Floyd Mayweather became well known for his ‘Money’ nickname and mantra over the years but tonight when all was said and done it was a bit different.
Speaking after his boxer Gervonta Davis who he promotes beat Isaac Cruz — Mayweather passionately addressed the media.
While also speaking to other young fighters he is promoting.
The former pound for pound number one said:
“The name of the game is boxing. Not slugging. When the fight game is over and you want to hang it up like me. You still want to have your faculties. You still want to be able to have your brain. Fook the money! Your health is more important than anything. The name of the game is to hit and not get hit.”
Tonight was only the second time Davis got taken the distance.
The win improved the 27-year-old’s professional boxing record to 26-0-24 KO.
