“I’m a difficult math problem that no one can solve,” Floyd Mayweather, Jr. said today on a national teleconference. “The ultimate goal is how to solve the problem.” Calling himself the greatest fighter of all time, Mayweather said the task is beyond “Sugar” Shane Mosley, whom he will face May 1 in Las Vegas. “Shane done some things in this sport, but this fight is about enhancing my legacy, about proving I’m the best.”
Mayweather and manager Leonard Ellerbe also talked about not fighting for the WBA welterweight title. “At this level it’s not about belts,” said Ellerbe. “It’s about improving legacy and it’s about money. A title fight never entered the picture.” Stay tuned for a full report.
