Did Floyd Mayweather feature in Family Guy?




Legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather he was never featured in Family Guy. However, the animated series featured a character that fans believe is freely based on ‘Money’.

The family boy was created by multimedia artist Seth MacFarlane in 1999 and enjoys wide critical acclaim. The animated sitcom series is produced by Fuzzy Door Productions and 20th Television.

The character of Floyd Wetherton was introduced to Family Guy in the fifth episode of the ninth season. He appears in several other chapters later in the series.

The chapter is called ‘Honey, You Knock Me Out’, and Lois Griffin, one of the main characters in the animation, begins his career as a professional boxer.

In one of Loisa’s matches against Deirdre Jackson, a violent fictional boxer, the television station broadcasting the event had Wetherton as a color commentator.

However, in keeping with the show’s dark humor, Wetherton is portrayed in a stereotypical way that could offend some martial arts fans and viewers.

According to his description, Floyd Mayweather-the inspired character is a “terribly mutilated ex-fighter” who gives a “barely understandable comment” during the fighting.

Wetherton was introduced as the 23-year-old former heavyweight champion. He also suffers from severe headaches and is married to a Puerto Rican woman.

In addition to the character allegedly based on Floyd Mayweather, Family Guy had boxing legends, Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali.
