Floyd being lighthearted and candid with the troops: http://boxscorenews.com/mayweather-breaks-...n-p25941-68.htm

Yep, read about that just a few minutes ago on boxingscene. Waving $100 bills at the camera in front of guys who are fighting a dirty war in a desert for piss poor wages showed all the class I have come to expect.

I haven't seeen the video yet, but as far as the disrespect that he is supposedly showing to soldiers, I'm not making any excuses for him if he was disrespectful, but I find it very disingenous whenever I see "outrage" at him for doing immature shit like that - if it's as described. I don't think that's any worse than the stuff that goes on in the world of high finance (obscene wages for absolute incompetence and a blatant disregard of anything that even resembles ethical behaviour) and the gazillion chances that are given to people like lindsey lohan, paris hilton etc. To reiterate, I'm not blindly making excuses for actions like that, but I'm just tired of what I perceive to be a double standard.

I've now read the article and I think that it was nice of him to take the time out to have a "one on one" conversation with those guys for 2 hours and his action re. the $ was in the context of a very informal chat with the army guys, who from the photo were enjoying speaking with Mayweather.

Where's the double standard? I think the likes of Paris Hilton and some Hedge Fund managers are cunts too, however as this is a boxing forum and not www.HedgeFundHype.com they are not really up for discussion are they?

I'v been thru this a few times over the years, not just on the subject of Floyd. I have a deep objection to boxing fans on a boxing forum discussing boxing as a business rather than a sport. I know thats the cold facts of life but it doesnt mean we as fans should accept it and give fighters passes to duck and dodge and select opponents based on who is a draw and shit like that.

Cheesey, I agree it was decent of him to take time out for the troops. Specially considering those boys are dying, as are ours, in a country where they have no business.
However, like Ollie said, I find it extrememly crass to be waving hundred dollar bills in front of servicemen of all people, who make ends meet by leaving there loved ones to go to a warzone for 6 months at a time then get kicked to the kerb when they are too old to fight and mostly end up with not a pot to piss in. Specially when you earn those $$$'s in a few weeks of "work" per year.

And no double standards from me either. You will never know because I dont know words strong enough how much I hate the banks, stockbrokers, etc who caused the crisis that the working man is now paying for.

Flashing money is apart of his act. Just ignore the fact that he spoke to the troops in the first place. And I am sure those guys got a kick out of it. How many hours have you spent with the troops? It was classy that he spent time with them, and I am sure they appreciated the Mayweather experience.

I like your post, and agree with it. The fact that so many people do not do a damn thing for our military have the nerve to critize someone who took time from a busy schedule to talk them. SO what if he flashed money in front of the camera, its apart of May's personality. I don't hear the troops complaining.

I wasn't there that night. Victor Ortiz really wasn't there after he got hit with that can opener in the 5th round. He really wasn't there. Manny Pacquiao is going to get the beating of his life. So is Victor Ortiz. If a fighter lke Maidana can expose Ortiz, then Mayweather will have an easy time picking this kid apart. I hope he shows some heart when those lightning fast right hands begin to find their home on Ortiz' chin. Be a man kid. You wanted to be a world champion. Now you are a world champion and guys will be coming for your head. Just your luck that you land the best fighter in the world for your first defense. Your reign on the top is short like Manny Pacquiao.

Oh... so waving money is now illegal.
People wear expensive jewelries and drive expensive cars too -- are those illegal now as well?

And c'mon... fighting a dirty war?? Piss poor wages?? What are you talking about??
These troops went INTO Afghanistan (not the other way around). It's not like the Afghans came to their homes and they're forced to stand their ground fighting till death. They chose to go there.
And they're well fed... very well fed. And they get a lot of leisure time too (and as you can see they even get the time to talk to their fav stars via Skype). Actually there's no "war" going on in reality over there. They're just stationed there for maintenance. Sure there are gun fights and a few bombs going off the streets there once in a while, but those aren't "war" per se -- only like street anarchy -- not a "real war" that involved tanks and fighter jets and those stuffs that would put up a REAL fight.

Wake up.

You are a fucking idiot. Have a look at this website. Thats at least 2,613 families that I hope aren't reading your stupid bullshit.

I never said waving money around is illegal, I just happen to believe its completely unneccesary, tasteless and classless. Especially in the context we see here.

I couldn't agree more. we just lost one of our guys in an ambush over there. Try telling his family there isn't any 'war' over there and they have plenty of 'leisure time.' What a fucken cunt.

