Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez face off during the official weigh-in for their much-anticipated fight Saturday in Las Vegas. Mayweather weighed in at a few pounds over limit...
And they are looking at the scale, right?
Mayweather had no problem striking his best vogue and "no homo" poses with Marquez and promoter slash former boxer Oscar De La Hoya. This was a far cry from his appearance earlier in the week on Chelsea Lately to promote the bout. During the interview, Mayweather made random jokes about watersports, cross-dressing and gay sex. It all started "when Chelsea told Mayweather to get comfy and put one of his legs on the chair," reports Cyd Ziegler at Outsports, who offers this transcript.
MAYWEATHER: If I do that then they gonna think I’m heeey [flip of the wrist]. That ain’t my style.
CHELSEA: I don’ think anybody thinks that about you.
MAYWEATHER:: Oh, OK.
CHELSEA: You talk a lot of trash before you fight somebody, right? You like to really…you didn’t like Oscar de la Hoya at all.
MAYWEATHER: Well, um, you wouldn’t like a man who wears fishnets.
CHELSEA: I don’t like men who wear fishnets, unless they’re gay and they’re out of the closet. Then I can support that.
MAYWEATHER: OK, he hidin’.
Mayweather randomly implied actor Eddie Murphy is gay, too.
MAYWEATHER: Eddie Murphy does some great movies.
CHELSEA: Are you good friends with him?
MAYWEATHER: Not good friends with him. We cool. I see him at the NBA Championship game. I see him every now and then. And we speak. Cool guy.
CHELSEA: But you’re not good friends with him?
MAYWEATHER: Not friends like that. I mean, he made good movies.
CHELSEA: I got the movie part.
MAYWEATHER: Why you gotta say that?
CHELSEA: Nobody thinks you’re sleeping with Eddie Murphy.
MAYWEATHER: OK, gotta stay clear.
