Video: Mayweather on Jeremy Lin

By Michael Woods




Floyd Mayweather Jr. sat down with ESPN New York's NYFightBlog this week in Harlem to talk about fighting Miguel Cotto, a possible fight against Manny Pacquiao, and the comments he made about the Knicks' Jeremy Lin (at the 3:10 mark).

The quotes on Lin: "When certain things is tweeted and said, what they try to do is take the negative out of what I said and drag my name through the mud, forgetting to let the fans know that I said Jeremy Lin was a good player. They failed to put that in there when I said Jeremy Lin was a good player.

“I meant what I said. [But] I don't have no hard feelings toward anyone, or I don't have no hard feelings toward Jeremy Lin."

Knicks fans, you buyin' what Floyd's selling?
