Jamie Foxx Goes ‘Off Script’ During Mayweather-Pacquiao National Anthem (Some Are Simply Saying He Butchered It); Decide for Yourself — Here’s the Clip

May 4, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Much of the buzz after Saturday’s Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao “Fight of the Century” has focused not on the fight but on Jamie Foxx’s delivery of the National Anthem — with many on social media saying Foxx butchered the song.

Others have said, more kindly, that Foxx just went a little off script.

Decide for yourself — here’s the clip:


  1. Disgraceful that the fighter nor his entourage didn’t remove their hats.. The song was actually not that bad compared to some I have heard….

  2. It was a huge event – a huge pro fight – that had been well over-hyped…for months. I feel Jamie Foxx calmed things down and really brought a touch of class with his respectful and terrific interpretation of the National Anthem.
