Mayweather Sr. says Manny Pacquiao is 'not going to be much of a fight' for Floyd

New, 20 comments

With the fight almost upon us, Floyd Mayweather Sr. has a prediction for just how things are going to go, and it sounds like he's not giving Manny Pacquiao any chance at all.

Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is just a couple days away. The fight has been building for the last couple months (and really for the past few years), but now it's almost upon us. As such, the rhetoric is coming fast and furious from both sides, and most particularly from one side, Team Mayweather. They recently released a Floyd Mayweather T-Shirt emblazoned with the Filipino Flag, and when Floyd Sr was asked about how he thought the fight would go, he was unsparing in his predictions:

"This fight has already been won. We can beat Manny any day, any time, any year, any moment.

"Manny's best performance was when he got knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez."

He also spoke about his son's future boxing career and whether or not he thinks Floyd Jr. Should retire:

"I think it's best for Floyd to choose what he wants to do at the end of the year. I think he should retire, because if he sticks around, somebody is going to get you sooner or later."
