Floyd Mayweather has always had an on and off relationship with the media.
Sometimes the Grand Rapids native will open up and share another side of himself, while other times he is quick to fire backlash towards those who have doubted his career.
And in the wake of his 12-round unanimous decision victory over Manny Pacquiao this past weekend, Mayweather (48-0, 26 KO’s) made sure to mention his win to those who doubted him.
For years, Mayweather was ridiculed by those in the public and media world for their view that he was avoiding a fight with Pacquiao (56-6-2, 38 KO’s), who he handled fairly comfortably outside of some rocky moments in the fourth round of their match.
With this chapter of his career now behind him, Mayweather made sure to fire a salvo what speaking at the post-fight press conference.
“If I’m not mistaken, everyone was saying I was scared and ‘Floyd would lose’. Tomorrow when you right your story, I want all you guys who wrote negative stories about me for years, I want to wake up early in the morning and I want to see your stories tomorrow.”
