I wanted to comment on an incident that happened earlier today. I was at the press conference for Mayweather/Mosley at NOKIA Live in Los Angeles, Thursday March, 4, 2010.
There was two Tecate ring girls standing in the front of the dais while Oscar De La Hoya was giving his speech. The Tecate girl on the left of Oscar fainted, when Oscar saw this, he urged people to get help, everyone else showed similar concern, including Leonard Ellerbe who runs Mayweather Promotions. Ellerbe was about to jump off the stage to help the female up.
The disgusting gesture came from Floyd Mayweather Jr. himself, he showed no concern for the females well being and laughed. The man loves money so much and his remarks he made reveal how much of a disgusting individual this man is. He jokingly made fun of the girl who passed out and said she fainted from “Seeing how much Money he is making or his Bank Account” I don’t remember exactly what he said, but me being a female, I wanted to run up there and choke him.
It turned out it was nothing serious, the girl was alright, but still the comments he made at that very moment show the type of individual he really is.
After hearing Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer predict Mayweather vs. Mosley to break the pay-per-view record and do 3 million buys, I had to shrug and think to myself, how can a classless, shallow human being like Floyd Mayweather Jr. who is a boring fighter be so successful at pay-per-view?
To think the media is giving Mayweather Jr. more attention than a positive, caring individual in Manny Pacquiao sickens me. Sure, Mayweather signed autographs for some fans, but he only does it in front of the media to protect his image and cast him in a good light.
I just can’t see how people like a guy like Mayweather Jr. I was willing to give this man the benefit of the doubt and thought his villain act was all a facade, but the comments he made when that female fainted were uncalled for.
Mosley’s trainer, Nazim Richardson had the best speech, he wanted to see how many of Floyd’s fans will still be there for him after he loses on May 1st. Once Floyd loses he will no longer be the cash cow or whatever he self anointed himself, because people only pay to see him lose anyway. His fans are fake just like him, they are the type of people who only like him because he is undefeated and on top, but the moment he falls they will be out of sight. Real fans stand by their fighter through thick and thin.
I really hope Shane Mosley knocks this guy out and does the boxing world a favor. Guy’s like Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley are the faces of boxing not Mayweather.
