Manny Pacquiao is probably the most beloved athlete in the world. He's certainly the most loved boxer. By simple deduction, Money May is then the current most hated fighter in the world.
By being one of the only boxer considered to be able to beat Pacquiao, Mayweather gets a lot of hate from the fans of the Filipino champion.
Let's admit that Mayweather doesn't help himself. Sometimes, the line between confidence and arrogance is thin. Pretty Boy might have crossed that line a few times in his career.
“I’m better than Ali.”, Mayweather once said. He was also quoted saying: "I am the face of boxing, and I am here to clean it up."
Most undefeated boxers are disliked by a vast majority of people who want to see them lose. Still, his recent legal problems have only been a new argument for his detractors.
I don't believe that all this hate gets to Mayweather. Actually, he loves the attention and is always glad to take his paycheck after each win when several millions of fans hope to see him lose.
Hate him or love him, but watch him on the ring...
The more attention he gets, the bigger his paychecks are at the end of the day!
