Mayweather quits King MisuZulu tournament

Retired boxing billionaire, Floyd Mayweather has cancelled his attendance at the much-publicised 'King MisuZulu International Boxing Tournament'.

The boxing extravaganza was scheduled for Moses Mabhida Stadium but was later called off after the organiser failed to pay his appearance fee.

Sunday World reported that organiser, Arnold Nododile attempted to sway the star into attending the event by sending his team a fake R5.8 million proof of payment.

The news will leave Mayweather’s legion of fans thoroughly disappointed, with many having paid thousands of rands to sit in proximity with him and the king.

Boxer vomits after devastating punch

American boxer, Marquez Greer began vomiting inside the ring after being struck down by a tremendous body shot before the referee called off the fight.

The 26-year-old took on middleweight debutant, Marquis Williams over the weekend in Gadsden, Alabama, with Greer looking to end his losing streak.

He has suffered defeats in all his 15 bouts, with 14 by knockout - 13 of those coming inside the very first round - making it difficult to understand why he mounted the ring again on the night.
