Floyd Mayweather’s worst decision made a billion’
Floyd Mayweather says the worst thing he’s ever done led to him becoming the world’s first billionaire fighter.
In a jaw-dropping interview after his professional career ended, Mayweather lambasted Bob Arum and his Top Rank promotional team.
The 44-year-old grandfather revealed his career low when asked explicitly about it.
Mayweather told Fighthype.com, “To date, the worst thing I’ve ever done in my career was sign with Top Rank. One of my family members was hungry for money and went behind my back. It’s the worst thing I’ve ever done.
“The worst thing I did was sign with Top Rank because I was destined to be big anyway. I was destined to be a superstar anyway.
He continued, “Bob Arum is a bitter b***h. “You made more money off the fighters than the fighters make. So settle for that. Go live your life and relax.
Floyd Mayweather Decision
During the 2018 rant, Floyd Mayweather digs deeper into Arum about his treatment of fighters. Terence Crawford said something similar about Hall of Fame after his last fight with Top Rank.
“You are so old. Are you almost 90 years old and still want more money?
“Look, I can’t buy anything else. What are you trying to buy at 90? You can’t buy anything else at 90. Do you want a new costume? Why do you want a new suit when you have 40 years of suits.
The statement was Mayweather’s most obvious admission that he was best served to chart his career path. Mayweather continues to make money from exhibitions.
Breaking up with Top Rank to sign with Showtime ended up costing Mayweather three-quarters of a million dollars. However, it made over a billion at the box office.
Mayweather will fight again in September on a RIZIN FF bill in Tokyo.
