Floyd Sr, father and trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr, makes a fearless forecast on his son’s fight versus Manny Pacquiao.
What is it? Find out in Natashya Gutierrez’s video blog.
FLOYD MAYWEATHER SR: The fight is already won. Trust and believe me.
And the fight heats up.
Floyd Mayweather Sr does not hold back in letting the world know that his son Floyd Mayweather Jr will win the megafight against Manny Pacquiao on May 2.
It’s a stark contrast to the younger Mayweather’s attitude the day before, who did not trash talk Pacquiao.
His father and trainer makes a bold prediction though: Mayweather will knock out Pacquiao.
FLOYD MAYWEATHER SR: To be honest with you, it won’t be much of a fight. (Short?) Pretty much.
Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach meanwhile, says knocking out Mayweather is not part of Pacquiao’s game plan.
FREDDIE ROACH: I really think we can win by decision here. And that’s what my game plan is. To outscore him. And use fast combinations. If he stays in the pocket too long we will get hit back.
He also says he will not allow Mayweather to run from Pacquiao.
He could run all night and I have fallen asleep in some of his fights before
He says he could see Mayweather going in for the kill in early rounds to try to knock Pacquiao out but he says they are ready for it, having worked on it in training camp.
Pacquiao has worked on his defense for the fight against Mayweather… following his knockout loss to Juan Manuel Marquez in 2013.
Mayweather too has been relentless in training to keep his undefeated record… calling the fight the biggest one of his life.
Anticipation builds just 2 days before fight night. Finally the long awaited question in the sport will soon be answered: who is the best pound for pound fighter of this generation?
