Bellows To Help The Kids of Las Vegas


Far too often we hear negative stories about fighters outside the ring. While many fighters do some much for their communities that goes unnoticed and reported. Well here at the The Title Fight we want to buck this trend and show love to the men and women in boxing who are out trying to make the world a better place when they are not in the ring entertaining us.

Friday, August 26 TMT super middleweight prospect Lanell “KO” Bellows will hold a “Teddy Bears and Back Pack” drive for the Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC..

“Everyone knows how much I care for kids, and it’s a great chance for me to help some kids who are sick, and maybe get them to feel just a little better in the hospital,” Bellows said.

Erica Nansen, Volunteer Program and Community Relations Supervisor, Marketing and Community Outreach for the University Medical Center of Nevada, is excited about Lanell’s effort.

“We want to thank Lanell Bellows for reaching out and expressing his desire to give back to our littlest patients,” she said. “The teddy bears and back packs will be a huge hit. Stuffed animals are very comforting for our patients as they face some scary unknowns. Also, with school right around the corner, back packs will be needed. Visitors are a great way to help lift moods and help to create a great distraction. The staff at our Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC are very welcoming and appreciative of visitors due to the many benefits they bring to our patients and staff”.

To donate to the KO Bellows Teddy Bear and Back Pack Drive, send your items to: Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC, 800 Hope Place, Las Vegas, Nevada 89106, or for more information, email Michelle Johnson or Amy Green, All donations are requested to be in by August 22.

TMT Drama: Mayweather-50 Split

Sadly, I’m not surprised of the news that broke of The Money Team being done; just of the fact that it is happening so soon. Over the last few years you would see Floyd Mayweather and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson joined at the hip. 50 being at Floyd’s training camps, at fight press conferences and at his side on his way to the ring. You would see them at each other’s birthday parties, charity events and at other sporting events together.

But all good things must come to an end and many friendships end over a woman. Last week a story had broke that during Floyd’s …shall we say “time away”, that his friend 50 had messed around with his girlfriend who is oddly enough named Miss Jackson. Neither side would fully deny that anything went on between the two, which was a sign of some friction. Then on Tuesday during a radio interview, 50 said him and Floyd were ”cool” and that since he has came home he was “different”. Some took to Twitter over the weekend that a Mayweather Promotions banner was hanging up at a Showtime televised fight card in Las Vegas Saturday night and not “The Money Team”.

Wednesday, 50’s lawyer stated he was out of the boxing business with no real reasoning behind it and now the Money Team’s web address now forwards to Mayweather Promotions. One of the signed fighters, Billy Bid was also informed that he was being released from his promotional contract. To make things even more wacky, Floyd’s public rival Manny Pacquiao, has had his representatives meet with 50 Cents about setting up their own promotional team. Folks you can’t make this kind of drama up.

The question that still remains is why. What was said to ruin the great relationship these two had. Was it two different business models that each partner had, was it how the money was going to be split, or was it just egos? Maybe these questions will get answered and cleared up over the coming days and weeks. But those in the boxing game will always wonder what could have been?
