Floyd Mayweather Responds To Taunts During Hall Of Fame Speech
Floyd Mayweather (50-0) issued a quick response to a boxing fan after he was seen crying during his International Boxing Hall of Fame induction speech this weekend.
Mayweather has always been known as being calm and collective throughout his career. However, the boxing legend did let his guard down for a little while on June 11 after achieving a long-term dream of getting inducted, showing that even the most confident athletes can show their emotional side at times.
After the speech, one fan taunted him by saying “Cry on my shoulder Floyd,”. The boxing legend replied by saying “No, I am crying in my bank account”.
The induction means that Mayweather is officially a part of Boxing history, where he belongs after retiring with a 50-0 unbeaten record. Finishing as a five-weight world champion and arguably the best boxer of this era.
After accepting all the praise and honor, Mayweather said that he has done many good things in his professional career, but this moment was the highlight. He credited his family, particularly his parents, for this achievement.
“I want to say special thanks to the International Boxing Hall of Fame for awarding me with this,” Mayweather said in his speech.
