Full Version: Big Floyd just called me at the house.
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing
The CEO
After the chat tonight, I was the one fortunate enough to get the call....I must have smiled for 30 minutes straight after we hung up... biggrin.gif

I casually told my wife..."hey...Floyd Mayweather Senior is about to call me..."....lol

The phone rings....Percy Crawford introduces himself, and we ask each other how we were doin'.....he then said he had Big Floyd on three way....you sounded pretty chill there, Percy btw...I know you smoke....laugh.gif....anyway....off we went...

It all happened so fast it's hard to remember everything....but I asked him how he was doing, and that it was very cool that he was calling me....he said that this is his job, and this is part of what he does....I told him I was shocked that I heard he was in talks with Hatton about training him...and that being shocked is something different for me....lol....he said...."you want me to shock you, _____?....you know Fernando Vargas?....you know when he fought Mosley?"

I was like, "yeah...yeah."...I thought he was gonna give me some juicy insider gossip....but instead he went right into The Tale of Mosley-Vargas....flowin'....rhymin'.

He must have had it memorized because it didn't seem like he was reading or anything....he didn't stutter one time....it was pretty impressive. He went on for about 2 minutes straight....I was just listening and chuckling here and there....

Talking about Tito....Vargas' broken eye sockets....fat pockets....Vargas had to recoup drinkin' soup...lol...all kinds of stuff....I told him I knew about his poems, and that it was a good one...

Percy then asked if I had any questions....but I really didn't have any after all that were asked in chat, and I didn't want to take up any more of his time....I just thanked him and told him I appreciated him....and that was it....it was a pretty damn cool.

I've followed Boxing religiously for over 30 years, and that was the first time I've ever spoken with someone that high profile in the business .....it's fitting Big Floyd was my first...his "pull no punches" opinions, hilarious insults, and entertaining personality is right up my alley.

Thank you, Ben, Percy....I needed that.

I had to chuckle at that...LOL...but actually, no...Percy ain't the one who smokes...laugh.gif

But seriously man...no problem...our pleasure...I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I don't think I've had the pleasure of hearing The Tale of Mosley-Vargas.

That's great man.

Good stuff.

I really like Big Floyd a lot and it's nice to see others get a chance to appreciate him as well.

That's awesome man.

Thats cool C.

Big Floyd is one of my favorite trainers. He just doesn't give a shit..
The CEO
What's great about Big Floyd is that most of his brash (and what some others believe are outlandish) opinions are usually dead on.....he knows his shit and is an original....you can really tell he don't give a DAMN what people think about him.....not many people can express themselves like he does and not have to worry about repercussions.....he knows SOMEONE is gonna pay for his services....and pay big.... he kinda reminds me of Big Ern McCracken after he beats The Munson for the million...."I'm Big Ern. I'm above the law!"......

This whole Hatton thing really blindsided me in the chat though....seeing how Big Floyd has bashed Hatton in the past and is one of the main guys I keep an ear open for....it kind of upset me to be honest...lol

but hey....it just goes to remind me and everyone else....that at the end of the day....Boxing is a business. The personal shit is taken with a grain of salt and can easily be forgotten in exchange for money and results....

I didn't even know we did chats? Was this some secret shit..laugh.gif

Big Floyd and Roger remind me of some old school cats from my old neighborhood, I'm talking exactly the fucking same man.

That is cool CEO, it sounds like his flow was funny which is something you can expect with Floyd Sr. I enjoyed that chat last night & hearing the questions & what the answers were. I was pretty blindsided by the whole training Hatton thing myself! I mean Hatton with a defense & a shoulder roll...as Floyd Sr would say "come on man", as someone said to me about it..."it sounds too much of a square peg in a round hole" but who knows if Hatton can actually listen & do what he is told in the ring & in training...Lord knows he needs some defense BADDDDDDDDDDD! laugh.gif

Talk about FREAKY. I just read your post. Go to Hype's blurb on the front page and read my comment...literally written 5 minutes before I read yours.

Had no idea about the chat...then again, got no computer at home right now anyway.

Went by Apple store last night, and they had a fucking line outside you had to wait in. I went up to the "bouncer" and was like, "what's the deal?". He was like, "We're short staffed, so you need to wait about 10 minutes. Are you here to browse? Are you here for a phone, ipod...?". I said, "I'm here to drop about $2,800 on a computer. Do window shoppers take prevalence over buyers?". "No", he said, but unfortunately...". "See ya, dude".

There going to be a chat transcript?

you should have just hung up on him. "Floyd who? Nah, man you got the wrong number."
The CEO
laugh.gif.....I really wasn't prepared for the call....it was immediately after the chat finished....so many things were going through my mind.....things to ask, things not to bring up....so I decided to play it cool....to just listen and receive the blessing this time....

That would have been funny as fuck.

Once again Hype owns the comp. I suspect that these are real chats as well.
