Floyd Mayweather Jr. is nicknamed “Money” for a good reason — he has a lot of it and he likes to floss it. He’s shared pictures of his sports betting exploits via Twitter, he’s shared pictures of his new fly cars, and he’s shown off his $50,000 iPod. Oh, and does Floyd love to brag about it.
“My check looks like your Social Security number,” Mayweather told MLive.com.
Floyd is preparing for his fight with Miguel Cotto on May 5 and HBO’s 24/7 show begins in a few weeks to help publicize the bout. Mayweather’s point was that he’s great at hyping his fights. He even talked about having his father, with whom he fought prior to his fight against Victor Ortiz, stop by the gym to create controversy for the show to generate buzz.
Mayweather may brag about his ability to generate money as the villain, but let’s be real here — it’s not an act. He may be a great boxer, but he’s not a nice guy.
