Is Mayweather a closet racist? Belittling Pacquiao


The collapse of the fight [between Mayweather and Pacquiao] led the Filipino ring icon to take on Clottey instead, a showdown that lacks the excitement and drama of a Pacquiao-Mayweather bout, but attracted a big crowd of 50,994 nonetheless at the $1.2 billion stadium owned by billionaire and Dallas Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones.

Mayweather frowned upon the figures, reminding people that he still holds the record number of the top pay-per-view fight of all-time.

"Let’s not forget who generated a revenue of $2.5 million dollars in one fight alone," asked Mayweather, whose 2007 bout with Oscar De La Hoya is still considered the biggest boxing money maker ever as far as pay-per-view sales are concerned.

"The only reason why he's popular is because he's an ethnic minority and from the Philippines, so it's something special. If he was from Africa he would be just another boxer."

It is high time that Mayweather does not run away from fighting Pacquiao. He is too proud nay sounds arrogant. But that will simply make the fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather so much more exciting!