Presumably he also didnt read about the chopper that was brought down in August in which 38 soldiers, including 30 Americans and 22 Navy Seals were killed.

Suppose they were just unlucky to be killed by some rag tag street anarchists when they were on their way to get a steak then go for a skype session with Justin Bieber.

Don't forget the leisure time over there though, that's a big plus. Skype obviously works pretty good as well.

Yep, plus crazy buffalo has also debunked my theory that soldiers get shitty wages. Must be different in America than it is here cos our boys dont get paid very well.

To be honest, now that I know US soldiers are highly paid, well fed maintenance techs who have plenty of leisure time maybe I should hop the pond and sign up for uncle Sam. After all, the soldiers chose to go there, so I presume if I dont fancy it or I forget my skype password I can just stay at home and wash tanks.

Must just be the rest of the coaltion who deal with the IED's, roadside bombs, mortar attacks, RPG's and general skullduggery of the street mob.

A soldier ask him what motivated him to continue to box and to train the way he does. He took out a bill and said this does.... How is that tasteless? Then he said he does it for his family and fans. How was it bad?

When another Soldier questioned him on how he stays motivated, Floyd stood up in front of the camera, pulled 100 dollar bills from his pant pocket, numbering in the seemingly thousands, and flushed the screen with what could only be "chump change” to the world class fighter and entertainer


I just find that tasteless. Taste is a personal thing. Being a person of socialist ideals (like you claimed to be) I find unneccessary gloating about personal wealth and material possessions to be a little tasteless. I dont care for people like Floyd who know the price of everything and the value of nothing. People like Floyd are only interested in telling other people what they have that we cant afford.

Son, you better get it together and stop being such a whiner.

I don’t have time to go in circles with you.

What are you crying about??

Some soldier bit the dust in Afghanistan… yeah big deal. It’s called “Profession.” If you SIGNED UP for something, you better be prepared to take the risk. Death is not something to be happy about, but it’s part of the risk in the Soldier business. You know what I mean kid?

It’s like whining about some prostitute getting AIDS and then crying for people’s SYMPATHY. Hey, it’s called their “work.” They don’t wanna get AIDS (and none of us wish them that), but its part of the RISK in their Profession.

Of course in every profession there is risk. God forbid the worst, but when the worst happens, it happens. You know…

I mean Floyd’s been fighting so many years now and every time he gets in the ring he also gets hit. But he don’t go around whining about the physical pain he endures in this Profession that’s called Boxing. It’s called being Professional. You wanna box then you gotta be prepared to take the risk of being HURT.

Life goes on. Grow up.
streetlion1
I dont expect anything less from Floyd and likely anyone who wanted to meet him already knew how he was. An arrogant asshole with no humility.

As for the contract I hope its true....I wont hold my breathe but I wanna see the fight for one reason....for the Pac-May argument to go away!! What will also go away is the false notion that alot of people think Manny is a beast.

CrazyBuffalO has written perhaps the most outrageous drivel I have ever encountered on this, or any other message board for that matter.  Utterly astonished how somebody could have such a fantastically delusional opinion and astounded even further how they haven't deleted the offensive literature in ashamed disgust.

Allmenjoi doesn't quite reach such levels of derisory self humiliation but she is not far behind with her continuous habit of defending the in-defensible.  I suggest she has an under developed brain and seek to pity her.  Floyd is an imbecile, witless, clueless, classless.  As spurious a character as you'll likely to ever see.

A lot of people that go into the forces do so out of a sense of 'duty'. Yes it is a profession as well but gee don't you think just like the firefighters that rushed into the Twin Towers on 9/11 they should take some extra credit for taking on a profession that doesn't pay anywhere enough as opposed to the risk they are under?

Or would you dismiss those same firefighters as just having another day at the job? Certain professions should demand our respect and anone who puts them self in harms way on behalf of my country has mine you classless fuck.

Ummm clearly you haven't heard many Floyd interviews, he does his fair share of whining about how his body can't handle it blah blah blah. You've got to remember that this is the same douche who when offered a multi-million dollar contract years ago from HBO (and well before he was a bona fide PPV star) dismissed the offer as 'slave wages.'

Now if you think thery're not paying you what yo deserve then fine, but slave wages? Dayum.

I have an under developed brain? If my comments are you say they are this person with an undeveloped brain has caught your megamind's attention (there is a philosophical argument that argues the mind and brain are in fact the same space but different.

