Comment Floyd Mayweather Jr. But when will the fight be broadcast and where can you watch?
His profuse trash-talking outside the ring includes calling Mayweather a boy, which could anger Mayweather before the fight, portending the possibility of an animosity-laced bloodbath during the fight — or so promoters would have us believe. Perhaps Mayweather is not so savvy after all.
Being a black American celebrity who owes the government money is like boxing with your hands held at your waist and your chin jutting out — a stiff hook that will knock your finances flat is on the way. Floyd Mayweather is not on the list. I root for black celebrities to take full advantages of their hard work and talents.
Our highly-paid stars should be able to go beyond having a good time until the money runs out. Furthermore, no matter how generous celebrities of all races are, their largesse cannot take the place of good government that works to better 21st-century America.
And it is their money, to save or squander. Still, Mayweather and other rich black celebrities could use their money and influence to help America become a better place, much as Oprah has done for decades.
Born into a Michigan family of boxers and turmoil, Mayweather has taken his future in his hands and boxed his way to a ring career.
