Mayweather Goes On Baseless Rant, Says Love For Rousey Is 'Racist'


When will Floyd Mayweather Jr. learn to let his boxing do the talking?

In a recent interview, Mayweather went in on UFC fighters Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor, saying their celebrity is a clear indication "racism still exists."

First off, racism absolutely still exists. And excerpts from Mayweather's interview prove it -- just not in the way he intended.

In an interview with FIGHTHYPE, Floyd stated,

He continued,

People praise McGregor for walking the walk after talking the talk, Floyd. No one would praise him for talking sh*t and then getting his ass handed to him.

And you've never seen him fight, really? Have some humility.

As far as Rousey, we all know Mayweather has a personal beef with her. So, he takes a subtle jab by saying she has to "put it on," presumably in order to be marketable.

Is Laila Ali a great fighter? Absolutely. Unfortunately, the popularity of boxing is nowhere near the popularity of UFC at the moment, which, if you ask Floyd, is probably Rousey's and McGregor's fault.

And, bruh, people think you're "cocky and arrogant" because you've been accused numerous times of committing domestic violence and have no apparent regard for money.

It's the racism, though, for sure!
