HBO's award-winning franchise "24/7" returned tonight with the premiere of "24/7 Mayweather/Cotto", the all-access reality series following undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather and WBA jr. middleweight champion Miguel Cotto as they prepare for their May 5 showdown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. For fans that were awaiting the return of Floyd Mayweather and his larger-than-life personality, Episode 1 did not disappoint. "I'ma chop his ass up, and there's two ways he can go. He can fall on his face or he can fall on his back, or he can wave the white flag. Well, that's 3 ways now," Mayweather would comment, making it clear that Cotto will be number 43 on his undefeated record. Check out what else Floyd Mayweather had to say in episode 1 of 24/7 Mayweather/Cotto.
If Floyd "Money" Mayweather is not on 24/7, don't even bother watching, because when I'm on 24/7, it's "You Must Watch" TV.
What would the show 24/7 be without me.
Of course I'm thankful that the judge didn't stop me from making a living, you know. Boxing is what I do. Boxing is what I love. June 1st is just any ordinary day. I'm not worried about it. I don't even think about it. It is what it is. I take the good with the good, I take the bad with the bad. Can't nothing stop me.
I could care less about what the weight is. I'm in there to fuck you up. I could care less because I know he in there to do damage to me. You know, I know that Miguel Cotto is a very, very quiet guy, but he's in there to fuck me up, so my thing is I gotta go out there and do damage. I was built for this, you know? I like the smell of the gloves.
Right now, in this training camp, we boxing non-stop, and when we get in the ring, it's called the Dog House, so if you look at the ring, it's always surrounded by a bunch of people because it's the Dog House. When you go to a dog fight and you watch Pit Bulls fight...I don't want to get in trouble with the PETA people, the animal rights people, but shit, I don't give a fuck because I wear mink coats. I'ma wear Chinchilla and I'ma rock mink coats. The same people gonna tell you, "You can't wear animal fur and shit," them the same people that's eating chickens and eating cows and eating steak, so fuck what they talking about.
I seen Ortiz's eyes was slowly closing, I seen blood, so I said, "Fuck it, let's go for the kill," and that's what we did.
It's like this, you violate and we'll demonstrate. He violated, so I had to demonstrate.
You can put 10 Larry Merchants in the ring with Floyd Mayweather, and they all could be 21, and they all gonna come up short.
I could care less if he is going to be around for my next fight. I'm not doing an interview [with Merchant] no way. I'm going right to the back and I'ma get that check and I'ma hang out with my boy 50 [Cent] and we gonna do what we do.
May 5th is just another day for me, you know. I don't live that far from the Strip. The only thing I'ma do is, you know, hop in one of my toys, drive 10 miles down the street, go down there and give the fans what they want to see.
I'ma chop his ass up, and there's two ways he can go. He can fall on his face or he can fall on his back, or he can wave the white flag. Well, that's 3 ways now.
I'm a winner. I'm a winner. May 5th, I will win. I was born to win and I will die a winner. You better believe that!
