Floyd Mayweather’s Facebook claims Shantel Jackson breakup was over abortion

Floyd-Mayweather-Shantel-Jackson-abortion

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is unlikely to stop hurling insults toward his ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson anytime soon, but someone may have officially crossed the line during the childish feud. On Thursday morning, Mayweather’s official Facebook page featured a post that claimed he and Miss Jackson broke up because she decided to have an abortion.

The post, which also included an ultrasound of twin fetuses in the womb, was later deleted. It is unclear if it was Floyd who posted it. SB Nation’s MMA Mania shared the screenshot you see above before the post disappeared.

“The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion, and I’m totally against killing babies,” Mayweather or the person posing as him wrote. “She killed our twin babies. #ShantelJackson #FloydMayweather #TheMoneyTeam #TMT.”

While that post and photo have since been removed, another photo of Jackson was later posted on Mayweather’s Facebook page with Floyd (or whoever was running the account) talking about all the plastic surgery he had to pay for.

Floyd Mayweather wants to buy the Clippers

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has serious interest in buying the Los Angeles Clippers if Donald Sterling is forced to sell the team, the wealthy boxer said Tuesday.

Mayweather met with the media to promote his Saturday fight with Marcos Maidana, and he expressed his interest in purchasing the NBA franchise. He said he spoke with his business adviser Al Haymon, Mayweather Promotions chief executive Leonard Ellerbe and Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer about forming a group to put together a bid for the Clippers.

“I called Al today about that to see if me, Leonard and Al, and hopefully Richard and a couple of other guys, a couple other of my billionaire guys, we can come together and see what we can come up with,” Mayweather said via ESPN’s Dan Rafael. “Hopefully, we can do it, and it’s not just talk.

“With me, I can’t come in talking about Mayweather only gonna get 3 percent, 4 percent. I got to get a solid percentage. Do we want to buy the Clippers? Yes, we do. We are very, very interested in buying the Clippers. We’ll keep the Clippers right where they’re at. When I’m not boxing, I’m at the games all the time. We do want to buy the Clippers. Me and my team do want to buy the Clippers and we can afford the Clippers.”

Mayweather is a regular at Clippers and Lakers games and has long shown off betting tickets for games he wagers on. He said he would stop betting on NBA games immediately as a potential owner.

Mayweather also had some very noteworthy things to say about Sterling.

“Donald Sterling, he’s been getting a lot of negative press and my thing is this — I don’t have nothing negative to say about this guy,” Mayweather said per Rafael. “He’s always treated me with the utmost respect. He has always invited me to games, always. Has always told me, ‘Floyd, I want you to sit right next to me and my wife.’ I don’t know about the mistress. But I’m talking about him and the wife.”

Well, if that’s how Sterling treated Mayweather, then you really have to wonder why he said the things he did on tape. Or maybe Mayweather was one of the few people who earned his respect.

As far as Mayweather’s chances of buying the Clippers go, I think it would be tough. Purchasing groups generally have to be long established and have contact with the league and other owners well ahead of time. This is not something that’s put together last minute. And despite being supremely wealthy as an athlete, Floyd is going to need to partner with several multi-millionaires in order to get the money together for such a purchase. They’re going to need a lot more money than they think. But I’d love to see it happen — Floyd as a prominent owner of an NBA team like the Clippers would be awesome, and you know he’d be able to attract free agents.

Floyd Mayweather rips Manny Pacquiao, says he fought like an ‘amateur’

Floyd-Mayweather-Thunder-BetFloyd Mayweather Jr. typically does not have nice things to say about Manny Pacquiao, so we shouldn’t be surprised that the undefeated champion was less than thrilled with what he saw from Pacquiao in his win over Timothy Bradley Jr. earlier this month. On Monday, Mayweather said the thought both Pacquiao and Bradley fought like “amateurs.”

“I thought that Bradley went out there and fought his heart out, but I think he was pulling a lot of shots like an amateur,” Mayweather said, via ESPN.com’s Dan Rafael. “I think he was making a lot of mistakes and he was very fatigued early on. I think that he was making a lot of mistakes, falling off balance and fighting like an amateur. I think both fighters fought like amateurs.

“I thought Pacquiao fought like an amateur also, and I wasn’t pleased with his performance, but he got the victory the best way he knows how, but I wasn’t pleased with his performance and I’m seeing something totally different in Pacquiao.”

Floyd said he typically does not watch Pacquiao’s fights and claimed the Bradley fight was the first time he watched Manny in several years. Pacquiao may have deserved criticism after his decision loss to Bradley and the knockout defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez, but he beat Bradley pretty convincingly in the rematch.

Still, Mayweather was not impressed. At one point, he even flirted with revisiting his old accusations that Pacquiao once used performance-enhancing drugs.

“I don’t see the same pop in Pacquiao’s shots. Once again, I’m not saying this guy is doing anything, but I don’t see the same snap in his shots,” Mayweather said. “He’s getting tired when he wasn’t getting tired before. I’m seeing something totally different whereas me, I’m still sharp, I’m still smart, I’m not getting fatigued. I wasn’t getting fatigued from the beginning, and those are the things that I see. I don’t know if you guys see it, but that’s what I see.”

Mayweather isn’t exactly what you would call a non-biased opinion. He’s always hating on Pacquiao.

Floyd Mayweather takes cruel Instagram shot at ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson

If you’re wondering why Shantel Jackson broke up with Floyd Mayweather, look no further than what happened over Instagram Wednesday as an example of why.

