Hotsauce...you gotta check the signs in this. All of this, "I dont give a fuck" attitude that comes from him, is more than the norm. He had that attitude, and put it work in order to reach the pinnacle (after the Oscar fight). When he got that fame that he longed for, you suddenly started hearing shit like, "If you violate, we'll demonstrate".

Thats street shit, and its the quote of street gangs/big gangs known as BMF. BMF took over Atlanta for a while, and Im not sure that its over. That shit stood for Black Mafia Family, or Big Meech Flenory, which was a huge drug trafficking gang down here, and they "demonstrated" when anybody opposed to what they were doing.

Again, Floyd is a millionaire..but hanging around guys like 50 (who grew up in the streets), is rubbing off on him a bit too much. I love to watch him train and fight, but he seems to be getting too involved in this "Money Mayweather" character. Money Mayweather should be kicking ass and collecting...not portraying a street mentality.



eh i don't see that

its just floyd being floyd

However you want to look at it, is cool with me. I just see a rich guy (bored with money), who's trying to be street all of a sudden. Nothing against him and how he trains/fights, but it appears that he's starting to try and live his persona.

Just Floyd being Floyd, I hope i'm not the only 1 saying "what the hell is that" to some of the training methods Pedro diaz has Cotto doing, i'm looking at it like compared to the training Floyd is Putting in makes Miguel look as though he's on vacation. I mean so far that quote from Miguel saying he's gonna work harder doesent seem as though it adds up to what i saw... but i guess 24/7 doesent show you everything.

Floyd Sr. seems as though he was only there for show... BOOM

That bullshit excuse he gave for comin' by the gym in the 1st place was... I meant, "is" comical. When he was explainin' him and Floyd's reconciliation, it sounded like he was tryin' to make that part of the show all about him. I could be reachin', though.

I prefer the 24/7 Floyd over the Face Off Floyd. Faceoff was him trying to be marketable. 24/7 was raw and uncut. I love the part where he says, "Cotto is a HOF fighter. I'm not stupid. I know he's coming in there to fuck me up." and 50 said he leaned to Flyod b4 the Ortiz fight and said "He's tryna stop you from being able to feed your kids." I don't mind shit talking and brashness...as long as it's not scripted. FaceOff seemed premeditated and scripted. Almost like Adrian Broner. 24/7 was just guys with tons of talent and confidence, who know they've been to the mountain top, and whoever wants to knock them off, is going to have to be great doing it. I was disappointed in FaceOff, even though he did show Cotto his much do respect. In 24/7, it looks like he's gonna give Cotto respect but also let him know "You gonna have to make me respect you in the ring with me"

As for Floyd Sr, I think he did want to be a part of the show. And I do think there is some substance to the accusations of him being jealous. That said, I think more than anything though, he is truly hurt that hs relationship with his son is how it is. I think both guys are and both love each other more than they like to portray publicly but are both too proud to admit their wrongs and reconcile. I think that hald hearted hug was actually a way to say "Let's let it go" without actually discussing it. Me and my dad bickered for years. It took some dramatic events in my life to change how we acted toward each other.At the end of the day, we never realy apologized to one another. We just knewin our heads that both of us wanted to put it behind us. "90% of communication is non verbal"

They are so much alike which causes friction plus Sr. was absent for six years at a crucial time in young Floyd's life. Plus you can't forget how Senior and Floyd's mother wasn't the greatest. All that still simmers. As time moves on hopefully both men realize that their relationship for each other is more important than the past hurts.

The best quote from 24/7 was his PETA rant! Classic. Cotto's bathroom shot was outstanding too. 50 has aged and he said some interesting things, like commenting on the jail sentence. I love Cotto's trainer he is like a Jedi, very calm and relaxed and focused. Cotto seemed very comfortable in his role.

The confidence and never say die attitude Cotto has can and will be problematic for Mayweather. How do you stop a guy that isn't afraid to get hit or be beaten? I think this fight has all the makings of a classic. Mayweather will walk away with the W but his face will tell a story of a fight. Good show... Roger looks ten times better. It seems he has been taking care of himself not only that but he did not curse...

Where can I get a Roger Mayweather shirt at??? You don'r know shit about boxing shirt?


haha I thought that shirt was awesome too...As far as Floyd acting street...I don't see that either...just looks like a guy that nobody can tell shit too so he says and does what he feels. I was crackin up when he got on them PETA bums..I remember them messing with Mike Tyson a couple years ago so it makes me wonder why exactly he talked about them..I have much respect for Floyd an 50 and both brothaz are smarter than any of us will ever be so I think everything is calculated. Floyd's only down talk on Cotto was that he was gonna chop his ass up...I hope Miguel responds to that next episode because if he does...all this sorta half assed nice guy from Money will go out the window.

Honestly, at this point, I prefer watching Mayweather train and fight. This Money Mayweather persona is starting to kill me. He's saying that it's a persona, but something leads me to believe that he's vicariously trying to live that lifestyle.

I mean damn, he is a rich so he can buy whatever he pleases, but the whole "hood" mentality is starting to get out of hand. I think I liked his persona, pre Marquez, in which he was more of his flashy self, and less "hood like", or attempting to be.

No matter what people say about 50 Cent, you always have to respect his take on reality issues. I think the bromance with 50 is starting to go to Floyd's head a bit. It sort of reminds me of how 2Pac was this mild mannered, philosophical guy (pre prison term), then he started hanging out with more street cats and started gangbanging in his 20's (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)



that's exactly what it reminds me of!!!

i had a cousin get locked up for outstanding traffic tickets. he was in county for a month. dude was raised in the suburbs and was proper as shit! think carlton banks. he came out talking big and had become gangsta as fuck! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) "is wayne brady gonna have to choke a bitch!?" i laughed so hard at the punk muthafucka...but the sad part...he had everyone else fooled...including himself. he's a crackhead now. it's all tragic. hopefully floyd wakes the fuck up. let jeff and floyd sr tell it...floyd is zero parts hood and actually let all this hip hop gangsta shit get to his head.

You're absolutely correct! As men, it can be hard for us to apologize to each other, because some men take that as a sign of submission. The egos of Jr. and Sr. is definitely the answer to their estranged relationship, on top of past events that they seem to not have gotten to the bottom of.

C'mon man, listen to yourself. Floyd and 50 are "smarter than any of us will ever be"??? Dude, seriously...sit the crack pipe down. You may want to open your mouth and remove Floyd and 50's testi...sigh...nevermind.

That's usually how it goes. I just noticed that he seems to be getting waaay into his character, and he's starting to believe he really is. That's just my observation though. Whether somebody is really street, pretending, or simply wannabes...that on them. I just hate to see them become a victim of it.

Floyd and 50 are crazy rich, and its obvious that 50 has been bored with money for at least the past 5 years now. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) I do give them credit for the money that they've made and their ways of making it...cant knock 'em for that at all.
