Default How Do you feel about Floyd Mayweather and why?

Floyd clearly has alot of haters and sometimes i cant see why.. i understand he flashes his money all around like an idiot sometimes and talks alot of trash that his style of boxing could never live up to... but the man is a mastermind and he does all that for a couple reasons

1- to hype fights
2- to portray a "hip hop" lifestyle which some what follows reason 1

he does all this garbage to put on a show and its kind of a way to celebrate how far he has came... you gotta admit... if you were a millionare it might be fun to just run around as arrogant as you can possibly be because the reality of the situation is .. your a great person

in reality floyd is probably as regular as the rest of us and likes to put on a show and it works becasue hes a boxer.....


or maybe im just to big of a fan...

anyways what are your thoughts?

Floyd Mayweather is one of the best boxers I have ever seen. He's got speed, reflexes, timing, counterpunching, versatility, a chin, and great defense. I hate his personality and I hate the way he carries himself outside the ring, but that doesn't cloud by judgement on potential matchups with him. He could very well beat everybody down from 154.

what i dont understand is why dont people like how he acts outside of the ring. When the way he acts outside of the ring is a big show. Its like a big joke to him and he succeeds at it because people fall victim to it and "dislike him"

I dig Floyd...mainly cause he's the most hated on outta all the boxers who get hated on on here. They search for *****s in his armor, but can't find any...all he does is win, baby! They knock his street credibility...like they know what hood is. They say he's flashy...who wouldn't be? Simply, they just hate to love him!


what a dickhead

Whether its for show or not, I think he comes off looking like a total jackass %90 of the time I see him on TV, but I will say that he is one of the most talented boxers I have ever seen.

Floyd is a grown ass man and if he CHOOSES to represent himself as an ass its EVERYONES right to take him for what he SHOWS us. Maybe he kisses babies and hands $100 bills to the homeless when there is no TV camera there, but thats not what we the general public get to see. He chooses what he shows us and should not complain when he gets the feedback hes been getting.

On top of that, it's been made clear on numerous occasions here, that he's from a middle class background. Lived in the suburbs and whatnot.

So what would he know about "da hood".

very true. But he probably really dosen't vare about any feedback from the public. He knows he's got his fans and the other people that hate him will pretty much pay for any of his fights, just in the hope that he loses. Kinda like Hamed only a lot worse.

Floyd Mayweather is a wonderful wonderful boxer. He has no real weakness's boxing wise. As a person he grates on my nerves and he bullshits more than any person i have heard speak.

Great boxer, Annoying man.
