More racist garbege my PBF
torvix2000
This guy can't seem to shut his mouth up. Going down to the deepest level just to make noise to SELL HIS UPCOMING FIGHT. Gosh...
caneman
I will never be shocked out what comes outta this guys mouth honestly! I am shocked however that he has so many fans & many of them hate a guy like Pacman! It's just really funny to me!
KookedKrack
I agree with Mayweather.

My guess is he says this shit to sell his fights. He knows people are gonna pay to see him lose. It reminds me of an old Muhammad Ali movie. There was this lady that stopped Ali after one of his fights and says "Mr. Ali, I come to every single one of your fights". Ali says, wow, thank you for the love and support. The old lady says, "I don't love you, I just want to be there when someone beats you". It's the same thing here. Floyd knows MMA requires skill. He's a business man in the art of selling and nothing sells better than controversy and sex.

No, PBF believes what he says is true. Just look at his daddy... His daddy runs around saying he is the greatest trainer of all time. Sr filled his sons head with this crap when he was growing up. Now that Floyd can do whatever he wants you are seeing who he really is. Fame and fortune are his truth serum. Its absolutely not an act. He may be saying it to sell tickets but its not an act.

What he is saying may have some truth to it MMA wasnt invented by white beer drinkers, but it has been embraced by that demographic in American society. He just went about saying it in a nasty, kinda mean spirited way. The folks who embraced Gerry Cooney are now MMA watchers because there are no white american english speaking greats in boxing at this time. There are lots of white, english speaking Americans in MMA. From my observation, MMA appeals to the 80's kids who loved Hulk Hogan. They all grew up and realized wrestling was fake. MMA is real and has their attention. There is nobody for them to get behind in boxing.

I think in my own societal observation, what appeals to people is where their comfort zones lie. Race is one of those comfort zones. Everybody wants a champion in all walks of life to reflect the best parts of themselves, race included. You see it in sports, politics and entertainment.

What Money said had hints of truth in it. he just wasnt very tactful about it.

Meh.

Is it me or does Floyd seem to have less fire these days with these 'inflammatory' interviews he likes to give? He seems bored with the whole routine almost.

Dunno. For some reason I'm just not finding him offensive like I used to.

Floyd is a smart businessman buy trying his old tactics of trying to get people to hate him so they buy his fight to see him lose or worse he actually believes his own ignorant BS which is alarming. Floyd said that african/american fighters and mexican fighters rule boxing which was the case in the past but not so much these days. the only reason that blacks and mexicans ruled boxing was because it was one of few limited options they had to escape poverty, nowadays the boxing world is full of all sorts of champions of different colours this is because there is alot more freedom in the world for all people. And floyd saying that there aren't any white boxing champions is complete ignorance e.g. tomaz adamek cruiserweight champion, Kelly pavlik middleweight champion, mikkel Kessler super middleweight champion, Carl froch SW champ, the klitchiko's HW champs, Felix sturm MW champ, Nikolay Valuev HW champ. And recently before they retired Joe calzaghe who is regarded as the best SM ever and ricky hatton although he got annihalated against Manny. Im just stating the facts that either floyd doesn't know much about the divisions above him or he is just being a dick L8R.
D-MARV
Floyd doesn't believe half the shit he says, It's all marketing. And threads like this is just a small example of how his actions are working.


And for the Record... I DON"T agree with EVERYTHING he said but how many "White American" Boxers are there at the top of the sport?

UFC has opened a new pathway for athletes from many different countries and "White Americans" have definitely been effected by that. At least moreso than blacks and hispanics.

I don't want to get into the whole reason blacks and latinos dominated boxing but man that is a very narrow minded statement. If what you say is true, then how is it that we have the Oprahs, Sotamayors, Robert Lawrences, Robert Curbeams, Winston E. Scotts, etc. of the world. I grew up in poverty and am a doctoral student. That is not a very good reason as to why blacks and latinos dominated in the sport.
JD
Boxers are better at boxing, MMA guys are better at MMA.

My issue is the notion that white people invented MMA so they have a sport to dominate because they could not compete in boxing anymore. That is an extremely ignorant statement, especially when we consider where MMA came from, and who really gave it it's push early. Plus, there are plenty of legit white fighters out there...I think Floyd is just one of those that just talks nonsense.

