Says only Floyd Jr. can beat 'Pacman'
MANILA, Philippines - Floyd Mayweather Sr. is predicting a victory for pound-for-pound king Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao when the Filipino champion takes on Mexican rival Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
"Marquez won't win this one," he said in a FightHype.com interview. "Marquez is gonna get his a** whooped. Marquez is gonna get the sh*t beat out of him."
Mayweather said that only one fighter right now is capable of beating Pacquiao - his son, Floyd Mayweather Jr.
"Freddie Roach knows that Lil Floyd is the only fighter that can beat Pacquiao," he said.
The older Mayweather is also slamming Roach, Pacquiao's trainer, for saying that Floyd Jr. came out "slow and flat-footed" in his bout against Victor Ortiz last September 17.
"How the hell did Lil Floyd look slow when he hit Ortiz with anything he wanted to hit him with? He hit him with so many straight right hands and left hooks," Mayweather said.
Mayweather Sr. said he will try to attend Pacquiao-Marquez III. "I will try to make it out there. I like going to those fights," he said.
