Many of you who watch the Mayweather- Pacquiao this past Saturday night were left wondering why the Mexican national anthem was sung before the fight began, even though neither of the fighters was born in Mexico. The ring announcer stated that the reason for the singing of the Mexican national anthem was because “Cinco de Mayo” was just around the corner, but I like you, I think that is a pretty lame excuse.
It was obvious that there was a huge pro-Mexican influence behind the fight. The Mexican-brewed beer Tecate, was announced as being the sponsor of the fight, and the company’s name and logo could be seen littered all over the actual ring.
All that was missing were crooning Mariachis wearing matching Tecate beer costumes.
But now it is being learned that Mayweather Jr, born Floyd Joy Sinclair, may have “imposed” the singing of the Mexican National anthem as being one of the conditions for signing the deal with Team Pacquiao, because the American-born fighter is a reported to be a dual citizen of Mexico and the U.S.
If this really is the case, then Mayweather would have had to taken it upon himself to file for dual citizenship as an adult.
According to bio.com and, there is no mention of any Mexican ties to Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Like I said before, it is a matter of time before the U.S.A. will be known as the United States of Amigo.
