Floyd Mayweather during last week’s Wilder vs Fury heavyweight title fight told the media that he believed Fury won and that he had Fury up on the scorecards by quite a bit at the mid way part of the fight.
This hasn’t exactly gone down too well with WBC champion Wilder who today has suggested that Mayweather is too selfish and doesn’t take advantage of his power to help other fighters.
Speaking on Sports Illustrated today with Chris Mannix — Wilder responded to Mayweather by saying:
“Certain things I don’t understand though especially when you’re dealing with him. Over time you see with him that he don’t want to see no one bigger than him, make it past him. You even see that with his own fighters. He has tremendous fighters in his stable but how many guys that he puts out there that are superstars? Even in press conferences he’s promoting himself, mentioning himself. I don’t think he can do nothing without mentioning himself.”
He went on to say:
“It’s not about yourself (Floyd) all the time. You have a lot of fighters that’s coming up that’s great themselves that should be promoted and advertised — not always just about you, you, you.”
Floyd Mayweather is currently retired from professional boxing at this time but will have an exhibition bout over 3 rounds on New Year’s Eve in Japan.
Mayweather also owns a boxing promotional company in Las Vegas named after himself ‘Mayweather Promotions’.
