Floyd Mayweather Says He Won’t Be ‘Brainwashed’ into Thinking Muhammad Ali Was Better Than Him

April 20, 2015


Over the weekend we wrote something about Conor McGregor saying headline-grabbing things. And here we are at the beginning of the week and still having that same feeling, this time with Floyd Mayweather.

“Money” was interviewed by ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and said he won’t be “brainwashed” to believe that Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali were better boxers than him. Smith responds in typical Smith fashion, of course, getting flabbergasted at Floyd’s assertion.

The boxer goes on to give props to Robinson and Ali for paving the way, but continues to explain that fighting in one weight class and a loss to a young Leon Spinks hurts Ali for GOAT status over Floyd.

Oy vey. To the footage!
