Theres also professional MMA practitioners on the world and national stages with Maine ties such as Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight contender Tim Boetsch of Lincolnville and Bangors Marcus Davis, who made the switch from boxing to mixed martial arts more than a decade ago, went on to a top-10 ranking in the UFC and earlier this year signed a contract with Bellator.

And what role would boxing have at the Barclays-run coliseum? Yormark said his partner Golden Boy Promotions has committed to bringing some of their shows in the theater. Yormark also hopes to « accommodate some bigger fights there. » In addition, he’d like to have Golden Boy put some non-televised cards in that theater, to give the local fighters more reps.

Just as his father before him, Floyd Mayweather is led away in handcuffs — after receiving a brief jail term for domestic violence. In the 1990s, Floyd Sr. was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in jail for drug trafficking.
