KNBR Morning host, Gary Radnich, was talking about the Floyd Mayweather -Manny Pacquiao fight Monday Morning when the conversation turned to Mayweather's off-ring history of beating up women, including beating up the mother of his three children
Radnich couldn't help himself --he began to double down on Floyd. Said Radnich, (paraphrasing) "You know, if you grow up in an environment like his (Mayweather) you might understand his actions. I'm not saying what he did is right, but he's helped some guys. Helped some guys who were on drugs and so..."
Sports Update anchor, Kate Scott, repeated to Radnich that Mayweather beat up THE MOTHER OF HIS THREE CHILDREN right smack IN FRONT OF HIS KIDS, no excuses allowed. Radnich ignored that point of course which is SOP for Radnich who, when confronted with such facts looks the other way and can't answer back a legitimate point.
Nobody denies boxing has loads of guys who have checkered pasts and have done things along the lines of Mayweather's abuse. It's just that Mayweather's repeated history of domestic violence coincided with his bout being labeled the Fight of the Century. In addition the news and attention on Saturday night's event in Las Vegas received quite a bit of attention across the entire news and sports media domain.
Apparently, that's OK for Radnich.
