Floyd can be a bit sensitive to criticisms.
Some of the criticisms are warranted, other times it just from uneducated people who think they know Boxing, but truly have no idea what they are talking about.
I would put radio host Rude Jude in the latter category, he makes some nonsensical comments that caused Floyd to lose his cool and it lead to this.
Jude was pushing buttons and Mayweather overreacted. He won’t get much sympathy from the general public for pulling the race card. But this is Floyd Mayweather he thrives off being the villain.
