    First of all I am a Pacquiao fan. But setting my biased aside. I think Floyd Jr. is a good person, he just seems angry because of how he was raised and what his father did. Floyd is cocky and opinionated but he helps the people around him. He is too kind to them. He lets all these people mooch off him. I feel like people just like to bad mouth him because they're jealous. Too many people focus so much on his negativity rather than for the few good things he does. Well this is just my opinion but whatever lol...

    He's a professional prizefighter who beats women, so I'd say yes.

    I don't know him personally but he seems to have plenty of traits that make him seem less than perfect. I'd still kick it with him given the chance though...

    Yeah, he's a badguy, but who doesn't love a good villain?

    The media decides who is good and who is bad. We just listen.

    If you've ever struck a woman, you're at least somewhat bad. No real way around that.

    Yeah because he wasn't viewed as the bad buy before the domestic violence situation..

    His detractors mostly cite this as the reason they hate Mayweather, but in the next breath they ask him about fighting Rousey.. Oh the irony!
     
  9. Yes. He's horrible. There's a special place in hell reserved for him right next to Hitler, Kim Jung Il and Pol Pot.

    Always be cautious of a person who talks like this.

    That's overly generalized. What about self defense?

    Well that's of course different. Sorry, I assumed that was understood.

    I think he's a good man who has done a few bad things. Most people in his circle speak pretty highly of him, he donates to charities and all that stuff. He seems to have poor taste in women and doesn't have the skills to deal with it however ,and domestic violence is one of those things that society doesn't like to forgive.

    Seems like he cares about his kids.

    I'd say as far as being good or bad,he sits somewhere in the middle,like most of us.

    You people realize that when he beats women, it's just his Money May persona right??

    You realize that if you were to write off every athlete who has made such mistakes, you'd be ignoring a LOT of great athletes?

    You probably don't actually.

    No one watches boxing for the way these guys carry themselves outside the ring. No one cares the Ray Leonard tossed his wife around, no one ever mentions how Robinson supposedly treated women.

    Bad is a non-specific term, making that a really hard question to respond to. He seems more immature and emotionally unstable than bad if I'm interpreting "bad" as a word that implies some type of evil exists there.

    To me he just seems like a million other people who grew up in unstable environments and around immoral guardians. Then he never really had to grow up because he was an athlete with people looking out for him and coddling him. So you end up with an immature and emotional guy with questionable morals surrounded by "yes" men. To me, he seemed like a 17 year old until he was in his 30's.

    To his credit. I think he seems like a better person than his father and uncle combined.
