London 2012 Boxing Video: Rau'shee Warren on Training With Floyd Mayweather


This is a video I found surprisingly interesting, as Team USA top gold medal hope Rau'shee Warren discusses training a bit with Floyd Mayweather, who he says didn't exactly show him much support as he was heading into his third Olympics:

"I was talking to (Floyd), we was talking, me and my whole little team, about nine of us. Only thing he was talking about was money. He asked me, 'What do you do?' I'm like, 'I'm going to the Olympics for the third time.' You would think a person like that would honor you for your work. He said, 'Gold medals don't pay bills. Checks do.' I started laughing, like, you forgot you was in my shoes at one point in time."

Mayweather, of course, was a part of Team USA in 1996, winning bronze. It's really not surprising that this is modern Mayweather's take, but it does reek of forgetting where he came from.

(By the way, if the embed doesn't work for you, just click on the video and watch it on YouTube. I mean, they'd hate for these things to get spread around and have people watch them. After all, this video, with an interesting quote from an interesting Olympic athlete, has a whopping 1600 views at this point.)
