BSO- We spoke with Welter’s rep who tells us … after her story attracted national attention, they got a call from Team Mayweather … who offered 2 ringside seats to his upcoming fight against Andre Berto.
We’re told Mayweather is a fan — and wanted to show his support. As for Welter, she’s flattered and we’re told she’s definitely planning on attending.
Oh shit, looks like Floyd Mayweather done messed around and got himself a publicist. Either that, or he listened to the one that he's always had for the first time ever. Whatever the case may be, it appears all you Floyd haters are FUCKED! A socially aware Floyd Mayweather is a dangerous Floyd Mayweather. Sure, he beat up a couple broads, but that's all in the past. Hell, 'Straight Outta Compton' damn near broke the box office and Dr. Dre was a notorious domestic abuser. It's all about the decisions that you make after that shape how we view you. Setting aside front row tickets for the women that bursted through the glass ceiling of the NFL sidelines? That's a huge step in the right direction!
What's more likely? Floyd is a huge fan of a female football coach, or he realizes that women, who undoubtedly hate him, LOVE Jen Welter? Bet you didn't see that one coming, did you ladies? Now you and Floyd have something in common. A mutual 'celebrity' friend if you will. Women love, well, mostly pretend to love, the friends of their friends. Doesn't mean they can't criticize Floyd, but they can't fail to mention that time he bought their girl Jen some front row seats if they do so. Why do we even know the name Jen Welter? Oh, that's right, she just pioneered the advancement of women in professional sports. Well, considering that I doubt that Mayweather and Welter have any real connection, outside of seeing each other on television, then that means Floyd is for the advancement of women in professional sports. His decision to set her up with some luxury seats has done more for the advancement of women than the WNBA! Who knows? Maybe this is just step one. Maybe he's going to donate a bunch of money to the charity of Becky Hammon's choice. Maybe he's set to name his production company after Susan B. Anthony. Maybe he just finds Welter's dominant, cougar-esque qualities oddly attractive. At least in this case we have to question Mayweather's intentions, and that's a lot more than we've ever had to do before.
