Floyd Mayweather Sr: “I think Pacquiao should take that fight with my son and delete Bob Arum out of the situation!”

35 Submitted by on Mon, 10 February 2014, 00:25

The growing thought among boxing fans is that the only way we will see a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight is if Pacquiao himself decides to leave his long time promoter Bob Arum, as Mayweather who was once promoted by Top Rank still harbors bad feelings about his past working relationship with Arum’s promotional company. This feeling is also shared by the lawyer of Pacquiao, Franklin Gacal, who has suggested that Arum should step aside to make what could be the richest fight in boxing history. Pacquiao recently agreed to fight Timothy Bradley in a rematch, but unlike his opponent, Pacquiao did not choose to sign an extension with Top Rank, which could see him become a promotional free agent by the end of the year.

In the third and final part in my exclusive interview with trainer, Floyd Joy Mayweather Sr, I get his thoughts on the news that Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, has been named Trainer of the Year by the boxing writers association for the 6th time, and why he thinks Roach won the award again.

I also get Mayweather’s views on the promotional situation of Pacquiao and if he thinks a move away from Bob Arum might lead to a Mayweather-Pacquiao bout. In closing, Senior talks about 2014 and what fans can expect from him this new year. Here is what Floyd Mayweather Sr. had to say.

Jenna J: The fans of our show named you trainer of the year for 2013, but the boxing writers association named Freddie Roach the trainer of the year for the 6th time. What do you think about that?

Floyd Mayweather Sr: It ain’t nothing but a bunch of bullshit! Everybody knows that. Everybody knows Freddie can’t out train me by no means, and how does this guy win it and his fighter got knocked damn cold. Pacquiao got knocked out frozen cold. How in the world are you gonna say he gets trainer of the year again?

As good as my son fought with me. Hey, the war will go to me anyway, I don’t care anyways. I’m gonna tell you right here, they’re giving him the award because they’re feeling sorry for him. They’re feeling sorry for him, that’s why they’re giving him the award. They ain’t giving him the award for nothing else, it’s only because the people’s sorrow they’re feeling for Freddie Roach.

That’s why they are doing what they are doing. It don’t make no difference anyways because people are looking at that and people don’t even know what these accolades are for, all we know is that Freddie is getting them, that’s all we know. None of that stuff is fair, it don’t make no difference. Freddie Roach lost a few other fights, how in the world….well it is what it is.

Jenna: If you could talk to Manny Pacquiao and give him any sort of advise for what’s left of his career–some people say he should leave Bob Arum–what kind of advise would you give to Pacquiao?

Mayweather Sr: Well, I’m gonna tell you this right here; Oscar De La Hoya left Bob Arum, my son left Bob Arum, these were the biggest fighters in the world at the time they left Bob Arum, and they are some of the biggest fighters still today. I think if Pacquiao had any sense, I think he would jump on the same wagon and get rolling. Don’t get me wrong, by no means necessary, I don’t have no problems with Bob Arum.

Bob Arum has been good to me at times when my son was working with him, but it is what it is. Even though he was nice to me, he was taking from my son, so I can’t agree with that either. It is what it is and like I said, I’m not gonna hold nobody up that’s doing anything wrong to any family member or friend of mine, I’m not gonna go along with it.

Jenna: If Manny Pacquiao left Bob Arum, do you think that would make the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight?

Mayweather Sr: Well it ain’t that. Floyd is not fighting Pacquiao right now cause right now Pacquiao needs money and Floyd has offered him 60-40 split and Pacquiao said no, he’s talking about 50-50. How in the hell is he gonna call the damn shots? He ain’t the damn king, he ain’t the king, he can’t call no shots.

Floyd is calling the shots, it’s simple, and that way right there everything will be taken care off. With little Floyd being the king of everything, Pacquiao is gonna take that test and then Pacquiao is gonna have to settle for what Floyd wants him to have, simple.

Pacquiao, I think he should take that fight with my son and delete Bob Arum out of the situation and go for what he can go for, do the best he can do because right now he ain’t doing very good.

Jenna: In closing Floyd, what can the fans expect from Floyd Joy Mayweather Sr. in the new year?

Mayweather Sr: Oh you can always look for big things coming from me because I’m the kind of guy that makes things happen. You all can look at “The Knockout” the reality show and shortly after that, the next month following, you will be seeing “The Mayweather’s House” that is a reality show.

It’s gonna be a pretty good outstanding year for me, I’m just saying because things are going very, very good. As a matter of fact, things are going good for me for quite a while. Only thing I can tell you is that things have gotten much better.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER SR: “ANYTIME SOMEONE GETS THEIR ASS WHOOPED LIKE BRONER OR PACQUIAO GOT WHOOPED, I DON’T THINK THERE’S NO COMING BACK!”

