By Superstar Billy Graham
The Superstar recently wrote an article concerning Floyd Mayweather pathetic behavior lately, “Manny Pacquiao is making Floyd Mayweather look pathetic without doing or saying anything” (Read it Here).
The Superstar must admit there is some concern on Floyd’s mental health, the way he is ranting and raving about the lack of acceptance from his fellow Americans. Crying over and over on the lack of support, similar to a spoiled 11 year old who is crying for attention.
During the interview with the 3 radio hosts, the 3 hosts tried to change the subject towards the Chicago Bulls NBA basketball team but Floyd who is so consumed with envy over Manny’s acceptance here in the United States quickly changed the subject back towards Manny Pacquiao again suggesting he is a media creation.
If anyone listens to that interview closely, you can hear Floyd banging his head against the wall demanding for acceptance. He repeats over and over. Making reference that Manny Pacquiao should not get the support from Americans because he is a foreigner. Does that mean according to Floyd, we Americans should not support a world wide hero like Nelson Mandela because he is not an American? Or any foreign soldiers who demonstrated great heroism when they fought along with Americans side by side during WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Desert Storm, etc…. we should not support them because they aren’t Americans?
Americans support those who demonstrate great courage, unselfishness, and gratitude. Manny Pacquiao is not a war hero or the President of a country, but he demonstrated the 3 qualities The Superstar had mentioned. Manny possesses qualities that exemplifies not simply American values but great human values. A soft spoken champion in and out of the ring. Unlike Floyd Mayweather, who is the quintessential polar opposite of Manny Pacquiao. He is not soft spoken or low key. Instead he is extremely brash, foul mouthed, spoiled, ego maniacal, self absorbed, and a person who craves for constant attention. Floyd is a massive attention whore. Observing his facebook and twitter pics, Floyd shows his winning gambling tickets and the amount he won. Posting pictures of stacks and stacks of money he has in his house or in his bank. Showing off his shopping spree and the things he buys. And posting pictures of all the expensive jewlery he owns. Why does Floyd need to show off his wealth so much? Floyd some how believes people will accept him because of his wealth and success. Also Floyd is compelled to remind everyone how wealthy he is, how much money he makes and constantly telling everyone he is undefeated in boxing.
The Superstar believes Floyd has severe issues with confidence or believing in himself. The Superstar believes the more outlandish Floyd becomes the more doubt he has in himself. The Superstar honestly believes Floyd has REAL confidence issues. Maybe some of it was due to the lack of positive attention he got from his father Floyd Sr. Maybe now it is manifesting itself in his adulthood. Even though Floyd talks very confident, it is a cover up of deep insecure issues. Why would Floyd be so concerned of Manny Pacquiao’s accomplishments and acceptance? Why? It is obvious, Floyd has deep insecurities and lacks positive confidence in his own character.
People with great confidence don’t advertise or remind it to the world. They go on with their business and continue to excel on what they do. They don’t need people to feed their ego with constant shower of compliments. Often great people are shy when showered with compliments, almost embarrassed with the attention. Floyd is not one to shy away from attention. Imagine when Manny Pacquiao is shown on CBS during Final Four college basketball, it will absolutely drive Floyd over the edge. Fight Camp 360 is a CBS and Showtime series that will showcase Manny Pacquiao throughout the nation, reaching over 110 million viewers. It will certainly make Manny a nationwide superstar, considering he is a NON AMERICAN. Manny Pacquiao is already a global icon and phenomenon. Something Floyd has never achieved. This is the reason why Floyd is so upset and jealous of Manny. He has not achieved the same status as Manny. It is not just Americans accepting and supporting Manny but the whole world. And it is driving Floyd over the edge.
Manny Pacquiao is in deep training for his fight against Shane Mosley on May 7th. Still doing his responsibilities as a Congressman of his province, and trying to build the first hospital in Sarangani. While Floyd is busy making huge bets in the Casinos. That’s one of the many differences between the two. Floyd knows exactly what Manny has done and he knows he can not do or duplicate what Manny has done. This is why Floyd is acting out. Maybe Floyd fans should have a heart to heart talk with Floyd Mayweather and urge him to seek some professional help. Seriously, Floyd has deep insecurities that heav been bottling up for years and if he doesn’t get the help it will get worse and it may lead him to do something crazy like hurting someone close to him or attacking a stranger ie…a security guard. The Superstar remembers when Floyd was yelling at the security guard of his gated community “don’t you know who I am?” We know who Floyd Mayweather is but does Floyd Mayweather really know who Floyd Mayweather is? Floyd can not live the thought he is in Manny Pacquiao’s shadow. And the truth is, deep deep inside he can’t stand it.
