His uncle might trained him but he fights the way his father taught him enuff said to all u fools

Since Roger took over training, Floyds pops has been criticizing Floyd Jr’s style for YEARS. This criticism could be simply jealousy. Or it could be objective. NO ONE knows for sure. Marquez – now 39 has become better. Cotto – after King Emanuel Stewart reminded him he developed poor balance – improved. It would do Floyd no harm in seeking some insight from the one who taught him EVERYTHING in terms of handskills. Mentally, Floyd has developed his own edge in the ring, so it wouldnt hurt to glean some things that MAY have been forgotten by the Senior Guru! Past hurts wont allow these guys to jell, but if Sr has something to say, like E.F Hutton – Jr should listen. Floyd can continue to be successful without pops, but success may come with less lumps at this age “IF” pops insight is truly genuine….GREAT article!!….

what it is

Roger was a 2x world champ. Floyd Sr. fell short of that by way of KO. So much for defense huh?

Floyd will do well with either trainer. His Father ids the one who taught him how to box. Every family fights together at times. If Roger is sick…pops can step up. Sr. deserves to get his shine on too.

This crazy cracker agree with you but Father Floyd brings out a beast in JR that uncle Roger at times kept locked away.

Floyd’s already the best fighter in the world. Not sure if he needs to worry about getting better. I’ll be happy for him if he takes on Guerrero and Alvarez next year, whoops them, and then rides off into the sunset with a farewell KO of the Pac-man (assuming Manny wins the fifth go-round with Marquez) in Spring of 2014.

you all underestimate the mayweathers like none of you dont have problems at home thats the funny part he started with his father and floyd sr. will not faulter he didnt train oscar to fight his son so he always been behind his son this is sr,s dream to train once again with his son yes they will have problems but come fight night whoever it is will no floyd is stll the truth

Roger and Big Floyd both have pros and cons, but personally i think Floyd jr is the answer. The mayweather gym has no other top guys in it. Floyd jr is the special one, the stand out fighter in that gym by a long long way. Infact there are no other decent guys in that gym lol, everyone else is low in the rankings, with more than a few ‘l’s on there records.

PROUD AFRICAN: I agree that Mayweather’s uncle Roger is the best choice. Roger always comes across as extremely committed to his nephew plus he knows EXACTLY what it takes for the victory. Hopefully, Roger is taking care of his health — I have lots of respect for him as trainer.

Chuck – Haha! I know, when I first read the title, I said to myself “Oh damn, Floyd Sr. is training Jr.”….then I read it, and….NO!

The title of the article should be “Would Floyd Mayweather be better with his father training him?”. If you say “Will”, you’re saying that Floyd Jr has in fact rehired his father and you’re just asking whether it will be a good partnership or not. The word “Would” means that you’re imagining this as a hypothesis (which you totally are).

“a change of trainers to his father Floyd ‘Joy’ Mayweather may be a good thing” No. Jr. and his father don’t get along. The matchup would be counter-productive. Until Roger’s diabetes prevents him from doing his job, Jr. should stay with his uncle.

This article is a WASTE of space and simply the journalistic equivalent of gibberish….Now Mayweather needs a new trainer? GTFOH

This article is ridiculous… Floyd Mayweather has done everything that can be done in boxing and remained undefeated doing EXACTLY what he has been doing… This writer wants to Monday Morning Quarterback his career after 15 years??? Suddenly Floyd needs a refresher course because he got in the ring with a HOF fighter who put up a damn good effort? Nonsense, the MOST flawless fighter in the sport suddenly needs to be MORE flawless?

The idea that a boxer can be perfect, never get hit or have all their performances exactly mirror the others is a myth that needs to be dispelled….Floyd is getting OLDER and if he keeps hanging around his fights will start looking ALOT different thats why we understand a fighters reasonable prime vs the latter stages of his career and inevitable decline.

I agree with the pointless comment..I didn’t bother reading it all…”Taking nothing away” from you Robert, but the P4P fighter who has a great relationship with his current trainer/uncle, and and a rocky relationship with his father/ex-trainer, I see no reason his father would do a better job. There really is no room for improvement. He’s an ex-trainer for some reason. And after seeing Floyd Sr’s tactics in the 24/7 where he was Hatton’s trainer, I don’t think so.

Training him for what? Some possible fight against a hand-picked bum next summer and then one more the summer after that. I’m not interested in boxers that are retired in all but name

Floyd Mayweather Jr throwes away pressuse prime time on nothing recent years so he is sure a waste of tallent boxer.

