Mayweather and Mosley “brawl” like 2 girls
Floyd says Manny and Shane are drug users
During the usual “fluff and stuff” of the Washington DC press conference, there was a moment of real substance. It was a moment where Mayweather Jr felt the pressure of his critics. But like his in-ring skills, Floyd danced and countered with a few shots of his own. Let’s examine further:
During Mayweather’s usual verbal “gum bumping” some boos rang out in a response to what he was saying. These opposing voices prompted Mayweather to respond with the following:
“Before you judge me, look in the mirror and judge yourself” FMJ, Doghouseboxing.com
Did Floyd make these comments because his feelings were hurt? Or did he makes these comments because he was frustrated by the boos of opposition? Regardless of why, there’s a lesson that can actually be learned from what Floyd said.
First thing to address is the fact that these comments are another example of Floyd’s hypocrisy. Floyd needs to follow his own words. If Floyd were to truly judge himself before others then he wouldn’t say half the garbage he spews about other fighters. Most recently, we can see Floyd talking about Mosley’s divorce and accusing Pacquiao of being a cheater and a liar. All Floyd needs to do is reflect on his own family’s broken home and their drug history and that would normally humble the average person. Unfortunately, not for Floyd Jr.
Aaron Davidson Sacramento, CA “Does Floyd Jr get judged unfairly?”
No I don’t think so. Floyd has brought this on himself. It’s his actions and comments that make people feel the way they do toward him. There have been too many years of Floyd saying things that are absurdly selfish and extremely destructive toward others.
The best thing about what Floyd said is that we can all still take a look in the mirror and correct our own issues. Nobody is perfect, but then again the majority of us doesn’t get on National TV and start bashing other people. I seem to recall how the “good book” says remove the plank from your own eye before you tell another to remove the speck in theirs.
Annie Lewis Sacramento, CA “Isn’t the media a bunch of judgmental people?”
I can’t speak for others. But, Let me make this perfectly clear before I receive hundreds of emails and comments. I do not write articles to place myself on a higher level than anyone including Floyd Jr which is what I consider to be a good measurement of “judging”. I hold myself even more accountable than I do with anyone else including Floyd. Like I said before, someone’s gotta balance out the absurd amount of nonsense that comes out the mouths of the Mayweathers. There’s a very thin line between having an opinion and being judgmental. The media tends to walk that line every day.
