Saturday night’s fight was riveting, to say the least. I’m not sure there ever was a point where anybody actually thought that Cotto would defeat Mayweather, but I will say that it appeared to be one of the more competitive fights we’ve seen Mayweather compete in. Cotto won a few of the rounds, and the fight went all 12. To top it off, there was some out-of-ring eye-candy in the lovely Shantal Jackson, Floyd Mayweather’s girlfriend. Every time the camera swung around to Jackson, all eyes around me were completely locked to the screen. A dress like the one she was wearing certainly demands that kind of attention. Chris Greenberg of the Huffington Post reported,
“Nothing mingles blood and glamour quite like a high-profile boxing match. The epic bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto was no exception. In defeat, Cotto battled Mayweather for the scheduled 12 rounds in Las Vegas, even drawing blood in the middle rounds. Despite being dragged into what HBO boxing analyst Jim Lampley described as “the most crowd pleasing fight of Mayweather’s career,” the victor made sure to bring plenty of glitz and flash with him to the ring.
As he made his way to the ring before the bout for Cotto’s WBA super welterweight belt, Mayweather was flanked by pop star Justin Bieber, rapper 50 Cent and professional wrestler Triple H. But no one may have been quite as glamorous as the young woman sitting to Bieber’s right during the bout: Ms. Shantel Jackson.
In between the 7th and 8th rounds, Jackson drew the attention of Lampley and fellow analyst Emanuel Steward. As HBO showed the model and aspiring actress in a quite revealing dress.”
Jackson’s incredibly revealing dress prompted me to give a piece of advice to all the fellas out there. Guys, yes she is smokin’ hot. She is also clearly very supportive of her beau and his career, which is another plus. But do you really want a girl who draws that much attention to herself with revealing clothing? As I mentioned, an outfit like that demands attention, specifically from the male gender. And in my opinion, dating a girl who is looking for attention from other guys is a headache. There, I’ve said my piece. Now we can all go back to looking at Floyd Mayweather’s girlfriend.
