Manny Pacquiao will bleed, speculated Floyd Mayweather’s father, Floyd Sr. He has been very vocal as of late about his son winning the fight of the decade. Mayweather has downplayed the Filipino World Champion Manny Pacquiao with belief that Mayweather Jr will dominate his opponent.
Floyd Sr., who is also his son’s trainer, called the most anticipated games of 2015 as a mismatch between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Floyd Sr. is known for his sharp tongue and has been very active recently in the boxing arena by giving expert opinion in boxing matches.
He was recently quoted for downplaying the Kazakh middleweight champion Golovkin by calling him a not-very-good fighter. He further added that anyone can punch, but this does not make one a good boxer.
The Mayweather Vs Pacquiao bout is considered as the super fight of 2015 which means it will most probably get the highest viewership of 2015. The announcement for the game arrives in the context of Mayweather’s retirement news. The game is expected to be one of the best fights in the history of boxing, a fitting exit for the undefeated champion.
Floyd Sr. has expressed his views about the game very openly and said that Pacquiao will bleed. According to Floyd Sr. “I see him (Mayweather) giving Pacquiao a good beat down, him bleeding out the ear, out the noise, out the mouth, out the eyes,”. It may just be another marketing gimmick or just a plot to stay in the news, but the statement has created ripples across the social media by enraging Pacquiao fans.
Focusing on Mayweather’s superior timing and accuracy, Floyd Sr. has claimed that the game will have the same result as the 2013’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez Vs Mayweather game, in which Mayweather uprooted his opponents to mark a historic win. In words of Mayweather Sr. “Pacquiao ain’t stronger than Canelo. Pacquiao don’t box as good as Canelo. Canelo is much bigger, much stronger, hits much harder, a much better boxer”.
Floyd Sr. was interviewed by The Boxing Voice, in which he called the upcoming match as ‘One Sided’ He further added that the hype is completely useless and that it will be an easy win for Mayweather to pick up the win. Floyd Sr. is very confident about his son’s victory and ruled out any possibility of a rematch between Mayweather and Pacquiao.
