Dana White: ‘Floyd Mayweather is what’s wrong with boxing’

Rick Chandler


First you should know that Dana White and Floyd Mayweather have a history together. White spent a good portion of his childhood in Las Vegas, and began a professional training career there. And he’s argued with Mayweather in the past about boxing vs. mixed martial arts, at one point challenging Mayweather to get into the UFC ring with one of his f!ghters, which Mayweather did not accept.

Then on Wednesday White appeared on WFAN in New York to discuss the possibility of MMA coming to New York (don’t hold your breath), and the conversation came around to Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

White:

"I’m a huge, huge Manny Pacquiao fan. He is boxing right now. Floyd Mayweather, and Floyd and I go way back and I told Floyd to his face too, Floyd is one of the big problems with boxing. Holding out, not taking this f!ght with Manny Pacquiao, and doing what he’s doing. I think Manny Pacquiao is boxing. Everything about him is positive and I love the guy.”

 here.

Here’s some background: In 2007, Mayweather was quoted in a Yahoo Sports story saying that the UFC was inferior to boxing. “UFC’s champions can’t handle boxing. That’s why they are in UFC.”

White was not amused:

“I used to talk like Floyd Mayweather when I was involved in boxing. I talked just like him, until I educated myself about this sport. These guys are amazing athletes, Floyd Mayweather is one of the best boxers ever, (and) Sean Sherk will whoop his a.ss in under two minutes. Any day that Mayweather wants to put his money and his a.ss where his mouth is, I’m ready. If he wants to step up, let’s do it. I’m willing to put together a f!ght for Sean Sherk and Floyd Mayweather with numbers that would make sense for Floyd. And I guarantee you he would not accept it. Floyd Mayweather would never f!ght in the UFC because he would get his head ripped off.”

And Floyd would beat the sh*t out of any UFC f!ghter in a boxing ring. This is pointless. Pacman is just as hard in negotiations as Floyd is, actually he's tougher. And he would never f!ght in the UFC either. U think Floyd or Manny will f!ght in a different sport for about a tenth of what they get boxing?

Looks like white just wanted to take a shot at Floyd. He didn't really explain his reasoning other then saying he's a big manny fan

dana only thinks floyd is bad for boxing because he pays his f!ghters 30k to f!ght in a main event. yea the odd f!ghter gets 200k but that money is nothing to what a guy like Floyd gets






dana i can not agree with you here


at you throwing it in the interview that mayweather should try a ufc bout. dana is a Jewish penny pincher, he wouldn't spend that money.


i respect MMA guys 100 percent. how come they when they talk a boxer vs a mma f!ghter. its always with mma rules? i mean really does dana think people are using triangle chokes and arm bars in the street/bar f!ghts, only f*ggots kick..

Of course you disagree. What do you know?


It's the fastest growing sport, and has the lowest paid athletes. He bribes his athletes to compete in a manner which may not be beneficial to their success. He is one person who has total authority over everyone. So, no one has any rights, they do as their told or get fired.

... but hey, the idiot fans are happy and the boss who makes all the money is happy.... so who cares, right?

Much bigger MMA fan than boxing, and Dana is full of sh*t lol. Didn't give any reason besides "I'm a Manny fan" Plus Dana is infamous for underpaying f!ghters, and he got mad at Fedor for not wanting to come to UFC, even though he would make less money. What type of sh*t is Dana on

Hate it or love it MMA is the fastest growing sport. And fact is Dana White and the UFC are getting paid big time. May not be the most ethical, but other business wish they could do the same.

Whoa! From what I understand Dana offered Fedor the biggest MMA contract ever. he just refused to make M-1 a co-promoter, which I dont think anyone can blame him for. Matter of fact he bought out strike force who Fedor signed with. Dana is a damn good business man.

Dana White is the same dude who wont make the GSP-Anderson Silva UFC superf!ght. He needs to seriously shut the fu*k up. In 20 years when some new sport has eclipsed MMA, I wanna see where his mouth will be. But for now, either shut the fu*k up and make GSP-Silva you bald headed neanderthal bi*ch.

Until Manny f!ghts some young, up and coming f!ghter who actually holds a title...HE'S what's wrong with boxing. And more than what Dana accused Floyd of being. If you can't admit he cherry picks too, you're mentally retarded.

I agree to an extent, but they make more than whats announced... endorsements, under the table deals, f!ght bonuses, etc...

And to say that Floyd makes millions, yeah cuz they build the entire card around the main event... No one cares about boxing undercards, no one, unless ur a huge fan of the sport...
