Floyd Mayweather gets booed by NBA fans

TBE Floyd Mayweather may have made a lot of money after winning the “fight of the century” against Manny Pacquiao, but he has obviously annoyed a lot of people as he has received a lot of “boos” lately. The undefeated boxing champion surely made an impact; with some reports calling him as arguably the country’s biggest sports villain. The response Mayweather is receiving are attributed to the boxer’s uber-crass, money-obsessed persona and a defensive fighting style, as reported by Washington Post. As if to add fuel to fire, Mayweather’s image gets more controversial as stories of him beating his former wife, allegedly, while his kids were watching, are still running stories in different media sites.


In a recent event for Game Five of the Western Conference semifinals between the Golden State Warriors and the Memphis Grizzlies at Oracle Arena, Mayweather’s presence was caught on camera. The moment that his face was shown on the video screen, the crowd howled in echoing “boos.” The undefeated boxer reportedly spent $36,000 for four court side seats; one for him and the remaining for his security team. Online users immediately shared their experience with Mayweather through Twitter. Twitter user A. Killion said, “Good job Oracle: Floyd Mayweather shown on the big screen and booed more loudly than the Grizzlies.” “Floyd Mayweather laughs, then stands up clapping, as the oracle crowd boos when his face is shown on the big screen,” M. Thompson said. J.



Branch said, “Floyd Mayweather Jr., at Oracle, was just shown on the video board, He was roundly booed, a greeting now called ‘the Mayweather.’” Meanwhile, others didn’t like what the crowd did with the undefeated champion boxer, and goes to his aid. “I’m a Mayweather fan. How can you not respect greatness?” said Draymon Green, as tweeted by television sport commentator and a former NASCAR driver, Jimmy Spencer. Green is a professional basketball player who currently plays for the Golden State Warriors.
