Mayweather Sr. Warns Maidana: Floyd Beats You Easy

By Edward Chaykovsky

Floyd Mayweather Sr., father and trainer of WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., sent a warning that a fight with Marcos Maidana would be "easy." Mayweather is set to return on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The rumored frontrunner is British superstar Amir Khan, but now Maidana has placed himself in the mix with last Saturday's spectacular twelve round decision upset over Adrien Broner to capture the WBA's version of the welterweight crown.

"It’s an easy fight, I’m telling you. It ain’t no different than Khan. He’s easy to hit, Broner hit him easy. Believe me, he is easily hit. He’s a tough guy but there’s too much speed, too much trickery, too much mind over power. I’m just telling you, I don’t see no kind of way in that for him [to win]," Mayweather Sr. told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"Broner was doing everything wrong. I’m the one who taught my son, so I know when I say he did a lot of things wrong. As far as my son, I taught my son, you can see the difference between that and Broner. I’m just trying to tell you right now that if they wanna put that fight together, I’m pretty sure my son wouldn’t mind taking it right after he gets through with Amir Khan, if that’s who he’s gonna fight. I can’t just say who he’s gonna fight right now, but I think my son would do good with Maidana."
