Floyd Mayweather sr. insists his son will beat Manny Pacquiao – Boxing News
Floyd Mayweather sr., father of Floyd Mayweather jr., wants his son to lock horns with Filipino former WBO champion Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather sr. believes his son can easily beat the Filipino, provided the latter goes through random drug testing.
Upon the release of his son from a Vegas jail, he said, “I'm happy that my son's going to be released and he can get back out here in the ground and do the things that he wants. He wants to promote and fight, and I wish him the best.”
When asked about the possibility of Manny Pacquiao fighting his son Floyd Mayweather, Mayweather sr. iterated, “I REPEAT! I REPEAT! If Pac takes the test, my son will put him to rest! And I'll say this here anyway that there's not a chance in hell anyway
that he can win. Now if you want to start cutting off some of his limbs, that's the only way he (Pacquiao) got a chance.”
Floyd Mayweather jr. released from jail yesterday, Friday. He served two months in Las Vegas’ detention centre for misdemeanour charges against his girlfriend. The WBC welterweight titlist was sentenced to 90-day detention. However, based on his good behaviour
in the detention centre, Floyd got some time off.
As of now, Manny Pacquiao is scheduled to fight on November 10, against an opponent not decided yet. Fans are hoping to see a showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao but chances of the fight happening are rare.
If not Mayweather, Pacquiao will go for a rematch against Bradley, overlooking the offer made by Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez. According to Pacquiao, he ‘has been there and done that’, therefore he sees no point in fighting Marquez for a fourth time.
Floyd Mayweather is an unbeaten fighter. His last match was against Miguel Cotto, which he won. However, Mayweather’s performance was under par, even though he had won. Most analysts believe Mayweather has lost his stint, and that he has become slower than
before. Similarly, even Pacquiao is growing old and he is talking about retirement. This might be the best time for a match between both or it might never happen.
