    Forgive me if my information is not completely accurate. There are reports a 6-year old boy was taken to the hospital during the commotion at MGM Grand after the boxing match last Saturday.

    Please, be good parents and don't take children to grown up places. They may die.

    There is article in the Sun reporting young children were hurt trying to get froyo. I wonder if the parents knew ahead of time that it was fight night or what mayhem that sometimes means to the strip. They probably would have chosen to stay elsewhere or at least put their kids to bed earlier.

    I don't think I can post the link to the article from this thing but the comments are kind of chilling. Makes you not want to attend ANY event in that venue.

    Another reason not to take kids to a big fight is what they might hear during the post fight interview. The winner of one of the undercard fights gave a very profane and racist interview. It was the third to last fight. The fighters name is Adrien Broner. Here's a link but only watch it if you're not easily offended. http://youtu.be/tvoSSkAR5zE

    Unless I missed something, that wasn't very offensive at all.

    We were at the Billboard awards there last year. I was suprised at the small exit and how everyone was herded out of the same door. It was literally shoulder to shoulder and I don't do well pushed up against strangers in a crowded place. I can imagine that it was chaos and very scary when this happened. I hope they figure out how to remedy the situation for future events!

    Boxer on youtube is two letters short of class.

    Speaking of two letters short of class, did Mayweather beat the injured 6 year old? Floyd has knocked out more women then men over the past six years, and threatened to beat his children who attempted to protect their mother the last publicly disclosed time Floyd beat their mother prior to his latest stint in jail, because that is how Floyd and his posse roll.

    So please, be good parents and don't take children to places where violent criminal thugs gather, even if one of them fathered your child.

    There probably will be a lawsuit from someone due to the way the funnel everyone through the casino. People still insist they heard a gunshot and if that's proven true, someone will come after them for poor security. I don't think kids should be anywhere but bed that late at night but they shouldn't be getting run over in the food court no matter what time of day it is.

    It's kinda hard to explain if you aren't a boxing fan. Adrien Broner isn't really racist. The majority of Boxing fans in America are Mexican and they probably make up the majority of ppv buyers. Mexican people tend to root for only other Mexican fighters. So Broner is just taking a page out of the Mayweather book. The more you can get them to hate you then the more they will buy your fights in hoping to see you lose. It's smart business. Adrien Broner could was never gonna win over Mexican boxing fans by being a good guy. I know this sounds really bad but this is just the way boxing works. Kinda the same with Brazillians fans and the UFC but not quite as bad.
