The New Mayweather?

+

As some of you may have heard, a Mayweather Instagram appeared, mocking De La Hoya's substance abuse problem. It is in the link. The feeling has grown on me in the past few months that Mayweather's former, crude and offensive "ghettiquette" may actually be a thing of the past. He is still arrogant to an extent, but fairly muted about it, and really, he does have substantial grounds for the things he says about himself. In any case, he was gracious to and appreciative of De La Hoya's plight before the Alvarez fight, and was fair and balanced about Alvarez before and after that fight. Mayweather offended me for quite a few years, and his remarks about Pacquiao edged near the boundary of "free" speech and "hate" speech. I have no qualms about saying that I detested him for a long time. Since his incarceration, however someone else named "Floyd Mayweather Jr." seems to have emerged, someone I at least can actually accord some measure of respect as a human being as well as a boxer. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2013/09/floyd-mayweather-apologizes-for-mocking-de-la-hoyas-drug-addiction/
