We chopped it up with “Money Making” Floyd Mayweather Jr. again. The dude is down to earth and trying to turn a new chapter in his life. It’s called maturity:
Bossip: What Up Floyd? How you living man?
Floyd: I am doing good… no complaints. Getting ready to get to work with my training.
Bossip: Nice… Is that rib injury all the way healed? Be honest with us…
Floyd: It’s healed…totally.
Bossip: Good. Hey, we asked our readers on Twitter what questions to ask you. Here are some of them…”What would Floyd Mayweather Jr. be doing if he was not a boxer?”
Floyd: Floyd would probably be an entertainer of some sort, if not boxing, something else. I love being in front of a crowd and performing. My family is tight and if we were involved in another part of the entertainment business, I think we would be successful anyway. We are positive people. Media outlets try and bait me, but they know I am far from negative… and Bossip, you know that eats them up. That’s why certain endorsers hate a brother.
Bossip: “Who are you chopping down right now?”
Floyd: No one… Floyd is so focused on my training right now. I don’t have time. That rumor about Tiny was false. I think TI is a pretty good rapper and wish him and his family nothing but the best. Floyd is not making sweet love to anybody else besides this speed bag right now.
Bossip: “Why don’t you stop making it rain in the clubs?”
Floyd: I have. From now on, we are only giving away money to people less fortunate and people in need. I feel I can make a difference in so many people’s lives beyond boxing. I want to give to those that need it now. Being at the age that I am now, my kids are really influential to me and them always wanting to do the right thing is inspiring. So, we don’t make it rain in the “scrip clubs” anymore, now we make it rain at the shelters for the homeless, battered women, and abused kids.
Bossip: That’s what we are talking about. Good to see you doing the right thing with your money now!
Floyd: Praise God and my children.
Bossip: We read an article during the week calling you “racist” because you said something like “only blacks and Latins can box..white boys are far and few between right now,” or something to that effect. Do you want to comment on that?
Floyd: First off, let Floyd start off by saying…”I-am-not-racist.” Secondly, what I said is the truth. White boys can’t box right now. All the best fighters are Latin or Black. We dominate the sport of boxing. MMA is for beer bellied bar brawlers who don’t care about brain damage and technique. Sorry Bossip, I call a spade a spade. The great white hype theory is true…
Bossip: Any predictions on the upcoming Marquez fight Floyd?
Floyd: Just tell Bossip readers to tune in. It will be a good fight. Marquez is not a punk and is a great fighter. I am looking forward to a good fight. He represents hard to the Mexican fans… and I can appreciate that, but he will lose to “Pretty Boy,” it’s inevitable.
Bossip: Cool, thanks for your time again brother. What did you think of the articles we put down with you already?
Floyd: Unbelievable. Unlike other media outlets, you are not trying to bait me in. It’s like speaking to a friend or something. You are one of the only media outlets that has not doctored our interview and made me seem like a bad guy. Thanks man…
Bossip: Now, about those tickets Floyd…
Floyd: You are breaking up… I gotta get back to training. Talk to you next week Bossip.
We “think” Floyd may beat up Marquez for the whole 12 rounds because of Marquez being such a tough cookie; nevertheless, this should be a great fight.
