Boxing faceoffs are all about mind games. Fighters try to look intimidating, they talk trash, and they get up in each other’s grills all in the name of mind games. Swedish professional boxer Mikaela Laurén took the theatrics to a whole other place during a press conference on Monday when she stood toe-to-toe with undefeated champion Cecilia Braekhus.

Tom Brady was apparently furious on more than one occasion during the Patriots’ 24-17 win over the Jets in Week 6. During the first half when Brady and the Patriots fell into a 14-0 hole, the CBS broadcast caught a particularly unhappy Brady. You don’t have to be a talented lip reader to see Brady’s language wasn’t safe for the broadcast. “He gets mad — he’s in the game,” Rob Gronkowski said when asked about Brady’s emotions in a postgame press conference. “It gets you fired up, and sometimes you’re scared that you got him fired up.
