Floyd "The Shame" Mayweather

Floyd “The Shame” Mayweather


San Francisco, CA- Having had the pleasure and talent to write for others to read in 1972, I’ve witnessed some despicable acts. That being said, as a member of the media and former Policeman in this City by The Bay, I’ve seen evil people who for no reason other than he or she had the ability, inflict emotional, physical or financial harm on those undeserving.


Floyd Mayweather has pulled some cheap shots in his time, and no not the Victor Ortiz two-punch salvo after Ortiz dropped his hands that followed his trying to spear Floyd with a head butt. His Christmas card to Manny Pacquiao was degrading and a demonstration of his lack of class. But today I want to talk about the river of truculence that runs through Floyd Mayweather’s veins. The manner in which he as addressed Manny Pacquiao of late, be it on Twitter or with the media, was some of the ugliest bile I have seen in a long time.


Mayweather has called Manny names, made fun of his tax woes, essentially laying out there the notion that unless Manny Pacquiao crawls through broken glass, kiss Floyd’s ass, and then possibly have Mayweather spit in his Manny’s face and walk away. His continually demeaning of the fiery Filipino phenom is as mean, truculent and evil like Muhammad Ali mercilessly pounding on Ernie Terrell, a Chicago challenger who kept calling Ali by his birth name, Cassius Clay.


Much like Ali who kept bellowing, “What’s my name?” to Terrell as he pummeled the over matched challenger. If I remember the fight correctly, Ernie didn’t call him Ali, even though he was taking a beating as Ali was mean and vicious far beyond his usual ornery self, it was Ali at his ugliest. This was not the man of peace he would become later in life. On this evening he was infuriated, feeling Terrell was disrespecting his name and his religion. In 1993, almost 30 years after the fact, Ali told me that would he did was wrong.


Floyd Mayweather is either an Oscar award winning actress, and he really has plans to fight Manny Pacquiao in September, or he is the biggest creep to have put on the boxing gloves since imprisoned jr. middle (154 lb.) Tony Ayala. He seems almost intent on making Manny commit to flagrante delicto for mere consideration. Being much like Leonardo da vinci says, “I dream painting and then I paint my dreams.” That same theory applies to my writing as these are the thoughts I woke up with this morning.


Floyd knows Manny has financial (tax) issues, much like Floyd did ten years ago. But had people urinated on Floyd when he also had tax woes, like he is pissing on Manny Pacquiao today, there might be no mega-million dollar Showtime contract. There could be two huge fights here, a rematch if Pacquiao wins and or the first fight was entertaining and competitive. The fight would do more for the sport of boxing than anything I or anybody else could conjure up, be it in or out of the ring.


In closing, if this is not a ruse, Floyd is no more than a mean spirited prick who let the world down!

Tammi Terrell died of Brain Cancer. A lot of people think it was brought on by beatings put on her by David Ruffin, the original Temptations lead singer.

Boycott Floyd Mayweather Until he Fights Manny Pacquiao?

No answers available.


  1. what happened to your sudden turn around these days pedro? the last time you were bashing pacquiao pretty hard and giving all mayweather the props. have u discovered some things that made u bash floyd and praise manny this time?

    jared on January 28th, 2014 at 4:17 AM
  2. No J, I just saw through the bull spit. Still would make FM the betting favorite. If September happens, provided Manny wins and Floyd too. As some point it’ll be a fight and although he may even win, like KP said on Ring Talk, “Floyd doesn’t want to fight anybody, he wants to box guys that are slower.”

    Pedro Fernandez on January 28th, 2014 at 4:34 AM
  3. Probably, you are not getting a lot of hits and wants to prop it up by telling what have been known to the whole world ever since, that pacman is the good guy here and gayweather is the bad guy who does not want to fight. good on you anyway its not too late to make amends.

    eddie king on January 28th, 2014 at 4:41 AM
  4. Mayducker talks like a snake typical of a devil lunatic …I appeal foyd cott

  5. Your observation on Floyd is shared by everyone worldwide except for his moronic minions. Nobody in the history of all sports has an athlete so publicly despised, insulted, humiliated, bad-mouthed, invented libelous lies against another “without any provocation”. Yet the most cowardest thing is Floyd has wasted most of his bum career hiding and inventing the most idiotic reasons to avoid getting in the ring with Pacquiao. Mayweather’s persona is so strange/abnormal that u can only conclude that deep inside he is suffering from a large dose of insecurity, mental torture, ENVY, and 24/7 nightmares over Pacquiao. The only way Floyd can solve his problems is to CONFRONT and FIGHT Pacquiao but his cowardice prevents him from doing so. Lastly, the GREAT ALI might have always taunted his opponents but he always made sure he intended to fight them UNCONDITIONALLY and he DID. Mayweather is just a total disgrace to all athletes.

