If Floyd Mayweather can’t read or struggles with reading, then he should just admit to it and this story would go away. Charlamagne along with his cohorts, DJ Envy and Angela Yee, took some time to clown Floyd, because of his inability to easily read a 10 second drop.
After 50 Cent made fun of Mayweather not knowing how to read, Charlamagne had a Power 105.1 studio engineer dig up audio of Floyd Mayweather reading an advertorial radio drop. First, Charlamagne read the same drop, himself, and runs through it, like an on-air personality should, within 10-12 seconds, he was done.
Next, they play Floyd’s audio of him reading the drop for almost a minute and a half. He struggled the entire time, before Yee threw the towel in and stopped the tape. It’s funny and sad at the same time.
Unfortunately, Floyd’s reading ability is more advanced than many in his same profession. Boxing is a physical sport which results in being hit in the head multiple times throughout your career. This can cause brain damage, thus processing information at a slower rate.
Floyd should just laugh off the jokes and let it go. It’s a little embarrassing, but not that serious.
Go and get some reading lessons himself, and Floyd could be the poster boy for the reading impaired.
