As soon as the video of NFL player, Ray Rice assaulting his wife in an elevator came out on Monday, people began to make comparisons between him and Floyd Mayweather. It was just a matter of time before the championship boxer responded to these comparisons and now video has been released of him doing exactly that.
In a video interview with FightHub TV, the 37-year-old opens up saying that he fully supports Rice, stating, “I wish something positive out of the situation.”
When asked if he had seen the surveillance video taken from the elevator, he says that he has, but that “[There are] a lot worse things that go on in other people’s households also … it’s just not caught on video.”
Floyd has himself dealt with domestic violence in the past and even served two months in the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas back in 2012 for attacking Josie Harris, the mother of his two of his children. When asked about his own situation, he responded stating that his case is different than other celeb domestic violence cases because there is no visual proof that it happened.
“I’m pretty sure that with my situation, no bumps, no bruises, no nothing … with OJ and Nicole, you seen pictures. With Chris Brown and Rihanna, you seen pictures. With Ochocinco and Evelyn, you seen pictures.”
