It can be very hard keeping up with Floyd Mayweather Sr. during interviews, as the trainer and former fighter has a colorful personality that seems to run a hundred miles a minute. Add into it a stubborn nature for all things he believes are just and a brazen demeanor and the art of conducting a one on one with Senior is always a ride all its own.

On Sunday afternoon, Floyd Sr. and I discussed Amir Khan’s recent upset defeat to brave challenger-turned-champion Lamont Peterson and what the result means for both men. Floyd was animated as ever, questioning the game plan that Khan’s trainer Freddie Roach had in place while also weighing in on the possibility of a rematch as well as pointing out that Khan had approached him in the past as the British star was inquiring about his services.
 
But as our talk rolled on the dialogue extended much farther than just the Khan-Peterson melee, as Floyd touched on his still-estranged relationship with his son Floyd Mayweather Jr., and also gave his take on last month’s Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez trilogy bout and the possibility of a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight ever happening.
 
Read on for bonus quotes from Floyd Sr. that were left on the cutting room floor from our last article…

No conversation with Floyd Jr…
“We aint got no conversation. Don’t get me wrong, my son, it’s no different than anybody else. He did a tremendous job under my tutelage. He’s been with Roger for five years but I already taught him how to fight. All Roger is is a maintenance man. Look here man, he still my son. I still love him. But the way he carries on, hey man, he has no respect for me and let it be that way.”

The possibility of Pacquiao-Mayweather…
“I think the fight is never going to happen. I see them trying to get it together now. I guess they want to get it together now because Manny Pacquiao just showed his a**. Aint no way in hell he whoop Lil’ Floyd. No way on whatever part of earth, Mars, Venus, whatever, aint no way that he whoop Floyd. No way.”

Thoughts on Floyd’s May 5th return…
“I’m going to tell you like this right here man. When I’m not in the picture, he can do what he chooses to do. Whatever he feel like or who he wants to fight. Hey, I aint going nothing to do with that. But I will tell you this right, there’s no way in hell Pacquiao can beat Floyd. You see how Pacquiao fought with Marquez? You know he lost that fight.”

The state of boxing…
“The sport is going bad because there’s people, they’re using, the things they have going, boxing is going bad because of that. Because they are doing the same things that MMA fighters are doing. Fighters are doing the same damn thing now. And like that thing that my son’s got, like taking the Olympic tests, hell, if you don’t take the Olympic test you’re going to get your a** whooped. Whoever you is. Whether you are champion or not champion. If you don’t take the test you’re going to get you’re a** tore up, that’s all I got to tell you.”

Floyd’s knockout of Victor Ortiz on September 17th…
“I’m going to be honest with you, I think the fight was fair, because I think when the referee tells you ‘Protect yourself at all times’, and he didn’t do that. [Ortiz] didn’t protect himself. When the referee tells you that you can go, it’s time to go. And if you aint ready to go when the referee tells you it’s time to go, and somebody hits you, that’s on you. He told you ‘Protect yourself at all times’. He didn’t say ‘Wait until I’m ready’. It don’t go that way.”
 
That’s still my son…
“That’s still my son. I still love my son. My blood still runs through his body, and I still love my son. That’s my son. My blood run through him. That’s my son and I love my son. We’ve got our differences and it’s bad for us to have differences like we’ve had them, but it happens. It happened with people today in the boxing game and it happens with people around the world. I would rather much have a bond with my son because that’s my son.”
