Floyd Mayweather doesn’t have to worry about negative public relations because his reputation is already irreversibly bad. That’s why he does whatever he damn pleases.
And for his next trick, the free-spending boxer may use his considerable wealth to help out an old friend in a tight spot.
Knight’s lawyer said the co-founder of Death Row Records was ready to face a jury and was optimistic that Mayweather would cover his $10 million bail once a Saturday blockbuster bout with Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas is done.
“My understanding is that Suge is going to be bailed out this coming week,” lawyer Matthew Fletcher told the Daily News outside court.
“We think Mr. Mayweather is going to win the championship and then come champion the day again,” he said. “They’re good friends, and there’s no reason he shouldn’t. And we believe that will happen.”
Now, far be it for me to tell Money how to run his life, but it seems like he’s backed himself into a bit of a corner here. Knight seems like the type of guy who doesn’t handle disappointment very well. That based on many, many incidents.
Also, OF COURSE Mayweather and Knight are friends. It’s just too perfect.
