Floyd Mayweather Considering His Father as Head Trainer for Upcoming Fights
Floyd’s uncle Roger Mayweather has been training Floyd since the Younger Mayweather fired his father who had trained him since birth. Floyd has been fiercely loyal to Roger throughout the years treating him more like a father than his own.
Roger’s health is deteriorating and it is forcing Floyd to think about bringing his father back into the fold.
“At this particular time, I’m thinking about working back with my father,”
“Roger is not eating well; he’s not healthy. I want him to get healthy and eat better so he can have a sharp mind, because his mind is not as sharp as it once was,” Mayweather explained during a recent conversation. “Roger, you know, he’s very, very sick at this particular time, so I’m thinking about working back with my father.
“My dad has to realize I’m an adult, you know. I just want my dad to accept and respect me as an adult. I think my dad, the thing is, he still looks at me as his 10-year-old son. I’m a lot closer to 40 than I am to 21, but I have a lot left in the tank and I want to go out there and give the fans nothing but excitement,”
The relationship between Jr and Sr has been violated over the years, personally I think it would be a terrible idea, but I also can’t see Mayweather going outside of the family. Don’t be surprised if his cousin Jeff Mayweather doesn’t eventually get the call.
This will all be played out of course in front of the 24/7 cameras.
