Both Mayweather and Pacquiao posted items on social networking that are a throwback to the boxing movie "Rocky." Mayweather released a video of himself chopping wood in the backyard of his Las Vegas mansion. People on social networking began comparing it to movie scenes from  "Rocky IV" where the lead character opted for natural training (For background information see last year's Judiciary Report article "'Rocky IV' Highlights The Advantages Of Contrasting Training Methods").

Manny Pacquiao tweets song title "The Eye Of The Tiger"

Pacquiao tweeted an item on the social networking website Twitter, featuring himself working out in the gym and added the words "The Eye Of The Tiger" which is the title of the massive, multi-platinum 1982 hit song taken from the "Rocky III" soundtrack, performed by talented group Survivor. The "Rocky IV" soundtrack also contains the poignant 1985 Survivor hit "Burning Heart."

Side Bar: Manny loves to sing. He recently bought a Beverly Hills mansion that has a recording studio in it. Will Manny remake "The Eye Of The Tiger."

Side Bar 2: Floyd has been on FaceTime with NFL football star Tom Brady. Watch Tom try to convince Floyd to deflate his gloves. Signed, bitter Dolphins fan (I'm kidding).
