Christian track and field star Lolo Jones is responding to fans who've criticized her decision to post a photograph of herself with professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Instagram saying she would "quit track to be his housekeeper just so I can make more money."
Jones, 32, posted the image with Mayweather before he defeated devout Christian pugilist Manny Pacquiao in a highly publicized matchup Saturday. While she asked people who they believed would win the big fight, she also made a joke about wanting to be employed by "Money" Mayweather, who has been known to be extremely vocal about his wealthy financial status.
Undefeated five-division champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., who on Saturday defeated challenger Manny Pacquiao in the promoted "Fight of the Century" in Las Vegas, told a reporter that "God can forgive" him of his criminal past.
"Only God can judge me when it's all said and done," Mayweather said only minutes after his victory on Saturday about whether his criminal past taints his legacy, ABS-CBN news.com reported.
"You know, people will never forget, but God can forgive. I asked God for forgiveness. You know, a lot of things I've been accused of, I didn't do," he added. more >>
The first selection by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFL draft was former Heisman Trophy winner and Florida State Quarterback Jameis Winston. It was no surprise to many analysts who predicted Winston would be chosen due to his superior athletic talent. Undoubtedly, Winston is a gifted athlete, but he also comes with a tremendous amount of baggage.
Winston was accused of rape by a classmate, who is now suing him and Florida State University. While he was exonerated by local prosecutors and the university, the investigation, which was spearheaded by a police officer with ties to the Florida State athletic program, was a total sham. The New York Times discovered that Winston was never questioned by authorities, nor was he asked to provide a DNA sample. Even worse, a teammate's video of the incident was never subpoenaed by law enforcement officials. In her lawsuit, the alleged victim, Erica Kinsman, maintains that Winston falsely imprisoned, raped and assaulted her in an off-campus apartment in 2012. As evidence, the medical report cited her bruised knees and discovered semen on Kinsman's body.
The detailed lawsuit also included multiple witness statements verifying Kinsman's charges against Winston. According to David Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor, Kinsman's chances of prevailing in a trial are "good," due to the amount of specific information included in the lawsuit. Kinsman's attorney, John Klune, believes that Winston is "an entitled athlete who believes he can take what he wants. He took something here that he was not entitled to and he hurt someone." Due to overwhelming evidence, it is likely that Winston will settle out of court in an attempt to limit a potential public relations nightmare. more >>
