Floyd Mayweather: Displeased with Dancing with the Stars Judges

at .

Floyd Mayweather is a boxer. Therfore, he's used to not being happy with the opinions of judges.

And, apparently, this viewpoint carries over the reality TV. The Dancing with the Stars contestant is angry over the recent scores he's received.

"I can work hard. I can nail the routine with the perfect ten but I already understand I'm going to continue to get low scores because they already got their mind made up - they judge me from my boxing," an emotional Mayweather told People magazine after landing in the bottom two on Tuesday night's results show. "They should be judging me for how I dance."

But is that really the problem here?

With 18 out of 30 the first week, and 21 out of 30 the next two competitions, and mostly positive comments from the judges, is it possible Mayweather is simply having trouble connecting with the fans?

Fortunately, his partner Karina Smirnoff remains positive, saying:

"Obviously, we're going to try our best and make sure the choreography's exciting … because, at the end of the day, we're doing it for the fans and we're doing it because we want to have fun, and hopefully we'll get the judges on our side sooner rather than later."

Mayweather, though, insists that the judges "will never be on [their] side, adding, "it is what it is."

"I want us to get treated fair because we're working hard also," says Mayweather. "So if I'm only dancing at a level of 18 or 21 let me know, or am I really dancing at 25 or 26?"
