    What do you think about his current interviews about Canelo? I think he is jealous of Canelo cause Canelo is the face of boxing and has all the advantages Floyd had at his peak. And Canelo is just 31 year old..

    No i dont see it. Floyd gave him his due, but the media want to push the narrative that hes somehow envious of what hes accomplished in the sport. What i do disagree with Floyd about tho, is that he beat Canelo in his Prime. Canelo at that time didnt even develop his man strength yet.

    I'm jealous of everyone 13 years younger than me who has their health so I'm sure he is a little bit.

    It's weird how he gets though, that Menyothin stuff really got under his skin.

    Yes. Floyd wants to be the face of boxing 24/7 for the next 100 years.

    When theres a super star such as Canelo who's taking over in popularity Floyd needs to talk smack about how he beat everyone and made boxing history in an interview immediately.

    Floyd has admitted, on record/on video, that Canelo is the face of boxing. Someone literally asked him in a interview about Floyd still being the face of boxing even retired, and he said verbatim "Canelo is the face of boxing"

    That doesn't sound like jealousy

    Truth is Floyd generated more on PPV this year against a You Tuber in Logan Paul in an exhibition than Canelo did against Caleb Plant for the Undisputed Super Middleweight title. 1 Million PPV buys against 800K PPV buys.

    2 absolute master boxers, that any up and comer would love to emulate

    Canelo learned so much from the Floyd loss and just keeps getting better and better

    Its just Floyd being Floyd. He's always saying random stuff he'll probably say Canelo is the goat tomorrow. I dont take him seriously

    Boxing media rarely asks Mayweather any legit open ended questions and prefers instead to push their agenda and try to put Mayweather in "gotcha" situations.
    I lost all respect for the boxing media during the mayweather years.
    I havent seen the interview to which you are referring, but I highly doubt Mayweather is jealous of anyone he dominated in the ring and out earned at the box office.
    That being said, it is human nature for any top athlete to be somewhat "jealous " of the up and comers once their time has passed.
    Wouldn't read too much into though.
