Floyd Mayweather is No Role Model!

Did you see the big fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao Saturday night? The cheap seats sold for $1,600 and ring-side seats were going for $100,000.  Bars and restaurants had to pay $10,000 to broadcast the fight and you and me could watch the fight at home for the small sum of $99. Millions of people around the world did watch the fight, bringing in a projected $300 million purse. I don’t begrudge Mayweather, Pacquiao or the promoters for the money they made. The public tells us what they are willing to pay and the public wanted to see this fight.

I didn’t put down my $99. As a fellow Michigander, I would love to get behind Floyd Mayweather. However, there are two main reasons that I can’t justify putting more money in his pockets.

Reason #1 – Money is more important than the competition: In a recent interview with Stephen A. Smith, Mayweather said, “I don’t care if you like me or you hate me, as long as you pay to watch me.” Mayweather says that he wants to win and his legacy is important to him, but it is more important that he gets paid. While I admire the honesty to some extent, I think it reveals a big character flaw – one that he owns with pride – giving himself the nickname “Money.”  The “me, me, me” attitude is a big turnoff. Maybe others are impressed by the cars (10 worth over $1 million), the houses, the entourage and the $250,000 set aside for strippers after the fight, but I am not. I would not want my children or my students trying to emulate him.

Reason #2 – Mayweather beats up Women: This is not an opinion, it is a well-documented fact. According to ESPN’s Outside The Lines, Deadspin.com and CNN , Mayweather has had at least seven assaults against five women that resulted in arrest or citations and several other incidences where police were called but no charges were filed.  Here are some of the highlights:

  • In 2001, he slammed the mother (Shantel Jackson) of one of his children with a car door and punched her several times in the face.
  • In 2003, he attacked two women at a night club in Las Vegas, punching one in the jaw and one in the head.
  • In 2004, Mayweather repeatedly kicked and punched the mother (Josie Harris) of three of his children in a car and then pulled her out of the car by her hair.
  • In 2010, after the two had broken up, Mayweather attacked a sleeping Harris at her own home. Mayweather told his kids to stay in their rooms and then preceded to punch her repeatedly in the back of her head, twist her arms, drag her around by her hair and threaten to kill her. Their oldest son, Koraun, escaped the house to get a security guard. Harris believes she would have been killed that night if not for the actions of her son.
  • In 2012, his ex-fiance Shantel Jackson, claims that Mayweather pointed a gun at her foot and said, “Which toe do you want to lose?”

Mayweather has been arrested, convicted and he has served time in prison. Yet, his attitude is defensive and dismissive about beating women. In essence, he says, “No pictures, just hear-say and allegations.”  Wow!  That’s all I have to say about that.

I am surprised that a media and a public so concerned about domestic violence (anyone remember this PSA last fall?)is so dismissive of Floyd Mayweather and his repeated incidences of beating women.

 

I am surprised that celebrities of all genres paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to attend this event. I am surprised that the Nevada Boxing Commission can turn such a blind eye and repeatedly grant Mayweather licenses to box when the NFL is suspending players for similar crimes.

Ultimately, we, the public, determine this person’s paycheck. If Saturday night is any indication, we are sending a loud message of approval that basically says that we’re okay with Floyd Mayweather’s views, values and behavior.  I, for one, refuse to send that message.

1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather?  Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?

2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine.  I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things.  To that you say what?

  1. Yes i did watch the fight and no it doesn’t affect the next fight i watch because i want to see him get beat up now (:

    I would say the situation is to important to forget because no man is supposed to hit a woman.

    1. 1. No, and i would not because i dont like watching fights.
      2. No because justice should be served in the right ways not the fast ways.

    2. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?…yes i would pay to watch the fight its really exiting a lil bit

      2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what? yes… but justice is still being served

    3. 1. No, I did not see the fight.
      2. The situation sounds like there was a horrifying experience. If I had the chance, I would’ve snuck up behind Mayweather, grab my gun, force him to drop his, and take him to the authorities myself.

  2. I did not watch the fight on Saturday night. Nor did I know any of these things about Mayweather and it does affect wether I would ever pay for his fights later in the future. I’m really disappointed that people would think that way if he did it once and got punished for it i would have expected him to learn from his past but which he did it several times to different women he’s not changing for the better and he obviously hasn’t learned his lesson.

