The bigger bombshell, however, didn’t get nearly as much attention. “Pretty much, I was engaged to Carlos Santana.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The pot wasn’t real. Neither, admitted Floyd Mayweather Jr., was much else that went on in the cable television shows promoting his latest fight. Not the joint rolling parties with a bevy of female friends in his Las Vegas mansion. Not the 31 minute fights without a break in the “Dog House'” of his gym just off the city’s glittering Strip.
