Roger Mayweather on Adrien Broner: ‘He ain’t no motherf—ing Floyd Mayweather’ (Video)

Roger-MayweatherAdrien Broner openly admits he is trying to model himself after Floyd Mayweather Jr. Like Floyd, Broner tries to be flashy and talks as much trash as possible so people are aware of him and will pay to watch him fight. As we saw from Broner’s loss over the weekend during which he humped Marcos Maidana and gave us a flop for the ages, he is far from being anywhere close to the fighter Mayweather is.

Roger Mayweather, Floyd’s uncle and one of his trainers, made it clear that he is certain Broner will never be Floyd when he was recently asked about the Broner-Maidana fight. Roger’s rant was pretty entertaining, but beware that it contains a lot of salty language.

In Roger’s opinion, people don’t hate on Broner because he talked about stealing someone’s girlfriend or leaked a disgusting sex tape of himself — they hate on him because he can’t live up to the hype.

“The motherf—er wasn’t what he was anyway,” Roger said. “He wasn’t what people thought he was. They thought he was the next Floyd Mayweather. Now he got his ass whooped and people are saying, ‘This motherf—er wasn’t no Floyd.’ Hell no goddamn way he is.”

If you asked Floyd about Broner, he would probably have a lot nicer things to say about him than his uncle did. Broner looks up to Floyd as a brother and mentor and Floyd tweeted support of Broner after he lost to Maidana by unanimous decision. Still, Roger is right. Broner is not and probably never will be Floyd.

Roger Mayweather Thinks Floyd and Manny Pacquiao Will Fight May 5th

While the fake Roger Mayweather was making noise through his phony Twitter account Tuesday, the real Roger Mayweather made some news by saying he thinks the potential Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao fight will happen.

“I think it’s going to happen,” Roger (Floyd’s uncle and trainer) told Boxing Scene. “Any time you have $100 million involved, a fight is going to happen. There are no other opponents. Pacquiao is running out of opponents. I think everyone wants the fight. Pacquiao says he’s going to take a test, so I don’t see why it wouldn’t happen.”

We hadn’t heard much on the progress of the potential fight, so this is a positive sign. The last word was when we suspected Bob Arum was trying to arrange the fight without Golden Boy Promotions being involved.

Floyd has the MGM Grand booked for May 5th, so it makes sense for him to face Manny Pacquiao on that date. Many people think Pacquiao’s poor showing against Juan Manuel Marquez is a strong sign that Floyd will win a fight between the two. While Pacquiao’s struggles against Marquez have no impact on a fight with Floyd, I have felt all along that Mayweather should be favored.

Roger Mayweather also said that one reason Amir Khan lost to Lamont Peterson Saturday is because he wasn’t on the same stuff he usually is. Mayweather says Khan is usually on the same stuff Pacquiao takes.

Here is a full history of the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. negotiations.

Roger Mayweather: Floyd Will Probably Fight by End of Summer

While Manny Pacquiao is fighting Shane Mosley next weekend and already making plans to fight Juan Manuel Marquez, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has remained retired. Floyd however was present ringside for the Victor Ortiz-Andre Berto fight suggesting he was doing some scouting. Making it sound even more likely that Floyd will be returning to the ring is what his uncle Roger Mayweather said in an interview with Da Truth Boxing.

In the interview, which takes place in a casual setting on the couch, Mayweather (who also serves as Floyd’s trainer) says his nephew will likely fight by the end of the summer. He didn’t mention opponents but suggested it would be a matter of money (no surprise for Floyd, of course). Roger said that Floyd plays basketball and is an athlete, so getting into shape shouldn’t be a problem. He also discussed the Mosley-Pacquiao fight and repeated the notion that Mosley should be drug tested like he was for his bout with Floyd. He also questioned Manny Pacquiao being scared of needles by pointing out all the tattoos he has.

The interview features a ton of NSFW language and Roger is less intelligible than Brad Pitt in Snatch, so I won’t bother posting it. If you want to check out the video, head over to our friends at Black Sports Online who brought the video to our attention.
