Mayweather vs Ortiz: Floyd Mayweather Answers Fan Questions (Video)


Floyd, what does it take to be at the top?

Floyd: It takes, um, dedication, hard work, prayers, belief, and a good team to be at the top.

Scott's Take: Hard work! Dedication! Hard work! Dedication!

What's your diet like when you are training for a fight?

Floyd: Lately I've been having my chef, you know, a solid meal, try to eat organic food, but you know, of course, I'm a junk food junkie. I like to eat a lot of junk food. But I'm trying to eat a lot better. All I'm trying to do is grow and become a better person, each and every day.

Scott's Take: Floyd's definition of "junk food junkie" and mine are different, as I have seen myself in the mirror.

Floyd, what do you want your legacy to be?

Floyd: I just want to be known as, I call it TBE, the best ever. A lot of times, people don't wanna give me my, uh -- I don't really worry about them, people if they don't want to give me my props. My record speaks for itself. My performances, you know, speak for itself. As far when I go out there and I fight, they say, a future Hall of Famer, or fighters that they are saying that's real good, or fighters they're saying that is great, I beat these fighters and make them look like ordinary fighters. You know, just ordinary joes, and they say it's not good enough. So, only thing I can do is hope for the best, keep my fingers crossed, and just hope that, um, when it's all said and done, I am one of the all-time greats, you know, in the Hall of Fame.

Scott's Take: Floyd worries about people not giving him his props all the time. He talks about it all the time.

What advice would you give young guys who want to start boxing or to fighters early on the path?

Floyd: Without my team, and without believing in the higher being, and without my mother, and even without my father -- my father, he started me off at the age of 10. And my dad was with me from the age of 10 to 16. And then from there, Roger took me under his wing, and then, um, here we are right now. Six world titles later.

Scott's Take: That's not really advice. He couldn't even muster a "work hard and get a college degree first because boxing is hard."
