UFC’s walking legend, Anderson Silva may be coming off a defeat, but it doesn’t stop the former champ from insulting another legend. Specifically undefeated champ Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. During a recent interview with Sway of Sway in the Morning on Shade 45.
“Who? Who? Boxing is a great sport. My dad fight boxing for long time in Brazil. I like the story. Boxing have traditional story and oeople in United States love boxing. I watch Roy Jones, Oscar de La Hoya, Vinny Pazienza, The big man, the great man in boxing in my opinion is Muhammad Ali is the great boxer. He give the chance to change the world inside the ring and outside. Boxers have the great story. I respect for boxing. Floyd Mayweather? I don’t know this guy. Is he Papa Smurf? Mayweather is good boxing. This is my opinion. The guy no respect me. I respect all the guys in the world. Mayweather is a part of this story in the world. I’m part of the sport in the world. Mayweather need to respect this, but this guy no respect nothing. Sorry, but I no respect Mayweather.”
Mayweather is known to show lack of respect for mixed martial artist as well as the sport itself. No surprise that silva would take offense.
