Joe Rogan opens up on Floyd Mayweather
Mayweather last competed in professional boxing in August 2017. ‘Money’ subsequently retired as a professional boxer but has performed in a trio of exhibition bouts in the ensuing years. Mayweather faced Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition bout in Japan in December 2018, winning via first-round TKO.
‘Money’ then faced Logan Paul in another exhibition matchup in June last year. Mayweather then fought Don Moore in his third exhibition bout earlier this month. The two aforesaid fights went the distance and had no official winner, although Mayweather dominated in both fights.
In an edition of the JRE (Joe Rogan Experience) podcast, Rogan stated:
“You know what’s crazy is that Floyd is still doing these exhibitions, making millions.” In regards to Mayweather’s latest exhibition bout, Rogan, noted, “Yeah, he looked fantastic.”
Rogan went on to highlight the haircut and look that Mayweather has been sporting over the past several months. The UFC commentator said:
“Yeah, scraggly. I think he’s enjoying that look.” Rogan added, “He was holding the ring card girl’s card and walking around. Did you see what he was doing? He held up the card in between rounds. Floyd walked around with the card. He put on a show because he’s like, he’s – It’s really smart because he’s giving them the money’s worth. It’s not just a boxing exhibition. He’s putting on a show.”
Rogan noted that Mayweather was smiling, laughing, and dancing during the fight. He reiterated that ‘Money’ wasn’t simply participating in an exhibition boxing match but was going all out to put forth an entertaining show for the audience.
