Can we separate Mayweather and McGregor from the abuse and racism?

Since the hype arounf 'The Money Fight, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have shot into the spotlight and lots has been written and said about the two.

But both men have categorically denied allegations of abuse and racism.

Mayweather, a repeat abuser of women, has been implicated in several cases of assault against five different women.

McGregor has been confronted for using racial insults against Mayweather, such as telling him to “dance for me, boy,”

He, however, insists that he cannot be racist because he’s “black from the belly button down.”

Eusebius McKaiser takes a look at the bigotry and abuse of sportsmen, as well as the support they consistently garner despite their violent nature.

Is it possible to compartmentalise the life of brilliant people? Can you say I really love Eusebius and his talk show, it's a pity that he has got these flaws, but I don't think about the flaws when I tune in?

Eusebius McKaiser, 702/CapeTalk anchor

Pete, 702 caller
