Floyd Mayweather’s Gold Medal Robbery & Its Aftermath.



Floyd Mayweather is arguably one of the greatest boxers of all time, finishing his career with a 49-0 record. Before there was “Money” Mayweather, he was a flashy teenager on the verge of the ultimate amateur credential. A chance to win an Olympic gold medal at the summer games in 1996 held in Atlanta, Georgia. It didn’t happen. Mayweather wound up losing in the semifinal match to Bulgarian veteran Serafim Todorov, who was awarded a controversial 10-9 decision. Many say that loss motivated Mayweather and started him on the path to becoming the unbeaten fighter he is today. Whatever the case, he hasn’t lost a fight since.
