BoxingScene.com recently caught up with Roger Mayweather, uncle and trainer of WBC/WBA welterweight and junior middleweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26KOs). Roger gave us his thoughts on potential showdowns for his nephew in 2015.
"He's going to get his ass whooped. He is going to get hit by everything, sh*t. That is the fight thought that is going to be big because it will be right here in Las Vegas," Roger said in regards to a potential fight against rival Manny Pacquiao, who holds the WBO welterweight crown.
Roger also said that Amir Khan (30-3, 19KOs) looked great against Devon Alexander this month but that people shouldn't expect the British star to be able to perform in the same manner against Floyd.
"Amir Khan had a good fight. He can fight but he can't do (what he did against Alexander) against Floyd. He's a good fighter but it's different between fighting somebody else and fighting Floyd," Mayweather told BoxingScene.com
