The so-called Fight of The Century was somewhat of a tactical snooze-fest according to many people. Whatever the case, remember those fights where Tyson would jump in the ring and it would either be over in 20 seconds, or he’d do something like bite an ear? Well this was the opposite of that. But it does looks like it was the highest grossing boxing match in history, with pay-per-view thru the roof. Alex was at the fight, can give you his impressions and what folks were saying afterwards about the bout.

Six days after the death of Freddie Gray sparked riots in Baltimore, the city’s mayor lifted a citywide curfew on Sunday, signaling an end to the extraordinary measures taken to ensure public safety amid an outcry over police practices. Meanwhile, hundreds of jubilant people prayed and chanted for justice at a rally in front of City Hall organized by faith leaders. The rally comes days after the city’s top prosecutor charged six officers involved in Gray’s arrest. No one is quite sure what the next few days and for that matter weeks will bring, though of course with the trial of the police officers yet to come, the incident and the subsequent community outrage, are not going away.

It is one of the handful of times a huge crowd shows up to a racetrack for the racing, and not because there are newly installed dime slots in the building next door. It is the annual Kentucky Derby, where the best 3-year-old horses in the country run for the roses. This year there are two big morning line favorites, American Pharoah, and Dortmund, both from out West and trained by Bobby Baffert. But favorites rarely win the Derby, and TVG Network host and racing analyst Scott Hazelton, who grew up in racing (his father a world class trainer), happens to favor Carpe Diem, groomed by the top trainer in the country, Todd Pletcher. Scott will tell you why, as well as some other possibilities, Friday morning from Churchill Downs.

The police investigation into the in-custody death of Freddie Gray has been wrapped up and turned over to the Maryland State Attorney a day ahead of schedule. Investigators delivered their report early because “I understand the frustration. I understand the urgency,” Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said. The report reveals for the first time that the police van transporting Gray made a stop that was previously unreported. The report, said Commissioner Batts, is not the end of the investigation. Jim has more details.

Alex is in Vegas for the fight for the ages, between the two men considered currently the two best boxers in the world, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The welterweights will face off at the MGM Grand In Las Vegas, in a match that brings back the 1980s, considered the last golden age for boxing. Mayweather, undefeated in 47 professional fights dating back to 1996, who has won world titles in 5 different weight classes. And Pacquiao, 6-time world champion, with a 59-5 lifetime professional record. Millions of dollars involved, for the fighters, the Pay-Per-View distributor, and the Las Vegas oddsmakers. And ticket costs are in the thousands. Alex sets the scene.
