Floyd Mayweather on Writing

“I’m a gorilla, I’m a dog. I’m a dog, I’m a gorilla. I talk the most shit.”

“I’d blow him out the water like my fists was torpedoes.”

“I’m not in this sport to see how hard I can get hit or to see how many big punches I can take. I am in this game to fight as long as I can. I am trying to dish a lot of punishment.”

“You have to realize that most of these guys get in there and fight on heart. I fight with smarts. There is no fighter that is smarter than me. Most of these fighters are ABC, 1-2-3. I am like.. 4-5-6 levels above them, that’s why I’m able to beat them.”

“I’m running my mouth a lot and I’m looking for a guy to shut me up. If you don’t shut me up I’m going to keep running my mouth.”

“To be honest with you, I normally beat guys with my C game and I don’t have to pull my A or B game out”

“There can’t be two good guys; I chose to be the bad guy — fuck it.”

“I see everything: I box, box, box. They try and get close and I tie ‘em up, lean on them. I take ‘em to deep waters and I drown ‘em. It’s just my experience I’m not bragging or boasting, it’s just my experience….”

“I will say that I’m just appreciative of everything I’ve got but as far as boxing goes, if I wasn’t trash-talking or I wasn’t flashy or flamboyant I wouldn’t be the biggest guy in the sport of boxing.”

“Most people that got an opinion about boxing… you’ve got to realize that most of the commentators on HBO knows nothing about boxing. The only one that knows something about boxing is Lennox Lewis. The rest of the commentators on HBO knows nothing about boxing.”

“I don’t care about nothing. I don’t care about shutting anybody up. I don’t care about shutting anybody up. I’m happy with myself. I’m happy with my career and I’m happy with my family. My daughter is getting an award today. She’s like the number one kid at her school.”

“I’m a harsh critic of myself, so no matter how I go, I always say to myself I could have done better.”

“I don’t know. I don’t even rate myself. Like I said before, I don’t even watch boxing. All I do is go out there and just do my job. I go do my job.”
