Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. took some shots at new Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. took some shots at new Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin via Twitter, saying the guard was receiving more credit than deserved for his recent strong play because of his race.

Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise.

Mayweather is not one to shy away from controversy. He has frequently shared similar words about fellow boxer Manny Pacquiao.

I agree with Mayweather. Its all race hype and everyone knows it but will not admit it…lol
