In a way Floyd sold is soul to the devil for money,he chose to play the villian to sell more tickets and now he has to live with the backlash that comes with it whether he likes it or not,but what he's done is a generous offer and deserves props for that.
He didn't sell his soul, he made a smart business decision and a necessary one for the dying sport of boxing. Anything, and I mean ANYTHING in the world of entertainment needs drama in order to keep viewers interested. Sports are a form of entertainment. Boxing is a sport was dying and needed a villain. Mayweather stepped up. It was a brave move, not an evil one.
The people who really know him, knows who he is and that's all that matters to him. Don't get it twisted, he's not looking for any compassion from anyone by giving this generous offer. This is just him putting it down for his team. That's why he said "The Money Team", not "I".
