Floyd Mayweather will continue working with Golden Boy

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Although Mayweather mentioned he had no intention of continuing his relationship with Golden Boy upon the depature of Richard Schaefer, he now say he will.

And so the flip-flopping will seemingly never end, according to a RingTV report. When the news broke that Richard Schaefer resigned as CEO from Golden Boy this past June, Mayweather said in no uncertain terms that he was done with his working relationship with Golden Boy. In fact, Mayweather Promotions CEO, Leonard Ellerbe, was quoted as saying that they would "absolutely not" continue working with Golden Boy due to Schaefer's departure.

Fast forward a month later, and the Mayweather-Maidana rematch was announced, with none other than Golden Boy promoting the bout. Even though when the rematch was announced Mayweather and Ellerbe were noncommittal about working with Golden Boy past that specific bout, Mayweather apparently now plans to continue working with the company, that is, until he decides he isn't again. Floyd does have a history of contradicting himself and exhibiting a bit of diarrhea-mouth.

"Richard Schaefer built Golden Boy from the ground up and I think he's an unbelievable guy," Mayweather said. "As far as Oscar, I don't have anything negative to say about him, either. I wish Oscar nothing but the best with his company and he has a lot of fighters. We're going to continue to do business with Oscar."

"I don't really speak to Oscar," he said. "We'll speak and shake hands, even though mine is genuine and his isn't really genuine. But I don't really have anything towards Oscar."

Yes, I get it, money talks and business is business so it makes sense for him to work with Golden Boy until he has his own promotional company in order, if and whenever that truly comes to fruition. Mayweather Promotions has been recently granted a license in New York leading to speculation he might someday fight there, and they're also looking for additional licenses elsewhere.

"I'm looking to apply for a license in Chicago," Ellerbe said. "We're looking at doing a number of different things in a number of different states, not just one particular state in general."

"We've already applied for a license in Nevada," Ellerbe said.

There had been reservations as to whether or not Mayweather Promotions actually would apply for a license in Nevada because he would be required to submit his tax records and be subjected to a promotional hearing in the state. Maybe now all those issues have been ironed out.

But the way he changes his stance on subjects so dramatically and quickly leads me to believe that perhaps once Floyd retires he could have a bright future in political office. Well, only if he stops pulling people's "hoe cards." I'm not sure how well that would go over in congress.
