Larry Merchant Gets Chewed Out By Pretty Boy Flloyd

I personally like this clip because I've never cared for Larry Merchant myself. I have to say the old man didn't appear to be shaken up boy Mayweather, and talked a little smack

52 Blocks Challenge: Lyte Burly & Rahmel's Students Square Off

Not a day goes by that someone doesn't hit me up asking me to post more 52 Blocks videos. Here's the thing people, I can only post what's put out there. There's not a lot of new 52 Blocks videos out there like you'd find from other combat systems. You ask and I'll provide, but be patient.

Here's the latest 52 Blocks video from Lyte Burly's camp. The video is of Lyte Burly's student Young Burly and Rahmel's (IMMr52) student Cheeze gettin' it in. As described by Lyte Burly at the end of the video, the two camps had been going back and forth about which does the 'real' 52 Blocks, so to put an end to all the talk, Cheeze visits the Burlys and here is the result:

Here's a bonus for you 52 lovers:

"The Last Dragon" star Leo O'Brien Shot 3 Times

Leo O'Brien the actor who played the little brother of Bruce LeRoy in the cult classic 'The Last Dragon' was hospitalized after being shot 3 times in Harlem by a friend. The shooting took place over a chair:

"The shooting happened on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. and W. 127th St. Police arrested Travis Breckenridge, 50, and charged him with attempted murder and gun possession.

A police source said the two men were arguing about a chair. Breckenridge was in the chair and got up, then O'Brien sat down. The accused gunman wanted the chair back, but was already out of patience.

"It's about f------ time," he said to O'Brien, according to the police source. "Then he pulls out a gun and shoots him."

O'Brien felt a stinging sensation in his abdomen and asked his pal: "You got a BB gun?"

"The second bullet hit me in the stomach," he said. "I knew then it was a real gun....The third bullet hit me in the arm.

"He didn't say anything to me. He started crying and ran away. He was my homeboy. Did we have a problem before he shot me? No. I don't know why he shot me. He was scared. Maybe he thought I would hurt him?"

As bizarre as this story is, it's errily similar to one with a less fortunate ending where a man killed his friend over a home.

Boxing Trainer Murdered Australian Heavyweight Champ

This has to be one of the most ridiculous cases I've ever come across involving the murder of a friend (but then again when is it ever cool to kill a friend?)

"The court heard that Curran and Mr Cervi were once friends but fell out over living arrangements.

Curran had been living in Mr Cervi's house and Mr Cervi was living in Curran's apartment.

Their relationship became tense after they agreed to return to their own premises.

On the day of the shooting, Mr Cervi, 41, had verbally abused Curran for damaging his trailer and leaving his place in a mess.

Curran was also unhappy at the way Mr Cervi and his friends had left his premises.

Less than an hour before he shot Mr Cervi, Curran had sent a text message to a friend saying he "might have a full-on blue with Vinnie" and asked for back-up but his friend refused.

Justice Stephen Kaye said he was satisfied Curran took the loaded gun with him because he felt vulnerable going alone."