    andrew on January 28th, 2014 at 4:49 AM
  6. Floyd is just being Floyd, much like Floyd Sr.
    I mean to say that he probably doesn’t know the negativity he is projecting but that’s because of his education (or lack of it). He has discovered the power of money and what it can do for him. Before he gets involved with a woman, he makes them sign an agreement that whatever expensive jewelry or car he buys them should be returned if their parting is not so favorable. Just listen to Sr. and Jr. talk, it’s like a perpetual dummy that only knows the words “motherf__ker” and “shit”. If they only use their hard-earned money for their education, they probably would fit well in any society. They’re just dysfunctional, that’s all.

  7. Floyd Mayweather Jr is a TOUCHER and NOT a BOXER. I like to watch BOXING and I become very sleepy when watching TOUCHING. To prove, look at the opponent of a Boxer after a match wherein the Boxer dominated almost all of the rounds in a fight. Then look at Floyd’s opponents after their bout in the last few years wherein Floyd dominated all of the rounds. TOUCHERS don’t hurt their opponents. They just annoy them (and me for watching it).

    George on January 28th, 2014 at 5:39 AM
  8. Yeah, fmj is an evil, coward, narcissistic prick who
    doesn’t care about anybody but himself. He only wants to fight Manny in twitter not in the ring.

    LILO on January 28th, 2014 at 5:51 AM
  9. Thanks for this piece Pedro, hope you are well. What are your thoughts that Manny and Floyd fight their last fights against each other and ride off into the sunset with a huge bank.

    Keith Terceira on January 28th, 2014 at 7:00 AM
  10. Glad you have finally seen the light Pedro re Mayweather, his choice of opponents since Castillo and his antics whilst trying to portray himself publicly as a man of the people.

    Many have posted ‘anti Floyd’ messages on your site, myself included, and you have aggressively defended him and your ‘anti-Pac’ stance.

    For me, it was never a question of whether Floyd would beat Manny, he certainly has the skills to – What I have said all along is that Floyd is terrified of Manny. Floyd has tried to appear to push for the fight over the years but then ensured there were too many hoops and obstacles in Manny’s path to make the fight.

    Floyd has also dodged quality fighters at their peak in their prime weight classes over the years. He waits until these top guys have fought and beaten the crap out of each other before he invites them to the dance (Cotto) – or he will pick on the ‘slow of foot’ hype jobs that suit his game (Canello) – or he will flat out ignore them and hope they go away (Paul Williams).

    His post Castillo career is a classic “Emperors New Clothes” job and too many of you have been taken in.

    Floyd has been a superb business man and is to be commended for choosing the lowest risk for the highest reward – but as a fan, I feel I have been conned/cheated and I am embarrassed at how history is likely to view him alongside legends who dared to test themselves, like Robinson, Leonard, Ali to name a few, when in truth he’s more like Marciano, beating up on has-beens and never-where’s (Ouch, lol)

    In closing, good to have you on board Pedro

    Speedz2002 on January 28th, 2014 at 7:31 AM
  11. Your feelings hurt man? And I’m sure there are a lot meaner guys than Floyd. Maybe a certain politician who has his political rivals attacked?

    Brandon on January 28th, 2014 at 7:33 AM
  12. Good stuff Pedro! The media should keep pressuring the 2 to fight. The BWAA should do something to make this fight happen. Manny has already stated that he is willing to give some concessions to Floyd which is rightfully so.

    Nick on January 28th, 2014 at 7:45 AM
  13. Floyd has been playing with his fans since he changed his name to MONEY Mayweather..All he wanted is money from the fans like when he joined the WWE fight years ago in an exhibition fight..He thought although WWE is not real fans still spend money to watch their idols with their fake “skills” inside the ring..

    pikkon on January 28th, 2014 at 8:01 AM
  14. Too late Pedro. Flomoes like you built a Diva, a monster that you now seek to tame. He has made money out of you fools, he doesn’t care about you fools. You fools together with Floyd destroyed the sport of boxing.

    Alan on January 28th, 2014 at 9:45 AM
  15. glad you saw through floyd’s BS. He can fool some people all the time, all the people some of the time but not all the people all the time.

    buddyo on January 28th, 2014 at 9:56 AM
  16. Great point Mr. Fernandez. When will the main stream American media stop protecting this great American fraud? Too bad Showtime got suckered with that 6 fight $200M deal that they have no choice but protect their investment. We can’t write Pacquiao off just yet because he still has some gas left in his tank. Pacquiao at 75% is still better than most welterweights at 100%, thus Floyd’s reluctance to fight him. If only more writers start telling it like it is just like yourself, the pressure will be on both Showtime and Fraud to make the fight happen.

