At least he was praising his dad for his masterful coaching instead of throwing him out, calling him a bum, and saying the only other Mayweather with any boxing talent was his uncle. That was embarrassing for everyone when that happened.

Mayweather chomping his gum like that annoyed the shit outta me. Made me wanna spit in his mouth. Delta Bravo alert


Me too!

Though, I would of head butt him so hard that his teeth would of all fallen out, and he would just be using his gums to chew that gum!


Boxing sucks, so fixed and boring. Used to watch but Don King ruined the sport, now were seeing some of it in the UFC, especially with the Athletic State Commission.

Why does C.J. Ross have a job? It's not like she ever gives the correct scores...

As horrific as her scorecard was, the reveal of it was the most entertaining part of the night.

The look on Mayweather and his entourage's faces when the tied score was revealed was priceless.

I'm surprised everyone hated that fight so much. I know we're all MMA fans first, but that was a beautiful display of boxing. If you can't enjoy a Mayweather performance, you should probably just watch Mike Tyson highlights and not bother with the sweet science.

The Garcia Matthysse fight before it was a fun fight to watch.

I find Mayweather incredibly skilled, but not all that entertaining. Part of that is he's so much better than his competition, part of it is his style. As dominant as he's been in his last couple fights, he never seems to have his opponent in any trouble, despite winning almost every round.

Got some free tickets to watch the fights at the casino last night. Got the drinks comped, reserved seats in the club, etc. I only found the Garcia-Matysse (?) fight that preceded the Mayweather fight entertaining. Watching that mouthpiece fly out on such a gigantic screen was satisfying.

Alvarez-Mayweather had some moments, but If I want to pay to watch people flick jabs, I'll stick to GSP's fights. I'd rather watch B-Hop when it comes to boxing.

I just caught the fight. Never really watch boxing fights, but Mayweather is brilliant. His speed and evasiveness is a beautiful thing to watch and also I don't understand how it was boring. MMA imo is much more exciting but that fight certainly was far from a snoozer. Can't say I'd ever buy a PPV but I will most likely catch more fights

On a side note I have never been more confused than watching Floyd walkout with Bieber and Lil Wayne.
