The Spider: 'I no respect Mayweather'
Floyd Mayweather doesn't have anything good to say about Anderson Silva, so Silva doesn't have anything good to say about him, either.
Why are the two combat sports legends waging verbal war? During an interview on SiriusXM's Shade 45, Silva repeatedly tried to deflect questions about boxing's current pound-for-pound king until he finally let his words go. Mayweather talks too much, and his past aim at Silva hit too close to home. "I no respect Mayweather," he told DJ Sway Calloway.
Perhaps the heat stems from a July Mayweather interview, during which he dismissively said this of Silva: "I don't know that guy. Tell me, he's been at the top for 17 years? Seventeen? Half a decade more to go, then talk to me."
As for Silva's response, judge for yourself.
