Jamie: Oh, honey, when I said I was going to do Floyd Mayweather, they said, “He beats them women up,” and “He doesn’t care about women,” and all that. I think I heard that about you before I heard about how great you are.
Floyd: Okay, I just want to say, what I do for a living, I’m in a contact sport, right? And if they say someone had bodily harm done to ‘em, since I’m already a fighter, before even giving me a chance, they’re going to say. “He’s guilty.” Now, restraining a woman that’s on drugs and alcohol, have I ever done that? Yes, from going crazy.
Jamie: When you say restraining, do you mean pushing them?
Floyd: No, holding them.
Jamie: Holding them back.
Floyd: Holding them like, “Relax. You’ve been drinking. You’re not 100 percent coherent. Relax.” You know, to where they say, “Okay, he’s kicked and beat a woman,” but we’ve yet to have proof. Of course if Floyd Mayweather has brutally beaten a woman, you’re going to show pictures. And like I always say, no disrespect to the Simpson family, but you’ve seen OJ and Nicole. No disrespect to Chris Brown and Rihanna, but you’ve seen Rihanna. But you’ve yet to see pictures of Floyd Mayweather and a battered woman. And the thing is, if I’m beating all these women, why do so many women find me interesting and want to be within my circle?