Now if you want to talk about the support for the sports, I will agree, UFC is certainly helped by attracting a decent portion of the white demographic.
Method
What he said was no different, really, than what Hops said to Calz...and I took offense to neither. Who gives a fuck. He's right, for the most part.
torvix2000
Fair enough. But these talks are getting more "out of hand" the more his fight with JMM gets near. He should market his fight not by these dirt level remarks.

It's barely inflammatory now. It's just annoying and stupid. Most of it doesn't even make sense. If his reflexes start to go and he takes too many shots to the head, he'll start sounding like his uncle Roger.

Floyd is a entertainer! A smart businessman, he will say anything to get people to talk about him like we all are here in this thread LOL and come september everyone one of us will be watching him fight ...love him or hate him the man knows what he's doing ...

I actually enjoy his interviews. Hell tell you the truth I enjoy boxer interviews(well the ones that are relevant and you can actually understand). It shows the guys real intelligence. Now how you take what they say is on you. I dont think what he said was racist, it actually made since but he just went about it the wrong way. He's a smart guy but with a small vocabulary so he sometimes use bad choice of words. I'll admit I like MMA but I only watch it to see knockouts or straight up brawls like Liddell vs. Silva. Boxing I watch to see the sweet science, to see skill displayed in a tactical match. I love to see knockouts but if I dont see one it wont bother me cause atleast they are throwing punches and not rolling around on the ground looking for the first opportunity to GAP. I guess you can say I'm attracted to both for different reasons and I think more(not all) White Americans want to see a bloodfest than a display of tactics and skill.. I could be wrong but thats just me.
provo
King Eugene! I totally feel u on that,I love boxing ..MMA I want 2 see stand up that rolling around shit is boring! Imo that shit was made up by someone who couldn't take a ass whooping like a man and go toe 2 toe! LOL.
And with Mayweather im a huge fan ! I love watching his interviews,I love how he gets in his oppenents heads before they fight! The man is brilliant and has got mad skills!

Stop this nonsense about white people wanting to see blood and guts more then tactics and skill. How the heck do you know what most white people look for in a fight? Did you take some kind of nationwide poll? I want to see tactics and skill lead to blood and guts. The two are not mutually exclusive.

I believe there are more white MMA fans than there are more White boxing fans! Hell just look at the audiences at the fights, you hardly see any blacks at MMA fights. Dont get me wrong there do be black fans there, mainly celebrities but not like at boxing matches. Hell you have more black boxers than black MMA fighters. Say what you want but at the end of the day each demographic will support their own!

Basically the way I see it more whites support MMA than boxing now days. Hell go to your local Hooters or bar when they are showing an MMA fight and count the white to black ratio. Then go to that local bar or Hooters for a boxing match and count the ratio. It might just be where I'm at but when they show boxing matches no matter the race of the fighters there are always more black spectators than white ones.

Maybe I was wrong saying that more(not all) white americans look for bloodfest and straight brawls but thats just my opinion. I base that off comments and reactions of MMA fights compared to boxing matches. I wouldn't go as far as calling them all beer drinkers but I do think they are more attracted to that type of action than say a BHop fight.

Like others have said Floyd talks the part, it's an act, everytime he does an interview or a camera comes along he becomes a completely different person. Can't believe any of you would actually buy this.

I agree with you..As far as whites in boxing,I don't agree with..European white boxers are starting to really take over..Floyd forgot to mention asians in boxing..Hell,the P4P king is asian..

I'm not a fan of MMA at all and am a die hard boxing fan..I wanna see skill..Floyd needs to chill out on this shit though..I may not be a fan of MMA and I have talked some shit on here but honestly,I respect every fighter in MMA and boxing..If you're man enough to get in a ring or cage,I got respect for ya..Even if it's only sparring and that's it..

As far as beer drinkers liking MMA,from my experiences,this is kinda true..Drunken bar fights resemble an MMA fight,not a boxing fight..These guys watch MMA fights and then think they can replicate it in the bar..hahaha..

Probably the other way around... Beer drinking knuckleheads are more likely to try to replicate MMA. In fact they'd stand a much better chance at fighting MMA then they would boxing. MMA is all's fair in love and war. Boxing has many limitations that MMA doesnt.
Keith
Boxers are not more skilled then mma fighters. They are much more skilled at throwing and defending against punches. That is only ONE area that mma utilizes during a fight. Are boxers more skilled at throwing and defending kicks, submission tactics, grappling, takedowns and throws, etc. No they are clearly not. MMA fighters have a much broader skill set, Boxers are specialists. I cant explain the difference between fan bases that people claim to have observed, but I can offer you something my bunkmate in the Marine Core used to say when we argued boxing and mma (I prefer boxing) ..."I like UFC cause it looks like a real fight". I have seen plenty of black UFC fighters over the years so maybe its just a matter of time before it catches on in black community.