  3. No, I didn’t watch the fight Saturday night. I had never seen or heard any of this about Mayweather. I have never thought someone like him will turn out to be like this. Yes, it does affect whether i would or wouldn’t want to watch a fight. Now that i think about it, I wouldn’t want to go to any of his fights unless the kiss his butt.
    I really don’t care if he paid his fine or served his time it doesn’t make up from what he did.

  4. Yes, I did watch the fight on saturday. No I didn’t know all about this about may-weather. Yes it does affect that i would pay to watch his future fights. I say that thats great that he got sentenced.

  5. Yes i watched the fight on Saturday night. No i did not know these things about Mayweather. Yes it affects me, especially if its ones of Mayweather’s fights im not going to pay and watch a guy that shouldn’t be fighting in the first place, and then afterwards all that money im paying is going to straight to him. I think everyone has their own opinions about him and everything he has done. But in my opinion i don’t think he should even be bowing anymore.

  6. Well this is shocking I never imagen the Mayweather would do that. In my opinion I think this can change the way some people will react and wether they change the way they think about supporting him.

  7. I never new all the crime Mayweather had that shocked me. In my opinion i think they should suspend his licenses. The NFL is suspending other players with the similar crimes. I really think that is ridicules.

  8. yes, I watched the fight saturday night and i honestly didn’t know he did all that to the women he cruelly beat. Yes I would because they intertaine me.

    2) I honestly do care what she does to the women but they should put him in jail but he always manages to buy the people with money because thats how much money he wins in every fight.

  9. Q1:No I did not watch the fight on Saturday because boxing is boring. I didn’t even know about this so call “ Mayweather” until recently because everyone was talking about the fight. It wouldn’t affect me beacause I don’t care about boxing and I didn’t know this about Mayweather, so that gives me even more reason to not watch future fights.
    Q2:It doesn’t matter whether the justice system already sentenced him or that he served his time and paid, because other people who do less harm or more harm have to be sentenced for a longer time, maybe even for life. It’s truly unfair that just because he has so much money he should be able to pay his sentence and be able to continue this career. I mean other athletes who do less harm than he does are not able to continue their sport yet Mayweather is able to continue. I think it’s really dumb how people don’t care or take cautious of how much Mayweather is a terrible person and that it’s not worth to spend so much money on something so dumb. But then again nobody’s perfect and if that’s what he likes to do and that’s what makes him happy, it’s his life, his problem. The only thing I think is incorrect is that he didn’t serve enough time he should be sentenced longer. Things like this are very delicate situations and should be paid more attention to.

  10. Thanks for all of these insightful comments. My goal was to make you think about this on another level and it sounds like you have. Good work!

  11. Unfortunately, I did not watch the fight, but I watched enough on everyone’s snapchat stories. So many people were watching it and were going for Manny Pacquiao. When Mayweather won, everyone was mad and calling him a cheater, they were confident that Pacquiao would win. If they knew that Mayweather beats women, they would give him more beef. I don’t think any man has the right to hit a woman, nor the other way around. Families pay to watch this fight, the kids probably go for him and look up him. If they start seeing him as a role model, they would grow up thinking it’s okay to fight, wrong! Also, the fact that he’s boxing only for the money is terrible! I don’t think he should even be allowed on the rink.

  12. I did watch the fight. I did not know anything of this. Next time, i would change my mind and think of all the bad stuff he has done and that he is not doing any good. I realize he is a selfish person and doesn’t care for anyone, and we are over here paying to watch his fights when he just wants money. He should be way punished a lot, he has been to violent and that is no good. That is not right that he controls people with money cause they dont realize how bad they are doing accepting his money. He is never going to change, he has hurt and injured too many women.

  13. Yes , I did watch the fight , no I personally didn’t know all of this about him , I thought him beating women was a false story . He should be put away for many more years since he doesn’t know how to not keep his hands off a women . He needs to have his money on hold for all the bribing he tries to do to get out of a harsh situation. When he gets arrested they can take it away , so I think he needs to get control of himself . As well as his career .

  14. I didn’t watch the fight because in my opinion, I thought it was quite stupid that it was like $90 to watch it. I think he is very disrespectful towards women. He has no right to treat them like that if they did or didn’t want to be with him. It is also very selfish of him that he would do something, as long as they would pay him. I think he only cares more about his money than his “fans”. This article gives me more evidence of why I should continue to not watch any fights that he appears. I think it is important for people to know about his actions.

  15. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?
    Although I really wanted to watch his fight, unfortunately my dad went to casino to watch it, so I was not able to watch it. I did know a little bit of his assaults against women, but I did not know he committed that many. I have never been a fan of Floyd Mayweather, so I guess it would affect me to not watch his fights.

