Mayweather Apologizes For Racism: But I'll Beat Pacquiao

By Mark Vester

A few days after making his controversial comments on a video streaming network, Floyd Mayweather Jr. returned to Ustream late Friday night to clear the air with his fans and the boxing public. When Mayweather appeared on Ustream several days ago, some of his comments resulted in a mountain of negative press from the media and harsh comments from the boxing fans who watched the profane video.

Some of the comments Mayweather made from several days ago, like "cook him up with some barbecued dog" and "cook that yellow chump" and "I'll make that mother f**ker make me a sushi roll and cook me some rice" and "this mother f**cker's name is Emmanuel. He got a fake name, taking power pellets" - sent a tidalwave of negative air in Mayweather's direction.

When Mayweather returned on the service late Friday night, he apologized to everyone for the comments. He made few excuses and said he "didn't really mean" any of it.

"I do want to apologize for what happened the other night. I want to apologize to everybody because everybody thought that it was a racist comment that I said. I don't have a racist bone in my body. I have nothing but love for everybody. Some of my guys are Muslim, some of my guys are Jews. Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, whites, ...it doesn't matter. I got nothing but love in my heart. All i want to say is, if anybody was affected from what I said the other day, I apologize as a man. I was just having fun. I didn't really mean it," Mayweather said.

Prior to the apology, Mayweather discussed a possible fight with Pacquiao. He wants Pacquiao confident and ready to win, but also made it clear that a Pacquiao win won't happen. 

"Manny Pacquiao, he truly believes that he's one of the best, but I know that I am the best, that's the difference," Mayweather said.

"I want him to believe that he's going to win. All 41 opponents that I faced thought that they were going to win, but that didn't happen."

During the broadcast, Mayweather sent his condolences to his former promoter Bob Arum for the recent loss of his oldest son, John, who lost his life as a result of a hiking accident in Seattle, Washington. 

"God bless to Bob Arum and his whole family, because I heard that Bob Arum's son had a bad accident. Love to the whole Arum family," Mayweather said.

Are we really considering calling Manny Pacquia the best in boxing? You really think he's better than Mayweather? You really think PBF is ducking Pacquiao? Consider this......Since Pacquiao has moved up how many boxers have he faced versus brawlers? Let's…
