Floyd Mayweather objects to Justin Bieber question: That’s racial profiling

Some clueless, nosy reporter showed up to Floyd Mayweather’s press conference in Chicago this week and decided to question his relationship with fellow entertainers Johnny Manziel and Justin Bieber. Floyd didn’t care for the line of questioning and even suggested the woman was “racial profiling.”

Floyd Mayweather Peggy KusinskiFirst NBC Chicago reporter Peggy Kusinski asked Floyd about his relationship with Manziel and Bieber, which was likely in reference to this photo. Then she specifically asked about his relationship with Bieber. Kusinski wanted to know if those are friends or marketing partners.

Kusinski said to Floyd, “people think that’s the oddest match-up — you two together.”

Floyd responded that “that’s kind of racial profiling.”

As soon as Floyd objected to the question, Kusinski tried to quickly spin it and ask what kind of music he listens to.

The whole line of questioning was a clumsy attempt by a clueless reporter to put down Floyd. She has no idea about “The Money Team.” She is clueless about how Floyd builds his brand. And she is clueless about how long Floyd and Bieber have been homies. And while she tries to insinuate Floyd’s friendship with Bieber is fake, she’s the one who comes off as a phony with those patronizing looks and questions. And she’s such a professional journalist that she admitted she was a fan of Floyd and even threw in a “lol” about her question.

Nice going, Peggy.

No, it’s not racial profiling to question how Floyd is friends with Bieber. But the question is an example of you being an insulting member of the square media who clearly does not get it.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Ronda Rousey: ‘I don’t know who he is’ (Video)

Ronda-RouseyFloyd Mayweather Jr. and Ronda Rousey will never fight each other, which is probably for the best. For starters, one is a male and the other is a female. They also compete in very different sports, so someone would probably get hurt. But don’t worry, Mayweather has no idea who Rousey is, anyway.

On Tuesday, USA Today’s Bob Velin jokingly asked Mayweather how he thinks Rousey would do in a fight against him.

“Actually, I don’t know who he is,” Mayweather said while shrugging.

If Floyd was messing around he did a great job of selling it. He legitimately looked confused, though it is hard to believe that anyone who fights for a living has not heard of the most popular female fighter in the UFC. Maybe that was just Mayweather’s way of fluffing off people like Joe Rogan who say Rousey could take him.

Either way, that reaction was pretty damn funny.

Floyd Mayweather gives girlfriend Bad Medina Rolls Royce for birthday

Floyd Mayweather Bad Medina

Floyd Mayweather sure knows how to treat those in his inner circle.

Mayweather posted a video on Instagram Saturday night showing off the new car he got for his new girlfriend’s birthday.

Bad Medina Rolls Royce

“I know your birthday is on July 27th but here is an early birthday gift @badmedina,” Mayweather wrote.

Mayweather also shouted out the luxury motor company that made the purchase possible, indicating to me that he may have received a kickback or that this was a gift as part of some advertising deal.

While we don’t necessarily know if that was a paid plug or not, what we do know is that the car is a conditional gift to Medina; Floyd maintains control of what he gives his girlfriends. If they break up, he repossesses the gifts, just like he did with Shantel Jackson, his ex-fiancee.

In other words, don’t get too used to the ride, Medina.

As for Medina, her full name is Doralie Medina. She has been a part of Floyd’s circle for quite some time — even when he was together with Miss Jackson — meaning she was probably just part of his rotation of women. Once Miss Jackson moved on, Floyd quickly picked Bad Medina as his new girl.

Medina’s previous role in The Money Team was unclear, but her new role as Floyd’s main boo is pretty obvious — she joined him for red carpet events recently at the BET Awards. Medina also has started a cosmetics line that Floyd has been helping to promote.

Canelo Alvarez rips Erislandy Lara for running from contact

Canelo Alvarez Erislandy Lara

Canelo Alvarez beat Erislandy Lara by split decision on Saturday night in Las Vegas and is in no hurry to schedule a rematch.

After his win, Canelo ripped Lara for running instead of engaging during their fight.

