Mayweather Sr: Khan and Maidana Are Both Easy Fights

Text by Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

Floyd Mayweather Sr., father and trainer of pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr., expects an easy fight regardless of the opponent for May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Amir Khan and WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana were the two frontrunners to face Mayweather, but now Maidana is likely out of the hunt after Adrien Broner exercised an immediate rematch clause - to get the opportunity to avenge his December loss to the Argentinian puncher.

"Both would be easy. Two easy fights there. Both of them is easy. Maidana might have punching power, but you still can't hit what you can't see and that's what would put Maidana under the tree. Amir Khan has a glass jaw and if you look at him hard enough it will shatter," Mayweather Sr. said.

So then ya it's a go ahead for little Floyd. As usual. Either the washed up, the wet behind the ears still, or someone weight drained. Oh how about someone moving up in weight who isn't a natural welter. Disadvantaged…
