Sports: Mayweather Believes He's Better Than Ali

The flamboyant boxer formally known as Money Mayweather has never been a fan of biting his tongue.

He also hasn't been shy about showing how his handwork helped to create his lavishly wealthy lifestyle. Well in the eyes of some boxing enthusiast and pundits, the champ has bite off more than he can chew with the recents comments made during an interview with ESPN First Take commentator Stephen A. Smith. 

"No one can ever brainwash me to make me believe that Sugar Ray Robinson and Muhammad Ali was better than me. No one could ever brainwash me and tell me that. But one thing I will do—I'm going to take my hat off to them and respect those guys because those are the guys that paved the way for me to be where I'm at today. ...

Stephen A. chimed in by asking the boxer if he really believed Muhammad Ali wasn't better than him. Floyd Replies:

... Leon Spinks beat him when he had seven fights. They'd never put a fighter in there with Floyd Mayweather with seven fights. So you gonna tell me that it's cool to lay on the ropes and take punishment and let a man tire himself out from beating you and then he basically fatigued? You hit him with a few punches and he go down and quit, and you want to be glorified for that?

The boxer is known to rattle people cages leading up to his fights but is he a little out of line just or just simply promoting the fight with his most recent remarks. Either way, Mayweather can't take back what he said and on May 2nd all eyes will most likely be on him with what he said in mind. Check out the video below.
