LAS VEGAS - Danny Garcia just wanted to figure out his vacation destination. He usually goes to an island or resort after a fight, but the Juniata Park native said he might start his vacation by staying an extra day here to celebrate. He pounded out an impressive, unanimous decision over Lucas Matthysse to retain his unified light welterweight titles Saturday. While Garcia wondered about his getaway plans, everyone else in the MGM Grand seemed to be fixated on the 25-year-old's chances to square off with Floyd Mayweather.

LAWYERS FOR Floyd Mayweather Jr. said the undefeated champion boxer may never fight again if he's not released from the Las Vegas jail he entered earlier this month. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Mayweather's lawyers filed an emergency motion Monday asking that he serve the remainder of his 3-month jail sentence in house arrest. Lawyer Richard Wright said Mayweather's health is deteriorating by being confined to his cell 23 hours a day and restricted from working out. Jailers are keeping him from the general inmate population because of his celebrity status.

IS 50 CENT saying that boxing great Floyd Mayweather has taken too many punches to the head, or is he merely trying to rope a dope? Cursing the bucket of ice he had ready for the ALS Challenge and dumping it off his balcony, 50 Cent, according to E! News, instead challenged Mayweather to his own "ELS Challenge. " "This is a special ASL-ELS challenge for you, Floyd," Mr. Cent said, with another dose of profanity. "If you can read one full page of a Harry Potter book . . . I'll give $750,000 to whatever charitable organization you want to. " If that's your challenge, 50, it's the "ESL" (English as a Second Language)

ATLANTIC CITY - Bernard Hopkins apologized if listeners had heard the story before, but the 48-year-old champion said it was pertinent to the point he was making. When he walked out of Graterford Prison 26 years ago, Hopkins said, he promised himself "I'm not going back to nobody's jail cell. " And he never did. It was then that Hopkins realized he could do anything he set his mind to. "I'm going through that wall. That's how I think, that's how I operate," said Hopkins, who retained his IBF light-heavyweight title with an impressive unanimous decision over Karo Murat on Saturday night at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall.

Floyd Mayweather stepped into the ring the other night to face one of the world's best amateur boxers in front of a packed house. He thought nothing of it. Nor did he seem to notice the excitement in the air after he beat Lorenzo Aragon, thus becoming the first American boxer since 1976 to defeat a Cuban in Olympic competition. "I don't know Castro," Mayweather said, "and he don't know me. " Mayweather, a featherweight, wasn't being flippant, and it's not like he didn't understand the significance of what he'd done.

How good is Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the boxing ring? He's nearly as great as he says he is, and the crazy way he boasts, that's saying a lot. How bad is Mayweather outside the ring? Not as nasty as you think, he says. And given the history of violence charges and court cases against him, that's saying a lot, too. Mayweather enters the ring tonight in Atlantic City as the overwhelming betting favorite - and overwhelmingly not the fan favorite - in his super-lightweight (140-pound)

LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather Jr. surrendered in a courtroom Friday to begin a three-month jail sentence for attacking his ex-girlfriend in September 2010 while two of their children watched. Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa credited the undefeated five-division champion with attending weekly domestic violence counseling sessions and with beginning to meet community-service requirements she imposed in December. The judge then watched as the silent Mayweather was handcuffed and taken away.

After securing the first world-title shot in his career, North Philadelphia's Gabriel Rosado set his sights on something else. The 26-year-old light middleweight used his signature, gritty style to pick up a 10th-round technical knockout on Friday night over Charles Whittaker at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pa. Rosado (21-5, 13 KOs) is now the mandatory No. 1 contender for Cornelius Bundrage's IBF world title. Whittaker was knocked down early in the 10th round, before referee Steve Smoger was forced to stop the match later in the round.

IT WAS SHORTLY after Christian Carto finished carving up his latest opponent when he heard from one of his idols. Jesse Hart, the undefeated super-middleweight who will be fighting on the May 2 Mayweather-Pacquiao undercard, leaned over to Carto and whispered some very quick advice. "He was telling me what I could have done better," said Carto, who earned his second consecutive Golden Gloves Pennsylvania state championship with a decision over Daniel Sandoz. "He said I could have set more punches up with my jab. I appreciate that more coming from him because I look up to him. " Carto's methodical performance earned him the inaugural Stan Hochman Award, which will be given to the top fighter at the Pennsylvania Golden Gloves East Regional Championships.

WHEN FLOYD Mayweather meets Manny Pacquiao next month, there's a good chance he'll put his money where his mouth is. And we're not talking about making a wager on the fight. Dr. Lee Gause, a New York dentist, has designed a special mouthpiece for Mayweather, aka "Money," that contains $100 bills. And yes, the bills are as real as the cost, reportedly $25,000. Gause, who owns Iceberg Guards, said that in addition to protecting against concussions, his mouthpieces help athletes breathe better, which increases performance.

A LOUD BELL rang, signaling the end of the 3-minute round Danny Garcia was shadowboxing in the ring at his DSG gym yesterday on Jasper Street in the Juniata Park section of Philadelphia. Garcia, who had just finished talking to reporters before his official media workout, had finished three of these rounds already, with a 30-to-40-second break between each. Outside the ring, Danny's father and trainer, Angel Garcia, was still holding court with a throng of pundits. This was the case, too, before Danny had even arrived at the gym. And that's how it usually goes.

The paydays being talked about for the May 2 megafight between welterweights Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are so outlandish that boxing simply cannot be discussed without them coming up. Philadelphia's Danny Garcia could earn millions in a bout with Pacquiao or Mayweather in the near future. However, before that, the owner of the WBC and WBA junior-welterweight crowns has some business of his own to finish. On April 11, Garcia will put his undefeated record (29-0, 17 knockouts)

Erik Garcia gripped the leather punching shield with two hands, and his younger brother, boxing champ Danny Garcia, whacked it with his black-and-orange mitts. The pair worked in three-minute intervals Wednesday afternoon, slugging water each time the bell rang. Toward the end of a round, Garcia threw a wild left hook - his signature punch - and his older brother stepped away as the punch cut the air. No grip would be tight enough to absorb that blow. "If I land that, I may knock myself out," said Garcia, the unified light-welterweight world champion.