    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    I think it is very foolish and “unmanly” of him to hit his children’s mothers and him still getting out of it and acting like everything is fine. His kids probably look up to him and that would not be a good way to inspire your kids.

  16. No i did not watch the fight, but yes I did know about his convictions and his nick name “Floyd Money Mayweather” as the alter-ego that could care less about who is who and what costs what. His attitude towards others will one day get him back for his actions but today is not the day. As he said “i don’t care if you like me or hate me, as long as you’re paying to watch me”. There for his mind set is set on money and does not care about the risks within his actions to get their.

  17. No I did not watch the fight. Now that i know all theses things about Mayweather I will never watch any of his fights. If a man were to hit any women it doesn’t make him a man it makes him a coward.

  18. I did not watch the fight between Mayweather and Pacquiao. I also did not know these things about Mayweather. I think the fact that he is only boxing for money is wrong. He should do it because boxing is his passion. Mayweather seems like a greedy person and people shouldn’t pay to see someone who only cares to drain people of money. Even worse, he has beaten women on more than one occasion.

  19. Mayweather’s attitude needs to be cleaned and improved. All the fame and money has gotten into his head. I think paying $100 or $90 on the fight isn’t worth it. Watching his fight wouldn’t really affect in anyway. I was never a really big fan of Mayweather. Mayweather served his time but didn’t do him any good. He is still the same person that went into jail.

  20. I had watched the fight, although I did not know about the allegations made about Mayweather. I watched the fight for Pacquiao, not for Mayweather, so I probably would watch another one.

    I do not think that the justice system has sentenced him properly. We all know that Mayweather has tons of money, and I’m sure that the fine barely made a dent in his financial account. Losing money won’t affect the rich. Perhaps if they made Mayweather do manual labor or something that he had to actually work for, then he would understand that what he did was not just.

  21. I did not watch the fight and I do not care to watch the fight because Mayweather is only boxing for money, not because he likes doing it

  22. I have watched the fight and in my opinion it looked like pacquiao won the fight becuase he got more hits than mayweather. Mayweather fighting just for money is wrong that just shows how spoiled he is. He is cocky and who likes that in a person?.

  23. Yes I watched the game Saturday night.Yes I did know all about Mayweather that’s why I wanted Manny pacquiao. No it does not affect me watching future fights becauses I want to see Mayweather lose.What the fighter does affects his or hers personaltiy so be carefully.

  24. Yes I watched the game Saturday night.Yes I did know all about Mayweather that’s why I wanted Manny pacquiao. No it does not affect me watching future fights becauses I want to see Mayweather lose.What the fighter does affects his or hers personaltiy so be carefully.

  25. Mayweather isn’t a good role modle if he does this stuff to wonmen . That’s is all thinks and talks about is money and he thinks about his legacy was too much.

  26. I think that mayweather is not all a leader to his kids or any kids because he show a lot of aggression to those who are around him. Mayweather beat his mother and also point a gun at his ex-fiance to me that’s brutal to the him because he doesn’t show to the media or his fans what kind leader his is.

  27. I like Mayweather in the ring but outside of it i dont alls he care about is money and he dont care i u like him or hate him and also his’s hands on multipal women

  28. I’m a big fan of Floyd Mayweather inside of the ring he is incredible. Sometimes it appears to me that he only cares about money and fame. But I do have to say he takes care of his kids pretty well. So it’s shocking to know that he would do such a thing to the mother.

  29. right now,mayweather vs pacquiao is what the world wants. ateonhr pacman bout with marquez is nonsense. The pacman is in his peak and promoters + commissioning bodies also think its not agood idea. Marquez will go on retirement after ateonhr fight with pacquiao. His fight with mayweather is not credible enough to prove he can square again with pacquiao. I believe marquez will not pass on the welterweights. I also believe that mayweather should go to the supermiddleweights to avoid shame losing his unfamous 40-0 to smaller man on the welterweights.

  30. 1- I did not know all of the allegations against him. I did watch the fight but did not have to pay for it my friend did. I knew his whole money man montra.
    2- Servng the time is a huge step and the fines I really don’t know if they should sit out of sports I mean yes what they did is awful but can making them basicly quit there job be fair to them? I really don’t know though they did what was right by giving him jail time.

