Jeff Mayweather: “Where did all the phenomenon of Manny Pacquiao’s power and mystique go? It’s gone now!”

53 Submitted by on Wed, 02 July 2014, 02:02

I recently had the chance to speak with former IBO title holder, uncle of Floyd Mayweather Jr, and respected trainer, ‘Jazzy’ Jeff Mayweather. A variety of topics were discussed in this interview, including the upcoming Canelo Alvarez vs. Erislandy Lara match, a possible Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, Danny Garcia possibly fighting Floyd Mayweather in the future, and much more. Here is what Jeff Mayweather had to say in part 2 of his interview.

Robert Brown: There is talk of Danny Garcia moving up and fighting Floyd in the future, how do you think that fight would go?

Jeff Mayweather: Easy fight, extremely easy. Herrera showed that he can’t get out of the way of a jab, and if he couldn’t get out of the way from his jab, he surely ain’t gonna get out of the way of Floyd’s jab.

Robert Brown: Business-wise do you think there would be a fair amount of money in it?

Jeff Mayweather: Yeah he has a decent following. He don’t have a huge following but he has a decent following, but he’s already taken a fight, so he’s already taken himself out of the picture. I think he fights some time in August, so that cancels it. You can’t fight in August and September.

Robert Brown: You don’t see Danny Garcia as an option in Floyd’s last few fights?

Jeff Mayweather: Yeah he could be. He could be, especially if he continues to be unbeaten, he definitely has a shot. Don’t get me wrong, to be honest, I think if you’re talking business only, the last three fights with Floyd should be: Amir Khan, Miguel Cotto and maybe Canelo if he wins. Not necessarily in that order, but those would be the three guys that basically you cash out and call it a career.

That would be three huge fights, and for every one of those fights Floyd would have to be focused, he would have to continue to work hard like he’s always done. He can’t sleep on those guys.

Robert Brown: With Bob Arum and Oscar De La Hoya now working together, does it slightly open the door for a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight happening?

Jeff Mayweather: Not really because if Pacquiao wanted to fight, he wouldn’t have resigned with Bob. I’m not saying that fight can’t happen, that fight probably still can happen but it’s gonna be a very hard fight to make.

It’s not gonna be easy, it’s gonna be a lot of ramifications and a lot of red tape and a whole lot of negotiations for that fight to even take place. Unfortunately Bob and Floyd just don’t get along and Floyd don’t want to do business with him. If that doesn’t change, the fight won’t happen.

Robert Brown: A fifth fight between Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez might happen first because of the money involved. How do you see that fight playing out?

Jeff Mayweather: Well to be honest, I think Marquez because I think Marquez won all the fights except one, I think he just got schooled all the other times. I don’t see it being any different.

Pacquiao had a short run knocking out guys and everybody jumped on his bandwagon and made him this big huge star — when he beat Cotto, Margarito, De La Hoya and Hatton. Since that time, what has he really done?

Don’t get me wrong, he beat some names. He beat Shane Mosley — who didn’t really come to fight — but all the mystique, all his tremendous punching power, what happened to it? Everything is gone now, he’s a regular guy that came up from 126lbs.

When he was 126lbs, his knockout ratio was 50%, he goes up 20 more pounds and his knockout ratio is like 90%, how does that happen? The thing is this, now all of the sudden, where did it go? Where did all this power go? Where did all the phenomenon of Pacquiao’s power and mystique go? It’s gone now.

It’s one of those situations where people still want to see Floyd fight him for what he did 2 years ago, not for what he did now, because he was on his face against Marquez. The last time he fought Marquez, since that time he hasn’t done anything really to even mandate a fight. Just because of the fact that he has a huge following it makes the fight worth while.

Robert Brown: Why don’t you tell us a little bit about what you’re up to these days.

Jeff Mayweather: Right now I’m just basically training fighters from all different sports, all different combat sports. I’m training MMA fighters, I’m training kickboxers and training boxers. I was sick for a little while, drank and energy drink and almost died from it.

I went through a real bad period of my life of about seven to eight months of basically not being able to really do anything. I’m finally getting back to the gym and back doing what I love, and that’s training fighters. I’m happy to be back and I’m looking forward to what the future holds.

Robert Brown: Another fight coming up is Canelo Alvarez vs. Erislandy Lara. How do you see this fight playing out?

