Floyd Mayweather is arguably the best boxer in the world right now. However, he’s not the best citizen in the world. After his controversial fourth round knockout of Victor Ortiz, Mayweather wasn’t satisfied. Mayweather began to lay into post fight interviewer Larry Merchant. Mayweather claimed Merchant has never give Mayweather a fair chance and Money challenged Merchant to a fight. The kicker in all of this? Merchant is 80 years old and would have better luck pushing an SUV than fighting Mayweather.
As a Mayweather fan, I love his brash attitude. However, he goes too far too many times. I understand his frustration at people knocking him for his supposed ducking of Manny Pacquiao, but he needs to grow up. Challenging an 80 year old to a fight isn’t exactly good public relations. I don’t think Money cares, as his only goal is to be known as the best. To be the best, you have to face the best. Floyd, you need to take on Pacquiao. Otherwise, people will continue to think the worst of you.
