In a recent interview, Mayweather spoke out in defense of now-President Donald Trump’s “grab ’em by the pussy” comments from the infamous Access Hollywood, pointing out that The Don was just talking like a “real man.”
Undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather doesn’t pull any punches, inside the ring or out.
As TMZ reports:
‘Floyd appeared on the ‘Hollywood Unlocked’ show when he was asked about the leaked Access Hollywood video from 2005 — you know the one.
Floyd agrees with Trump that it was just “locker room talk” … and explains how the language Trump used is simply how ‘real men’ speak to each other.
‘Real men speak like, ‘Man, she had a fat ass. You see her ass? I had to squeeze her ass. I had to grab that fat ass.’ Right? So he talking locker room talk.’
‘I’m the man, you know what I’m saying? You know who I am. Yeah, I grabbed her by the p***y. And?’,
It’s refreshing to see a public figure reply honestly and use common sense when asked for their opinion on political issues, especially an athlete like Mayweather who would be well acquainted with the type of locker-room banter used by President Trump in 2005.
Mayweather and President Trump are known to be friendly acquaintances after the undefeated boxing champion visited the then-president elect Nov. 16, eight days after the stunning 2016 election.

In the interview, Mayweather also stated that he was in attendance for President Trump’s inauguration Jan. 20 in Washington, D.C.
“I just wanted to say I did it one time in my life,” Mayweather said of the inauguration. “It didn’t matter who the president was. I just wanted to go to be a part of it, to see how it is.”
President Trump has attended several of Floyd’s fights, including his famous 2015 win against Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas.
