Wow, this interview sure explains a lot. In an interview with The Grand Rapids Press, Floyd Mayweather Jr. revealed a lot about himself and his feelings that can really help to explain what’s been going on his career lately. Before I get to the part where Pretty Boy hammers Jim Lampley and calls HBO’s boxing announcers racist, I’ll share some of what I found quite interesting.
Pretty Boy says that he was coerced into pleading no contest in a case where he hadn’t done anything just to clear the incident up so that he could fight on pay-per-view. He also says that he’s made such strong investments that he expects to be a billionaire by the end of the year. Now that’s highly debatable, but it tells us that he doesn’t need boxing anymore because he’s already seemingly set for life. Additionally, Floyd expressed a desire to be in good mental and physical state later on in life, which helps explain why he’s in no need to fight anymore. OK, now on for the real meat.
