MANILA, Philippines – Unbeaten American boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is reportedly teaming up with his father, retired boxer-now trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr.
Floyd Jr. has posted a photo of him with his father on his RockLive account.
“Me and my trainer (my dad) back working together getting ready for May 4th,” said Floyd Jr.
The boxer has had a rocky relationship with Floyd Sr. for years, even booting out his father while he was training for the Victor Ortiz fight in 2011.
However, there have been speculations about the health issues plaguing his long-time trainer and uncle Roger Mayweather. This reportedly prompted Floyd Jr. to reunite with his father.
Floyd Jr. still has to formally announce his next opponent for May 4, although he said IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander is the leading candidate among his choices.
