ESPN joins the ranks of unprofessional hack journalism with this article: http://www.espn.co.uk/boxing/sport/story/106177.html

They somehow interpreted Ben Thompson's interview with Jeff Mayweather, in which he said this:"I think he [Mayweather] will be fighting another couple of years," he told Fighthype.com. "I think that's being realistic because I think the fight that's out there will take that long to materialise." , to mean "Mayweather-Pacquiao 2013". How dumb and unprofessional can these people be? This is almost like the hyperbolic, hyperventilating journalism of MMA. They should be suspended without pay.
Hotsauce

For the record, it's Percy Crawford's interview with Jeff Mayweather.

It's not the first time they've done that with an interview on FightHype and I'm sure it won't be the last. That's why, personally, I prefer direct quotes straight from the horse's mouth as opposed to opinionated articles. That's just me though.
