In today’s “All Women Beaters Stick Together News”, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather shared his opinion on the NFL suspending Ray Rice, and it’s pretty much what you expected. Mayweather said that the NFL should’ve stuck to the initial two-game ban that was announced after the Baltimore Ravens running back was arrested on domestic violence charges earlier this year.
Mayweather, who is currently being sued by a former fiancee for allegedly beating and humiliating her, said a deal’s a deal.
“They had said that they had suspended him for two games,” Mayweather told reporters, according to The Ring. “Whether they saw the tape or not, I truly believe a person should stick to their word. If you tell me you’re going to do something, do what you say you’re going to do. But once again, I’m not in the NFL, so I can’t really speak about the situation.”
Mayweather served two months in jail in 2012 after he pleaded guilty to domestic battery charges and even after seeing the video doesn’t think the NFL should’ve extended the suspension.
“I think there are a lot worst things that go on in other people’s households also. It’s just not caught on video,” said Mayweather.
Mayweather even went on to say how he’s been falsely accused before.
However, Mayweather said he’s been the victim of false accusations.
“Like I’ve said in the past, no bumps, no bruises, no nothing,” Mayweather said. “With O.J. and Nicole (Simpson), you seen pictures. With Chris Brown and Rihanna, you seen pictures. With (Chad) Ochocinco and Evelyn, you seen pictures. You guys have yet to see any pictures of a battered woman, a woman who says she was kicked and beaten (by Mayweather). So I just live my life and try to stay positive, and try to become a better person each and every day.”
“I know he’s probably going through a lot right now because football is his passion, football is his love. It’s no different than with me being in the fight game,” Mayweather was quoted as saying. “If they told me, ‘Floyd, you’ve got the biggest deal in sports history,’ and then a couple months later, they say, ‘You know what, your deal is taken away from you’ — oh, man. It’s not really just the money, it’s just the love of the sport, the passion.”
