Over-confidence can be a very dangerous attribute.
That’s the main takeaway from an amazing video that has been viewed over two million times on YouTube. It pits two boxers against one another. Their names? The location? Both unclear.
But one bruiser gets hit a few times, only to shake off the blows and taunt his opponent. That’s all you got? I feel no pain! Bring it on, he essentially says.
Cue a left hook and the trash talker is instantly seeing stars:Over-Confident Boxer Gets Knocked Out

In a recent interview, Jennifer Lopez described boyfriend Casper Smart as a “good egg.”
But the 24-year old backup dancer gets down, dirty and totally bad – in the best kind of way – in a pair of new promotional photos!
In two images from her upcoming music video (for the track “Dance Again“) J. Lo poses with her young, shirtless man, as the couple blindfolds each other with a black cloth that reads “Love is blind.”
The official video drops this Thursday during American Idol and, based on these pictures, it’s safe to say both genders now have a reason to tune in…

Jennifer Lopez may have flashed a nipple while presenting at the Oscars.
But, in the latest issue of V, the singer/dancer/actress/American Idol judge makes sure not to expose any other private parts: she’s donning a protective cup over her crotch.
Why? Lopez tells the magazine she “thought it was more graphic,” while going on to explain how boxing is a parallel to her life:
“I’ve always felt like a tough girl from the Bronx, but I have a soft core,” Lopez says. “I can take a lot of punches and still keep going. I’ve been trained like a boxer to go 15 rounds.”More >

Just shut yer yap and just look gorgeous!
The Brazilian beauty made news after she was filmed, unknowingly, by The Insider, defending Brady from gloating Giants fans shortly after Super Bowl XLVI.
“You have to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” yelled Bundchen to Giants fans as she was on her way out of Lucas Oil stadium.’

His Super Bowl ad got Roland Martin all fired up, but the CNN commentator isn’t the only one making headlines for an incident involving David Beckham.
He may be the most famous soccer player in the world, but that didn’t stop a referee from giving the 36-year-old a red card at a children’s match in L.A.
Before his son Romeo took the field, “there was a penalty given” to a young player from another team, Beckham recalled on The Jonathan Ross Show.
“The kids are 7 years old and [the referee] sent the kid off. And I was like, ‘Come on, he’s 7 years old, referee! You can’t send him off,’”More >

Hayden Panettiere says people are ALL about asking intimate questions when talking to her. Specifically, what’s it like in bed with Wladimir Klitschko?
You know, given the obstacles and all.
The 5’1″ actress and her boxer beau, who towers over her at 6’6″, get this a lot apparently. But instead of shying away from the questions, she obliges:
On Ellen this week, Hayden discussed this occurrence: “He is quite a bit bigger than me. I get the prudest people come up to me, and they’re like ‘Does it work?’”
Yeah, it works. We find a way. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!”

Floyd Mayweather has trouble with anger. And security cameras.
Last month, surveillance video outside the boxer’s Las Vegas home caught him berating a guard who dared to ask for his identification. Now, TMZ has obtained a tape that may prove even more damaging to Mayweather.
In mid-September, the athlete was charged with four felonies in connection to allegedly assaulting ex-girlfriend Josie Harris.

Floyd Mayweather really wants to get into his motherf-ckin house.
The boxer was stopped at the security gate of his Las Vegas home early on the morning of December 19. When asked for his ID, the athlete said he didn’t have it – and then exploded at the guard who wouldn’t immediately let him pass.

(HMG Celebrity News) – When your own mother calls you a “pathological liar” you have to be skeptical about the veracity of any claims you make. Porn star Devon James who usually gets paid up front for her ’screen work’, told the media a few week ago that she’s shopping an alleged sex tape of Tiger Woods, for $350k.

It was a slow, but steady rise to the top for Lee DeWyze.
But it all paid off tonight, as the laid back rocker with the sexy, scratchy voice was crowned season nine champion on American Idol!
DeWyze peaked at the ideal time, bringing the crowd and judges to their feet with his recent rendition of “Hallelujah” last week. He then carried that momentum into the finale and defeated a worthy competitor, Crystal Bowersox.
Send in your congratulations to Lee right now and sound off: Did he deserve to win?

She started season nine as the favorite, she faltered near the finish line, but Crystal Bowersox came through when it mattered most last night.
Of the six total songs covered by her and Lee DeWyze, Crystal put on the top two performances. She left her comfort zone (and wore a dress!) with Alannah Myles’ “Black Velvet,” abandoning her guitar and showing off her range.
But it was Bowersox’s take on Patty Griffin’s “Up to the Mountain” that should earn her the title. She delivered it with drama and feeling, as Randy Jackson rightly referred to the audition as “amazing” and Simon said it wasMore >
