    Default Floyd Mayweather trying to compete with Kanye...

    Floyd Mayweather, who participated in one of the main events of WrestleMania XXIV, made some controversial comments in an ESPN interview pertaining to his race.

    "If Floyd Mayweather was white, I'd be the biggest athlete in America. The biggest, the biggest. I know that for a fact."

    When talking about how he is viewed, he said, "If you're rich, you're a rich n-----," he said. "If you're poor, you're a poor n----. If you're smart, you're a smart n-----. At the end of the day, they still look at me as a n-----."

    His tirade continued with HBO commentators Larry Merchant and Emmanuel Steward (who is black). "Larry Merchant don't know nothing about boxing," Mayweather said. "What's that other guy's name [at HBO]? [Emanuel Steward]. He's an Uncle Tom."

    Mayweather will face Juan Manuel Marquez on Saturday night. The fight can be seen on HBO PPV. WWE's Triple H will accompany Floyd to the ring.

    Oh dear.

    Of course, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Venus and Serena Williams, Lewis Hamilton, etc are actually white so maybe he has a point.

    Boxers never seem to engage the brain before they open their stupid fat gobs.

    And I'm a boxing fan.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    I guess that's what happens when you make a living getting hit in the head

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    it's an act. Floyd is pretty well know for this type of stuff just previous to a fight to get the ppv numbers up. he sells better as a bad guy than a good guy.

    Which justify's his use of the dreaded "N" word...

    why do u care? if he didn't use that word it wouldn't have made the mainstream press which is why he used it. Just to get people who aren't boxing fans discussing him. He's a salesman - he's just doing his job.

    Is this what is known as "having a Kanye moment"?

    I've been watch Marquez/Mayweather 24/7 on HBO. Pretty interesting stuff, Marquez drinks his own urine after every training session

    Anyway, I agree this is a ploy to get press and get numbers up, I have a strong feeling a promoter is behind this. I'll probably watch the fight anyway.