    ELMER MANARANG on January 28th, 2014 at 10:00 AM
  17. Hey Pedro, Did you write this? It seems out of the ordinary and also a few misspellings aside with the bad text overlapping.

    Luis Donado on January 28th, 2014 at 11:24 AM
  18. If you can’t see through Floyd’s BS than you should just shoot yourself!!and FOK Floyd and his Sh8t

    Manuel largo on January 28th, 2014 at 11:36 AM
  19. Pedro, don’t forget also that Floyd also suckerpunched Arturo Gatti during a break in their fight.

    nathan on January 28th, 2014 at 11:43 AM
  20. Hey Pedro… When Floyd was talking about fight Alexander, you screamed that he should fight Guerrero. Floyd fought Guerrero. Then you wanted him to fight Canelo. He fought Canelo. He does what you requested and now you’re bashing him??? Your sudden turn from Mayweather to Pacquiao doesn’t make much sense.

    R.A.W. on January 28th, 2014 at 11:50 AM
  21. Thanks Shane. Late night last night, thanks for your input.

    Pedro Fernandez on January 28th, 2014 at 1:51 PM
  22. Hey pedro, i think you are being a hater. I mean I agree with you, but it is a form of hate, but like a poooleeece officaaa…, its the job of the true journalist to tell the objective truth, and not just enjoy free lunches and press passes, which is why I visit this boxing site as my last job of following and researching the sport, for some say trash, and some say truth. I look at maxboxing and boxingtalk for entertainemnt, and cheerleading(i.e what the masses think), then I see your site last to get the nitty-gritty. My opinion is hateful, because it is in opposition to one Money Mayweather, but I am going to play devils advocate, with you Pete, in the sense that Im going to say Money May is not to blame here. I truly believe it is merly a sign of the times. He is appealing to a certain demograph, which is his fans, which are of the hip-hop genre, and a carefully plotted strategy to antagonize “White America”, for instance him getting in the face of the proto-typcical whitey Larry Merchant. While not going into that, because at the end of that argument is racisim. We hate Mayweather because he is young, black, rich, and outspoken. Read all the Richard Sherman diatribe. MY other opinion is both sherman, and may, put the bait out there(RACE). Some say its nonsense and just spoiled athlete, which I feel is the number one cause, but it does have certain cross-cultural meanings in America, because sports is THE NEW religion in the good ol USA, and blacks are the face of it, sooo we must adress all aspects

    dondinero on January 28th, 2014 at 2:01 PM
  23. But i dont want to follow the racial undertones of our hate of Mayweather. I just want to say its not his fault, it is a sign of the times, just a generation lost, because, meaning and values, have been replaced by gross materialism, what social scientist decades ago labled as generation X, of which I am, and now our children which is Y are apart of. So without meaning and values, Mayweather is the blind leading the blind. And the second thing is The superstar athletes, the Tyson’s, De La Hoya’s, Shermans, and now Mayweathers, are superstartes from birth, like Lebron James, and Koby Bryant. One of my favorite quotes of all times from any athlete’s was Lebrons James, after losing too the Dallas Mavricks, He quote on quote, adressed his “haters”, with something to the fact that “At the end of the day you all can say what you want, but you all have to go back to your lives and I will wake up an still be Lebron James”(i.e translated you all are average joe losers, who will still lick my balss, because im rich and famous). Its a symptom of spoiled athlete growing up privalleged, and never having to live in the real wolrd, and you know what its not their fault(bare with me). Its all the cheerleaders, and fans faults that support their team winning, at any cost, look at Florida St’s QB, and even our own 49ers Aldon Smith, walking scott free, because they can win a championship. But the hypocricy of society is what more appaling the any Mayweather, even though I do find him gross. Because as soon as Winston or Aldon is no longer a superstar, and they F-up again, the same fans that bought their jersey’s knowing the truth, will burn them, when they can no longer provide entertain,emt. But at the end of the day history shows us the tysons, de la hoyas, and kobe’s of the world, all fall from grace. Its a fact like there are 365 days a year. Mayweather will fall, and not just 30days in jail. I follow the sport of boxing for entertaiment, but more and more I do find myself asking myself when and where do I draw the line. When do I say “okay, I can support that, but I cant support this” I mean Im not even sure I do draw the line, because I dont blame Mayweather, and I just consider him a clown, not in the sense he is foolish, but like all clowns, he is here for entertainment, and thats it. Which in my opinion, that opinion is more offensive than any moral sermonizing if you truly analyze it. If you see the truth behind such a statement.

    dondinero on January 28th, 2014 at 2:17 PM
  24. I jumped on Manny like a trampoline for not taking the tests. Now it is Floyd’s turn!

