Mayweather Sr: Floyd Beats The Dog Sh*t Out of Chavez!

By Chris Robinson

While covering the Cornelius Bundrage-Cory Spinks rematch this past weekend in Indio, California, I crossed paths with the one and only Floyd Mayweather Sr. inside of the Fantasy Springs Casino and Resort.

Not always one to be in a talkative mood, Floyd was kind enough to open up on a few topics taking place in the sport during out brief dialogue.

At the moment, Mayweather’s son Floyd Jr., the man regarded as the best fighter in boxing, is currently a month into a 90-day jail sentence stemming from a September 2010 domestic violence case. Floyd Jr. very well may be 36 years old the next time he competes as a prizefighter yet his father still sees him being successful once he gets back to business.

“He’s going to be the same person that he is,” Floyd Sr. told me. “I’m not saying that he can’t pick things up, but right now he’s at the age where you’ve got to fight smart, technically smart, to win. I think he’s going to fight smart and intelligent like he always has and continue to win.”

Senior was then asked for his take on the September 15th bout for middleweight bragging rights between WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Argentina’s Sergio Martinez, but the prediction he gave wasn’t exactly one I was expecting.

“I tell you the truth, these guys might be bigger than Floyd and all that stuff, but Floyd will whoop the sh*t out of him,” Floyd Sr. claimed. “He will beat the dog sh*t out of Cesar Chavez. He’d knock his *ss out.”

In a video I captured shortly after Tim Bradley’s upset split-decision over Manny Pacquiao on June 9th in Las Vegas, Mayweather could be found disagreeing with the decision, stating ‘Pacquiao did win the fight’. An ardent critic of Manny over the past few years, it was surprising to hear Floyd Sr. give him such credit but weeks later and he seems to be backpedaling on his statements.

“What the hell, I was just telling the people that even though I said Pacquiao might have won the fight, what’s the big deal about it? Because everybody’s trying to get into it, the government’s trying to get into it. What is that all about?” Floyd Sr. chimed when asked of the controversy surrounding the fight, which has seen Top Rank promoter Bob Arum express his desire for an investigation into the judging of the bout.

Another reason why Mayweather Sr. sees no need for such actions is because he feels that Pacquiao was simply getting a taste of his own medicine, pointing to the Filipino star’s hotly-contested majority-decision victory over Juan Manuel Marquez one fight prior this past November.

“I felt Marquez beat Pacquiao clear,” Floyd Sr. explained. “They took the fight from him. So what is everybody so upset about a fight being taken from Pacquiao? This aint the first time he lost.”

Turning his attention back to his son, Senior showed some compassion and admitted that he will be paying Lil’ Floyd a visit despite their often rocky relationship.

“I’m going to visit my son,” said Mayweather. “That’s still my son at the end of the day. I’m not no vicious, brutal father as he claims that I am. Those are his words, [that is] not my reaction. I’m planning on seeing my son.”
