Floyd Sr. wants his son to fight Pacquiao

Published in

Floyd Mayweather Sr. thinks that his son Floyd Jr. will set up a fight against English boxer Amir Khan next rather than taking on the challenge of the World Boxing Association or the WBA and World Boxing Council or the WBC Light Welterweight Championship holder Danny Garcia.

The senior Floyd, however, believes neither of the two will stand a chance of defeating his son inside the ring and as a result, he is not particularly thrilled about him taking on any one of them. And the one fighter Floyd Sr. thinks will get the fans and he excited is if his son fought Manny Pacquiao.

That is the one fight that Floyd Sr. wants because he sees The Filipino Bomber as a huge draw for a pay per view fight and it will indeed be a big money fight with Money cleaning out almost all other competition in the division and he also sees a potential fight between the two as an opportunity for his son to inflict a humiliating defeat on the former eight division world champion.

Speaking to a Unibet, Floyd Sr. stated that if his son checks Pacquiao thoroughly, from head to toe, then he would see that he is the last man standing in front of him, going on to add that he will give him a very good beating.

He went on to add that his son will have to take every challenge in front of him. But he also stated that if, however, Manny Pacquiao gives Floyd Jr. a good beating, then they will have to stop the fight immediately and see what Manny is up to because something definitely won’t be right.

But with Bob Arum as the promoter for The Pacman, setting up that fight will be a massive feat in itself.