    Pedro Fernandez on January 28th, 2014 at 2:23 PM
  25. Oh one last thing, it just occured to me, floyd is known to be an avid gambler. not saying its right or wrong. thats his business. Amercians should be the lsst to judge anyone about gambling ie think superbowl, but lest we forget, one Michel L. Jordan was an avid gambler as well, and before anyone wants to kill the messenger, im just saying it is a fair assesment to draw parallels, between what FLoyd does, and what Jordan was known to do, and we must bare wittness to the eventual outcome of Jordans little ugly secret, must be seen a warning to things getting out of control, no matter who you are what what you think youare, if jordan could be touched, and tyson to an extent than anyone can, anyone! if you follow what I am saying.

    dondinero on January 28th, 2014 at 2:29 PM
  26. Wow, what an analogy. dondinero

    Pedro Fernandez on January 28th, 2014 at 4:00 PM
  27. Can’t say anything I’m just so bored, tired, pissed-up,disappointed, frustrated,hard feelings,pls. just fight gay weather…

    Fel Merino on January 28th, 2014 at 9:00 PM
  28. And where is the loudmouth Fraud Mayweather Jr now? Still concocting another lie and excuse to counter the Pacman’s challenge to him for a fight. The natural reaction of a man not scared of his challenger is to accept the challenge and give his condition for accepting the fight. If he doesn’t want to fight for charity he can say so as a precondition for accepting the fight. But he is abnormally silent now in contrast to his usual mouth-running self. Where are you Greatest Coward of All Time? Why are you hiding now? It goes to show that indeed you are a duck and a chicken and a coward of the highest order and you want to fight the Pacman with your tweets only and not with your fists.

    edL on January 28th, 2014 at 9:11 PM
  29. Pete,
    At the end of the day, you have to ask yourself “Am I going to pay for this fight”? And if you answer Yes, then whatever Floyd says or does means it’s working. Because you and I either pay to see him win or we pay to see him lose. So whether you love him or hate him doesn’t really matter to him. All Floyd wants is your $$$$. And yes, I’m still a sucker for the “big fights”. And Amir Kahn is not a big fight, so I won’t be paying for that sad imitation of a “big fight.

    Not Dundee on January 28th, 2014 at 10:44 PM
  30. Welcome back Not Dundee…Missed your input.

    Pedro Fernandez on January 28th, 2014 at 10:53 PM
  31. Mayweather said it:”If you watch me because you hate me, you are still a fan” At least he tries to sell a fight.

    Pirate on January 28th, 2014 at 10:59 PM
  32. At the end of the day it comes down to this:
    Its your money Floyd is putting in his pockets and showing all of you on twitter. So, if you are entertained by him – everything is fine. If you are not (for whatever reason) – just stop watching him and his silly entourage. Simple as that.

    I’ve stopped following him over 8 years ago. I dont read articles about him anymore (except when Pedro turns his back on Floyd. hahahaha, …) nor do I watch him, his father & uncle and their ramblings on youtube anymore. I simply ignore him because he is what he is – a big balloon of hot air and I’m not interested in balloons.

    I acknowledge that he has sold himself better than any athlete before. Credit for that. But to be a great you have to prove it. And Floyd hasnt proved his “greatness” against valid opposition. He had his chances but he has ALWAYS taken the easy road. That’s fine – but dont consider yourself or such an athlete an all-time-great. Period. I’m done.

    Sven on January 29th, 2014 at 1:19 AM
  33. HI pedro

    what a pathetic piece of writing this is. Here is why, yo call floyd the worst piece since tony ayala, since when was floyd a sexual predator like this guy? have you ever heard of ray robinsons 6 miscarriages? or ray leonards multiple beatings of juanita, while high on drink and drugs. carlos monzon throwing his girlfriend over a balcony! jake la motta, raping vicky? marvin hagler, battering his former wife bertha, ali battering his father? i can go on and on about this, but i shall stop for now.why does many pacquaio, get away with thes e assnine quotes about fighting for free, and you say nothing when the same skunt ran away from 50-50 & 40 million dollars!

    Remember, corrupt bobs 99 excuses & silly cooments about the truth?
    remenber, charles barkley saying im not your role model! no boxer or sports personality is my role model, if they are i have a problem.

