Roughly two years after his infamous on-air verbal altercation with rapper R.A. The Rugged Man in an interview gone terribly wrong, undefeated welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather once again scoured the satellite radio circuit in search of his next opponent.
The dance partner this time around was DJ Rude Jude, co-host of The All Out Show on Sirius Satellite Radio Channel Shade 45.
The results weren’t nowhere near on the level of the war of words with R.A. The Rugged Man, who mostly offered an informed opinion while keeping Mayweather in check for the duration of their tirade. Nevertheless, it showed the manner in which the pound-for-pound entrant chooses to carry himself in between fghts.
Audio uploads of the interview went viral in a hurry, with Mayweather calling in at the request of rapper and close friend Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson in response to claims that the radio hosts were trashing the undefeated superstar.
Mayweather began the call with the suggestion that he wanted to clear the air. A fixture on the hip hop circuit, Mayweather insisted that he respects what others do in their chosen profession – those in the radio industry, in particular - and demands that the same respect be shown to him in return.
From there, the six-time champion in five separate weight classes sought clarification over disparaging comments made by someone on the show.
DJ Rude Jude (whose real name is Jude Anthony Angelini, of Pontiac, Michigan) jumped in, stating that he had nothing against the fighter, just that he believes he’s been ducking his pound-for-pound counterpart, Manny Pacquiao.
That’s when the fun began.
In their own words, read below for the six-minute long measuring of (male organs) that took place, in which neither did much to make himself look like anything other than an ass in the process:
(Transcribed from original transmission which can be found by clicking HERE )
Floyd Mayweather: Not once have I disrespected nobody from the radio. At the end of the day, I do what I do, you do what you do. The other day, I guess someone over there had something against me. I heard someone on there was talking (stuff) about me.
DJ Rude Jude: “Nah, I said that you was afraid to fight Pacquiao, that you’ve been ducking Pacquiao.”
FM: “So what makes you say that, because the media said that?”
RJ: “Because you over here using steroids as an excuse. I’m saying you bigger than him anyway. You should be able to whoop his ass, steroids or not.”
FM: “Can I ask you a question – have you ever heard me say that? Have you ever personally say it?
RJ: “You allude to that sh*t. You allude to it A LOT.”
FM: “What you say, I what? I allude – have you heard me say it?”
RJ: “You allude to it.”
FM: “But have you ever heard me say it?
RJ: “I can read between the lines. C’mon Floyd.”
FM: “You can read between the lines. Are you a psychic? What you do for a living?”
RJ: “You the one… I talk sh*t about you. That’s what I do for a living. You beat up people for a living.”
FM: “So you ride my d*ck for a living?”
RJ: “Yeah, I ride your d*ck for a living. Because that’s we do, we talk about you all the f*ckin’ time.”
FM: “I ain’t hard to find. I’m everywhere.
RJ: “Yo, why you so sensitive about sh*t? You can't be sensitive and be ducking fights at the same time. Either you ducking fights, or you sensitive.”
FM: “You said I’m ducking fights and facing tomato cans. All Pacquiao has done is fight my leftovers.”
RJ: “And he beats them worse than you do.”
FM: “You know what? I guarantee that you ain’t black.
RJ: “I know I ain’t black, because black people ride for you. I see the truth!”
FM: “I can tell, I can tell. I knew you wasn’t black (repeat).”
RJ: “What the f*ck? Guess wha... Why you sidebarring sh*t? What does my color have to do with it. Why you trying to get racial?”
FM: “I know what it is. I ain’t hard to fine. 50 gave me… as a matter of fact, give me your name.”
RJ: “Jude Anthony Angelini. And you Floyd Mayweather.”
FM: “Spanish, Latin, what are you? You’re a professional d*ck rider.”
RJ: “You beat up people for a living. Quit ducking people. You beat up Victor Ortiz. He’s outclassed. Juan Manuel Marquez, you didn’t even make the weight against his ass.”
RJ: “Juan Manuel Marquez. You couldn’t make weight against his ass.”
FM: “You know my whole background, huh? My weight class is 147!”
RJ: “You beat Ricky Hatton. Ricky Hatton is a f*ckin’ bum. The only reason y’all took that fight is because white people would buy that sh*t. Oscar de la Renta, or de la Hoya. F*ckin, he dresses like a woman, and you beat him when he was 50. C’mon dawg. The last cat you beat up was Carlos Baldomir.”
FM: “How much you make for a living? You working at a radio station for real? This yo’ history – I work at a radio station and I ride Floyd Mayweather’s d*ck.”
RJ: “You callin’ me up. You callin’ me up – butt hurt. Like I can help it if you mad! And I can’t help it that I’m not black.”
FM: “50 Cent told me to call you (repeats).”
RJ: “Good. Tell 50 I said what up.”
FM: “50 said call the p*ssy direct, so I called the p*ssy direct so he can get f*cked.”
RJ: “All that little p*ssy talk, that sh*t doesn’t affect me because I’m not black. That sh*t don’t affect me. Call me what the f*ck you want.”
FM: “What do you do for a living? (repeat)”
RJ: “The truth is the truth.”
FM: “The truth is I just played yo’ ass! I’m undefeated!”
RJ: “Yo, undefeated means d*ck. Muhammad Ali wasn’t undefeated and he’s 1,000 times the fighter you are.”
FM: “What do you for a living?”
RJ: “You doing it right now!”
FM: “No, what do YOU do for a living.”
RJ: “You doing it right now, Mayweather, you doing it right now. Why you so upset about sh*t? And you know what the funny thing is, I picked you win.”
FM: “I’m comfortable.”
RJ: “You sound insecure. You sound insecure and butt hurt, You sound insecure about things.”
FM: “You know I’m getting it.”
RJ: “You’re a boring offensive fighter, so you gotta talk a gang of sh*t to get people to give a f*ck about you.”
FM: “There’s only one problem here. You tuning in to watch me.”
RJ: “Your fights are boring, man. 24/7 is more interesting than your fights are, dawg, and that’s the long and the short of it.”
FM: “There’s only one follower here. You tune in to watch me.”
RJ: “I didn’t watch your last fight. I didn’t watch your last few fights ‘cause… because your fights are boring.”
FM: “You’re a professional d*ckrider. I love doing 24/7, the show that I created, that a black man created.”
RJ: “You had to do 24/7 because you’re not interesting in the ring.”
FM: “OK, OK, so you do know who I am. I don’t know who the f*ck you are.”
RJ: “I know. You don’t know who I am and I’m still getting on your nerves. Why does that… why do I bother you, man?”
FM: “After this interview, you will get famous now.”
RJ: “Mayweather, the funny thing is I don’t even got nothing against you. I don’t even understand this sh*t.”
FM: “We already know you’re racial profiling.”
RJ: “There you go. When in doubt, play the race card (repeats).”
FM: “I’m a winner in life. Like I said before, Black man always getting it the hardest. Everybody been knocking us from the beginning. We always gonna rise to the occasion. We always rise to the top.”
RJ: “Man, listen. You not Muhammad Ali, and Muhammad Ali took fights.”
FM: “You know what, this b*tch needs to get a gossip site. Get off my d*ck and get a new job, you f*ggot.”
RJ: “Alright bro. Good luck to you man. Stay ducking. Floyd Mayweather… ladies and gentlemen.”
Suffice to say, Manny Pacquiao’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” later this evening figures to be a far more lighthearted affair.
