Floyd Mayweather Sr. says he has some inside sources at Canelo Alvarez’s camp leaking information to him.
Floyd Sr. is back working with his son for the second fight in a row after the two previously had a falling out. Chris Robinson at Hustle Boss caught up with Floyd Sr. in Las Vegas last week, which is when the trainer revealed that he has inside info on his son’s Sept. 14 opponent.
“It’s a bunch of a b.s.,” Mayweather said. “That’s all it is — a bunch of b.s. Because I’m getting a bunch of knowledge myself. I’m getting a whole bunch of knowledge about what’s going on. [Canelo is] telling his trainer what to do. He tells his trainer what to do. His weight is still up there. None of that stuff is true.”
When asked a followup question about the implication that there is a mole in Canelo’s camp feeding information, Floyd gave a cautious answer.
“Some leaking somewhere is all I’m going to say.”
Floyd Sr. also would not give credit to Alvarez for supposedly putting together a good camp.
“I’m not impressed with anybody. You asked what the trainer tell you? His ass is cooked. Roasted.”
Mayweather Sr. has always had a big mouth, so it’s not surprising for him to say he’s not impressed by another fighter. The shock would be if he actually gave someone else credit. But what about his assertion that he has a mole in Canelo’s camp? Is it possible that someone is feeding him information?
That’s very possible. Floyd Sr. isn’t too swift, so if he is getting inside info, it would be just like him to blurt it out publicly to give Alvarez a chance to fix the problem. Could it be that Oscar De La Hoya is updating Floyd? Or would it be someone else? Mayweather has used Oscar’s Golden Boy Promotions for the past several years, so they already have a good relationship — as Floyd Sr. said in the interview. Maybe Oscar is keeping Floyd updated.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KOs) will face Alvarez for the WBC light middleweight title and WBA Super World light middleweight title on Sept. 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Alvarez should present Mayweather’s biggest challenge since Miguel Cotto, but there is a reason Floyd’s undefeated — he’s that good. And if he has inside info, that will make him tougher to beat.
