Mayweather Sr. Predicts De La Hoya will Knock out His Son

Unread postby Guest » Mon Jun 05, 2006 9:20 pm

I would love to see this fight happen.
I still can't see it going down though.

From Doghouseboxing.com
In an interview conducted by David Mayo of The Grand Rapids Press, Floyd Mayweather Sr. is convinced his son (Floyd Jr) will get hurt if he fight Oscar De La Hoya. The Senior Mayweather who trains Oscar, last month said he wouldn't participate in any bout against his son, has had a changed of Heart.

Mayweather Sr told The Grand Rapids Press in regards to training Oscar to beat his Son: "I was trying to be a father by not going through with this thing. I hate to do it, I don't want it to happen, and I never wanted it to get this far. But I'll tell you something, if Oscar talks to me now about fighting my son, and if he comes up with the right digits for me, to where I'm comfortable with it, the fight is on."

Mayweather added: "That's something I don't want to do. I've been trying to avoid it. But mark my words, my son would get hurt. Oscar may take a few punches, but Floyd is going to get stopped in the fight, because I'm going to make it happen. It's 12 rounds. At some point, he's going to get hit. And if he gets hit and hurt, the fight is over."

"I taught my son everything he knows, but I didn't teach him everything I know. I'm the one who created the style, I'm the one who can break the style. I know just how to open it up, believe me. That's what the fight would come down to, whether I can break the style. And if I have to show you, and if Oscar puts the right money on the table, I grant you it will be broken.""

According to David Mayo's interview, Mayweather Sr. change of heart came last week at his mother's home, when his son showed up by chance. but his Son declined to enter the House when he found out his Father was inside.

Mayweather Sr. wants 2 Million to help Oscar defeat his son. He is predictiong his son will get knocked-out.
