As he gears up to fight Timothy Bradley he took his press conference meeting to make the remarks. He said that animals seemed to be able to distinguish male and female. They do not mate male to male or female to female, and if humans feel it is ok, then they are worse than the animals.
"The woman was made for man, and man was made for the woman. It's common sense. Will you see any animals where male is to male and female is to female? The animals are better. They know how to distinguish, male or female," said the boxer. "If we approve male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals,"
His comments were not taken lightly by the LGBT community and many accused him of attention seeking. Even his country people thought his comments were uncalled for. Many took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
The boxer has done a lot both for his country and his nation. But as he gears up to a political career, he may have dealt himself a first round knockout. Social media went into a frenzy as people described him as ignorant and out of touch with humanity.
