Floyd Mayweather has certainly changed his tune since he first spoke out about police brutality. Back in 2016, he declared that “all lives matter” and insinuated that if people just “follow order,” society would be a better place.
“I’m here to say all lives matter,” the retired boxer told “The Boxing Voice” on Saturday. “You know, a lot of times, we get stuck, and we are followers. When you hear one person say ‘black lives matter’ or ‘blue lives matter,’ all lives matter.”
He continued: “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.”
Fast forward to 2020 and he has certainly changed his tune.
During a recent appearance on Club Shay Shay, the hot new podcast hosted by Shannon Sharpe, the retired undefeated boxer spoke on what happen to George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and what needs to change going forward.
Mayweather wants to see harsher penalties towards officers that would guarantee change between cops and minorities.
“We need to have different policies come in as far as these police officers. If there is something that is not done right, you guys get the death penalty or you guys get life without parole.”
“If that happens, then guess what? Then, we going to get some different results. Then, this will stop.”
