SHADY RECORDS TO RELEASE SOUNDTRACK FOR "SOUTHPAW"...

July 1, 2015 -- Southpaw (Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture), the soundtrack to The Weinstein Company motion picture Southpaw, will be released on July 24th -- the same day the film hits theaters -- via Shady Records/Interscope Records. Eminem serves as Executive Producer of the album, which includes two tracks from the multi-platinum rapper: the first single, "Phenomenal," and "Kings Never Die," featuring Gwen Stefani.  Eminem also appears on two songs from his side project with Royce Da 5'9", Bad Meets Evil. In addition, the soundtrack includes music from 50 Cent, The Weeknd, Action Bronson & Joey Bada$$, Slaughterhouse and more. In addition, the soundtrack includes two arrangements from the late James Horner, the Academy Award-winning composer (TitanicAvatar) who scored the film and tragically passed away earlier this week.  The complete track-listing for the soundtrack is below.

The film, directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and written by Kurt Sutter (Sons of AnarchyThe Shield), is the riveting story of Billy "The Great" Hope, the reigning light heavyweight boxing champion of the world (played by Academy Award nominee Gyllenhaal). Hope seemingly has it all, with an impressive career, a beautiful and loving wife (Rachel McAdams), an adorable daughter (Oona Laurence) and a lavish lifestyle.  When tragedy strikes and his lifelong manager and friend (Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson) leaves him behind, Hope hits bottom, and turns to an unlikely savior at a local gym, Tick Willis (Forest Whitaker), a retired fighter and trainer to the city's toughest amateur boxers. With his future riding on Tick's guidance and tenacity, Billy enters the hardest battle of his life as he struggles with redemption and to win back the trust of those he loves.

Mayweather Claims Victory in Bout Against Manny Pacquiao...

Mayweather Claims Victory in Bout Against Manny Pacquiao...

With votes from two judges of 116-112, and from a third of 112-110, Mayweather has taken the win against Manny Pacquiao in tonight's fight! With tonight's win, Floyd will retain both his WBA and WBC titles, and now he claims Pacquiao's WBO belt! 

Despite Mayweather having an obvious record of 47-0 with 25 KO's (He's now at 48-0, 26 KO's), there were many, for whatever reason, that we're hoping for a victory in favor of Pacquiao. That notion became evident when Mayweather was announced as the winner, and the crowd burst with a series of boo's. Of course, none of that phased Mayweather.

This was undoubtedly the most lucrative fight of his career, not to mention boxing history, bringing in an estimated $400 million. 

Floyd stated again tonight that following his next fight in September, he would be hanging up his boxing gloves for good.