  31. WELL, I UNDERSTAND WHERE MAYWEATHER IS COMING FROM, EVERYBODY MAY SAY THAT THEY WONT CARE ABOUT THE MONEY BUT IF THEY WERE MAKING THE MONEY THAT HE IS THEN THEY WOULDNT BE SAYING THAT

  32. I did not watch the fight or know about any of that stuff. I would probably still watch the fights in hope that he get beat up for the way he is and the things he has done.

    I might not think it is right but I understand why some people might think that way.

  33. 1. I did not watch the fight, I would still watch future fights to see if he gets consquences for his actions.
    2. I don’t think what he did was right but i see why other people side with him.

  34. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night?No Did you know all of this about May weather?No Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?Yes because I think it is not right to fight someone for some money and do it for a carer.

    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?I feel the same as you because it is useless.

  35. 1) No Did you know all of this about May weather?Yes because I think it is not right to fight someone for some money and do it for a carer.

    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. To that you say what?I feel the same as you because it is useless.

  36. 1) No I did not watch the Saturday night live.No I did not know all of this about May weather.Do I think that it would affect if I would pay to watch future fights, yes.I wouldn’t pay to watch some one beat somebody else up for money and for a career it’s not safe,someone could really get hurt that way.

    2)I would have to disagree with that person because you should care.People are beating up others just for money and you don’t even care,that’s not cool.The person said I just want to watch the fight, how does someone beating someone else up give you enjoyment?

  37. 1. No I did not watch the fight. No I did not know all of this about Mayweather. Yes it does affect whether or not I would pay to watch future fights because I do not want to pay money to see people beating up each other.
    2. I think people should care about the history of others and decide whether they should pay the person money or follow along with everything bad they do. I think that people should stop paying money to watch the fights.

  38. 1.No i did not watch the fight yes it will efect mayweather yes i would pay to watch some fights.

    2.i say that person has no heart for humanity.

  39. 1) No, I did not see the fight. No, I did not and I am saddened to hear that he abuses women. Yes, because
    1. I’m not a fan of wrestling/boxing.
    2.I would not pay to watch someone who is brutal to these women.
    2) I say he is a hurtful man with no heart.

  40. 1. No I didn’t watch on Friday and i didn’t know nothing about May weather. I think it wouldn’t affect me to go to any other fight but to his fight i probably wouldn’t be worth it paying all that money to watch a fight that has no respect toward women.

    2. I would say that why would you want to watch a fight of someone who has been in jail. I think it is not worth it watching a fight of someone who has no respect for someone else especially for women.

  41. 1) I did not watch the fight Saturday night and I didn’t know this about Mayweather. After learning about what he did I would certainly not pay to watch his future fights.

    2) I do not think that you could just pay your way out of hitting multiple women because it obviously doesn’t work if you put in away for a couple of months if he keeps on doing it over and over again.

  42. 1Q) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?
    1A)No I did not watch the fight, I have never heard of mayweather before. I would not watch fights in the future because it doesnt entertain me.
    2Q) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    2A) I would disagree with that person because people should care. These people should not be getting paid to beat people up. I believe people should stop paying people to fight.

  43. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?
    – No, I did not watch the fight last night, but I was informed on Mayweathers performance on hitting women, and I personally would not pay to watch any more of his fight because of his poor actions.

    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    – I say it’s your design to watch him or not but in my mind you’re siding with his poor actions.

  44. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?
    Yes I saw the fight a little bit but did not get to see the full fight and it does not affect me because i watch a different boxer than him.

    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    I just want to watch a fight and have something that entertains me so I would not be bored the whole day for hours.

  45. This does not affect on the way that i look at mayweather.
    I say that if he does the time and pays the fine then it should not matter.

  46. 1. No, I didn’t watch the fight and I would not pay for one of his fights in the future.

    2.It is probably really important and should care about others.

  47. 1. I would not want to watch a fight with him in it because I don’t want to watch a person that hits women fight.
    2. I say that if he does not have the intent to hurt a women or anyone for no reason then I suppose I could watch one of his fights if I want to.

  48. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?
    I did watch the fight on Saturday. I did not know all of this about Mayweather. It does affect if I would pay to watch his future fights because he shows no respect to women
    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    I would say if we watch his fights we are sending a loud message of approval that basically says that we’re okay with Floyd Mayweather’s views, values and behavior.

  49. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?
    I did watch the fight on Saturday. I did not know all of this about Mayweather. It does affect if I would pay to watch his future fights because he shows no respect to women
    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    I would say if we watch his fights we are sending a message of approval that basically says that we’re okay with Floyd Mayweather’s views.

