he didnt need to fly over anyone there was big demand for tickets. If floyd ever went to another country, lets say he fights marquez in mexico, how many mayweather fans not employed by mayweather would travel to the fight and support mayweather? im guessing none! a lot of boxing
fans from the us would but thats it.
In the ring I dont think you can discredit his record.You are entitled to argue he was not a GOAT legend but I think he did a more then a adequate job of cementing his name in the list of fighters we will remember forever.
