The Mayweather’s trash talking…

“My brother couldn’t train a dog,” -Roger Mayweather on Ricky Hatton’s devastating loss

“Marquez ain’t nothing but a tune-up” -Floyd Mayweather Sr. on his son’s opponent this July 18

“I am not wasting any time with a tune-up fight,” said Mayweather. “I’m going straight to the top. Marquez called me out immediately after his victory over Juan Diaz in February and now he gets his wish. What he is going to find out is that you should be very careful what you wish for.” – Floyd Mayweather Jr. on their press conference announcing their head to head battle against Marquez…

So what’s up about the Mayweather’s? Aside from their trash talking and supreme confidence their making noises around the boxing circle and sometimes it’s starting to be annoying in some ways. It’s either you love them or hate them they are just doing what
They should be doing… being a villain in an army of good men.
Boxing needs them and they create a different marketing strategy not everyone could understand. Superman needs a Lex Luthor, Spider man needs a Dr. Doom and Batman needs the Joker they provide the other side of the coin and the more people hate them the more people watch them fall. They generate the Pay per view buys in those trashy mouths…
The arrogance and bad mouthing can really get into your skin and I’m not a fan of trash talkers myself. They don’t get any sympathy from people and more so the respect they clamor…
How can Hatton be compared to a dog when he was racking 47 wins with two defeats against two pound per pound best?
How can a no.2 pound per pound fighter be a tune up fight? Marquez who still fights in bundles can clearly give Jr. Problems in some ways…
Jr. was quick to call a fighter who was fighting all his life below the 135lb limit… What happened to Cotto, Margarito and Mosley who were calling his name after their respective victories?
The Mayweather’s can talk all they want. They can humiliate any fighter who gets on their way… they can claim they are the best in the business but they should remember the real talking is done in the ring… Ask Manny Pacquiao…
