There are two things Floyd Mayweather Jr. is extremely good at. The first, of course, is boxing. He is arguably the best boxer ever. The second is boasting about his accomplishments, skill, and wealth. In a recent rant on Instagram Live, Mayweather flaunted this second skill, calling himself not just the greatest boxer ever, but the greatest athlete ever, and reminding the world of just how much money he’s made.
“I better not every hear y’all say nothing about nobody else,” he said. “There’s only one motherfuckin’ GOAT, and it’s me. I better not hear anybody talking about ‘this guy’s the GOAT over here, this guy’s the GOAT over here.’ Man, at the end of the day, I’m the best athlete ever. You know what I’m saying? You heard me. Ain’t nobody done it better than me. I’ve done it in the best style, I’ve done it flashy, I’ve done it flamboyant, I’ve done it my way, I kept 100% of the revenue, and I’m own motherfuckin’ boss. Talk to me.”
Mayweather then discussed his recent win over UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, referring to MMA as a “barbarian sport.”
“I’m so tough at what I do, they had to go to a whole ‘nother barbarian sport to go get a motherfucker that would try to fuck with me. And you already know what I did with that. Lights out, party’s over, you can kiss the babies. It’s bankroll, you know, all I do is dress, flex and progress. And you already know I went from the streets to the executive suites.”
Floyd Mayweather has not fought since his battle with Conor McGregor, which he won via 10th round TKO. His next most recent fights occurred in 2015 when he defeated Andre Berto and Manny Pacquiao by decision.
What do you think of these comments from Floyd Mayweather? Do you think we’ll ever see him fight again?
