I think sometimes people just love to hate Floyd, and maybe it’s some of the stuff he does outside the ring, whatever the case might be, but from a boxing stand point, man the dudes legacy is what it is, he’s a living legend of our sport and I think people need to stop looking for a reason to take away from it. Him not fighting Manny Pacquiao is not going to have, in my opinion, any effect on his legacy. We don’t know all the details of what went on behind the scenes, we think we know, but we don’t really know.

I think people just got to understand that the guy is who he is, he’s a living legend of our sport, appreciate him while he’s here and just enjoy the ride until it’s over, and the same thing with Manny. He is a great, great fighter, I believe he is going to be a Hall of Famer, and I know he’s coming of that tough loss to Marquez, but Manny has fought everybody, he’s kind of a throw back from that standard. So Manny has got his legacy too. I don’t think we should compare, I think we should enjoy both guys for the way they did their thing and just enjoy the ride until they both ride off into the sunset and retire.