Floyd — or whomever is running his Instagram account — decided to take a shot at Miss Jackson by posting an unflattering photo of her and facetiously labeling it at his “#WCW,” which stands for Woman Crush Wednesday (an Instagram game of sharing your female crush on Wednesdays):

Floyd Mayweather Instagram Shantel Jackson

Miss Jackson, who was together with Floyd for around four years before breaking up with him a year ago, posted the photo shared by her ex-boyfriend and added the following commentary:

“What woman doesn’t have a day like this. This reason why I left!!! It’s been a year now. Don’t you have a fight coming up.”

Exactly. Doesn’t Floyd have better things to do than post ugly pictures of his ex-girlfriend? He really is so petty.

Don’t worry Miss Jackson, we have your back. Here are some photos of Shantel looking mighty fine:

Joe Rogan thinks Ronda Rousey would beat Floyd Mayweather

Ronda RouseyUFC commentator Joe Rogan believes that Ronda Rousey would beat Floyd Mayweather if the two were to fight.

Rogan was a guest on ESPN2′s “SportsNation” Tuesday and was asked about the hypothetical matchup between the women’s MMA champ and undefeated boxer — a topic that became a popular discussion a few months ago.

Rogan broke down the fight and explained why he thinks Rousey would win.

“It’s all about how much time Floyd has to prepare, because he will really have to work on his takedown defense. That would be the big thing,” said Rogan. “If Ronda got a clinch on him, it’s not just about worrying about being taken down to the ground, it’s worrying about knees to the body. It is worrying about her manipulating his body in ways that he doesn’t understand.”

Rogan said it would take six months to a year of Floyd training with the best trainers in the world to get his grappling to a point where he would be able to contend with Rousey. He also said point-blank when asked that he thought Rousey would win the fight.

“It’s too hard to avoid the clinch. If you watch a Floyd Mayweather fight, they very rarely end in a one-punch knockout. He has brittle hands. His hands break. You are talking about small gloves where hands are going to break even easier. She keeps her chin tucked, hands high and gets a hold of you. There is going to be a lot of things she is doing that he doesn’t understand.”

Rogan was very measured with his analysis of the hypothetical, saying that he only believes Rousey would win that fight now. He allowed that Mayweather could win a fight between them in the future if he had time to train in MMA.

Though some people think this is an absurd thing to say, I agree with everything Rogan said. Boxing is only one discipline of MMA, and it’s not the most effective one in a fight where everything else is allowed. Once an MMA fighter gets a takedown on a boxer, it’s game over. And I think Rousey would be able to get a takedown and beat an untrained Floyd.

Shantel Jackson broke up with Floyd Mayweather, but she definitely got her Instagram back

Shantel Jackson Instagram

Shantel Jackson and Floyd Mayweather were on the rocks in their relationship several times last year, but the two have officially broken up.

Floyd and Miss Jackson were together for around four years and even engaged to be married. The first report about their separation came last June, and several other reports followed. But Miss Jackson attended Floyd’s September fight with Canelo Alvarez, and a few days later Floyd told Howard Stern the engagement was still on. Floyd was probably just trying to save face at that point.

In February we shared that the relationship had been over for a few months, and just a few days ago TMZ confirmed that the relationship is definitely over. But there was some drama in between, which seems to be the pattern for Floyd.

Last week, MediaTakeOut reported that Floyd shut down Miss Jackson’s Instagram account. Apparently Floyd owned the account as part of his business dealings and had her sign an agreement under those pretenses. He let her keep the account after the breakup, but he supposedly repossessed it after she was using it to promote club appearances. Jackson’s rep confirmed that the account was mysteriously shut down for a few days.

I didn’t really notice much with her Instagram account, except she did go silent on April 9 and 10 — right before MTO published their story — despite previously posting things to her account on almost a daily basis. So that definitely seemed to explain things. Whatever the case, Miss Jackson definitely got her Instagram account back.

Since April 11, Miss Jackson has been uploading pictures to her account every day. She’s even promoted club appearances she’s making. And it’s definitely the same Instagram account where she had over 200,000 followers, so Floyd obviously let her keep it.

Below are a few of the pictures she has been sharing on her Instagram:

Floyd Mayweather allegedly had goons savagely beat workers he suspected of stealing

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather Jr. may been in some serious trouble.

According to TMZ, Mayweather allegedly had some goons savagely beat a few workers he suspected of stealing jewelry from him, and the men have supposedly hired legal representation since.

TMZ says the two men who were beaten were hired by Mayweather to work on his Las Vegas homes. After some jewelry went missing, Mayweather reportedly suspected the men of the theft. He then supposedly arranged a meeting with the men at an off-site location.

When the men showed up, they were allegedly beaten by Floyd’s goons nearly to the point of death. The guys used weapons including clubs to beat up the two men.

The two men were hospitalized for several days and had broken arms and legs. They were supposedly adamant that they never stole the jewelry, and Floyd believes that now. But since the beating, the guys have hired a lawyer.

This sort of thing is nothing new for Mayweather. Not only was he charged with felony domestic violence in 2010 for allegedly beating up his baby mama — something he later served jail time for — but he also had domestic violence incidents in 2002 and 2005. Also in 2010, one of Mayweather’s bodyguards was arrested and charged with shooting a man in a parking lot after Mayweather confronted the man. In 2011, a club bouncer sued Mayweather, alleging that the boxer’s bodyguard assaulting him at the club.

Maybe it’s time Mayweather stopped having people beat guys up for him. Maybe it’s also time he stopped having so much jewelry around; it only seems to cause problems for him. Remember when he was robbed of $7 million in jewelry back in 2008? Or how about when his ex-girlfriend allegedly robbed him on one of his fight nights?
