It seems that boxing’s most prolific fighter is illiterate.
Power 105 disc jockey Charlamagne Tha God played an embarrassing recording on the air last week of boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. struggling to read a few simple sentences.
This prompted rapper 50 cent to challenge Mayweather to a unique ALS challenge – read a page from Harry Potter and he’ll donate $750,000 to a charity of Mayweather’s choice.
It’s not just celebrities making fun of Mayweather, but Twitter users have been mocking the boxer since the news came out with Tweets like, “I bet Floyd hates Alphabet Soup.”
The 37-year-old fighter – with a 46-0 record – responded to the criticism with a Tweet of a cheque made out to him with the caption, “Read this $72,276,000.00. God bless.”