  50. 1. no did not watch the fight i personally wouldn’t pay to watch a fight because i am not interested in fights

    2. i think they sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine

  51. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about May weather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?
    No I didn’t watch the fight video, and I would not pay for any fights like this in the future.

    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    I would ask them why they would want to watch a fight video, with that person that has no respect.

  52. I did not watch the fight I know Mayweather did what he did and for the he should be put in jail. I haven’t watched any of his fights and i’m not planning to.
    I think that if he should fight he should do his time first then can fight. but he is retired.

  53. 1) Did you watch the fight Saturday night? Did you know all of this about Mayweather? Does it affect whether or not you would pay to watch future fights?
    I did not watch the fight I am not a boxing fan. I did know who Mayweather was but i have never seen him fight. Also i would never pay $100, to see a fight.

    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    Yes, I think he served his time.

  54. I would still pay for his future fights because everybody makes mistakes and I’m sure he’s not proud of what he did but I would still pay for his future fights and I did see his fight vs manny on Saturday and I did not know he did all those things @gpis

  55. I did not watch his fight , but Mayweather is out of control he he some consequences because can’t no regular men do that if they do they got life in the jail.

  56. I did not watch the fight on Saturday, and I do believe that he does need to be punished for his actions. Even if he has been punished for his actions, I believe that it doesn’t suffice.

  57. I didn’t watch the fight and I am glad I didn’t. He sounds like a person with anger issues and needs help for that anger. Jail won’t help him, but a person who can teach him how to hold back his anger and let it out calmly is what will help him most.

  58. 1)I did not watch the fight but I did know some of the things about Floyd. I would probably not watch the fights because he’s a bad dude but I don’t watch them anyways.

    2)I think he shouldn’t be allowed to fight but there’s nothing you can do and people won’t listen. I think he served his time but eventually he’ll do something worse and go to jail again. It’s a cycle.

  59. 1)I did not watch the fight but I did know some of the things about Floyd. I would probably not watch the fights because he’s a bad dude but I don’t watch them anyways.

    2) Some would say that the justice system already sentenced him and he served his time and paid his fine. I just want to watch a fight and I don’t care about such things. To that you say what?
    I would say if we watch his fights we are sending a loud message of approval that basically says that we’re okay with Floyd Mayweather’s views, values and behavior.

  60. 1. No I didn’t watch the fight and no i wouldn’t pay to watch him.

    2. I say that he shouldn’t be able to fight hes a coward and beats on women that not right. And should be put in prison for life.

  61. I did not watch the fight and I wasn’t aware of him beating woman. I would never give someone my money to watch a criminal continue to fight people.
    I think its just an opinion. If people want to still continue to support him so be it, but that doesn’t mean its right.

  62. 1. No, I didn’t watch it. 2. I would need more evidence and a better background on him to make that decisions. However, if it’s true then I do think he should be suspended.

  63. 1.) no i didn’t know all of this. neither did i watch the fight
    2.) i wouldn’t honestly know what to say but i probably would’ve wanted to watch the fight.

  64. I never new all the crime Mayweather had that shocked me. In my opinion i think they should suspend his licenses. The NFL is suspending other players with the similar crimes. I really think that is ridicules.

  65. Yes, I did watch the fight on saturday. No I didn’t know all about this about may-weather. Yes it does affect that i would pay to watch his future fights. I say that thats great that he got sentenced.

  66. The situation was really dramatic because he is looked up to by children, he set a bad example. No I did not watch the fights.

  67. 1) I did not but i still like Mayweather after finding out these things, you do what you have to do to survive and make money.2)I agree with that statement.

  68. 1. I didn’t watch the fight. I knew he put money above the competition, but I didn’t know he hit women. I’m not paying to watch him fight anymore.

    2. I say that is their opinion, and I can’t force them to do anything.

  69. I agree with 95% of the information you provided,
    however, the 2001 incident was not against Shantel Jackson..The incident was between Floyd and his oldest daughter (Iyanna’s) mom.

  70. I did not watch the fight and I do not care to watch the fight because Mayweather is only boxing for money, not because he likes doing stuff

  71. 1. I did watch the fight but I did not pay, this doesn’t effect my reasoning in paying to watch his fights.
    2. If what he is accused of is true, then he has payed fines and did some time, but, this still doesn’t effect my opinion on what I choose to watch.

  72. 1. I didn’t watch the fight, because it happened years ago and I’m not that into boxing.
