Wahlberg & Diddy Boxing Bet

Marky Mark & P. Diddy have bet big money on the Fight Of The Century.

Mark Wahlberg & P Diddy have put some SERIOUS cash on the weekends Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.

The pair have waged $250,000 with Combs going with Mayweather and Wahlberg siding with Pacquiao.

But that money pales in comparison to the money that Mayweather and Pacqio will make from the ‘Fight of the Century’.

Mayweather stands to earn more than $US150 million while Pacquiao's cut will be around $US100 million.

Good cash if you can get it!

The fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas will be broadcast live into Australia with coverage beginning at at 11am on Sunday in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and the ACT.

Coverage starts at 10.30am in South Australia and 9am in Western Australia.

From way downtown!

Half court shots are too easy for Lebron James.

For him it's all about full court shots.... from way downtown!

The Cleveland Cavaliers star launched this shot at practice in Boston’s TD Garden... let's hope he gives it a crack in a game.

 

And here's another angle of the shot...

 

Dwight Howard responded with one of his own...

This happened.

Rock, Shock

Blake Shinn accidentally dropped his strides in Race 1 at Canterbury.

Whoops! Blake Shinn lost his strides during race one at Canterbury on Wednesday.

To Shinn's credit, even though the elastic went in his pants near the start, he managed to get Miss Royale home for second place.

"I was more worried about winning the race. They went just after the start, and there was nothing I could do," Shinn said.

"I think a lot of people are going to have a bit of fun with this, but they can't say I wasn't focused and went to the line."

Race winner on Defender, Tommy Berry, saw the bright side of the situation.

"It meant I was the only one that didn’t have to stare at Blake’s arse the whole way up the straight,” Berry said.

There have been some classic rants over the years in Aussie sports - NRL coaches Geoff Toovey and Ricky Stuart come to mind - but nothing comes close to this six-minute rant from Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price.

The under-siege coach, who is under pressure with his side 1-7 from their past eight games, echoed the sentiments of many coaches after local media reported an injury to his player, Devin Mesoraco.

"I like to talk - and I have spoken as candidly as I can with you people, if that’s not good enough, I won’t say a f***ing thing. I’ll go, ‘yes sir, no sir.’ And I can do that. But f***, I’ve been as candid as I can f***ing be about this team and our players, and we’ve got to deal with this s***," he told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

"I don't think you guys need to know everything and I certainly don't think you need to see something and then f***ing tweet it out there and make it a world event." Listen to the full audio below.

Idiot Runner Celebrates Win Too Early And Gets Caught Out

Usually you leave the fist pumping until after the race is finished...

Runner prematurely celebrates win, gets passed at finish line


It's a pretty golden rule in running, don't slow down until AFTER you cross the finish line.

Well a runner in Oregon made a mistake recently that he won't make again, where he was clearly ahead of the pack with only 20 metres to go.

On slowing down and pumping up the crowd it gave the fast approaching second place to get that all important second-wind and push himself over the finish line, in first place!

Can't say we feel all that sorry for him, but here's hoping he won't do it again.

 

"It Aint Over 'Til It's Over"

There's one Aussie sportsman that can definitely relate to this...

Cyclists' Train Near Miss

Paris-Roubaix One Day Classic cyclists struggle to pull up at train crossing

There was brief drama during the Parix-Roubaix One Day Classic when a barrier at a railway crossing came down as the peloton was passing underneath.

One rider was clipped by a barrier and several more crossed after it was down, but by the time a TGV train passed, the remaining riders had been brought to a halt by a police motorcyclist.

German John Degenkolb went on to win the Paris-Roubaix race,

Classic Wrestlers From The 80s

With WWE heading down under we looked back at some of our favourite classic wrestlers from the 80s.

Wrestling is a sport like no other. For one, it's not really a sport and purely entertainment but that's what makes it so damn good.

As one of America's biggest cultural exports wrestling is something that english and non-english speaking countries have been fanatics of for years.

Here at Triple M we love our wrestling and especially the crazy 80s with classic guys like Hulk Hogan, The Iron Shiek and Andre The Giant.

With WWE heading to Australia in August we thought we'd look back at our favourites from that time.
