    Default Mayweather is an idiot

    Floyd Mayweather Jr says people don't like him because of his race. I wonder if he will ever realize people don't like him because he is a cocky jerk.

    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Mayweather is smart enough to make outrageous claims nearing his fight date, so that people will start talking about him, spreading the message about how much they dislike him, and encourage others unknowingly, to order his fight in hopes of seeing him beaten, and in the process, putting money in his pocket.

    Pretty dumb , huh?

    Hook line and sinker. He would be happy to know that this thread was created and that it's at the top of the thread list.

    You just said it, he's playing the crowd. He picks his fights very well. He hypes them up as the heal to the max. He makes people hate him and talk about him for that reason. All of this = $$$ as people order his fights just to see him get knocked out. Take this fight for example, taking on a great Mexican fighter, days after Mexican Independence Day. He will get the Latino market to buy in. Those guys love to see their country men fight, especially near the holiday and especially against a champion like Mayweather. Next, he's doing the put the UFC down, thing. He knows the UFC is hot and he's now being addressed and talked about by UFC brass and fans alike. No matter what's being said, his name continues to be out there. Some people will buy it just to see him get knocked out. I buy everything, so I don't count, but if I was just a casual fan, I'd be rounding up my friends who want to see him get knocked out and we'd be having a boxing/UFC party. It's just smart marketing and he does it extremely well. Yes he is very cocky and full of himself. He's smart enough to use those traits in creating the villain that so many hate.

    I would love to see him get kncoked out, but I won't get the PPV. He is not worth my time or money and I have stopped watching boxing, except the highlights on Sportscenter

    I don't believe htat gives him enough credit. He calls press conferences and does his trolling there. The internet troll part of it is the press reporting the story and then the fans arguing over who hates him more. He himself does't get on the boards and troll as we all know.

    It will be interesting to see how well he draws against the UFC.
