Floyd Mayweather’s got something to say.
After lighting into Conor McGregor after his TKO loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 on January 23rd, Mayweather has more targets, namely, his next “opponent,” Logan Paul, in a now postponed planned exhibition boxing match.
But “Money” doesn’t stop there.
Jake Paul, brother to Logan and novelty viral slayer of Nate Robinson in their now-legendary boxing match, also caught the fade along with an oldie but goodie Mayweather target, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
This year I will focus on several exhibitions. I will have an exhibition in Tokyo, Japan again. Of course, the one with Logan Paul and I; and if Jake Paul can get past his next opponent Ben Askren, I will have an exhibition with him as well. I also heard that 50 cent would fight me but claims I’m too small. If he wants to lace up at the end of the year, we can do an exhibition then. I don’t care about weight class with any of these guys. The Paul brothers will make great money with the events, but with 50 cent it has to be “Winner Takes All”.
Apparently, along with showcasing his phenomenal all-black dream car collection, Mayweather needed the world to know who’s next on the hit list.
While announcing his targets, he also took the time to read Jake Paul for what Mayweather views as cultural appropriation of Blackness.
Jake Paul is talking about he don’t do exhibitions, them two bullshit boxing matches he had were exhibitions. They were not against real professional boxers. And I don’t even play when it comes to education because millions of Blacks got lynched just for reading. Let me see, you went to get a Black boxing trainer, try to dress like your Black, wear jewelry like Black people, try to dance like Black people, but you don’t want to be BLACK. All you do is Jack Black swag from us. You go from groupie fan to a fake professional fighter, this world is crazy.”
This is the same energy Mayweather had for McGregor post his loss to Poirier.
Mayweather accused McGregor of jacking his image. However, in Mayweather’s view, “The Notorious” was treated as a hero instead of a villain due to skin color.
The world knows Con Artist McLoser can steal everything from me and be loved but I’m hated. That just let’s you know racism still exist. Just know, that bum will never be me or be on my level.”
With a controversial legacy as the most successful boxer-businessman meets flamboyant heel, Mayweather chooses to start 2021 revealing his real thoughts on racial polarization, Blackness exploited for athletic gimmickry, and generally set it off for potential novelty paydays.