Jeff Mayweather: I think it’s pretty much a pick’em fight but I lean towards Canelo, I think Canelo is the bigger puncher. I think that Lara is the better boxer — I also think Canelo is a very good boxer — but I think maybe the punching power will probably be the difference. One thing with Lara, he’s a boxer but he doesn’t really throw combinations, Canelo throws a lot of combinations. I have to lean to Canelo by decision.

    these maywethers babbles a lot of things about manny, why don’t you just ask lil floydie to fight lil manny, nuff said.

  2. “Where did all this power go? Where did all the phenomenon of Pacquiao’s power and mystique go? It’s gone now”

    Then, why dont Floyd agree to fight Manny….its an easy fight for 100M for Floyd if that what you said is true or “Floyd truly afraid of Manny (this must be true ha ha ha ha ha….)”

  3. UrSuperHero says:

    lol. %90 ? apart from hatton all fighters ended on there feet.. oscar cotto.. manny punches in volume its accumulative punches.. jeffs playing dumb because he cant back his nefew any other way.. u cant be honest and back floyd. Who in there right mind would no resign with there promoter at a “chance” to fight floyd.. look what happend to amir..

  4. floydcott says:

    and how about your coward nephew? Who last k.o was a sucker punch and manny k.o % is going down cause he fought bigger and bigger guy’s. We all knew that manny is legit 140 pounder, so don’t suprise. you moron don’t know shit of boxing!

  5. junjman says:

    When you are on top people will try to bring you down. Too much talk from Scareweather Clans making boxing like a joke. Its all envy including Paulie Magicman who looks like a clown who never really made bigtime boxing. Accusing the Pac of whatever but was just far far far below from the word phenomenal. Manny has still a lot left whatever you say in the next 2 to 3 years you guys running scared all d time making boxing like a comedy, ahahaha

    who is this author???jeff mayweather..i dont know him..is he a boxer???what does he knows about boxing??

  7. ankolnifloyd says:

    Lol. Where did that power go? what a question? He is declining because of age. stupid question. You are mayweather, of course you protect floyd to avoid the shame. now if you think manny has something before which vanished now, then why floyd doesnt want to fight him? that would be easy for gayweather right? then fight now! lol

  8. Anonymous says:

    these mayweather clan has a good job to bullying PACMAN…your nephew has too much scared of PACMAN..hiding all the time to trade punches to PACMAN is necessary for him…IDIOT MAYWEATHER TOO MUCH TRASH TALKING!..

  9. Hey Duckweathers, why don’t you just fight Pacquiao instead of bashing him all the time. These cowards just talk and talk and talk about manny and yet they don’t want to fight the guy. Cowards!

  10. artjd says:

    Hey, Jeff boy, do you know Roberto Duran? Ok, in case you don’t know him, I’ll give you a background. Duran was the most fearsome guy in his time, particularly at the lightweight division, whom he ruled like an emperor, knocking guys out. At lightweight, the question is not whut the skillether Duran will lose or win but at what round will he knock out the guy in front of him. I his latter years, when he moved to middleweight, it’s no longer the power but the skill that had kept him to still be an elite fighter. So, I now posed the question “Where did all the power and mystique of Duran go? it’s gone now”. I f you know the answer to that question with respect to Duran, you will know the answer to your question with respect to Pacquiao. If you don’t know the answer, then you don’t know @#$% about boxing.

  11. vincent says:

    these human ducks tattles so much about manny, a sign of terrific fear of him.

    • jess says:

      Pacquiao intentionally did not KO his last opponents starting with Margarito to make Floydie Jr think Pacquiao is no longer he is. Along the way Pacquiao got unlucky with his fights with Marquez & Bradley. But if ever Floydie Jr agree to fight Pacquiao, Manny’s old self of a devastating knock out artist will come forth. This is the same view that Floydie Jr is having which is why he has 1,000 and one outrageous alibis not to fight Pacquiao. Coward!!!!!!

  12. tony says:

    I thought that the Mayweathers are all about money, hence the name MONEY.
    Pacquiao means Money, lots of it. But how come Mayweather Jeff talks about earning a fight against his nephew, and not about making money. They sure can double talk. If Pacquiao got KO’d by Marquez, wouldn’t it be a no-brainer to rake in the money the easy way by fighting Pacquiao? I think Mayweather is still scared of losing his zero.

