Photo: Floyd Mayweather Jr. Reunites With Dad For May 4

WBC welterweight king Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced on the social networks that he officially reunited with his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr. Big Floyd will train his son for the upcoming title defense on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Floyd Sr. trained his son in the early part of his career - until the two of them had a falling out and then uncle Roger Mayweather took over. Roger has been dealing with health issues for the last few months and Floyd Sr. has stepped in as head trainer. Over the last few years Floyd Sr. has trained a number of top fighters - including Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Chad Dawson.

The May 4th opponent is still unknown. Robert Guerrero is viewed by insiders as the frontrunner, despite Floyd Jr. naming IBF champion Devon Alexander as the frontrunner last week.

Mayweather Jr. wrote - "Me & my trainer (my dad) back working together getting ready for May 4th."

the reason why Floyd is having his dad train him is because Floyd is mad at Roger for saying the fight against Pac and JMM will happen.
