Floyd Mayweather Jr. Against UFC

“This is not a racial statement, but there’s no white fighters in boxing that are dominating. So they had to go and do something else and start something new."

-Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Mayweather made those remarks when comparing boxing and U.F.C. Mayweather is fighting Juan Manuel Marquez on September 19, which is the same night that UFC 103 takes place. U.F.C. 100 did over 1.5 million buys and so I'm sure that "Money" Mayweather is desperate to draw attention to his pay-per-view match. Still, it's pretty classless, but not surprising in the world of pro sports these days.
