Mayweather Sr. Not in Favor of Martinez-Floyd Jr. Clash

By Dennis "dSource" Guillermo

Last weekend Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez stamped his class for the whole world to see at the expense of the young Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. in a one-sided boxing clinic. Martinez is considered as the best pound-for-pound fighter by most boxing experts, next to Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

Many fancy a Martinez-Mayweather match-up at middleweight, but if one were to ask Mayweather's former trainer and estranged father Floyd Mayweather, Sr., he doesn't want any part of it for his son.

"Personally, when people talk about (Sergio) Martinez fighting him (Floyd Mayweather, Jr.)... I'm not saying my son can't whup him, because I've seen my son box big cruiserweights before in the gym, but when you got to put smaller gloves and stuff, you know, I don't think it's a good idea," Floyd, Sr. told me in Las Vegas when I asked him about the subject.

"He's (Floyd Jr.) still fighting outside his weight class by fighting at 47 (welterweight), because really, Floyd can make 140. So really, to be honest, he shouldn't fight anybody much bigger than that. He doesn't need to fight jr. middleweights," the former boxer added.

Still looking out for his son despite their differences, the older Mayweather wants his son to close out his career on top without enduring any serious physical damage.

"I don't think he should just be fighting guys, just because," he said. "It's not safe. He's done enough already. There ain't nothing he got to prove."

Whatever happens, Floyd, Sr. wishes his son well, and expressed his love for his junior.

 "Whatever happened with me and him, If I can be the type of guy, that a guy here on the streets can kill me, see now, I've been shot in the leg and everything, and I forgave guys who did things like that, then I can forgive my son, and that's my blood," Mayweather he said, and continued, "whatever it is that we went through, man, I'm pretty sure it can be worked out. That's my son, and I'm going to be his father forever. I don't know what else to tell you other than that's my son and I love him, and I'm pretty sure he got some love in him for me too."

[QUOTE=hugh grant;12533836]Now why on Gods earth should Pac fight Sergio? In five years pac has had 9 fights and Floyid has had 2 or 3 fights. Now you also want Pac to fit Sergio in as well his busy diary.…
