Floyd Sr. on Mayweather's Return, Guerrero-Berto, More

By Chris Robinson

On Thursday evening, I spotted colorful trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. near ringside during the Ray Beltran-Ji-Hoon Kim headlined show at the Mirage Hotel and Casino.

Upon spotting Mayweather, I instantly thought of the latest news surrounding his son Floyd Jr., as it was announced that he is looking to fight in both May and September of 2013.

Asked for his thoughts on his son’s impending return, Floyd Sr. seemed pleased.

“It’s good about my son fighting,” he claimed. “I would rather see him fight more often.”

The two names being mentioned as possible opponents for Mayweather are interim WBC welterweight titlist Robert Guerrero and WBC junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, one of the biggest cash cows in the sport.

Guerrero is coming off of a commanding and sometimes-grueling unanimous decision over former champion Andre Berto last month and Floyd Sr. gave his take on the action.

“I think one thing, I think Berto would have came out better trying not to be Floyd Mayweather Jr.,” stated Floyd Sr. “If he would have fought his own fight, he would have done much better.”

And while Floyd Sr. seemed less than enthused about seeing his son face Guerrero, he seemed to show belief that Alvarez would likely serve as the harder fight.

“Alvarez is a good, tough, young fighter,” Senior noted. “You can’t take nothing away from a fighter like that, because that guy is big. To be honest, that guy has a lot of weight on him. But as far as knowledge goes, I think Lil’ Floyd has the edge there.”

At the drop of a pin, Floyd Sr. slightly changed his tune, pointing to the fact that his son, who turns 36 in February, is no spring chicken anymore.

“My son is getting up in age, man,” said Floyd Sr. “I don’t care who you are or where you come from or who put you here, there’s a time and place.”

In other news, we are presently on the verge of seeing Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez face off yet again, as the two rivals will clash on Saturday night inside of the MGM Grand.

Pacquiao has been linked to Floyd Jr. as a possible opponent for the past three years and the elder Mayweather sees no logic whatsoever in another duel with Marquez.

“I’m going to be honest, I hope this is their last fight,” Floyd Sr. stated. “I think people are tired of seeing the same fight and the same guy getting the decision that don’t deserve all those decisions.”

I don't know if there is any person who hates another person as much as Floyd Sr hates Pacquiao.
