2 Floyd Mayweather

So many people watched his fights in the hope that they would see it when he eventually lost the fact that it did not happen only left people to despise him even more.

Shows no respect for his opponents, before OR after the fight... says he's better than Ali and sugar ray leonard... cocky, arrogant, disrespectful. Only boxes for the money and only picks fights he'll know he will win. wouldn't give his fans the fight they wanted to see against pacquiao as he said pacquiao didn't deserve a 50:50 split of the money, despite the fact pacquiao had more impressive victories and world titles, more fans, and was more liked, than mayweather at the time

Almost every Filipino hates him for a reason. And that's because of being a coward in fighting Manny Pacquiao. The fact that he won is still bothering me.
