Default Re: worst Floyd Mayweather Jr. Vid Ever

Don't see anything alarming about this video besides the fact that he gets easily defensive. Maybe he has a right to feel that way seeing as reporters and interviewers never give him a break so he feels like they are always against him. I know he brings it upon himself most of the time but the media should know by now that he isn't always the villain and actually is Mr. Nice Guy at times. Wouldn't you feel irritated if some fool was always sticking a microphone in your face spouting stuff like, "Manny Pacquiao is now widely considered the BEST fighter on the planet. So many people love him. Did you see him on 60 Minutes last night? He's the best. He does karaoke on the Kimmel show and makes the ladies swoon. Did I mention he's the best?"

The reason is whether you like him or not, he is charismatic. And Pacquiao is also charismatic. That alone will get millions of casual fans to watch.

So now I'm starting to believe he could ask for $100 million, and so could Pacquiao. This is a $500 million dollar fight.
i wish his fans learned the meaning of the word "charismatic", before using it to describe floyd. floyd is to charisma, what richard simmons is to masculinity.

Ya in the Brian Kenney interviews and stuff, I don't really mind it because his is pretty much provoked for the most part, but in this case, it really wasn't called for

You guys missed the subtle point that Mayweather was trying to make. he was trying to say that if he where white he would not have had to work nearly as hard to become the success that he is. he would not have to answer all the same question over and over. his word would have been fact the first time (see: Bob Arums treatment in the media.).

Floyd is to 'undefeated' as Pacquiao is to 'knocked out AND outboxed'.

Come on now you can see where the guy was leading to from the gate so that he can get some sound bites to spin in whatever direction he wanted. and i am pretty sure his body language was probably giving it away that he was going to try to Martin Bashir Mayweather.

Hell yeah. Anyone who understands the term and thinks it applies to Floyd is beyond help.

The interview was pretty good till Mayweather became the one asking the questions..

look at the whole video. Where was the interviewer being sarcastic or making snide remarks?

Just chalk it up..it WASN'T a good moment in the Mayweather PR campaign.
