Pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr has released a heartfelt statement to his fans in a bid to make amends for what the current two-weight world champion labelled ‘childish’ behaviour of some of his team members.
The 38 year-old, who is known for showing of his extravagant lifestyle, is adamant that acts by some of those people who claim to be members of ‘The Money Team’ are not a true reflection on himself.
Mayweather also rubberstamped that he will indeed return to action on September 12.
Here is the apology in full:
“Sure I enjoy the company of my friends. I enjoy the unprecedented lifestyle my hard work has afforded me. I enjoy spending my free time traveling the world and having fun with my children.
“These are the things that mean most to me and I have become accustomed to blocking out negativity and refocusing my energy on those deserving of it….And more importantly, the people who bring me true happiness.
“With that said, I apologize for subjecting my fans and followers to the nonsense and childish behavior of some people close to me. At this level, I understand the acts of the company I keep is often a reflection of me and I take responsibility to make sure those type of antics are not tolerated or rewarded.
“Throwing stones is a sign of weakness- I choose to be strong. To My fans, your loyalty and support has given me the best 20 years I could ask for and while at the top, I plan to go out on top….see you back in the ring September 12th!”
