Floyd Mayweather on fighters around today and how they are trying to do something that is impossible. In his view.
Floyd Mayweather has been doing the media rounds quite a bit this Easter. As always, he has been in candid and colorful form in doing so.
He’s taken exception to how some boxers of today (in his opinion) think they can instantly start generating the money that he did.
