The Mayweather family is celebrating the New Year with that special kind of the love. For the last few years, trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr., and pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., have carried on a public feud in the media and on television. The ill feelings between father and son were the main focus of HBO's De La Hoya-Mayweather 24/7 mini-series.

In a recent interview with Percy Crawford of FightHype, Mayweather Sr. blasted his son over a possible move to mixed-martial-arts. Several weeks ago, Floyd Jr. met with Mark Cuban of HDNet Fights, discussing a possible debut in MMA. Several key figures in boxing and MMA have spoken out against the move.

Mayweather says that his son will end up like former champion Vince Phillips, who took a beating in the MMA ranks.

"He needs to leave that sh*t alone. Hes going to get the same f*cking thing Vince Phillips got; leg broke, arm broke or whatever. Vince Phillips got his arm broke. You cant mess with thatthats what they do. You cant beat nobody at their own game," Mayweather Sr. said. "All of this he talking about right now, this martial arts sh*t, Im telling you, he about to get broke the f*ck up right now. Im telling you, he could forget all of that stuff being cute and how you supposed to hit somebody with a check hook. Man, them motherf*ckers going to take that check hook motherf*cker and squeeze your guts out."

Forget a possible retirement. According to Floyd Sr., his son will definitely retire after testing the MMA waters. He doesn't feel that any of Floyd's skills as a boxer will help him in the world of MMA.

"He aint got to worry about retiring. When they get through with his ass, he will be retired. He will be retired f*cking with them motherf*ckers. They would love to fight him. This aint no f*cking boxing; aint none of these motherf*ckers scared of his ass. Ill fight one of them motherf*ckers if they just want to throw their guards up. Im old and Ill beat they ass, but when they start talking about that going to the ground, elbows and knees and all of that, man f*ck that sh*t. I aint about to go in there. Them motherf*ckers dangerous man. One thing about it, them guys can take a f*cking punch man. Those guys will laugh at Lil Floyd when he hit them."
