The greatest thing about the sport of boxing is the absurd amount of trash talking that goes on between both sides. Since Mayweather-Pacquiao is one of the biggest fights ever to hit Las Vegas you could imagine every aspect of the bout will be over-hyped included the smack talk.
Freddie Roach, the trainer for Manny Pacquiao wondered if Floyd Mayweather would even show up for the fight of the century? “I don’t know why Floyd has gone quiet for this fight. I really am wondering if he’s going to turn up on the night” Roach said.
Roach claims Mayweather’s camp has been fighting Pacquiao’s camp about almost every detail of the fight and wondered if the undefeated Champ even wanted this or if he was forced into it?
Floyd Mayweather Sr. the father and trainer of Floyd reacted strongly when told that Roach thought his son might not show up saying “Freddie Roach is a joke, blowing smoke with no hope.” Pretty catchy, don’t you think?
Floyd Sr. was also adamant that people from Michigan should call Floyd Jr. one of theirs. “Of course, they got to call him one of theirs. I’m pretty sure they should do everything that everybody else do and put his name on the street somewhere. Somewhere his name has to go up.”
Mayweather loves his money and he has a ton of it too, he makes no secret about it. He makes bets ranging from the hundreds of thousands to even millions of dollars and obviously he’s not winning them all. As a father Floyd Sr. does admit that Jr. has to watch his money. “I hope that he does the right thing with his money because you can have a whole bunch of money (and) it’s gone like that.”
