HBO's award-winning franchise "24/7" returned tonight with the premiere of "24/7 Mayweather/Ortiz", the all-access reality series following undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather and WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz as they prepare for their September 17 showdown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. For fans that were awaiting the return of Floyd Mayweather and his larger-than-life personality, Episode 1 did not disappoint. "Come September 17th, I'm cashing out on another stupid payday," Mayweather would comment, making it clear that Ortiz will be number 42 on his undefeated record. Check out what else Floyd Mayweather had to say in episode 1 of 24/7 Mayweather/Ortiz.

On his career...

"What motivates me is putting the finishing touches on my legacy."

"What got me to this point of being 41-0? Belief!"

"No athelete works harder than me! Fuck fighters. No athlete works harder than me! We on 24/7 right now. You tell me one athtlete right now that's been dominating the game for 16 years straight without a loss! Tell me one! Tell me just one!"

On his team...

"I'm just happy that camp has started back. I'm happy that 50 [Cent] is part of the Money Team. It's not really just Team Mayweather; it's the Money Team."

"It's so many people on this staff and on this team, I don't even know everybody's name, first and last name."

"You know, without my uncle Roger, without my, you know, my father Floyd Mayweather, I wouldn't be where I'm at today because it all started with both. My dad started me off and left my life at the age of 16. Roger came into my life and he worked with me from 17 years old, you know, until 34, so Roger has worked with me longer, but it all started with my father."

On his legal cases...

"As far as with the cases, I'm like, my mentality is like it's always going to be, fuck it! It's going to be what it's going to be."

"If I'm innocent, leave me alone. If I'm guilty, do what you gotta do!"

"It's lies. Lies, period."

"Once all is said and done, it's bullshit, so what you do is go get the best team you can get. You go get the best team money can buy."

"Have I paid a lot of money on lawyer's fees? Absolutely! Millions! But it comes with the territory. People money-hungry, what else can I say? That's what's been going on the last 15 months."

Comments directed towards his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., during a heated argument...

"Our training camp is fine. We undefeated, and we been undefeated and we gonna stay undefeated. Our training camp is okay!"

"You can't train nobody when you locked up!"

"(Pointing to Roger Mayweather) This is my trainer right here! This is my trainer right here!"

"Jealousy don't get you nowhere. Jealousy don't get you nowhere!"

"(Pointing to Roger Mayweather again) This is the best trainer right here. Hands down, the best trainer right here."

"Tell me what champ you got right now! Tell me what champ you got right now! Okay, you don't got none! Don't nobody want to be with you. De La Hoya left you. De La Hoya don't want to be with you. Hatton don't want to be with you. Don't no fighter want to be with you. When you got De La Hoya, he was champion. When you got to us, we was already 15 or 14 fights...Roger's my trainer. Roger made me."

"We don't want nobody in the way while we working. Get out of our way! You in our way! This is our gym, get out of our way!"

"Nobody asked you to come here!"

"You couldn't fight worth shit! You weren't nothing but a motherfuckin' cab driver."

"You wasn't shit as a motherfuckin fighter!"

"Roger Mayweather made the Mayweather name and I took it to the next level, because when it's all said and done, there's only two motherfuckin Mayweathers that count; Roger Mayweather and Floyd Mayweather. And motherfucker, I'm not no junior!"

On his fight with Victor Ortiz....

"Come September 17th, I'm cashing out on another stupid payday."
