Sifu Lee on Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mayweather (related article) is a great undefeated Boxer with over 40 wins in a row! That is amazing. If Bruce was a Boxer, he would box like Mayweather & Ali, if I was a Boxer I would Box like that too, utilizing grace, speed, talent & skill.  To dance around the opponent, not fight in anger & brute force.  But still, even though Mayweather is a great Boxer who is undefeated he does not inspire me, that’s all he is, just a Boxer, nothing more. Bruce & Ali were not just Fighters. They took their talents outside of their craft & inspired change.

I am not inspired by Fighters or Artists who only fight for the money & nothing more. You see Ali & John Lennon stood up against the War; they inspired people to do the right thing against authority. Bruce stood up against racial discrimination; he inspired people to do the right thing against authority. Now these Fighters nowadays, they stand for nothing, all they want to do is make money from Fighting. Someone can win 100 fights in a row & it still will not impress me if he does not seek to make this world a better place.
