Floyd Mayweather, an amazingly successful boxer, is claiming that he would have made more than the hundreds of millions he’s already made, if only he was white.
Floyd Mayweather is the only athlete other than golfer Tiger Woods to top $100 million in pay from his sport. Estimates suggest Mayweather is worth around $295 million. It should be noted that both Mayweather and Woods are black.
Additionally, Joe Calzaghe, a white world famous undefeated boxer, was worth $22 million when he retired.
Regardless of all of this, Mayweather referenced Ferguson in a recent interview when he claimed he should be worth billions and would be if only he were white. He bluntly says boxing is racist towards him because he’s black and is only paid hundreds of millions.