  13. Mummblingmayweathers says:

    A. Since Mayweather is all about $, shouldn’t he fight Pacquiao since it would make the biggest pay day by far- maybe of all time???

    B. If Mayweather truly cares about his fans who helped make him rich, shouldn’t he fight Pacquiao because that is who 99% want to see Floyd fight???

    C. Clearly Pacquiao is second to Mayweather in revenue generated and has accomplished things that Mayweather hasn’t, so shouldn’t he have been given the Mayweather fight a long time ago???

    D. The Mayweathers always talk about what happened to Pacquiao’s power and knockouts etc…However, Floyd isn’t exactly Mr. knockout??? I’m so sick of all these excuses and how Floyd won’t make a fight cause of Arum…GET OVER IT!!! YOU ARE A FIGHTER. Bunch of nonsense.
    E. HOW CAN THEY JUSTIFY CHOOSING ALL THESE OTHER OPPONENTS OVER PACQUIAO???

  14. adan says:

    you know if your brother floyd is afraid so were you and this is where you don’t understand JEFF floyd is a pu ssy and so were you .AFFFFRAID DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. got that AFFFFRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAID .

  16. Mummblingmayweathers says:

    I wish I was a journalist and had the chance to interview Floyd as to why he isn’t fighting Pacquiao. I would not put up with any of his silly excuses. I would win that debate no problem. Every time I see an interview with Floyd everyone is kissing his ass and is not standing up to him. SOMEONE SMART IN THE MEDIA NEEDS TO CONFRONT HIM AND OUTWIT HIM…MAKE HIS EXC– USES LOOK STUPID. COME ON THAT IS YOUR JOB JOURNALISTS! THIS IS A CHALLENGE TO ALL YOU WIMPY JOURNALISTS!!! COME ON ONTHEROPESBOXING.COM OR ANY OTHER MEDIA SOURCE. YOU ARE NOT DOING YOUR JOB GETTING DOWN TO CALLING OUT ALL THE RIGHT QUESTIONS AT THE RIGHT TIME. HIRE ME! I HAVE MY BA IN ENGLISH AND MA IN TEACHING. AND I”M NOT AFRAID TO GIVE FLOYD A REAL INTERVIEW. I’M SICK OF ALL THIS NONSENSE! LET ME SEE A REAL INTERVIEWER STAND UP TO A MAYWEATHER AND TO FIX ALL THIS OTHER CHILDISHNESS BETWEEN SHAEFER AND ARUM AND ANYONE ELSE LETTING THERE PERSONAL DIFFERENCES GET IN THE WAY OF MAKING THE BEST FIGHTS>>>SO CHILDISH. I LOVE BOXING BUT CANT THINK OF A SPORT WITH AS MANY DOUCHEBAGS AS THESE F__KS

  26. blood says:

    this site is a mayweather mouthpiece just like fighthype and uses manny’s name to get some hits. I’ve been avoiding this site, but i have to say this for the last time to let u guys know.

  27. Anonymous says:

    It’s either you “PUT UP or SHUT UP”! it’s that simple. Floyd is just too scared. It’s not about the money, It’s about his huge EGO that Manny might pop it!

  28. PACMANUSA says:

    Ignorant crackhead !

  29. Mateng says:

    And yet Floyd’s still scared as hell. where did all the mayweathers balls go?

  30. Dude says:

    Yes pacpower is Gone its time for your nephew to exploit that weakness ……for everybodys sake fight pac and school him if you could.

  31. hagire says:

    thanks for the support uncle jeff I really need that, I can’t get over with pac phobia even he is declining now. dad,uncle roger help me with the new alibi, no no no I will stick to bob issue -gayduckerweather

  32. hagire says:

    too scared to fight the dynamic southpaw of the Philippines, gayweather clan wants to knock out pacman outside the ring because they can’t afford to lose the 0 loss inside the ring. google it “most coward boxer of all time”. Suprise it’s gayweather

  33. hagire says:

    uncle jeff please google “ducker boxer” or “most coward boxer of all time”, do you like a clue, he is close to your heart.

  34. rodney says:

    Uncle Gayweather is an idiot. He thinks people in the boxing business are idiots too.Stupid moron.

  35. Erniel says:

    Where’s Mayweather’s balls go? Stop using other’s name when your gay nephew is gonna fight someone else! If you believe that no one could defeat the gay boxer why avoid someone you considered off-the-hill?

