Floyd Mayweather is finally speaking out against abuse allegations.
The boxing champ took time to clear his name in a recent interview with Sister2Sister.
“Okay, I just want to say, what I do for a living, I’m in a contact sport, right? And if they say someone had bodily harm done to ‘em, since I’m already a fighter, before even giving me a chance, they’re going to say. ‘He’s guilty,’” he said.
According to Floyd, he is only guilty of restraining a woman from harming him and herself.
“Now, restraining a woman that’s on drugs and alcohol, have I ever done that? Yes, from going crazy,” he said. “Holding them like, ‘Relax. You’ve been drinking. You’re not 100 percent coherent. Relax.’ “
He also noted the lack of proof in the allegations that he’s a woman beater and insists he’s not guilty of the rumored offense.
“You know, to where they say, ‘Okay, he’s kicked and beat a woman,’ but we’ve yet to have proof. Of course if Floyd Mayweather has brutally beaten a woman, you’re going to show pictures. And like I always say, no disrespect to the Simpson family, but you’ve seen OJ and Nicole. No disrespect to Chris Brown and Rihanna, but you’ve seen Rihanna,” he said. “But you’ve yet to see pictures of Floyd Mayweather and a battered woman.”
According to Floyd, he wouldn’t be in such high demand with the ladies if he was abusive.
“And the thing is, if I’m beating all these women, why do so many women find me interesting and want to be within my circle?”
