Floyd Mayweather recently sat down for an interview with the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast, where he addressed people taking shots at his intelligence.
Around the 12:37 mark in the above video, Floyd stated, "I feel like, the way I wanna live my life, I live my life the way I wanna live it and no matter what, you can't please everybody because—it's so crazy." He added, "In the beginning, I feel like people was rootin' for me. Wanted the best for me. And the more and more, as I accomplished more and kept accomplishing things, then you start seeing different things.
"You start seeing, 'Oh, he’s a wife-beater' or 'He's not that smart.' You hear so many different things and I just felt like, okay, you're entitled to believe whatever you wanna believe. But I had to have some type of common sense, some type of smarts, some type of intelligence, to be where I'm at. I've been living this same life for twenty-five years."
