Floyd Mayweather is ready to knock out his opponent, Marcos Maidana in Saturday night’s rematch. Mayweather says he has trained extra hard to get into fighting shape to face Maidana, who gave him a run for his money during their last fight.
When we asked Mayweather why he apologized for his comments on the Ray Rice case, he responded he only wants to focus on Saturday’s fight.
After hearing about Rice’s suspension from the NFL this week, Mayweather told reporters, “I think there’s a lot worse things that go on in other people’s households. It’s just not caught on video, if that’s safe to say. You know I wish Ray Rice nothing but the best.”
He later apologized. “If I offended anyone, I apologize,” he said. “I didn’t mean to offend anyone and I apologize to the NFL and anyone else that got offended. I’m not perfect. I make mistakes and I don’t condone that at all.”
When pressed to discuss Rice’s situation, Mayweather declined further comment. We asked Mayweather about his own involvement in a domestic violence dispute. He responded, “No one has ever seen any bumps or bruises, everything has been hear say and I took a plea deal.”