  4. Casio says:

    You’re such a big liar Senior! You and your son should buy epoxy and stck it in your mouth… hahaha

  5. Nazareno San Jose says:

    Floyd, Sr. harbor so much ill feeling against Roach because of what happened to his fighter, Hatton. Pacquiao sent his boxer to “dreamland” and permanently retire him from the ring. Floyd did not even face the media after the fight as customarily the procedures. He could not swallow his pride. I think this is the primary reason at that time that he would not want his son, Floyd Jr to face Pacquiao for fear that he too would suffer a great debacle.Now, they are prepare to face Pacquiao but still with condition without Bob Arum as Pacquiao manager, which is a multi-million dollar question and as the only scapegoat in order the fight will not happen again they are so scared of Pacquiao..

  6. jeporo says:

    Floyd Sr. and Floydie Jr. Including Roger should stick their dicks to each others asses because thats whats best for the Mayweathers…

  7. noelzki says:

    shut your mouth MONKEY MAYCOWARD SR!!!!!

  8. Garvin says:

    Floyd Sr., let that award go to Freddie Roach, he deserves it. Don’t worry, there’s another award, to be given this month and you’re the hand’s down winner of it. THE UGLIEST RETARDED OF ALL TIME!!

  9. Maidana says:

    The best title for the reality show should be The Run away, The Gayweather Family, The Coward, How Gayweather makes Money sucking people, The Queen Gayweather, The Duck Family, Nightmare at Pacland, The Fear. So I guess Gayweather should open a survey to know the the right title for the “Queen of Boxing”

  10. Mitchell says:

    The best title for the show for the mayweather’s is, “duck dynasty-black version”.

  11. Ben says:

    Floyd sr is crazy like his son! These mayweather are completely jealous of the accomplishments of roach and pacman. Just ask floyd to fight pacman so he can have his ass busted by the pacman!

  12. iriga city boy says:

    The Senior is saying his son is not fighting Pacquiao because the Filipino needs money.And the latter is asking a 60-40 or a 50-50,which is a “no no” to the Mayweather Camp.
    So the Filipino countered with a “charity fight”,the proceeds go to the people.That way it can be tested if the Mayweathers are scared or Pacquiao really needs money.
    But the Mayweathers became silent.
    So what is it Senior?
    And stop dictating the terms.We are not in the Colonization pertiod of history.Pacquiao won’t carry your baggage,cook food for you,or open up the door as you exit.
    The best way to fix this impassee is get a 3rd person ,an independent one,not beholden to GBP and Top Rank and be the mediator to get this fight to take off.They tried it the first time .Try again because the fans are ripe about this fight.
    But Senior,stop acting like you are the big boss on the block and shouting orders.
    We want even playing field.Brave warriors play and fight fair.
    Do you fight fair?

  16. Dudes says:

    This is only I can say, To the Gay Weather and Family. No body believes in you anymore, you are now run out out of excuses, the next thing you will ask is you will fight Manny if he is blind folded with a handcap between the arms and the legs

  17. ironmike says:

    lol! Mayweather CLOWNS! talkin about your coward Son being the king? you must be out of your god damn mind!

    ain’t nobody gonna dictate any one what to do! not even OBAMA!

    Ya’ll Mayweathers are the cancer of boxing!

  18. Jack says:

    They are just making lots of excuses not to fight Pacquiao. The truth is they are afraid, Manny will beat up Jr. like Sr beat up by Leonard!

  19. JL says:

    I agree that floyd is the top guy right now, but the first time that Pac negotiated with Floyd Pac was also the top guy at that point.. bottom line floyd is calling the shot and he ain’t fighting the pacman..for some “reason”

  20. Jay says:

    This could possibly be another excuse to avoid the fight; with the Pacman. The Mayweather’s know Pacquiao won’t leave his promoter, and this is why the fight will not likely occur. Furthermore, it is perhaps a ploy the Mayweather’s will use, to have the upper edge on Manny (if this fight should occur). He requested the drug testing (Manny agreed to all of the terms), the glove size (bigger gloves to perhaps reduce Manny’s power, and so Mayweather can tap him, by attempting to outbox him), the ring size (so perhaps, he can box), the money (Manny agreed to the 55-45 split), the fight occur at 154 pounds (so perhaps Manny will have excess wait on his body, making him slow, have less energy, and to perhaps reduce Manny’s punching power), etcetera. Watch Mayweather (perhaps) request to have the later ring entrance; so he can by time, making Manny wait from him, to enter the Boxing ring. The reasons (perhaps) are to play mind games with Manny (attempt to make Manny wait for him, so Manny will lose his concentration, and attempt to make him mad), and to perhaps catch him cold (because Manny will cool down from his warm up; and he will not perform as well, like Mayweather did with Mosley). The list goes on and on. The Mayweather’s can do whatever they want with Pacquiao; and this perhaps could be a set up for him to lose, if Pacquiao leaves Arum, and he goes with another promoter (possibly appointed by the Mayweather’s). There’s an old saying: You can fool some people, but you can’t fool “EVERYONE.” The list goes on and on…