“I came to fight. You don’t win by running a marathon. You win by punching and connecting,” Alvarez said in his post-fight interview. “He has a great jab, but you don’t win a fight that way. I want to leave fans satisfied. This wasn’t the fight I expected. I wanted a toe-to-toe fight. He began to run more after he was cut. He didn’t come to fight, he came to run. He’s a great boxer, I respect him. But he has to throw more punches.

Canelo also dropped this bomb on Lara.

“When he learns how to fight, I’ll give him a rematch.”

Lara felt much, much differently about the way the fight went. He thought he won it.

“100 percent (I won). I fought my fight, and I know I won. I was controlling the rounds, and I made him look bad in front of his fans … Nothing changes, I still dont have respect for him, I want a rematch. I’m 100 percent sure that I can fight the same way and beat him again.”

Paulie Malignaggi again critical of Manny Pacquiao over drug testing

Manny PacquiaoPaulie Malignaggi was at it again last week criticizing Manny Pacquiao and insinuating the Filipino champion has been on performance-enhancing drugs during his career.

Malignaggi’s accusations about Pac-Man go back to 2009 when he was suspicious of the Filipino fighter’s ability to seemingly gain power as he went up in weight classes. As recently as April, the Brooklyn-born fighter and boxing analyst took some shots at Pacquiao, saying he’s not a very good or intelligent fighter.

On Monday, Malignaggi fired off multiple tweets aimed at Pacquiao over the Filipino ducking drug testing during his career.

I don’t give credit to guys who hide and duck from random drug testing while accomplishing things that seem pretty amazing,” Malignaggi wrote to start his Twitter rant.

Paq should have been the first to volunteer for those random tests when he was destroying people while constantly jumping weight classes,” he continued. “Instead, he ducked and dodged them. So no, until I see a destructive Pacquiao performance for a fight in which he submitted to random drug testing, I will not give that credit.

This sport needs to be take in the right direction and a guy with his popularity should have been the first one to set the example and volunteer for it. Instead he dodged it during a time when he shouldn’t. Which leads anyone to wonder if that was the whole reason for his sky rocketing 2 fame in the first place.”

I’ve expressed many of the same thoughts about Pacquiao’s ascension as Malignaggi did, so it’s hard to say he doesn’t have multiple valid points.

Paulie, who is 33-6 in his career with only 7 knockouts, says he has been clean throughout his entire career and that he can look himself in the mirror knowing that. Can Pacquiao say the same?

Floyd Mayweather shares strip club videos

Floyd-Mayweather-strip-clubFloyd Mayweather Jr. was busy being Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Saturday night, but he wasn’t too busy to share it with all of his followers on Instagram. Apparently the “no cell phones” policy doesnt apply to The Money Team, because someone in Floyd’s crew recorded a couple of short clips of the boxing champ sitting at the stage enjoying the show.

“I f***ing love my life,” Mayweather wrote along with the video you see above.

Mayweather also posted a video that showed him mesmerized by dat ass.

I think we can all guess what happened next.

Ruslan Provodnikov complains about Chris Algieri’s fighting style

Ruslan ProvodnikovRuslan Provodnikov looked like he was going to cruise to victory Saturday in Brooklyn against Chris Algieri, but things changed pretty quickly.

After Provodnikov got two knockdowns in the first, Algieri rebounded and outworked the Russian the rest of the way. He won a split decision, winning by scores of 114-112 on two of the judges’ cards. Though Provodnikov got the early knockdowns, he admitted after his fight that Algieri’s style was not for him.

“I have to admit, runners are not my style,” Provodnikov said in a post-fight interview with HBO’s Max Kellerman, according to a translator. “He’s just jabbing and touching me. I can’t feel any of that, but it’s not my style. I like guys that stand there and fight me.

“This is the worst style for me,” Provodnikov complained.

Kellerman, who like Jim Lampley and Andrew Ward thought Provodnikov won the fight, pressed the Russian on the issue. Provodnikov had the same response.

“I said it before — it’s just not my style. He just ran and he just touched me. He just jabbed and touched me. I didn’t feel any of that, but obviously I have trouble with that style.”

Based on those responses from Provodnikov, I think we can safely cross a rematch with Algieri off the list of his potential fights. We can also safely scrap any plans for Provodnikov to move up in weight to face Manny Pacquiao, too.
