Over the past few days BoxingScene.com has chronicled a war of words between former unified super lightweight champion Amir Khan and Floyd Mayweather Sr. - father and trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The talkative Brit claims that Floyd Sr. admitted that he is the only fighter out there that is capable of beating his son. He went so far as to say that Mayweather Sr. advised his son not to take the fight because he felt Khan would beat him.
Khan and the elder Mayweather recently had a phone conversation where big Floyd threatened to take matters into his own hands and fight Khan himself.
Floyd Sr. recently spoke to BoxingScene.com in a video interview and said that it is true that he does not want his son to fight Khan but for an entirely different reason. He doesn't want to see him benefit monetarily from the big payday that a fight against the sport's biggest pay-per-view star would generate.
"I don't want him to get no payday from my son," Floyd Sr. told BoxingScene.com.
When asked to give a reason why, Mayweather Sr. stated, "He's a f*g. That's why."
Mayweather Jr. is scheduled to return to the ring on September 12th to complete his six fight deal with Showtime. Mayweather recently jokingly said that Andre Berto and Karim Mayfield are in the running to be his opponent.