    YOU’ RE ALL DISRESPECTFUL FANS,, YOU’ALL PROBABLY ARENT EVEN FANS OF THE SPORT OF BOXING. JUST PAQUIAO FANS. SO YOUR OPINIONS ARE ONE DIMENSIONAL. YOUALL DONT KNOW WHAT GOES ON BEHIND THE SCENES. IF PAQUIAO WAS TO LEAVE BOB ARUM ,.. YOUR COMMENTS WOULD PROABLY CHANGE. AND YOU WOULD SAY ITS THE GREATES THING PAQUIAO COULDVE DONE. I PERSONALLY LOVE THE WAY PAQUIAO FIGHTS, IM A FAN. BUT IM ALSO A FAN OF FLOYDS STYLE OF BOXING. IM A FAN OF GGG, IM A FAN OF CANELO, FAN OF RIGONDEAUX, JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ, BRADLEY, MARAVILLA , MAN THERES SO MANY GREAT FIGHTERS. BUT IM SURE THRES ALOT OF THINGS THAT HAPPEN BEHIND THE SCENES THAT PREVENT CERTAIN FIGHTS FROM HAPPENING. ASIDE FROM PRIDE, THESE FIGHTERS FIGHT TO FEED THEIR FAMILIES. AND YOU GUYS JST TROW THE COWARD COMMENTS WHEN THATS JST YOUR OPINIONS. GO SPARR IN A BOXING GYM BEFORE YOU SAY SOMETHING STUPID LIKE CALLING PROFFESIONAL FIGHTERS COWARDS..TRUST ME I WOULD LOVE TO SEE PAQUIAO FIGHT FLOYD. AND I KNOW FLOYD HAS ENOUGH SKILLS TO MAKE PAQUIAO LOOK BAD. BUT AT THE SAME TIME PAQUIAO HAS ENOUGH SPEED AND ENOUGH POWER TO PUT FLOYD OUT COLD. WE JUST WONT KNOW UNTIL THEY FIGHT. WE CAN SPECULATE BUT DONT CALL THEM COWARDS. THESE GUYS PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE . ONE BAD SHOT TO THE HEAD, AND SOME BRAIN SWELLING, ND YOUR DEAD. SO SHOW SOME RESPECT IN YOUR COMMENTS IF YOUR REAL BOXING FANS.IF ANYTHING IT IS THE PROMOTERS AND TV EXECUTIVES FAULTS FOR CERTAIN FIGHTS NOT HAPPENING. TAKE FOR INSTANCE. BRANDON RIOS SAYING HE WOULD LOVE A FIGHT WITH PROVODNIKOV. & PROVODNIKOV WOULD LOVE A FIGHT WITH BAM BAM. BUT NOW THEY HAVE TO WAIT FOR ARUM, AND THE HBO EXECUTIVES TO DECIDE WETHER THEY WANT TO MAKE THE FIGHT OR NOT.AND THEN THEY HAVE TO TALK ABOUT PURSES $$$ SO ITS NOT ALWAYS UP TO THE FIGHTERS. I PERSONALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE SHOWTIME FIGHTERS(GOLDEN BOY) AND HBO (TOP RANK) FIGHTERS GET IT ON.PUT ON TUNAMENTS IN EVERY WEIGHT DEVISION FROM FOTH STABLES AND FIND OUT WHOS AT THE TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN.LOL THAT WOULD BE SO MANY GREAT FIGHTS WE COULD HAVE. THE FANS WOULD WIN, AND THE NTWORKS WOULD WIN, THE FIGHTERS WILL GET MORE FIGHT, MORE $$$PAQUIAO COULD FIGHT CANELO OR THE GHOST GUERRERO, IF HE CAN THEM OUT OR BEAT THEM DECISIVELY THEN FIGHT FLOYD. PAQUIAO VS CANELO WOULD MAKE A TON OF MONEY. ANYWAYS , ALL I GOTTA SAY IS RESPECT. IM OUT.

  25. Anonymous says:

    This old fag do not know the facts. MP was knockout on 2012 not in 2013. That’s why Roach did not get it on 2012. He got it this year again because of Cotto and MP winning.
