Trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. says his relationship with brother Roger is not necessarily warm and friendly. WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. brought his father back as the head trainer, and the two of them are preparing for the May 4th mandatory encounter with Robert Guerrero at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather Sr. and his son have had a turbulent relationship for many few years. During those years, Roger has served as the head trainer, but his recent health issues played a big role in the overall decision of having his brother return to the corner. Both brothers are expected to work Floyd's corner on the night of the fight.

During the media day on Wednesday at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, the two brothers barely exchanged words and often argued with reporters as to which of them was the "head trainer." For the record, in a recent video interview on BoxingScene.com, Mayweather Jr. said his father was the head trainer and overseeing the camp.

"Me and Roger, we can all be cool. As long as people want to be cool and family, then that's what we're going to be. And if they don't want to be that way, then we're not going to be that way. I'm not going to be family with another person here, who is doing something else..going against the grain, I'm not going for it and I'm not going to take it," Mayweather Sr. said.

"[The family atmosphere in camp between me and Roger has been] so-so. The only thing I'm saying is this, sometimes he comes to gym and we don't speak. I'll sit right there and he walks right past me. We're family man, speak. That's what I do. When I come in, I got manners and very good manners. When someone comes by you and don't speak...I mean come on man. It ain't cool, whether it's family or it just be another person."

At the end of the day, Mayweather Sr. notes that everyone is on the same page when it comes to the unified goal of achieving victory on May 4th.

"I'm pretty sure that's the case and that's the main thing that we're here for anyway, to make sure my son wins these next six fights [in his Showtime deal]," Mayweather Sr. said.

His pride probably doesn't allow him to admit it but Roger is visibly slowing down. Floyd was right to bring in extra help.

I dont know how sick Roger is but I dont think Floyd would do this if he was alright. Diabetes is no joke at certain stages. Anyway if they fight in the corner I dont think itll affect Floyd. He knows what he has to do.

If Roger and Floyd Sr. got along it would be a great team

I wonder what the deal is, Roger Mayweather never likes to say anything negative or positive about hsi brother, he's been asked questions about it and he never answers, I wonder why the reason is, anyways tho Roger Mayweather is a bad ass and Floyd Sr. taught Jr. everything from what I hear, I li...

I'd be pissed too, not only has Roger been replaced but his brother is basically telling people that he's not fit to be a trainer.
