The Floyd Mayweather Sr. effect
By Jose Espinoza: Recently Floyd Mayweather Sr. has been hinting on strategy that he is developing for his son to utilize in his bout against Manny Pacquiao.
The former boxer and current trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr. has revealed that they plan to attack Pacquiao on the body. In a recent interview to theboxingvoice.com, Mayweather Sr. mentioned: “I ain’t gonna say where we gonna hit Pacquiao at but wherever he hit him, we’re planning on doing great bodily harm.”
In addition, the controversial trainer added: “He’s so damn short, you ain’t never seen nobody go downstairs and hit him in the body either. But see, it’s time for us to change things… Lookie here, man, he don’t ever move his head… Floyd’s going to make him look like a baby. Believe me!”
In fact Mayweather Sr. is predicting an easy outing for his son. “He (referring to Pacquiao) gonna get hit with some real good things… And he might retreat. When I say ‘retreat,’ he might take a knee and say ‘I don’t want no mo’.”
This is not the first time Mayweather Sr. has stated that he is not impressed by Pacquiao. More than once he referenced how easily his son was able to handle Juan Manuel Marquez while Pacquiao was knocked down by the Mexican fighter in their last encounter.
In a recent interview with fighthype, Mayweather Sr. mentioned that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Marcos Maidana are better opponents for Floyd than Pacquiao. In that same interview he stated: “…put Maidana and Pacquiao in the ring together and see what happens. Maidana is going to rape him.”
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is undefeated in 47 professional fights while Manny Pacquiao has 57 wins with 5 losses and 2 draws. During an interview with Boxing Insider magazine, Mayweather Sr. was asked if there would be a rematch. He responded: “I don’t think people want to see a rematch. The can of whooping that Floyd will give, there will not be a rematch.”
As a side note, the referee who will be in charge of the main event on May 2nd will earn $10,000. The short list to go down in the history books as the referee for this much anticipated bout includes Kenny Bayless and Tony Weeks.
