Floyd Mayweather Jr. Yelled at Cheerleader Competition Judges Over His Daughter

"I fund this program!"

Published April 4, 2017

"Money" can't buy everything. Try telling that to Floyd Mayweather Jr., though.

The retired, undefeated boxing legend erupted on Jamz Cheer and Dance competition judges in Irvine, California, on Sunday, yelling at them for placing his 12-year-old daughter, Jirah, second. Mayweather thought his daughter's squad did more than enough to win the top spot in the competition, but judges didn't see it like that at all.

In the footage below, you could see Mayweather barking at the judges, with event announcer Jeff Krapf telling TMZ Sports that the former boxer told them, "I fund this program!"

Krapf added that he thought Mayweather was going to get physical.

"I thought, 'Well, great, here's my big paycheck," Krapf continued. "My payday's coming! But it didn't happen."

Mayweather was eventually pulled to the side by one of the event's execs and it fizzled out from escalating further.

When you win at everything like Floyd did in boxing, we guess Mayweather expects the same from his kids. But sometimes it just doesn't work out like that, champ!
