Roy Jones Jr. to Fight in Philly

Who was the greatest?  Who was the best of all time?  If two athletes from different eras could actually compete against each other, who would come out on top?  Ah shit, wrong story.

Anyway, Roy Jones Jr. is going to fight in Philly.  Manny Siaca, of Puerto Rico, will be his opponent.  In his press conference, Jones called Philadelphia the Mecca of Boxing.

Loser Colin Cowherd pays off bet, wears Sixers jersey


Loser Colin Cowherd pays off bet, wears Sixers jersey

The Philadelphia 76ers as a team, and Joel Embiid specifically, reminded the world last night that FS1's Colin Cowherd is quite often full of it when they won their 40th game of the season.

We wrote about this last night when Jojo poked fun at Cowherd for his preseason assertion that Sixers wouldn't sniff 40 wins. But today Cowherd held up his end of the preseason bet by rocking a No. 21 Sixers jersey during his The Herd show.

Cowherd's co-host Kristine Leahy posted video of the frequently wrong analyst admitting he'd lost and saying he'd own up to it, eventually.

"I'd love to have [Embiid] on this show anytime he wants," Cowherd said today. "I made a bet. I lost. I'm not going to welch."

But then he spoke about not being able to find a jersey that fit while Leahy was wearing one that would clearly fit him. They eventually found one and he put it on.

"They deserve love," Cowherd said.

Winning sure feels good. Any kind of winning.
