Mayweather Sr, who also had a spell training Ricky Hatton told Las Vegas Review Journal: “Canelo, he ain’t no problem.
“My son was sharp when he fought Robert Guerrero and he’s sharper for this fight.
“How’s Canelo going to beat my son? Floyd’s faster. Floyd’s smarter. Floyd’s more experienced and in tremendous condition.
“So how’s Canelo gonna beat him.? Canelo’s gonna wind up like a sparring partner.”