STEVENSKI
I will need to rewatch it when I get home but the gist of it is that white people suck at fighting so they invented MMA & black people & Latinos dominate boxing.

Lets break this down & see if Mr Mayweather is right in his generalisations or blissful in his ignorance. I have worked from the 4 major title holders & RIng champion. Minor titles & interim titles are not counted. A fighter can only be counted once so even if Pavlik holds 3 belts he is counted once. The list may be marginally out of date as I used wikipedia but serves for a good idea of who is who. I have also not taken into account who is the "true champion' in each weight class


Heavyweight: 3 different champions all white Europeans
Cruiserweight: 4 different champions 3 white Europeans 1 Argentinean
Light Heavyweight: 3 different champions 2 white Europeans 1 white Canadian
Super Middleweight: 4 different champions 4 white Europeans
Middleweight: 2 different champions 1 white American 1 white European
Jnr Middleweight: 4 different champions 1 black American 2 Latinos 1 white European
Welterweight: 3 different champions 2 black Americans 1 Latino
Jnr Welterweight: 4 different champions 1 Asian 1 Latino 1 black American 1 Arab
Lightweight: 2 different champions 2 Latinos
Super Featherweight: 4 different champions 3 Latinos 1 white African
Featherweight: 4 different champions 3 Latinos 1 Asian
Jnr Featherweight: 3 different champions 1 Asian 2 Latinos
Bantamweight: 4 different champions 2 Latinos 1 Asian 1 black African
Jnr Bantamweight: 2 champions 1 Arab 1 Latino
Flyweight: 3 champions 2 Asian 1 Latino
Jnr Flyweight: 4 champions 2 white European 1 Latino 1 Asian
Straw weight: 4 champions 2 Asian 2 Latino

Hmmmm looks like Mr Mayweather is wrong as below shows.

WHITE: 16
BLACK: 7

First of all, there was nothing really "racist" about what Mayweather said, which you have admitted is more based off your hate for Mayweather than what he actually said. Second, most those private non-PC jokes are much more racist than what Mayweather said, and are perpetuated by individuals seeing nothing wrong with them.

Exactly.

Martial Arts has existed for thousands of years. As far as modern Mixed Martial Arts goes as a "sport," then the Gracies should get full credit for it's invention. The UFC was founded by the Gracies (who are from Brazil, btw, for all you "experts") to showcase their brand of Jiu-Jitsu.

MMA has fans all over the world, not just the U.S. It's famous across both Americas and runs the full breadth of Asia and even has roots in Russia and Europe.

To suggest it is a sport for "white beer drinkers" crosses well into full retard. Anyone who agrees with Floyd is also full retard. No apologies, but I will repeat, anyone who agrees with Floyd is full retard. Period.

The UFC's most popular fighters of all time are guys like Rickson and Royce Gracie, Wanderlei Silva, Kazushi Sakuraba, etc...

3 of the 5 current UFC champs are not white. (Penn, Silva, and Machida.) These 3 champs are also the 3 most popular. The heavyweight champ is white, and also happens to be the most hated fighter in the sport's history. And yet the sport continues to grow.

So everyone pulling the racial card, please STFU. You put your ignorance on display everytime you speak.
D-MARV
I don't remember Floyd using the term "White Beer Drinkers". Floyd basically said that more white people choose UFC over boxing. The fact that he said UFC was invented for people who couldn't box was pretty damn stupid but nothing he said was "racist".

"No whites dominate in boxing so whites had to go somewhere else"

It may not be racist per se just a person showing how unintelligent they are for the world to see.

Pretty clear which ethnicities are dominating boxing right now.

LATINO: 21 world champions
WHITE: 16 world champions
BLACK: 7 world champions
ASIAN: 7 world champions

I trust those numbers are accurate coming from you Stevenski. And if so, then they really do tell a significant story.
STEVENSKI
I used Wikipedia & there may be some inacuracies but overall it is a relatively accurate representation. Put it this way it is not like there are suddenly another 10 "black" champions to put them back in a dominant position & I did go off beltholders rather than who the champion is as it can be quite blurry & did not count interim/regular champions if there is a "super" champion. I did not count Pavlik who holds 3 belts as a 3 he is a 1 just like Vic is a 1 & so on.
