Fresh off pushing his professional fight record to 43-0 with a unanimous decision over Miguel Cotto, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has announced a sneaker design contest in collaboration with MYMAG, an innovative platform that allows celebrities to connect with their fans via personalized magazine. Floyd is inviting designers to submit their most creative pattern or color scheme design for a shoe for the chance to have a pair made and worn by the man himself.
In addition to having their design created and worn by Mayweather, the winning designer will also receive $3000, a copy of MYMAG signed by Floyd, a signed pair of the winning shoes, exposure on Floyd's social media channels and a lifetime subscription to MYMAG. Prizes will also be awarded to a runner-up and people's choice artist.

LMAO!!!! You cant be serious... Did you see Paq face when he faught cotto? Lol he landed way more than 18% for the fight... I hate when people talk and not know shit about boxing...
If Paquiao wouldve fought Cotto at 154 things wouldve been way different my man And everyone that Paquiao has fought in common with Mayweather has been at a lower dehydrated weight and after Mayweather already beat them leaving MP the blueprint. Everyone knows Manny lost that last fight with Marquez and wants no part of Marquez ever again and/or Mayweather. (FACTS!!!!)
Right And he wont take the test for the drugs so Paq fans can stop with the bullshit talk of Flyod being scared.. One dude on here said Mayweather only fight smaller and weaker People and didnt realize that Cotto was 154 and may weather came up to fight him and was still smaller than Cotto... These people kill me with this talk... only Paq is fast but it will go 12 and it will be a split with Mayweather being the Winner... The only person that has the Power to beat Mayweather and the heart is Canelo Alverze... That boy is a beast
pacquiao already said that he is good with the drug test, but mayweather changed his mind about splitting it 50/50, and didn't even want a winner takes all on the pay per view money. that's why mayweather ended up fighting cotto instead.
anyway, who cares about a match that everyone wants to see, but no one will ever see happening?
nice contest though.
Show me where he said he would test and THERE IS NOT ONE FIGHTER THAT WAS A UNDEFEATED CHAMP THAT TAKES A 50/50 spilt with a fighter that has a loss!!!! YOU WOULDNT AND NEITHER WOULD I... THIS IS PRIZE FIGHTING and its about making money 43-0 Pac got a loss so you agree to the term of the UNDISPUTED CHAMPION...
