In Case You Were Wondering, Floyd Mayweather Can Read

In Case You Were Wondering, Floyd Mayweather Can Read

If you've been following the Mayweather/McGregor promotional tour, you might have seen McGregor ask the boxer why he had brought a school bag when he couldn't read.

Now, in response to the rather odd insult, BSO has released a clip which not only shows Mayweather reading, but has him reacting to the claims that he can't.

Because, you see, this isn't the first time Mayweather has been called illiterate. Way back in 2014, rapper 50 Cent asked Mayweather to read a page from a Harry Potter book and post it to his account, to 'prove' he could read. Fiddy would then give $750,000 (£580,000) to a charity of Mayweather's choice.

Honestly, this happened. 2014 was fucking weird.


Refusing to give up, the rapper then challenged Mayweather to read a page from The Cat in the Hat on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, if he was struggling with Harry Potter.

Anyway, Mayweather didn't fancy finding out about the adventures of Harry, Ron and Hermione, or Dr Seuss' most famous work for that matter. Instead, he posted this in response:

Yeah, fair enough.

Later in 2014, footage turned up online of Mayweather struggling through a reading for a radio show, causing the boxing legend to speak out.

He said: "I don't get paid to read radio drops. I'm capable of having a bad day. I'm not perfect. You know as well as I know, they edited the tape how they wanted to do it.

"Making fun of a person because they can't read is not funny. It's tragic. If I really couldn't read, it would make my accomplishments that much more amazing."

Well said. So, now we all know he can read, can we move on?