Stupid he isn't, witless he is not (his one liners are actually amusing), clueless (look at his thoughts about race issues on Mayweather after dark, he is actually very aware), and last classless in what way? Because he doesn't act the way YOU want him too, I have two words for you......

i donate to the USO, Wounded Warrior and a few other charities. my brother in-law was in the Army but now he's in the reserves, i took him and some of his friends to a Magic game and picked up the tab on everything. i don't know if Mayweather donates to the USO or anything else but if all he can do is get on Ustream and say "check out the big boy mansion" that's corny.

I'm so over this type of comeback. Of course most of us are going to watch this witless, clueless, classless imbecile fight in two weeks. He's a terrific fighter, no one has ever tried to deny that. If you're a boxing fan - which you'd have to assume anyone who spends time reading posts on this MB certainly is - then you're gonna want to watch this spurious shitbag fight (great word btw Sen). And if you're a boxing fan who is going to watch this fight, then chances are you're at least checking out 24/7 from time to time. Not because you're amused by this spoiled brat's embarrassing antics, but because you're interested in the product (the fight, not the asshole) being promoted.

floyd is witty compared to most boxers. im not really that obsessed with his antics on 24/7, i never even watched most of episodes of that show, but when i have, floyd is usually the best thing about it. ortiz is one unctuous motherfucker. he keeps talking about the past as if it has any bearing whatsoever on what happens inside the ring. if that were true, Cintron wouldn't be sucha a fuckin pussy

Allmenjoi doesn't quite reach such levels of derisory self humiliation but she is not far behind with her continuous habit of defending the in-defensible.  I suggest she has an under developed brain and seek to pity her.  Floyd is an imbecile, witless, clueless, classless.  As spurious a character as you'll likely to ever see.

Sorry for the rant. 


Oh shut the fuck up. Defending the "indefensible"!? Floyd takes time out of his training to spend some time with the troops and apparently a good time was had by all there except for some assholes on the internet like you who weren't there and have their panties in a bunch about Floyd's silly response to one of the questions the soldiers asked him. It's also hilarious that you are ranting like a loon about things like class while you've attached a ridiculously tasteless and childish photo to your post. Yeah, attaching a crotch shot to your posts of a girl in miniskirt using her middle finger to cover up her goods is REAL classy. Idiot.

No, it was not ironic. It was on point unlike your response.

waving money like that is tasteless, fuck me I at times feel embarrassed just saying I have this or that when I know that person can't have this or that. tell me those arguing for Floyds defence couldn't he of just said, money motivates me, end of story. I think its pretty disrespectful, even stupid how athletes can earn that amount of money and then people that defend our countries get payed so little.

I get where you are coming from though you are conflating some issues, but in the end, it's irrelevant. The bottom line is that Floyd spent time with the troops and that was a good thing. The troops seemed to enjoy his visit and that was a good thing. Anything else is just noise.

embarrassed about what you earn? fake modesty is its own form of tastelessness. those troops didn't give a shit. if you want big money, go out and earn it. you can if you truly want it.

Athletes aren't paid by the importance of their occupation, but by how much their worth is determined by the market they're in. i don't know if that is fair or not, but someone is paying somebody for how much their service is worth to them. it makes sense. if you're sitting around begrudging other people's success, then you're the one being disrespectful. to yourself.

i can respect that. the soldiers didnt seem to be having a problem with it otherwise it would probably be heard all over the world

Those troops aren't pinching pennies over there, trust me. In retrospect, Floyd can be an idiot in real life, but the "Money Mayweather" thing is an image...and I can see how a conjunction of his true character and his boxing image can seem to make too much sense at times. Athletes get paid based on their talent (if its a sight to see) and their personality (if its a sight to see).

It's called entertainment, and no matter how dumb, clueless, and classless these people are, that's what makes them entertaining and embarrassingly addictive to watch. People with sense don't want to be caught dead acting like these characters or they just dont have the heart to live like that, so they pay (money or time) to watch these folks do it.

Talk to Congress about why troops get paid so little, it has nothing to do with May waving around money. And if they protect or "freedoms" isn't that his right to express his freedom to wave around money.

The reason he showed his 100 bill was because: a soldier asked him what motivates him, as a response to the question he took out the money and said this is what motivates me... why is that a bad thing. Most people are motivated by money? Why do people fo to work everyday... to get a fuckin pay check. That is it. So save the he is disrespectful rant! How many hours have you spent with the military? When did you invite a service member in your house? Exactly. If you don't like how much money athletes are earning stop supporting them. Teachers should be making that amount but our focus isn't on education but entertainment that who get the green. Supply and demand
