But it takes a good team. Phil Jackson and the (Los Angeles) Lakers put together a good team, that's why they're world champions," he said.Mayweather has had his share of problems outside the ring, though. He was charged with domestic battery after a December confrontation with the mother of three of his children and he is facing charges in a bar fight in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich.At a news conference promoting his fight with Corley, Mayweather said Corley can't beat him."I got a granite chin," he said. "He could bring an 'A' game, but I'm still going to win."Corley, a 29-year-old lefthander from Washington, D.C., who lost his title to Zab Judah in his last bout, said Mayweather doesn't know what it's like to get hit by a 140-pounder.The weight difference will be a big one, he says.Corley (28-2-1) plans to go after Mayweather from the opening bell."I'm expecting him to try to impose his will on me," Corley said.

He hasn't been in there with a true junior welterweight like me. He's fought 130 pounders."