    Read this book by the late boxing news corerespondent jim brady, boxig confidential.This guy was brave enough to condem arum & king to there faces, but yet you were here on this site worshipping that 2 time killer!

    robert ramsey on January 29th, 2014 at 8:29 AM
  34. to me when I consider Floyd it’s less about him not fighting Mammy than it is that he is BAD for what is left of our sport. He comes from a severely dysfunctional foul mouthed IGNORANT family. Absolutely NO class. I am an old man and which no harm to anyone but I hope I live long enough to see him broke and ignored. All of his ass kissers will be gone but I’m sure he will still be a legend in his own mind.

    Santa Cruz Jim on January 29th, 2014 at 9:38 AM
  35. I will live to see the day that Floyd is broke.
    Watch and see. A degenerate gambler with cash-money sitting in a savings account(not brokerage account) with an army of sycophants getting paid to kiss his ass and scream Hard Work.

    Phil on January 29th, 2014 at 10:10 AM
  36. I never left Pete, just enjoying all the rhetoric from everybody. Always interesting to read !!!

    Not Dundee on January 29th, 2014 at 4:27 PM
  37. I think it is actually kind of funny, because I think it’s clear Floyd is actually frightened of Manny Pacquiao.

    Nick on January 29th, 2014 at 8:27 PM
  38. It took Pedro 4 years to come to his senses . I will remember where I was, when I first read this article . (Kennedy Assassination, , 9-11, Pearl Harbor, Challenger Explosion, Pedro switches sides in Mayweather vs Pacman non fight) I love it, even the staff writers don’t know what to make of Pedros switch.

    Kurt on January 30th, 2014 at 9:23 AM
  39. Gentlemen, we all love boxing and that’s why we come here to partake in these hot debates. We all have differing opinions and expressing them should not elicit the others’ ire, but all we are is human beings, and as such, we love to hate, sometimes, and hate to love, some other times. However we should all agree on a few things, and one of them is to extend a friendly hand to someone in need, someone who’s given us thrilling moments. That someone is Kelly Pavlik (there are many others and I, WE, haven’t done much to help, but we could start today). I just read how terrible his life’s been lately, and would like to expend a bit of the energy or time (and money in this case) to help, instead of the trivial back and forth we all to often engage in.

    It is not much, but I pledge to give $25 to help him, and Pedro or KP could maybe take care of this. And this could be a start to a beautiful actions from fans to show our gratitude to fallen heroes.

    todaline on January 31st, 2014 at 1:32 PM
  40. …too often… beautiful action… to heroes fallen from grace…

    todaline on January 31st, 2014 at 2:32 PM
  41. Sorry, when i said he was a bad drunk and had video of him twice falling off of a Comedy Club stage, his manager Cameron Dunkin got Joe Maxse of the Cleveland Plain Dealer to say I was a liar and that Kelly was not receiving re-hab. Maxse, an alleged journalist never apologized or printed a retraction when Kelly started falling off more than just club stages.

    Pedro Fernandez on February 1st, 2014 at 3:30 AM
  42. But Pedro, this seems to be a problem between Cameron Dunkin/Joe Maxse and you. And I understand Dunkin was his manager but maybe we should find a way to forgive and give people a chance to “rehab” themselves.

    todaline on February 1st, 2014 at 9:31 AM
  43. Not saying that. I said this months prior after buying a videotape of it via Paypal, Kelly’s falling off a stage. I said it happened, Dunkin said the contraary and called me a liar and Maxse printed it in a major US daily paper. It’s not OK to kill the messenger!

    Pedro Fernandez on February 2nd, 2014 at 2:10 AM
  44. Pedro I understand your position. Dunkin was pusillanimous enough to run to a news paper and try to discredit you. You’ve been denouncing lies and corruption in boxing for decades now, and am pretty sure you could find an outlet other than yours to pick up the story and just ridicule the guy. What I’m trying to say is Pavlik is (probably) not guilty of Dunkin’s mischief. He’s just the latest victim of the boxing world (and Hopkins). Have a good sunday.

    todaline on February 2nd, 2014 at 7:48 AM
  45. Can’t floyd mayweather just get called an asshole for being one? The guy is a jerk at least in public anyway. Manny is a really nice guy. In public anyway. If I’ve learned one thing is nice guys get treated like chumps by bullies because they’ve got away with it for so long. Their comes a time when a quiet guy will stand tall. I really hope it’s pacman. You’ve got to question Floyd’s motivation. Kinda of like Ali’s when facing Fraser. Is there something that makes Floyd nervious? Ali turned up the rhetoric when facing a good guy that had the ability to beat him. Almost to fevorish pitch. Just like floyd. I doubt Floyd has the balls tho to ask the questions of himself that Ali did.
