That sounds about right. Still, it's pretty damn funny.

He wasn't being a prick, he was making a joke.

If he wasn't like "you can wave the white flag or go out on your back" before every fight, it wouldnt be such a big deal, but the fact that he promotes fights one way and then gives us a glorified sparring session is what burns me.

His personality is obviously weak. DO you think people with strong personalities have to rely on the villain role? Do you think people with strong personalities have to walk around with 500,000 dollar rings (price tag hanging) and 15 gs of money to "make it rain"? Come on man. Sugar Ray Leonard had a strong personality. He didnt have to throw money at cameras to distract people away from the fact that he had no personality. That's why he got endorsement deal after endorsement deal and was a household name. Floyd has all the skill in the world and the million dollar dollar smile. The only reason that he's not as big as Sugar Ray was in because of his personality flaws.
He can't go for KOs because of his hands. Since his fighting style because of his hands is not fan friendly he matches that with a not fan friendly act to sell better. The fighters that are loved are exciting in the ring in terms of brawling and knockouts. Ali did the whole trash talk better than everyone shit too, but no one now talks about that being a problem.

He did this during the De La Hoya Mayweather 24/7....He has a lot of expensive cars that he does not know shit about, and his friend only knows how to say stuff like 24" in wheels. Floyd is still a dumbass even with all the money in the world.

1) Mayweathers hand problems are long gone. He throws 8000 punches a day in practice. My hands shake badly for hours after only 1/4th of that. You cant tell me he has bad hands if he throws that many. I think when he was younger he was throwing punches wrong and hurting his hands, but now he's corrected that. He sure turned it up and got Chop chop out of there. He just had to put himself in harms way to do it. .. which leads me to Ali

2) Ali talked a whole bunch of mess, but he also put himself in harms way to try to best his opponent without the assistance of the judges. When you watch Ali, you come away knowing that he thought he was the better man regardless of where the fight went. You dont see that with PBF. He's just too cautious.. which wouldnt be a prob like I said... but you cant talk like sonny liston and fight like Willie Pep and expect people to buy your gimic.
