Floyd Mayweather Fires Back At Reading Critics

Floyd Mayweather has never lost- that is, until he was outed yesterday by the Internet as someone who doesn’t quite know how to read.

Yesterday, this video, from the radio program “The Breakfast Club on Power 105, was posted and quickly topped over 1 million views. It shows Mayweather really, really struggling to get through a few sentences (Start at the 2 minute mark):

Mayweather is obviously a dick, so it’s hard to feel bad for him. But still, some people felt a little sympathetic, especially when 50 Cent challenged Floyd to read ONE PAGE of a Harry Potter book in exchange for a quarter million dollar donation to ALS. Brutal.

Mayweather heard the criticism, and he fired back at the Internet late last night with this tweet:

Already put together a t-shirt concept:
