Floyd Mayweather never lashed out at a judge during his boxing career, as, at 49-0, he never lost a decision. But after his daughter finished second at a cheerleading competition in California, the former pound-for-found boxing king sounded off about the scoring.
TMZ reports that Mayweather complained about the judging after his 12-year-old daughter’s team was named the runner-up in the Jamz Cheer and Dance competition on Sunday.
TMZ spoke to Jeff Krapf, who announced the event. He claims to have heard Mayweather’s tirade.
“I fund this program!” Mayweather said, according to Krapf.
Mayweather, who has not fought since September 2015, told the boxing website Fighthype.com, that he was ready to come out of retirement to fight UFC star Conor McGregor, in a bout that would undoubtedly generate hundreds of millions of dollars. Logistical hurdles remain, however, as the UFC controls McGregor’s promotional rights, and would likely want a significant cut of the money in order to sign off.
