Floyd Mayweather Says He Has No Interest In Giving Back! His Money is HIS!!!

20140531-170136-61296890.jpg

Late last year, radio personality Kelly Mac interviewed outspoken and undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather. The boxer confessed that he has a “good heart,” but that he does not feel obligated to give to charities, specifically in Africa.

“[People] say ‘well, he got all this money, why is he not giving to Africa?’” starts Mayweather. “Well, what has Africa given to us?
What has Africa came and gave to my children and to my family? Things work two ways.”
He then discussed the threat that he believes giving too much money to charity can cause.
“Everybody’s always talking about giving, giving, giving. That’s the problem. Everybody’s doing so much giving, at the end of the day, they may not have nothing. Then they’ll say ‘why was he giving this to that person, and giving this to that person when he should have been saving?’”
Mayweather goes on to say that he should be able to do whatever he wants with his earnings, such as using it to provide for himself and his family.
“I never got involved in the sport of boxing to say ‘I’m going to fight and make hundreds of millions of dollars and just give it all away.’ If I’m gonna mess money off in a bad way, I’m going to spend it on myself. I’m going to do what I want to do with my money. You hear people talking about, ‘well, he should…donate to this or donate to that.’ No, I should donate to Floyd Mayweather, donate to Floyd Mayweather’s family. Because that’s what it’s about.”
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mayweather, 37, is worth $170 million. Mayweather also has a charity, The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Foundation, in which the foundation declares to help underprivileged youth in Las Vegas, Nevada.

  1. He’s not the fool here, we the ppl in the hood who are strugglin wit bills, & giving this man our hard earned $$$ are. He’s a hustler at heart, that’s his priority. We the ppl in the hood are the ones that dont know the power of a dollar. If no one paid for his fight the next rip, I guarantee he’d have a change in heart. But until that happens we cant cry bout the shh. Cuz we’ll all be tryna watch the next 1(which includes me). #Itiswatitis #pimps&hoes

  2. I can only respond as the Word of God says. “Give and it shall be given back to you. Pressed down shaken together and running over”. If you put a seed into good ground, it will always grow. But test the ground first. As for Mr Mayweather, this night his soul could be required of him. And where will his riches go then? Something to think about.

  3. Floyd Mayweather came from NOTHING. He knows what it means to have been hungry. His money, true enough, but to refuse to donate money to a good cause; but BURN 10s of thousands of dollars for a camera is just ridiculous. He’s arrogant, ignorant as hayell, and just an all-around grime-ball type of dude.

  4. G Huff Ohio’s Best I think people are going to criticize if folks give or don’t. me personally I didn’t have a problem with Dr. Dre giving to USC. that might be his favorite school. don’t matter if it’s black or white. but I goes back to what we all agreed on. they can do what they want with their money.

  5. Floyd not giving back isn’t an issue to people, Floyd not giving back to “THEM” is their problem. Dr.Dre gave 30 million to USC and people called him a sellout for not giving that money to an HBCU. Me, personally, I would have given it to an HBCU, but that’s me. Black folks don’t realize that we have to stop relying on celebrities to give back and fix what we can fix ourselves if we decide to do it. Strength are in numbers.

  6. I would love to have $170 million but then again I would hate to have the problems that come with it. I know a lot of people here in the A that have money and are NOT happy and I know a lot of people without money that ARE happy!
