Floyd Mayweather Isn't Ducking Manny Pacquaio; He's Being Persecuted, Or Something

Floyd Mayweather Jr. didn't take too kindly to Sirius radio host Rude Jude's accusation that he's afraid to fight Manny Pacquiao. So Mayweather decided to call Jude's show yesterday, at the urging of 50 Cent, and you can listen to the audio above. Mayweather never directly addresses the issue at hand, choosing instead to maneuver defensively. The conversation degenerates almost immediately, and by the 1:47 mark Mayweather is reduced to counterpunching with this: "I guarantee you you're not black." A flurry of mindless shouting, cursing and insults gets tossed after that. Mayweather eventually hangs up, but not before he says something about "racial profiling" and both sides get in last-second jabs with gay slurs. My scorecard says the whole thing was incredibly stupid. [Larry Brown Sports, via World Star Hip Hop; h/t to Donald B.]
