  Texas parole board denies George Floyd posthumous pardon for 2004 drug charge The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles denied a posthumous pardon for George Floyd on Thursday despite recommending the pardon last year. The board said it reconsidered its initial decision to recommend the pardon, which would have cleared Floyd of a drug conviction from 2004. BLACK LIVES MATTER LEADER ACCUSED OF SIPHONING OFF $10 MILLION “The Members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles have reconsidered their initial decision concerning your client’s application for a Full Pardon and/or Pardon for Innocence,” the one-page letter to Floyd's lawyer, Allison Mathis, obtained by the Marshall Project said.

Mayweather, 45, scored a second-round knockout of Mikuru Asakura at Sunday’s Super Rizin headliner, downing the MMA veteran with a two-punch combination after a surprisingly competitive opening few minutes. The bout was Mayweather’s fourth exhibition match since his retirement from boxing in 2017, following past exhibition bouts against Tenshin Nasukawa, Don Moore, and Logan Paul, all of which either ended in Mayweather wins or were not officially scored.

And boxing’s most prominent Paul brother has seen enough.

“Alright, ladies and gentlemen, picture this: It’s 2022, Floyd Mayweather is ruining his legacy fighting no-name guys, wasting his fans money, wasting his fans time,” Jake Paul said Sunday on social media. “He doesn’t even know the names of the guys he’s fighting ... to make some money to pay his tax bills. Floyd Mayweather telling Jake Paul that you will only fight Jake Paul if he comes down to his weight, 140 pounds or something. I can’t believe what’s going on in the world. I can’t believe this is real.

“Floyd, I will fight you. And you know that’s one of the biggest fights to make in boxing. I weigh 175, you weigh 165 — we can get that done, make a couple $100 million. But what will your excuse be? You didn’t care what my brother weighed, so why do you care what I weigh? Oh, because you know — you know what’s going to happen. I want to say, ‘I’ve got your 0.’ I don’t want to just say, ‘I’ve got your hat.’ I got your 0.

  Video: Floyd Mayweather knocks out Mikuru Asakura in Rizin exhibition It was more like a real fight.Asakura landed a few clean shots early that got Mayweather to smile and take it more seriously. The undefeated boxer turned it up in the next round though. As Asakura tried to get aggressive, Mayweather flipped the script. He landed flush and dropped Asakura with a right hand in the second round. The Japanese fighter was wobbly and clearly hurt as he tried to get back to his feet, prompting the referee to stop the fight.

“But you’re going to find a way to dance around this. You’ve said, ‘Oh, once he finds a professional fighter, he’s going to get destroyed. It’ll be back for him.’ Why not let that be you? The best ever. There’s only one Mayweather. But he’s scared to fight Jake Paul. It’s 2022, I can’t believe what the f***’s going on, guys. Goddammit.”

Paul followed up with further messages on Instagram pointing out that Mayweather “didn’t care about the 35-pound weight difference” between him and Paul’s brother.

“Floyd let’s meet in the middle. I’m 175. You 165. Stop wasting your fans money by giving them fights they know you will win against no name people.”

Paul, 25, memorably drew Mayweather’s fury by stealing his hat in a 2021 run-in ahead of the legend’s fight against Logan Paul.

Paul is currently slated to fight former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva on Oct. 29 in Glendale, Ariz. The popular YouTuber has been linked to MMA superstar Nate Diaz as well, but could Mayweather be the next big name to get drawn into the Paul orbit?
