You know, everybody has a slogan, and once you beat people over the head with it so much, then that's what you'll eventually be called once you retire from the sport or whatever.

I'm just an American dream.

What I learned from boxing and what everyone can take in real life is to follow directions, follow order. Don't give nobody a hard time.

My kids are the future of the Mayweather family and of the Mayweather brand. I feel our family is stronger if we stay together.

I push myself to the limit.

I haven't took no punishment. There's nothing cool about taking punishment.

When you go back and really listen to the legendary rappers, this is timeless music. Guys like Biggie, guys like Pac, timeless music.

Nobody is faster than me.

I knew boxing before I knew anything else.

When they said, 'Why is Floyd Mayweather not fighting Manny Pacquiao?' it was because Manny Pacquiao had a boss. I don't have a boss.

In the end, you have to protect yourself at all times.

I'm not in this sport to say a guy can beat me.

What's so crazy is when you give interviews to reporters that don't really care too much for you, basically what they're going to do is write what they want to write and discredit you. They're going to write and say what they want to say, no matter what you tell them.

When I was about 8 or 9, I lived in New Jersey with my mother and we were seven deep in one bedroom and sometimes we didn't have electricity.

I like to play table tennis, spend time with my kids.

I'm not here to judge Mike Tyson. I'm not here to judge nobody. I'm not here to monitor no other fighters. I respect him for what he did in the sport of boxing. He was an entertainer.

I got a granite chin.

The American fans would love to see me fight anybody.

I can get a black eye, a bloody nose. I can have a bad day in the gym. At the end of the day, I don't have a bad payday, and I don't have a bad night under the lights... I get bumps, bruises... but I don't have a bad night.

I've set the model of showing fighters how they should conduct their business.

Even though I made $800 million, I am still grounded.

I commend Chris Brown and Soulja Boy for going out there for so many years and entertaining the people.

If I'm scared and I'm a coward, why do you guys want to see me fight?

When you talking boxing, you talking me.

I like fighters who come to fight.

Boxing is what pays my bills.

I'm not in this sport to take punishment.

I'm a man of my word.

I think my grandmother saw my potential first. When I was young, I told her, 'I think I should get a job.' She said, 'No, just keep boxing.'

God only made one thing in this world that's perfect - and that's my boxing record.

Everywhere I go, I will make a good payday. But we got to choose the right opponent and the right time and the right venue.

Different days, I think about different victories. Ricky Hatton is one of those fights. I respect Ricky Hatton. He's a warrior. He's a hell of a warrior.

Racism still exists in the sport of boxing.

I basically raised myself.

I'm not here to judge. We don't know what Trump can do.

Floyd Mayweather is in the sport to give great performances.

I ain't never nervous. Never nervous.

When you're the best, you only want to surround yourself with the best.

A lot of times, in the beginning of my career, I put pressure on myself just because I wanted to perform so well. I just wanted to be perfect.

I'm a professional fighter and like most professional fighters I have had difficulties with my hands in the past.

Some people are just right for you.

I just want to be the best. I haven't been in an all-out war. That doesn't mean I'm not the best.

I'm looking to expand my portfolio while I'm on top and while I'm young.

People have said things about me, and wrote and criticized me about things in the past, but it goes in one ear and out the other.

I always put my boxing first.

Everything people say I couldn't do I've done.

Boxing is real easy. Life is much harder.

You have good days, you have bad days. But the main thing is to grow mentally.

I got a big mouth.
