It looks to me like Mayweather has nobody that he really listens to, respects enough to listen to.
In the United States, a person is presumed innocent until proven otherwise and until he or she is granted due process (Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat) . That said, I firmly submit that five- division world champion Floyd Mayweather Junior (41-0) falls within these presumptions. More to the point, I am not ready to join those who have rushed to judgment in their sanctimonious “rage.”
However, though clearly unlike the nature of Edwin Valero’s cascading and horrific issues, the recent headlines surrounding Floyd’s out-of-the ring activities have been hardly encouraging and have flashed warning signs like a broken traffic street light. Floyd needs better, mentoring and counseling from his closest advisers and he needs it now while the issuess are out there. His path continues to rapidly move in the wrong direction. Where there is smoke, there are usually smoldering cinders, but hopefully Floyd will get through his legal issues and be exonerated of the growing list of charges alleged against him (which now include several felony charges and several misdemeanor chargers as well as civil claims). The latest is a misdemeanor battery charge after he allegedly poked a security officer in the face late last year. Now, Floyd reportedly is being sued by his Home Owner's Association, which alleges that the boxer's temper issues have become a threat to his gated Las Vegas community and the people who work there.
But meanwhile and whatever the case, he owes it to himself and to his fans to get back in the ring and do what he does best, because that will be the only way to change his direction. And doing what he does best is repeatedly engaging in “uncivil, hostile, harassing, and threatening behavior, and participating in battery and violence”—IN THE RING-and only in the ring.
Floyd is still at the absolute peak of his earning power though not popularity and hecertainly has mega fights out there which the fans will gladly pay to watch.
Hopefully, it’s not too late. We will soon find out.
