Floyd "Money" Mayweather post fight interview: "I'm not here to talk about money" - dodges anticipated questions but plugs his sponsors

"During the post-fight interview Mayweather was asked by HBO's Max Kellerman about coming in at 146 pounds, and having to redo his contract. When Mayweather started mentioning his sponsors, Kellerman cut-off Floyd and said 'before you do any commercials- let's not do any commercials,' Mayweather shot back saying 'I got to do my commericals. That's seven figures now, I got to do my commercials. It's my time to shine.' And when Kellerman proceeded to ask Mayweather about the $600,000 penalty he had to pay Marquez for coming in two pounds over the 144 catch-weight, Mayweather refused to comment saying 'I'm not here to talk about money,' which is somewhat ironic because he just brought up money. They went back-and-forth a couple more times until Kellerman brought in Shane Mosley to the picture. And it only went south from there.

A heated exchange began between the two fighters. Both men had to be separated with Floyd screaming at Mosely about respecting him while he's being interviewed. Mosley wasn't having any of that, he was demanding that Floyd give him his shot. Kellerman tried to get in a question about Manny Pacquiao to which Mayweather either dodged, or couldn't hear due to the altercation with Mosley."
