I'm not Flomo or Pactard but I know good and great boxing skill when I see it. Mayweather has great boxing skills. Now his persona he created since the Corrales fight was used to gain more money. Over 80% of boxers tend to go broke or have money woes after boxing. Floyd saw this coming because before the Corrales fight he was a very generous and nice guy.
He would always show compassion to his opponent no matter if their over matched or not. He wasn't the trash talker and he wasn't the brag type. He was getting payed peanuts by Bob Arum during that time and no one really knew who he was even though he dispatched many good and decent vets and fighters at such a young age yet no one knew who he was. Floyd took the initiative to take on the BAD character persona. Knowing he would be hated but he would be renowned. People will finally pay attention to him and he wouldn't be paid peanuts. You have to understand boxing is a business first most guys who did everything for the fans end up broke and destroyed and those fans turn on them. Put yourself in his position and tell yourself how does it feel?. Mouths to feed, great skill set, no one appreciates you, no one knows you, promoter ripping you off and what would you do??.
Floyd made his own blueprint that till this day many other fighters use or try to use. If people weren't gonna watch this man fight as a good preachy guy and he still get payed peanuts versus watch him only to have his mouth be shut and hope for him to be KO'd but be payed well I think any person probably would make the decision I know they would.
Floyd is a smart business man he played his "Money" character well, so well people actually believe that Money persona is actually who he really is. Because of that persona many of your favorite fighters who fought Floyd got their career best pay day to feed the mouths they need to feed. This man has took on the burden of being backlashed, hated on, spite against, under appreciated, misunderstood and called immature names in order to feed his family and fight in a ring for it. That is no coward. I will never respect when someone can call another man a coward, a coward who fought for 14 years!! A man who knows the side of being that nice guy boxer and knows that you can get ripped off at the end.
Floyd has his own charity work where he provides supplies, food and clothing for the underprivileged and homeless in Vegas and in Rapids plus other places. He has been involved with chipping in a whopping 1 Mill to Breast Cancer research (look it up). The man is also known to occasionally give money to random people if asked.(not all the time) This man also gave money monthly to Genaro Hernandez(R.I.P) the first vet fighter to give Floyd a chance when he was younger. For that Floyd voluntarily gives Hernandez money monthly and since Hernandez passed Floyd stepped up to pay for whole funeral cost. I suspect Floyd to keep giving money to Hernandez's kids/family even after his death because knowing Floyd that man will always be in debt to him. Floyd is a very grateful person. I have some youtube videos to help show and explain the REAL side to Floyd Mayweather Jr. I'm a boxing fan first and Floyd represents that to the highest esteem. Thank you.
