Floyd Mayweather Jr. was not looking forward to his post boxing victory interview with an HBO sportscaster so much that he verbally attacked him before he could even began to ask questions.
According to TMZ.com:
Floyd Mayweather Jr. was still jonesing for a fight after his controversial knockout of Victor Ortiz last night, so he started one … with an 80-year-old sportscaster!
During the post-fight interview, Floyd started screaming at HBO’s Larry Merchant, getting up in his face and yelling, “You never give me a fair shake. HBO need to fire you. You don’t know s**t about boxing. You ain’t s**t! You’re not s**t!”
But Merchant didn’t back down, getting in the final words when he said, “I wish I was 50 years younger and I’d kick your a**.”
I don’t think that’s a fight Larry would have won at any age! But it’s good to see that he didn’t back down from the verbal assault put on by Floyd. And as a side note Larry…You do need to ask better questions in your post interviews! I mean really? You do ask the dumbest questions around!
