. They were looking at us like we were crazy..straight School Daze style..lol
Howard lost their big game by one point .Booo
Check out the score.
The marching band was fun to watch..Terrence Howard led the band...Hot!
Before I left DC..I went to Sideline Sports Bar to watch the Redskins game. It's cool because it is across the street from the Redskins arena.
I hope you enjoyed the pics. Post some comments, you know I luv them. Oh fun little thing that DC had was a party to go to after the party . It was packed outside and charging $40 to get in, but they did serve breakfast the only problem was they were not serving alcohol.
Big Thank you to DJ P-Cutta our tour guide. You were the best. Go Pick up his new mixtape people. Also thanks to Jia for showing us so much love, she was the best host ever.