Floyd who? Who’s Floyd ha ha ha dont no, ask Marquez, Ortiz, Cotto, Oscar, Hatton, Mosley, Judah. I’m sure Gatti and Carrales would also tell u who he is. He’s the guy that’s no.1 pound 4 pound

Uncle roger is cool cause he at least pays for his crack when he picks it up. Senior is always askin me to front the crack for a couple days, then he doesnt call and it turns into a big mess. Roger should stay the trainer cuz he pays for his rocks

I actually think it’s better for Uncle Roger to train Mayweather, unless of course Uncle Roger has health issues.

It really dont matter on the trainer Floyd was his uncle or father is for moral support The Ghost used alot of hitting and holding on Berto and hr fell for that crap and got out brawled floyd will beat the ghost easily and outbox him, I would like to see him fight Bradley instead even though Bradley cant hit it will be more competitive or even fight Alverez Ghost is a easy payday..

Boxtra- I know you study the p4p rankings as much as anyone here. Would you rank Guerrero over Abner Mares, Chris John, Golovkin and Froch? The guy’s barely making the top 5 WWs.

i think just strategy wise it could be a good thing bringing him in but thats it. Let him watch some tape with floyd to come up with a gameplan or just to look for openings and patterns his son can expose. but leave everything else the same its been workin perfectly for a long damn time unfortunately. oh and peej is absolutely rite bout berto’s trainer, what a waste of space!

Floyd Sr. and Floyd Jr. in the same corner on fight night !!!! Wow !! the fight would turn out to be in the Mayweather corner ,both son and father would engage in blows during the rest period …

Congrats to Floyd for reclaiming the UNDISPUTED #1 P4P spot!! Congrats to Broner for making #5 P4P! Also Congrats to Guerrero for making #10 P4P and to Ward for making #2 P4P!!! OH also a congrats to Marquez for making #3 P4P!! GREAT job guys!!

Then he loses. I never really blame the trainer when someone loses. Floyd fights the way he fights but his father knows that style better than anybody so it would make for the best fit for that style. But if Floyd loses then he loses. Just like Pac, I don’t blame Roach for that loss. Now I will say that someone whom does need a new corner is Andre Berto. His is just a mess

Posted December 13, 2012 11:09 pm

Since he’s been on the decline ever since the Marquez Fight I doubt it. But he is still the BEST in the game though.

I’d like to see the Mayweathers back together again, but even more than “Money” needing his father, the RNC (Republican National Committee) needs Floyd Sr. help. Floyd Mayweather Sr. is the Great Communicator who could help Republicans reach out to the people. With Floyd Sr. assistance, the Republican party could be ready for the 2016 election. Without Floyd Sr. there isn’t much hope for the Grand Old Party. Reince Priebus better get on the phone to Floyd Sr. now!

In a word: no. It’s all about the egos between those two. The clashes between them would be detrimental to the training camp and if the iron fist and the chest pumping worked when Jr. was growing up, those days are over. There’s no room for a dance partner in Money’s life, he’s a solo artist. Plus you can see the love and respect he has for Roger. Those are intangibles that go beyond Xs and Os. And btw, Roger is a fine strategist and teacher. Maybe Floyd is losing a step, maybe he felt he could trade with Cotto a little. At any rate, I don’t remember Cotto landing any flush punches anyways.

Also Hatton wasn’t even training properly. He was coked out missing training. That will not help you in this business

Actually this may be exactly what he needs to keep his skills sharp. Noboyd trains like the Mayweathers and they have a special pad work that helps with what Floyd does in the ring. Roger and Floyd Sr are really the only trainers that Ive seen work the pads that way. And lets not forget it was really Floyd Sr who tought Floyd most of what he knows. Roger just kept it all up and fined tuned. Floyd Sr is probably the only man that could train Floyd

It too late in Mayweather’s career to even make a difference. Mayweather has all the training and skill development completed for his career. At this point it’s all about getting in shape, and getting his timing down. Any trainer, he can get along with will do fine.

pflogmarten

no, is true. despite crazy conflict seen in 24/7 (which in ring did not matter) change here is ok and likely benieficial ebb and flow. night and day. activity and rest. these are great alternations–each is needed. we forget this and want only one thing–more more more!

but this cycle of change will help little floyd–”i ain’t no junior” he declares or states on prior show–who is clearly complicated character despite “street level jive” arrangement of media profiles–not necessary improve? but maintain this ability and functions. let his “friend” fifty renmibi wander and roam! let the arguments toil and bubble! from past, this is not only not distraction, but part of the mix that, in some ways unfortunately, but other ways comfortin, are “home” to this modern-day pugilist from GRR.

is merely two cents from point of view.

Sr didnt do so well with Hatton.

He already has 1 of the best skill sets ever and is probs the hardest worker ever. Nothing at this stage in his career is going 2 make any difference at all.
