Mayweather says he gets more love overseas than in America
Floyd Mayweather Jr., the self-described “The Best Ever,” said in video posted Sunday on Mike Tyson’s YouTube account that he doesn’t get much love in the US compared to other countries.
“At the end of the day, they still look at me as a (expletive),” Mayweather said.
Mayweather has created a persona based on cash and lavish expenses that’s befitting of a wrestling heel, the term used to describe bad guys in professional wrestling.
Even during his much ballyhooed fight against Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas last week, Mayweather was showered with jeers from his, presumably, hometown.
He added in the YouTube video that he’s still undefeated in his professional career.
“You cannot knock my talent,” Mayweather said. “When we get in the ring, I don’t care what you all write, what you say. It’s just me and him, one on one. Just because I’ve had no difficulties, I made mine look easy and everybody else’s was hard, they want to say, ‘Oh, Floyd never fought nobody.'” DPL
