The knives are out, right before the big one becomes reality, and Floyd Mayweather gets it on with Manny Pacquiao.
Are tempers short because people are so jazzed, not getting enough sleep? Not sure…but Wednesday it was Mike Tyson telling UCN Live he thinks Mayweather is “delusional” and “scared,” and now it’s the daughter of the Greatest, Laila Ali, weighing in.
She went on CBS to talk about the fight, and said that she sees her father as being a helluva man, and Floyd doesn’t measure up. But, she noted, that’s his right to believe that he’s TBE.
“I see a little boy even though he’s a grown man, and I see a broken person and I know when you have money and power and all those yes people around you sometimes you don’t have that person to pull you aside and really give it to you straight,” said She Be Stingin, now a reporter for PBC on NBC.
She said she doesn’t hate him, but dislikes how he treats people and she termed beating women “cowardly,” and finds that repulsive.
NOTE: People should watch the video and see the tone she uses. She is speaking from a place of love, I think, and she is quite measured, and composed, and not there to hammer Floyd and get buzz. She is clear, she hates how he mistreats some people, and says his history of assaulting women is repugnant, but overall, Laila makes clear she’d like to help him, with some valuable advice on how to handle fortune and fame.
