Floyd “Money” Mayweather has some words for the younger boxers in the game right now. He has won 49 fights, 26 of them by knock out; and ZERO losses, so he might just know what he’s talking about.
Mayweather says the fighters currently in the spotlight want to get paid like him but don’t have what it takes quite yet:
“You don’t have Floyd Mayweather star power. It takes more than just being a knockout artist. You need to have that swag and an aura. There’s different things you need to have to be Floyd Mayweather.”
Mayweather has been retired for two years now and is worth around $340 million. He says all that money came as a result of his worth ethic which the younger generation doesn’t understand:
“[What] goes on with these fighters in today’s time, these fighters want Floyd Mayweather money, but they don’t want to put in the Floyd Mayweather work. For me, it really was blood, sweat and tears. I really, really busted my ass to get to where I got to.”
Do you think anyone could ever replace Mayweather when it comes to boxing? We highly doubt it, but it seems like he’s ready for the next star to pop out and show him what has been missing from the new wave of boxers.
There have been rumors floating around that Mayweather will get out of retirement to fight UFC star Conor McGregor, but nothing is official yet.
