Roach: Floyd Sr. Be Like Ghhh...Ghhh...Ghhh...Get Em!

By Steve Kim

There is no love lost between Freddie Roach and the Mayweather clan. Roach is preparing Manny Pacquiao for his May 2nd showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

"I actually don't like those guys. I've dealt with the Mayweather's for a long, long time in my life," said Roach to BoxingScene.com.

"I've known Floyd since he was five, I think he might be the best one out of the bunch. Roger, me and him hate each other. If he walked in the door, we might get in a fight."

But the noted trainer says that when they face Mayweather he much prefers Floyd Sr. be in the corner than uncle, Roger.

"His dad, his poems are a little bit annoying but I think it's kinda funny to be honest with you,'' Roach admitted.

"But I like the dad in the corner because he is not the best cornerman. Roger's been there 90-percent of he time. Roger's the better cornerman. Roger gets the  message to the fighter better than the dad. The dad stutters so  much that in the corner...I mean...it takes him like three minutes to get one word out......ghhhh, ghhhhh, ghhhh......get em!!! He's so nervous."

"So I think he's going to hurt the corner and I think Mayweather is just going to fight by himself in there anyways because that's what he does. He's a born fighter, he was never taught by anybody. He trains himself and the thing is  - I don't think he can match up with our game plan."

Headline looks like someone was a bit too diligent in quoting Freddie. I wonder why the trashtalk has been so muted? 4-5 years ago they would have been tearing into each other. Instead we're getting the version of Floyd we…

Who cares? Even if Sr didn't stutter you still won't understand half the retarded sh1t that come out his mouth. :rofl:
