Mayweather is in full promotional mode meaning the quotes are coming fast and furious. Always remember a big part of boxing is selling yourself. Floyd sells himself as the villain, so part of that, is attempting to clown the perceived good guys in boxing like Ward and Alvarez. Here are the quotes courtesy of Fight Hype. First on Andre Ward: He calls himself S.O.G. If I’m not mistaken, that stands for Son of God. Last time I checked, we’re all God’s children. When one fighter is facing another fighter, God don’t choose sides. What’s going to happen in life is going to happen. Everything is already planned out. Listen man, if you’re going to be a pastor, go to church. If you’re going to be a reverend, go to church. If you’re going to be a boxer, be a boxer. I mean, one minute, they want to say all this S.O.G. stuff, and the next minute, they wanna go put tattoos on they body. I ain’t never seen a pastor boxing. I ain’t never seen a reverend boxing. I say a prayer that my opponent lives to fight another day and I live to fight another day. You got these guys trying to hurt a man on Saturday and then going to praise the Lord on Sunday. ot knocking Andre Ward, but he can’t sell tickets nowhere. He can’t sell tickets in Las Vegas. This is the only guy I know that’s a gold medalist, but don’t nobody know he’s a gold medalist. He’s a gold medalist, but he’s making money like he don’t even got a medal. Like I said before, Andre Ward, he’s a good fighter, but who knows him? If you’re not in Oakland, you don’t even know who he is. He’s getting older and time is ticking, so I mean, when is he going to ever leave Oakland and put assess in seats somewhere else? There’s a difference when you say “Andre Ward”. The only people that know him are in the boxing world. Floyd Mayweather is a worldwide celebrity; a worldwide mogul. You know, you got fighters, sometimes, they speak on certain situations where the thing is this, like I always tell you before, when you’re a fighter getting a million dollars, a million dollar fighter like Andre Ward, if anything, you need to come to my camp so you can learn the blueprint on how to sell out arenas worldwide. I got the blueprint on how to sell out arenas worldwide. We know Adrien Broner is more known than Andre Ward. He don’t even have an amateur background. He’s got a gold medal? Let me get it and I’ll melt it down and get a medallion made. Here is what Mayweather thinks about Canelo passing up a chance to be on his undercard: I’m under contract with Showtime and CBS, so a fighter that I made famous, Canelo, how can he give me an ultimatum? When I was his age, I was champion too. Where he’s at compared to where I was at, if you pull up the record, I don’t remember everyone I fought by that time, but I fought Genaro Hernandez and Angel Manfredy when Angel Manfredy just gout finished beating Arturo Gatti. I fought solid, top competition. I’m not going to say that he can’t fight or he’s not a good fighter, but how can I let a 22-year-old kid, who just got into the sport of boxing, give me an ultimatum? And I’m the A side. My contract’s with Showtime and CBS. If I fight Canelo, I’m paying Canelo. No one is giving me an ultimatum. So once again, I’m closer to 40 now than 21. If I wanted to pick and choose opponents, should I be able to? Absolutely! I earned my stripes. You don’t just get to a power position by not fighting nobody, so if I wanted to pick and choose, so be it, but I’m not. I’m fighting my mandatory. No fighter is going to give me an ultimatum. How can a fighter that ain’t never been on pay-per-view without me give an ultimatum? They’re saying I’m hand-picking opponents, but no one is forced to watch me fight. If all these other fighters are better and they’re fighting tougher competition, well guess what; I bet our bank accounts don’t look the same. You know, tell him [Canelo] to do his own pay-per-view show if he’s such a big name. Let’s see if he’s going to do his own pay-per-view show. I bet he don’t. Man, his red-head, freckle-faced ass better just sit back and wait in line. If I feel like choosing him, I’ll choose him. If you get a lottery ticket, then you step up to the plate and you get your payday. Right now, Guerrero has his lottery ticket. May 4th is right around the corner.
