Floyd Mayweather beats women. This much is obvious, but for whatever reason it took Rachel Nichols on CNN's Unguarded to actually ask "Money" about his long history as a misogynist and domestic abuser in light of his upcoming bout Saturday against Marcos Maidana. His answers will leave you quite unsatisfied.
The relevant transcript, from closed captioning:
>> Okay, you are someone with a history of domestic violence yourself. You have even been to jail for it, why should fans root for you with this kind of history?
>> Everything has been allegations. Nothing has been proven. So, you know that's life.
>> The incident you went to jail for the mother of your three children did show some bruises, a concussion when she went to the hospital, it was your own kids who called the police, gave them a detailed description of the abuse, there has been documentation?
>> Uh-huh. Once again, no pictures. Just hearsay and allegations. And I signed a plea-bargain. Once again, not true.
>> But the website Deadspin detailed seven physical assaults on five women that resulted in arrest or citation, are we supposed to believe all the women are lying including the incidents when there were witnesses like your own kids?
>> Everybody actually, everybody is entitled to their own opinion. When it is all said and done, only God can judge me.
>> We have seen, the public wants domestic abuse in the country addressed would you consider donating any of the $30 million that you will make this weekend to an organization that educates against abuse?
>> This weekend, what I will do with that millions and millions of dollars be saved for my children because my children are who I love and that's who i care about.
(Those children who he loves, cares about, and threatened to beat brutally if they dared call 911 while he made death threats against their mother, according to police.)
