The sporting world, in its very nature, harbors an inherent athletic Darwinism. The strong continually trump the weaker opponents, until only two competitors remain. However, this inborn trait of competition becomes complicated, and is often compromised in the sport of boxing. It is a sport in which weight classes and multiple league promotions become barriers that rob fans of dream matchups. Given this complicated boxing climate, it often becomes difficult for polarizing figures of the sport to cement their legacy as all time greats unless they take enormous risks by fighting out of their normal weight class. And amongst current pugilists, there are none more polarizing than the eccentric Floyd “Money” Mayweather.

The junction of Oracle and Ina Roads, one of
Tucson's busiest intersections, is being studied for
reconstruction, with an indirect "Michigan left" turn proposed for
east and westbound traffic, and ramped right-turn lanes to move
vehicles onto Oracle without delay.
Randy Metcalf/The Explorer, A study is being conducted to determine the impact of having a free-turning right lane to travel northbound on Oracle Road from westbound Ina Road, without a stop, eventually merging into northbound lanes. A "Michigan left" is also being proposed.
