The Floyd Mayweather Junior USstream Video - Floyd Goes Way Too Far; A Sign Pacquiao Has Gotten Under His Skin?
by James Slater: Pretty soon, pretty much every boxing fan - casual and hardcore alike - will know all about the latest “stunt” pulled by self-proclaimed greatest fighter in boxing history Floyd “Money” Mayweather. All over the internet, are reports, opinions and general outbursts of indignation at the ten-minute video the 33-year-old megastar has released via Usstream (the video is also by now up on You Tube).

In the short video, which looks to have been shot, in poor quality (both picture and audio), in one or more of the many rooms in “Money’s” spacious Las Vegas home, the self-proclaimed pound-for-pound king attacks real pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao with verbal taunts and threats that simply have to be heard to be believed.
Not only does Mayweather - who must have given up forever with any attempts at being a nice guy - use abusive language and profanity, he also uses racist filth and homophobic filth to get his message across. Also boasting about how much more money he makes per-fight than Pac-Man, Mayweather comes across as a complete jerk.. Sure, he’s come across as a buffoon before, but never in such grandiose, all consuming fashion! But for the fact that Floyd doesn’t drink (at least not to the point of getting drunk and intoxicated), I’d swear this was the case in the video - a video that, despite it’s offensive qualities, is sure to be seen by many thousands of people.
Some examples of what Mayweather says on camera whilst being surrounded and encouraged by a few of his “team” now follow:
“As soon as I come off vacation [fight again], we going to cook that little yellow chump. You ain’t gotta worry about me fighting no midget! Y’all better jump on my bandwagon right now, ‘cos once I kick the midget’s ass I’ll let you all jump on my dick. ‘Cos once I kick the midget’s ass, I’m gonna make him cook me a sushi roll and some rice. You know how it is, we gonna cook that mutherfuker with some cats and dogs.”
Floyd goes on to refer to Manny as “Poochi” and he questions Pac-Man’s fear of needles, asking why he gets “a new tattoo after each fight” if he’s scared of needles. Mayweather states he will fight Pacquiao, and that it will be a “cakewalk” for him when he does so.
All in all, a stunning, not to mention crass attack by the man who says he wants to “clean up the sport.” This piece of garbage, that is now the world’s to see, will do nothing but add further dirt to the image of the sport of boxing. There’s no doubt, Mayweather has gone way over the line, and could he even find himself in some kind of trouble for being so racist?
One thing the video proves to me, is the fact that Mayweather is afraid of Pac-Man, at least a little, and that he has let the calm assurance of the Filipino legend get firmly under his skin. There is no question Floyd has at the very least made the fight with Pacquiao an excruciatingly hard one to make - while others still say he is flat out ducking Pac-Man. Why, if he sees nothing but a cakewalk? One that would net him somewhere in the region of $30 to $40 million dollars at that!
I think Floyd Mayweather, due to whatever urge it was that made him make this video, has lost himself a whole bunch of fans. Sure, a degree of trash-talking is okay, but the greats never went as far as Floyd just has. And more than anything else, Mayweather wants to be known as great. He isn’t, at least he isn’t outside the ring!
