Aljamain Sterling Recalls Floyd Mayweather Incident
Aljamain Sterling has revealed how he was ready to ‘fight it out’ with Mayweather back in 2016 after the incident occurred at a party the party was attending. Sterling spoke to Spinnin’ Backfist to reveal the story.
“He sent over his minions to try to pick her up, this was back in like 2016 I think. But I was still undefeated at the time. He sent over a guy first who said we can both come down and I was like, ‘Man I’m not stupid’.
“If I come over there you guys are going to try and take her up and try to push me back and then I will face some type of way and I will have to create a scene because you are not going to punk me like that. He left and came back with a girl who said, ‘Yeah you can both come down’. I was like, ‘Listen I know how the scene of this movie goes’.
“You can tell Floyd he is undefeated in boxing and I am undefeated in MMA, if we want to figure out what is the better sport we could fight out today. I don’t think they went and actually told him that, but listen I am a big fan but you aren’t about to have me looking stupid out here.” (Transcribed by Mirror)
