Floyd Mayweather isn’t the most liked man in the world at the best of times. Even when he beat Manny Pacquiao in the so-called ‘greatest fight of the century’, fans were left unhappy with the pound-for-pound king.
Maybe it’s because of his evasive tactics? Or maybe – and more likely – it’s because of videos like the one he posted on his Instagram page yesterday morning.
The 38-year-old American, who announced his retirement following his last victory over Andre Berto to take his record to an unblemished 49-0, posted a ridiculous video of himself at “Just a normal house party at 5.16am for Mr.”
However, all the video showed was the boxing champion ‘making it rain’, in other words, he was throwing money over at least 10 women wearing nothing but their underwear. To make matters worse, the women were all twerking towards the camera, and Mayweather rounded things off by adding the caption “My life is the Sh*t”.
You stay classy, Floyd.
Mayweather’s Instagram page can be seen filled with stacks of dollar bills, expensive cars and jewellery that the richest sportsman in the world has collected over his career.
Mayweather has also been vocal in the past week, offering his thoughts on a rematch with Manny Pacquiao and also hitting out at fellow boxer Adrien Broner after he made disrespectful comments about Caitlyn Jenner.
“It's all bulls*t,” Mayweather told FightHype.com about reports of a second bout with the Filipino. “What they're doing is this, once again, piggybacking off my name to sell pay-per-view numbers when he do go out there and fight again.”
On Broner, Mayweather said: “I mean, you are there taking shots at Bruce Jenner. When it’s all said and done, let Bruce Jenner live his life the way he wanna [sic] live his life. Bruce Jenner don’t even know who Adrien Broner is, but Adrien Broner do know who Bruce Jenner is.”
