Mayweather squashes beef with Silva

BY foxsports • September 26, 2013

In the aftermath of his record-shattering money haul, boxing champ Floyd Mayweather is in a great mood. That much is a clear after a Wednesday interview with DJ Sway Calloway on SiriusXM Radio.

Mayweather, who’s had an ongoing war of words with former UFC champion Anderson Silva, seemed to call a truce to the action when asked about Silva’s recent comments about the lack of respect between the two sides.

In the leadup to his fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Mayweather downplayed Silva’s accomplishments, saying they didn’t compare to his 45-fight, 17-year undefeated career. In response, Silva called him a “smurf” who talked too much.

With Mayweather’s most recent thoughts supporting Silva now in the public, maybe the two greats can finally get along.
