Mayweather Sr. - Pacquiao is Scared of Floyd, Cotto is Not

By Rick Reeno

Floyd Mayweather Sr., the father and former trainer of WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs), spoke to BoxingScene.com about his son's upcoming fight with WBA junior middleweight king Miguel Cotto (37-0, 32KOs), which takes place on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Cotto refused to accept Manny Pacquiao's demand for a "welterweight rematch" on June 9. Pacquiao demanded a contract weight of 147, while Cotto would not go a pound under 150-pounds. With Mayweather willing to face Cotto at the full junior middleweight limit of 154, it was easy for the Puerto Rican superstar to embrace the alternative direction.

Floyd Sr. doesn't expect a mismatch, but he does expect his son to beat Cotto - and he doesn't believe the weight will be a factor.

"I think it's going to be a good fight. I don't think the weight is going to be an issue [for Mayweather]. You see Pacquiao is a small guy, so he's going to try to get [Cotto] to come down as much as possible. In terms of skill, I have to go with my son to beat Cotto, but anything can happen in that fight. Here is the thing about Pacquiao, he's scared. Cotto is not. That whole thing, with [Floyd Jr. rejecting] the 50-50 [revenue split], was just their excuse to avoid the fight. Pacquiao knows....the day he fights Floyd is the day his career is over. Once he takes the test, he will be put to rest," Mayweather Sr. told BoxingScene.com.

I have steered away from floyd vs. pac issue.. Haven't really read much about it lately... Looking and reading it about it now, it seems like the ball hasn't left floyd's court from where I left of.. At least from the perspective of popular opinion..
