What? Of all the things to dislike that was your biggest? I laughed my fucking ass off watching that live. You couldn't have scripted a more hilarious scene.

Things start off with drug induced Lil Wayne having a seizure whilst attempting to rap? As time went on it only got worse and soon he was free-styling gibberish. Then to Floyd's left you've got Justin Bieber holding his dick as he's surrounded by 350+ pound black men.

Not sure why walking out with 'fashion accessories' gets your knickers in a bunch.

Not that specifically, but the over the top nature of the sport and some of it's participants. Just seems really fucking stupid and feels like they're trying to detract from the actual sport itself because it probably isn't that engaging as a spectator sport. The arrogance, trash talk and gimmicky shit like Bieber and Lil Wayne just devalues the sport for me.

That's boxing in a nut shell. Tyson created such a spectacle due to the ferocious way he fought, this relentless in-your-face power puncher. Floyd doesn't have that sort of style, it's a very defensive 'stick and move' sort of affair that doesn't attract a lot of attention. So he built this 'money' persona that rubs people the wrong way, you don't buy a Mayweather fight to see him win, you want to see him lose.

HARD WORK = DEDICATION

Get the fuck outta here

Yeah watching those YouTube vids you linked earlier, I really wanted to see Canelo get up just because of how obnoxious that stupid cunt 'money' was, and how legitimately honest and hardworking Canelo seemed to be. Watching Floyd 'hold court' while he tried was unbelievable painful.
