Floyd Mayweather is the greatest fighter we’ve seen in the last few decades-about 5 decades to be exact. When we talk about greatness in the context of boxing, it’s easy to call upon Floyd’s 50-0 record, but what makes someone “great” in this sport goes far beyond the stats. Mayweather’s flamboyant demeanor, his ability to captivate, his dedication to his craft-these factors make the athlete stand out among his competitors. And while these traits are admirable, there’s something about Mayweather that overshadows his accomplishments.
I have a love/hate relationship with Floyd Mayweather. I love his athletic ability, his sh*t talking and his dedication to his craft. But on the other hand, I hate him because he comes off as a frivolous, arrogant, showboating, douchebag.
