Haha Mayweather claiming someone's 24/7 is becoming redundant? Didnt he start waving Benjamins around in the DLH 24/7? How many series has he done the same old shit? Look at my money, look at me. Break, here homeless dude have a turkey, people dont understand the real Floyd Mayweather, break, hey fifty come over here till I smoke your banger, i'm so rich.
I can't knock your statement, but you have to look at how 24/7 is panning out. Imagine this 24/7 with butt-hurt Ortiz and another fighter that's less "verbally entertaining" than Floyd. Yeah, we all get tired of hearing about his money and such, but everytime this dude has a 24/7, the views go through the roof. This is his show and it belongs to him and whoever likes to run their mouth in front of the camera. Pacquiao and Cotto are great fighters and they did great PPV numbers, but people didn't want to hear their stories past the first episode. I guess this is why Floyd doesn't want to fight somebody who's not a big draw or entertaining, because it takes a toll on the build-up.
Mayweather/De La Hoya: big 24/7 because of Floyd's mouth and because of Oscar's name.
Mayweather/Hatton: decent because of Floyd's mouth and Hatton could almost match him (and he had a fan base).
Mayweather/Marquez: simply a build-up to a Pacquiao fight and Marquez had his two battles with Pac to offer as 24/7 material.
Mayweather/Mosley: consisted mostly of Mayweather's mouth, combined with Shane's name/history, BALCO situation, and him interrupting Floyd after the Marquez fight.
Mayweather/Ortiz: still whines about his childhood and he barely wants to talk about his "quit-session" against Maidana, so we are stuck hearing about Kansas and watching Oscar try his hardest not to hold his hand and kiss him.
Mayweather's image may be embarrassing, but it still sells and keeps the sport going.
