IN case anyone cares, Floyd Mayweather wants to make it clear he only attended Saturday’s fight between Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman in Las Vegas because he was “supervising” the Filipino, his so-called “employee”.
That’s the claim made by finicky Floyd today in a long-winded social media post following some tiresome back-and-forth with Pacquiao ahead of what many suspect will be an equally tiresome rematch in 2020.
Never one to relinquish control, let alone seem desperate, Mayweather is playing hard to get at this stage, complaining about being synonymous with Pacquiao, yet doing all he can to keep his name attached to him and to the rematch. For where there’s money, there’s always a point. And where there’s money, you’ll invariably find ‘Money’ Mayweather.