  36. Steely says:

    Why in hell Floyd you asked those demands (OSDT, Purse and PPV sharing etc) when all along it was Bob is the reason/excuse. If I kill Bob would you fight or will it be just a waste of my time and Bob’s life? LOL

  37. Joe Bob says:

    This guy looks like he’s missing a chromosome trying to get some attention. His nephew is still a loud mouth duck who will never get the respect he deserves until he fights the other champ. F@ck a duck!

  38. wayne V-A Lord Sr says:

    Since the Cotto fight, a TKO on accumulated punches, Manny has fought guys who have had only one loss by TKO or KO. He broke Margarito’s orbital bone in a severe beating. Clottey covered up. Mosley got hit hard and ran all night. Marquez has always taken Manny’s shots. He beat Bradley twice but lost a decision. Bradley has never been ko-ed. Rios has never left his feet.
    In each of these fight Manny showed good power just as he always showed even in lower weights. He is not a one shot ko artist but he does hit hard and still does. The Mayweathers come on these sites and the interviewers throw under arm lobs and never challenge them. Jeff is entitled to his opinion but when he makes a basic mistake about Manny being 90% since he moved up, he should have been corrected.
    They never know names of boxers. They claim they don’t watch and then make comments about them . They quote old time fighters and again their facts are also wrong. Why do they keep getting asked for their opinions which are always biased for Floyd against any other fighter. No other fighter is any good for them. Case closed…….

  39. Hernan Fortu says:

    Where has Floyd’s balls go? It shrivelled and crwaled up his ass the moment he watched Pacman destroyed bigger opponents.

  40. Uglyduck says:

    The quackers are great story tellers.

  41. Todd says:

    My goodness! These Mayweathers are ridiculous. I keep on saying this…if the Mayweathers think beating Manny is so easy then why don’t they make the fight? After all, it would be the biggest fight in boxing history and Mayweather would make a huge amount of money.

    The reason they don’t fight him…because they know Pacquiao is extremely dangerous. Listen, Manny got knocked out by Marquez but was on his way to easily beating him. Marquez landed the punch from hell….the punch of a lifetime. Bradley did not beat Pacquaio…the judges beat Pacquiao. Manny revenged that “loss”.

    Pacquaio has somethings that bother Mayweather….speed, great movement and he still has good power. Pacquaio does not throw as much punches as he used to but his speed and movement would drive Mayweather crazy.

    Floyd, you are a coward…stop making excuses!

  42. RumirNemo says:

    Hello Jeff Mayweather ,,, if you think that the phenomenom of PACQUIAO;S Mystique and Power had all GONE…THEN, why don’t you convince your nephew Floyd ‘The Money” Mayweather, Jr. to fight Manny “PACMAN” Paquiao ???…as it has been construed that its time that your mouth had to open and you have to say somethings…its seems that you had been become a laughing stocks…..WHY?…for the reasons that it seems that you and FloydIe had been posing all along…..and when it comes to the Name Manny PACQUIAO YOU AND YOUR NEPHEW HAD NOT DONE SOMETHING ABOUT IT…AND IT IS CONSTRUED THAT THE REASONS IS BECA– USE YOU ARE ALL AFRAID…..and t hat according to one of your fans in the Philppines is that Floyd ‘MONEY ‘ Mayweather IS ACTUALLY A Coward???. and TH AT HE WILL again RESPECT YOU IF you will fight Manny Paquaio…and should you defeat the PACMAN….

  43. KARIM T says:

    AS HOLYFIELD SAID ” MAYWEATHER DOES NOT HAVE THE CONFIDENCE THAT HE CAN BEAT PACQUIAO” . SO FLOYD, JUST FIGHT PACMAN INSIDE THE RING!

  44. KARIM T says:

    TYSON SAID THAT WITH ALL HIS MONEY, FLOYD IS EMPTY INSIDE FOR AVOIDING THE BIGGEST THREAT IN HIS CAREER. TO PROVE TO HIMSELF AND THE WORLD THAT HE IS THE BEST .

  45. KARIM T says:

    ALI SAID SINCE YOU BEAT MAIDANA, THEN IT’S TIME TO FUGHT PACQUIAO

  46. GorrillaMonsoon says:

    Floyd is scared of Pacquaio, Period.
