Mayweather: Shut up and box

5 Comments

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been in the news - not for boxing, of course, which he seems intent on avoiding. The welterweight, who has been ducking a fight with Filipino powerhouse Manny Pacquiao for years, instead took to Twitter to make racially charged comments about Jeremy Lin, the former Harvard basketball player who’s become an unlikely sensation for the New York Knicks.

“Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian,’’ Mayweather tweeted. “Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise.’’

If Mayweather’s comments sound oddly familiar, it’s because they uncannily echo Rush Limbaugh’s remarks in 2003 that Donovan McNabb was only getting attention because the media wanted to see a successful black quarterback - an inane comment that cost Limbaugh his job as an ESPN football analyst.

MANNY PACQUIAO SAYS, MAYWEATHER DOESN’T WANT THE FIGHT!!!!
“He offered me $40 million, and no pay-per-view [money],” Pacquiao said, breaking into a laugh. “No pay-per-view. Can you believe that? Would you do that? Come on. What would he say if I offered him $50 million – not $40 million, $50 million – and said ‘No pay-per-view. Take this money and be happy, but no pay-per-view.’ He wouldn’t do it, either.”

Also, Freddy Roach says “We Will keep fighting untill MAYWEATHER COMES TO THE TABLE!!!!… even if we have to fight till we’re 50 years old”
