Mayweather on Fatherhood and Mike Tyson Calls him Scared

Screen Shot 2015-05-01 at 11.13.51 AM

There is a lot of information swirling around about the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight this Saturday, but there are a few stories that stood out to me as a dad.

First, Mayweather stating that all the money from the fight will go to his four children.  Mayweather is expected to collect $200 million and says he will give $50 million to each child. I think that is great, if he does that, as his legacy with his children and establishing wealth for future generations are very important when all is said and done.

Second thing I noticed in an interview when asked about his children, Mayweather said he wishes he could see all his children, but because of his abusive history with one of the mothers of his children he can’t.  He was verbally and visibly saddened by it, then responds with, “But you know how women are.”  Although, I didn’t like what he said I expected no less because, you know how men that beat women are.

Tyson-Mayweather

Speaking of which … the last and most entertaining piece for me was Mike Tyson.  Tyson was cornered in a casino and asked his prediction on the fight and his perception of Floyd Mayweather, Jr.  His remarks were classic. Tyson calls Mayweather, “a scared little man,” and it has nothing to do with boxing.

“He can’t take his kids to school by himself and he is talking about he is great?”  – Mike Tyson

Walter Scott Shooting Leaves 4 Children Father-less

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 12.02.03 PM

Walter Scott was a father of four with a fiancee. Walter Scott has a family who loved him. Walter Scott’s life mattered.

Walter Scott was murdered by a white police officer, Michael Slager, in North Charleston, South Carolina.

In the wake of the shooting, four more children will grow up without their father.

“He has four children; he doesn’t have some type of big violent past or arrest record,” said Chris Stewart, a lawyer for Mr. Scott’s family. “He had a job; he was engaged. He had back child support and didn’t want to go to jail for back child support.”

Words to Father By

These are the words of Pastor Keith Battle and have really inspired me to rethink the way I father. It is a must that as dads, we figure out what our kid need from us. Every child is wired differently. We can’t make our children be what we want or mold them into the likeness of what we could never accomplish. Find out your child’s needs and love language and operate to meet and grow them from their needs.
