Floyd Mayweather Responds To “Boring” Label, TMT Going To MMA?
"Boring" has been a term long-used to describe Floyd Mayweather's fights. Oscar De La Hoya recently wrote an open letter, celebrating Floyd's exit from the sport, also calling him a boring fighter.
These comments don't sit well with Mayweather, who responded directly to the accusation in an interview with Fight Hype this week.
"They always say Mayweather is a boring fighter," he said. "I sit back and think, 'If I'm such a boring fighter, if all I do is run, if I'm such a chicken, then why every time I make any move, it goes viral?' Everything I do goes viral. I don't care what network it is. It can be a guy at flyweight to a guy that's a heavyweight, my name is always being brought up. I believe my name is brought up for a reason. To the people that keep saying, 'Aw, the fight is boring! The fight was boring.' Listen, man, I'm sitting in my house counting this money, you know what I'm saying? I'm sitting in my house counting this money, chilling."
Later in the interview, Mayweather hinted at why he's been doing so much press lately, as well as his kind words for Ronda Rousey, in wake of her loss to Holly Holm.
"Mayweather Promotions, we are the past, the present, and the future of boxing and MMA," he said. "We want to treat everybody fair, and we don't want to f*ck up with nobody. I'm here to let the mixed martial artists and the fighters know, f*ck what you hear about me. I'm a good person. I'm not on drugs, I'm not on alcohol, and I'm not a liar. I'm only human. I can contradict myself, I'm not perfect, but I strive to be a perfectionist every day."
