Mayweather vs Mosley
Sacramento Fight Sports Examiner | Rick Rockwell
Floyd Jr, confident in his showmanship, recently spoke about HBO’s upcoming 24/7 which will detail the lead-up to the fight on May 1st. Mayweather spoke about how he’s an entertainer and that fans won’t want to miss it. But, it was Floyd’s comments about Marquez that caught my attention.
“I'm an entertainer, and the upcoming 24/7 will be the best one yet. The cameras have been rolling since the fight was announced, and you know you're going to see something exciting when you follow me. Fans will not want to miss it. Marquez tried drinking his own urine last time around, and people do crazy things when they know they have to face the best fighter in the world. Hopefully Mosley got the memo that drinking pee doesn't work. Let's see what he tries to do. Nothing, absolutely nothing works when you have to face me." Floyd Mayweather Jr, 411Mania
Marquez drinking his own urine was absolutely disgusting. But, Floyd’s comments about Mosley getting the memo, was hilarious. I think everyone should read that memo that drinking your own urine doesn’t work.
I don’t see Mosley doing anything outrageous like Marquez. Shane doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy who would go ‘overboard’ on this HBO 24/7. In fact, Mayweather will have to carry the show because I don’t see Shane being that entertaining.
I agree with Floyd that he is an entertainer. He’s all about putting on a show. Whether it’s in a boxing ring, a wrestling ring, or on the dance floor Floyd is an entertainer. He’s the perfect boxer for any HBO show
Jesse Daniels Sacramento, CA “Hey Rick, do you think the Mosley vs. Mayweather HBO 24/7 will be entertaining?”
I do think this will be entertaining because Mayweather cares about putting on a good show. Unfortunately, that doesn’t guarantee the fight will be entertaining. I’m curious to see what comes out of Floyd’s mouth during these episodes. I’m also curious to see how many times Floyd talks about Pacquiao.
Andy Litzel Sacramento, CA “How come you don’t mention anything about Floyd’s charity work?”
Andy, there’s typically not a lot about his charity work. But I did catch some details and comments about Floyd’s 1st annual Foundation Benefit which raised funds for various community organizations. Here’s what Floyd had to say about it:
"The event was extremely successful and the funds raised will go directly to improving our community. Although I am very focused on my May 1 fight, giving back is always a nice break, whether it is feeding the homeless or working with youth in Las Vegas is something that is very important to me. It's something I'll continue to do over the next month and beyond." Mayweather Jr, 411Mania'
