I'd say they're all pretty smart, but DLH and Leonard were the more natural speakers. Floyd's stuttering and struggling for words does not denote lack of intelligence IMO, so much as lack of general confidence expressing himself or perhaps an overeagerness to express himself that his tongue can't keep up with.

his speech is fine. floyd always spoke kinda slow and often takes a second to think before he speaks, but when he gets excited he speeds it up which leads to some slight studdering.

punches dont have that affect on ppl anyways. it makes you slur not studder.

It's really because when it comes to Floyd, he has to watch every word he says. He has to choose his words carefully. Because the media will catch the slightest mistake and blow it all out of proportion. I think that's why Floyd talks a little slow. That interview on NBC sports, you can see some parts where Floyd gets a little excited and hype, but he slows down a little to catch himself.

It's because Floyd has to force himself not to say something stupid or offensive.

His speech is not going bad he was just trying to sound smart but it doesn't work well for him. He's a more in your face ignorant speaking person rather then, let's sit down and have a normal conversation type of person. Besides he couldn't get out of Pocket with this reporter.

Floyd face was priceless when he was like, " Carmelo is my boy we both went to Syracuse" He didn't know what to say. All in all he did a decent job.

Pacquaio replied that he wanted to stay up for at least 30 more minutes. Alex Ariza replied with "Thats what Mike Tyson said the night before he got knocked out against Buster Douglas". After hearing this statement Pacquiao yelled at Ariza to go " **** himself" and get out of his hotel room. He then threw his phone at the wall, flipped over a table and busted it into pieces and then ran out to the hallway of the Hotel to tell his bodyguards that he would KILL them himself if they let Ariza back in his room.

Just my opinion.

I've never seen any reports that Mayweather may have been using drugs, except suggestions that his long absences from the ring are because he takes PEDS and then cycles them out of his system, keeping the long term benefits.

But this is only speculation.
