Floyd Mayweather Sr. fights Robert Guerrero’s father outside gym (Video)

Floyd-Mayweather-Sr-fight-outside-gymFloyd Mayweather Sr. is 61 years old and retired from boxing, but the elder Mayweather proved earlier this week that he has not thrown his last punch. On Wednesday, Mayweather Sr. got into a fight with Ruben Guerrero, the father of professional boxer Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero, outside a boxing gym in Las Vegas.

TMZ reported that both men were at the gym shooting footage for a reality television show, but the argument outside the training center was not scripted. As you can see in the clip above, Mayweather Sr. threw some swings at Guerrero while a bunch of people tried to break the scrum up. It doesn’t appear like anyone landed any solid punches.

Mayweather Jr. fought Robert Guerrero last May and cruised to a relatively easy victory, despite a whole lot of trash talk from Guerrero before the fight. In one press conference leading up to the bout, Ruben went off on Mayweather Jr. and called him a “woman beater” several times. It comes as no surprise that the two families are not fond of one another.

Freddie Roach roasts Floyd Mayweather Sr., says he looks like ‘Predator’

The trash talking regarding Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao doesn’t only go one way.

Floyd has been active on social media the past week talking all kinds of trash. Prior to Christmas, he sent out his “Christmas card” that totally ripped Pacquiao. A few days later, Floyd shared a photo on Twitter of a guy who he said looked like a cross between Pac-Man and Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach:

I have to admit, that guy does look like Roach.

Well Freddie wasn’t about to let Floyd make him look like a dufus without so much as a response. He took a shot at Floyd’s dad and trainer, Floyd Sr., by comparing the man to “Predator”:

Floyd Mayweather Jr. says father used to beat him with belt or extension cord

Floyd Mayweather Sr.Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his father Floyd Mayweather Sr. have very different recollections of the younger Mayweather’s childhood. Mayweather Sr. has been credited with teaching his son the defensive skills he has used to become one of the greatest boxers of all time, but at what cost?

Mayweather Jr’s mother was a drug addict who died from complications associated with AIDS. Floyd’s father went to prison for five years when the welterweight champion was 16. Prior to that, Mayweather Sr. was incredibly hard on Mayweather Jr. and forced him to train from a very young age. During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show Wednesday, Mayweather spoke about his father abusing him.

“My dad was kind of hard on me,” he said. “As a child I didn’t really have a child life. I was jogging with combat boots on and chopping wood at the age of 10.”

Stern asked Mayweather if he ever feels resentful because of the way his father treated him or wonders if he would have been a great fighter without being stripped of his childhood.

Floyd Mayweather Sr. has mole inside Canelo Alvarez’s camp?

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.

Floyd Mayweather Sr.Floyd Sr. was asked about reports that Canelo (42-0-1, 30 KOs) was destroying his sparring partners in camp. Mayweather Sr. trainer laughed off the reports.

“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.

Floyd Mayweather Sr: I’m the reason my son didn’t get hit

Floyd Mayweather Sr.Floyd Mayweather Jr. thoroughly dominated Robert Guerrero on Saturday in Las Vegas to improve to 44-0.

Mayweather was hit a bit in the early rounds, but Guerrero hardly touched him after that. Guerrero landed 113 total punches. The lack of hits Floyd took was a big change from his previous fight when he was belted pretty badly by Miguel Cotto, who landed 75 power shots.

Though I and others believe the difference between the amount of punishment Mayweather took in this fight compared to his last is due to the skill level of his opponents, his father, trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr., believes he is the reason for the change.

Mayweather Sr. has had a tempestuous relationship with his son, but the two reunited for this fight. Mayweather Sr. believes that was the reason his son hardly got hit.

“If you’ve been getting hit all the time, then I come along and now you ain’t getting hit … what’s that telling you? It’s so plain to see Ray Charles can see it!” Mayweather Sr. said at the post-fight news conference.

Mayweather Sr. also expressed regret over his past problems with his son and said he was happy to be working with him again.

“I feel good about me and my son getting back together.”

Mayweather Jr. agreed that his father made a big difference. He also said he was the one who reached out to bring in his father.

“[In] the Miguel Cotto fight, I felt like I got hit with shots I shouldn’t have been hit with. So I had to bring the defense master back — my father,” Mayweather Jr. explained.

Floyd Jr. also credited his father for developing an excellent gameplan.

“My dad said, ‘I’m going to tell you what’s going to get him — the right hand,’ ” Mayweather Jr. explained. “He said, ‘Yes, you can use the jab, but I’ll tell you what’s going to get him — right hands all day.’ So I went out there and executed the gameplan that was given to me.”

Sure enough, Guerrero couldn’t stop Mayweather’s right hand.

Mayweather Jr. says things went really well in his training camp and that he, his father, and his uncle, Roger, all worked well together. The result, no surprise, was an easy win for Floyd Jr.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Taunts Manny Pacquiao with Facebook Posts

This Floyd Mayweather Jr. character is beginning to look worse and worse by the day. We’ve gone over the legal issues he’s been facing lately, and most of the public has turned against him for his refusal to fight Manny Pacquiao. While Pac Man is working on his third fight since he and Money were supposed to meet, Floyd has been doing nothing but getting into trouble and betting on basketball games.

Oh yeah, he’s also been taunting Pacquiao.

Mayweather spent part of his Saturday reminding fight fans that he’s still undefeated while Manny’s record has been thrice blemished. In four separate posts on his Facebook page, he linked to videos of each one of Pacquiao’s losses, and then he topped it off by writing that he was 41-0 and undefeated.

It’s extremely irritating to see Floyd waste his time that way. We all know that he’s undefeated and that Manny has lost. But Pacquiao has been fantastic over the last handful of years, and it’s universally believed that he’s the only fighter who can challenge — and possibly beat — Floyd. If Floyd’s so good and Manny’s so bad, then why won’t he prove it in the ring?

With every fight that passes between the two of them matching up, Floyd looks worse and worse. And you know what? Even if they do eventually meet, a Mayweather win won’t have as much significance as it would have a year and a half ago when this fight was supposed to happen.

Floyd’s facebook postings pointed out by BSO. Here they are:

Floyd Mayweather Sr. Still Hinting He Thinks Manny Pacquiao Is on Something

The news was announced late Tuesday night that Manny Pacquiao’s next fight would be May 7th in the United States at a venue to be determined. The opponents being discussed are Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley, and Andre Berto. Frankly, I speak for all boxing fans when I say I don’t care who he’s fighting if it’s not Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The Pacquiao-Mayweather fight is the ones fans and analysts have wanted to see for the past few years. Floyd has said he has nothing to gain by fighting Pacquiao, and the negotiations become strained when they talk about drug testing. Floyd Mayweather Sr. also hasn’t helped matters suggesting Manny is on something and calling him out with slurs. He continued the same behavior in a recent interview with Fight Hype, hinting he still believes Pacquiao is on something (go to 1:40 mark):

He says that Pacquiao can’t whip his son, but he doesn’t want Floyd to fight Pacquiao because he has his own reasons. That’s contradictory, no? If Pacquiao can’t whip his son, then why would he be afraid of the fight? There really isn’t a reason, unless he’s still hinting he thinks Pacquiao is on something, right?
