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.
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
