Floyd “Money” Mayweather may be a great boxer, but he’s not a great human being. Actually, he’s a pretty terrible human being who is far meaner out of the ring than in it. First there’s what he had to say about the man he refuses to fight, Manny Pacquiao:
"As soon as we come off vacation, we're going to cook that little yellow chump… Once I stomp the midget, I'll make that mother f----- make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice…. We gonna cook that mother f----- with some cats and dogs. ... Rice with [a] little bit of cat, rice with a little bit of barbecued dog.”
Then there’s the recent report (I say recent because it happened in 2008 as well) of Mayweather parking his Mercedes-Benz at an angle through two handicapped spots. Mayweather exchanged some heated words with a bystander before taking his sequined satchel filed with $200,000 in cash to the bank to deposit.
Do you think he kept enough cash on hand to play telephone with 50 Cent with giant stacks of cash?
And then there’s all of this:
2002: Convicted of two counts of domestic violence and one count of misdemeanor battery.
2004: Convicted of misdemeanor battery of two women in a night club.
2005: Acquitted of assaulting his girlfriend after she changed her story on the stand. He also pled no contest to misdemeanor assault.
2009: Mayweather’s home was searched after his car and one of his associates was identified fleeing the scene of a Las Vegas shooting.
2010: Arrested and charged with three misdemeanor harassment charges, felony grand larceny, two felony coercion and one felony robbery charge. And he probably would have been arrested for a confrontation with rapper Rick Ross had Diddy not intervened.
2011: Arrested for misdemeanor assault, stemming from an incident in October 2011; Mayweather threatened to have security guards shot for ticketing his cars. Witnesses alleged Floyd said:
"My homies have guns. If you want me to call them, they'd come over here and take care of you. These are my f**king cars. Don't touch my f**king cars."
I will say this much... I certainly wouldn't touch his cars.
