Mayweather wins fourth ESPY award!

Boxing pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr continues to succeed in the sport, this time winning his fourth ESPY award. The 35-year was crowned the Best Fighter Of The Year 2012, an award he has already won a record four times.

The award is voted by the fans, which shows that although Mayweather is a very controversial figure at times, he is still respected by almost everyone in the world for the amazing things that he has achieved.

"The accolades Floyd receives for his hard work and dedication in the ring speak for themselves," said Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe. "He holds all of the pay-per-view records and is the highest paid athlete in sports today. Now he has another ESPY award to add to his long list of of honours and recognitions. These are just more notches in his future Hall Of Fame career."

This award just adds to another amazingly successful career for Floyd 'Money' Mayweather. He was recently announced as the highest paid athlete in the world on the Forbes Top 100 list, and now he has been announced as the best fighter in the world once again. He was also the most searched athlete on Google in May. The month he defeated pound-for-pound contender Miguel Cotto.

Although 'Pretty Boy' is a confident guy and often claims he is the greatest boxer that ever lived, he does realise that he would not be where he is today without his loyal and devoted fans.

"Floyd has always recognised and thanked his fans for their support during his career. He knows that an athlete has to do his or her job to prepare their best and dedicate their lives to be great. But without the backing and enthusiasm of the fans, the victories would be bitter sweet," Ellerbe continued. "Floyd should be commended for undeniably ability to draw attention to the sport of boxing, as well as his own career, as he has delivered amazing results every time he has stepped in the ring."
