The Trouble With Floyd Mayweather

http://deadspin.com/the-trouble-with-floyd-mayweather-1605217498

Floyd Mayweather is a misogynist. And not just a misogynist, but a batterer, and a serial batterer at that. This is a statement of fact that you will rarely see or hear from the professional boxing media, many of whom remain hopelessly dependent on the reigning box office king's goodwill for access. It's certainly not one you will hear from any of the assembled talking heads on Showtime, the CBS-owned cable network to which Mayweather is contractually wed. And while it may be easy enough to guess why the boxing media has been so willing to cover for Mayweather's sins, it's less obvious why so many others are so willing to look the other way.

1. It's pretty much never surprising to find out...

...that someone who punches people in the head for a living is also an asshole in his free time.
