Jamie Foxx hit the stage May 2,2015 to open the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight with the National Anthem but his version seemed a bit over the top.
Foxx recently spoke about his epic anthem fail and explains how, after hearing internet reports “clowning” his singing, he watched a video of the broadcast and admits it was “off.”
