Floyd Mayweather

My Obnoxious Partying

Is Just An Act

8/25/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0824-mayweather-july-2011
Floyd Mayweather
claims the only reason he parties his face off at nightclubs ... and passes out booze ... and flashes money ... and otherwise acts like a complete a-hole ... is JUST to promote his fights.

It's all in legal docs filed by Pretty Boy Floyd as part of his ongoing war with Manny Pacquiao -- this time, Mayweather responded to allegations that he was irresponsibly partying around the country instead of attending a deposition.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Mayweather claims the nightclubbing is "not random acts of partying, but calculated promotional events designed to appeal to his fan base and maintain his public presence."

Mayweather acknowledges that "many people hate him" because of his "Money" Mayweather alter ego -- but explains, "If even those who dislike him are willing to pay for the privilege of watching the fight, he is more profitable."

Mayweather also declares that he "does not drink, smoke or take drugs."

The fighter insists he MUST participate in these "promotional activities" -- and that's one of the reasons why he did not appear to be deposed on any of the dates requested by Pacquiao's camp.

So, we gotta ask ...

This a**hole is becoming more and more an a**hole. He keeps lying and thinks a Judge and people with brains would believe him. He is very stupid. Only Floydrats who tolerates everything he says and he does will buy what he says. I think this excuse of a human being is the one on PEDS, his excuses and stupidity are beyond belief!

So idiot Floyd jr. beating up women, beating up people, acting like a total *******, racist rants, accusing Pacquiao of steroid use, etc. were all calculated acts designed to excite his fan base and maintain his public presence. Who the hell are you trying to fool, Floyd?!!

At every turn, Mayweather avoids Paq-man. He won't even face him in court. I can't wait until Paq peppers his ass.

I have known Floyd for many years and it IS true. He doesn't drink or smoke. He can be a bit of human idiot, and he gets pretty darn mouthy once in a while. But any one of us can be that as well. Hopefully, his camp will get a clue and nip this in the bud.. quickly!

Floyd should give the public more respect, rather than thinking we are stupid and gullible. His excused just don't fly.

Ripley believe it or not    

Yeah right. This was his own private party. He did not invite any news caster to show this and promote. The one who took picture is to expose his stupidity. The news was notintentionally showed this for promotion. Okay floyd fans believe it or not

This a-hole is just trying to justify his stupid acts simply because the public reacted negatively for burning in public a $100 bill. If TMZ didn't publicize that moronic act of his, definitely he will never come up with his bs statement that what he did was just an act to promote himself and whatever delusions he has.

Definitely a stupid loser.

He could put lots of animosity and questions to shame if he would just go ahead and accept a fight with Manny. That money he is burning would be chicken feed compared to the purse.

But while I think he is a fast, accurate and powerful boxer, he knows he will get all he wants from Manny, and maybe he just doesn't want it. He isn't doing himself any favors regardless if we like him or not.

Lil Fraud is not a true fraud for nothing. Who is he fooling? Those who believe this congenital liar can follow him blindly into oblivion. His fear and envy of Pacquiao is very obvious and to promote his fights, he is using the name of Pacquiao all the time.
