Floyd Mayweather Deletes Post Asking Fans To Stop Stealing Pay Per View
Former undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather, is unhappy with the people who have been stealing Pay-Per-View streams instead of purchasing them.
In a social media post, the 50-0 retired star explained that the PPV theft is equivalent to docking money from the pockets of those fighters who headline major events.
Boxers enter the fight with an agreed share of the PPV earnings. Mayweather urged boxing viewers to watch the fights legally and support those who are putting their lives on the line inside the ring.
His post came moments before Gervonta Davis took on and defeated Isaac Cruz. The PPV matchup was on the paid platform with Showtime.
However, he later removed the post without an explanation.
Mayweather has backed Davis for a long time, and he is willing to help him make history.
Davis has done him proud so far, strolling past every opponent he has shared the ring with.
Mayweather has called out Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, who he beat when he was still boxing. The former champ claimed that Canelo is intentionally avoiding Davis.
Something had gotten Mayweather’s goat as he mentioned steroids in the same breath as Canelo and complained about how the Mexican gets held in such high regard.
“It’s f—ed up that they don’t get ‘Tank’ as one of the top guys pound-for-pound,” Mayweather continued. “They rate Canelo up there, and Canelo is one of the top guys up there. But he’s not the only guy.”
