Mayweather Sr: Beating Rios Don't Get You a Floyd Fight!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Floyd Mayweather Sr., father and trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs), said Manny Pacquiao's dominating victory over Brandon Rios is not enough to earn him the biggest fight in the sport. Pacquiao returns on April 12, while Mayweather is back on May 3. He says Pacquiao looked very good in the contest, last Saturday night in Macau, but attributes the impressive performance to Rios' stylistic flaws. Mayweather Sr. says he expected a lot more from Rios.

"Brandon Rios can't fight and that's my honest opinion, based on what I just saw from him. I don't see no skills, I don't see no knowledge of boxing.  I think Manny looked very, very good against him. Manny moved how he wanted to. He touched him when he wanted to. Manny was doing everything, moving side to side, giving him angles and cracking him," Mayweather Sr. told proboxinginsider.com.

"The dude to me didn't win a round. It was a total shutout. [Pacquiao] could have fought another guy and there might have been a problem, but this guy didn't really hit Manny with anything. Manny ain't ready for [Mayweather]. He wasn't ready for when he was doing his thing and from what I seen the other day - Floyd would do him the way [Pacquiao] did Rios."

"The way [Rios] was running his mouth, I thought he was a bad motherf***er. I wanted to see what the f*** he could do. I thought this motherf***er would really put something down man. This motherf***er started off running with his hands tucked above his head. Come on man, that was a comedy act."

"I don't call that redeeming yourself. I don't believe beating someone like that would get you Floyd. Maybe he could do something like that to fight someone like [Canelo] Alvarez or [Robert] Guerrero. If he whoops one of them, then it's time to get it on. That's what he better do. If he wants to have any chance [of getting Floyd], he better whoop one of them."
