When Angel Garcia, father and trainer of Danny Garcia, watches Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Ruben Gerrero work their sons’ corners on Saturday, he will “watch for who can stay focused, and who can keep their son focused right along with them.”
RING junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is expected to be ringside for Saturday night’s clash between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Robert Guerrero at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s father, Floyd Sr., says he’d be down for a fight against Robert Guerrero’s father/trainer, Ruben, who has referred to the Mayweathers as “clowns.”
Robert Guerrero on Floyd Mayweather: “He’s not that big. Floyd’s not like Andre Berto, who, I mean, was just bulked up and huge. But you’ve got to respect Floyd, because, I mean, he’s fast, he’s slick and he’s smart and he’s a mastermind in the ring.”
Advisor Leonard Ellerbe: “Manny Pacquiao can’t tell Floyd Mayweather [expletive].”
Freddie Roach on Manny Pacquiao’s out-of-court settlement with the Mayewathers: “It’s something I don’t want to get in the middle of. That’s between them.” On Amir Khan: “You can’t teach a good chin in boxing.”
Alex Ariza considers it to be “a huge compliment” that rivals believe his fighters’ success, including that of Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan, is a result of performance enhancing drugs.
Roger Mayweather: “We’re not worried about beating Pacquiao in a fight. That’s the easy part. “He take that test, he would have gotten his a– whipped a long time ago.”
Floyd Mayweather Jr.: “I’m going to finish you off.” Victor Ortiz: “I’m going to put you on your (butt).”
Roger Mayweather: "I said, 'your daddy's out [of jail], you go and train with him. Now if things don't work out between you and your daddy, then you just come back to me."
Floyd Mayweather Sr.: "That stuff don't mean anything to me. That stuff happens all of the time with us."
Heavyweight contenders Alexander Povetkin and Robert Helenius made big statements on Saturday night in Germany. Meanwhile, the Mayweathers' sad family rift was exposed for everyone to see on HBO's 24/7.
