Re: April 8th Mayweather/Judah Fight

To the Members of the Nevada Athletic Commission:

I wish to state to all of you I realize my actions at the recent April 8th championship fight were inexcusable and deplorable. Please accept this letter as my willingness to accept full responsibility for my conduct that evening.

As the uncle of Floyd Mayweather, I watched what I thought was a deliberate low blow then a hard rabbit punch to the back of my nephew's head, for which I overreacted by entering the ring at a point which I believed the round was over. For that, please accept my sincere apologies.

I also know what I did may cause me to lose my license for a period of time in which I would not be able to work in Floyd's upcoming matches. I am prepared to accept those consequences.

I have told Floyd that I will not hire a lawyer to contest any action that may be taken by the Nevada Athletic Commission. I simply respect all that the Commission has done throughout the years to make Las Vegas the boxing leader in the world, and I will respect any decisions you choose to make.

In addition, I realize I may be fined. In that regard, I have instructed my nephew and his promoter, Mr. Bob Arum, to provide proof from our accounting firm of the amount of money I was paid as one of Floyd's trainers. That amount is $200,000, and I will personally pay any fine out of my fee.

Again, please accept my sincere apologies for my conduct in which my emotions got the best of me. I can assure you they have never done so in the past, nor will they ever do so in the future. I embarrassed myself, my nephew, our promoter, and the State of Nevada. For that, I will be forever sorry.

Sincerely yours,

Roger Mayweather

[QUOTE=2_piece_combos]He can barely form complete sentences. No way Roger wrote that piece. :D[/QUOTE] yep. That's too perfect a essay. He dint write that and I doubt the way he says things wouldnt sound near like that. Still I get it and the intention is the same.
