i think it's quite obvious that floyd is planning an exit strategy. this is the first time he's made it so explicit, and in simple terms at least that i am aware of.
he wants to get into promotion. it looks like he wants to be involved with showtime. we will see how long it lasts, or if he can grow the business through means other than simply throwing money at it.
he's got a huge investor, certainly. himself. if he can keep his act together, and spend money intelligently instead of throwing it away like a child, he can make some real noise. he's got the connections and the capital. all he needs is talent. then he's got to be smart and do things the right way in promoting the talent. if he does that, he can be a player. he's got the drive, certainly. he just needs to focus it on promoting.
i tend to doubt that floyd mayweather will be successful in his business endeavors. i'd love to see him prove me wrong, but i don't think he's responsible enough.
