Rod Laver's 200 singles titles are the most in tennis history. This included his all-time men's record of 10 or more titles per year for seven consecutive years (1964–70). He excelled on all of the court surfaces of his time: grass, clay, hard, carpet, and wood/parquet.

Rod Laver is the only player to twice achieve the calendar-year Grand Slam, in 1962 and 1969, and the latter remains the only time a man has done so in the Open Era. He also won eight Pro Slam titles, including the "pro Grand Slam" in 1967, and he contributed to five Davis Cup titles for Australia during an age when Davis Cup was deemed as significant as the Grand Slams.

The most likely first option is a rematch with Manny Pacquiao where Horn would be guaranteed at least $2 million, a fight likely to be moved from Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium due to potential weather issues around the time of promoter Bob Arum’s preferred slots of November or December. If Pacquiao agrees to the fight, it would be switched to either Sydney or Melbourne, with the latter city boasting the Etihad Stadium, a giant indoor arena where Ronda Rousey lost her UFC title to Holly Holm in late 2015

Roach turned pro in 1978, fighting as alightweight and won his first 10 bouts. Roach trained under legendary trainer Eddie Futchand went 26–1 before appearing in a historic match at the Boston Garden on June 11, 1982. The card that night was the first of two times that all three Fighting Roach Brothers appeared at the same time. Brothers Joey and Pepper won their undercard bouts but in the main event, Freddie lost a unanimous decision to Rafael Lopez.

After playing in the Philippines in 2011, JaVale McGee, who currently plays Center for Golden State Warriors, loved the Philippine brand of basketball and had showed interest in playing for Gilas 1.0. A bill for his naturalization was filed in 2012 but because he got injured, he failed to play for the Philippines.
