quick question, aint been about for a while so i understand if i get ignored...
Fighthype ran with the TMZ reports about Manny's Tax issue. Why so quiet on this latest TMZ story? Considering the close access fighthype has to Floyd, and seeing how this story is starting to circulate around other media outlets. Why no clarification from Floyd or his people on the story, a statement on here about how its all bull would at least answer the allegation. Cant jus ignore it, you know how the rest of the boxing media love anything negative about Floyd..
In unrelated shit, Bob Arum talking about scuppering the Garcia vs Gamboa fight. Boo!!!
Actually, you mean TMZ ran with the FIGHTHYPE reports about Manny's Tax issues. FightHype.com was the FIRST to report Manny's tax issues and we ran with the story because we had FACTUAL DOCUMENTATION AS PROOF. For further clarification:
FightHype ran the initial story on December 5: http://www.fighthype.com/news/article15709.html
5 DAYS LATER, TMZ ran with their story: http://www.fighthype.com/news/article15750.html
And 2 days later, once we got clearance, FightHype dropped the documented proof: http://www.fighthype.com/news/article15775.html
As for this latest story regarding Floyd, unlike some sites, we don't just regurgitate rumors that don't have any factual basis. To my knowledge, thus far, there's been no legal documentation filed, no police reports (and believe me, that was checked), so there's really nothing to report other than a story that some unidentified men are claiming to be true. That's no different than some source saying that Floyd Mayweather is the father of Lil Kim's baby. Until there's some factual proof, there's nothing factual to report. Once there is some factual information, then we'll post the story just like we've always done. When Floyd Mayweather had his legal problems in the past, we reported on it, so it wouldn't be any different. Now, that being said, we're not going to run to Floyd Mayweather or his team every time some fuzzy story is floated out there about him. If there's more information, like if a lawsuit is filed, then we'll put a little more research into it, but until then, we're going to take the same stance that RingTV and ESPN are taking as far as reporting on this matter.
The story about Manny's tax issues, however, is a totally different issue because, like I said, we had the factual documentation.
