Floyd Mayweather had a great interview with Yahoo! Sports’ Katie Couric and one of the quotes that really stood out to us is his feeling on his past history of domestic violence.
“I’m black. I’m rich. And I’m outspoken. Those are three strikes right there,” he says, going on to tell Couric, “So, you know, when someone says, ‘I got pushed or hit, I’m a fighter. So I may not really hit a person.’ But guess what? I got to fight the case because I’m already guilty. They don’t know if I really did it or not. But since I’m a fighter, they’re gonna say, ‘You know what? He did it.’”
Couric goes on to ask if Mayweather felt unfairly accused. “Did I kick, stomp and beat someone? No, that didn’t happen. I look in your face and say, “No, that didn’t happen.” Did I restrain a woman that was on drugs? Yes, I did. So if they say that’s domestic violence, then, you know what? I’m guilty. I’m guilty of restraining someone.”
It’s interesting to hear Floyd open up about a case that he’s served time for and has since tried leaving in his past. It seems as though he remains true to his stance of innocence and it’s up to the public to decide if they believe him.
