Floyd Mayweather Sr., who recently rekindled his father/son relationship with Floyd Mayweather Jr., after many years of being estranged from one another, spent the last two weeks training his son for his upcoming battle on May 5th against Oscar De La Hoya. Mayweather Sr., who was De La Hoya's trainer until overpricing his services, is now also out as his son's trainer. Mayweather Sr. who is highly regarded and respected as a trainer, was working for free as a trainer to his son, but is being replaced by Roger Mayweather, his brother.


Roger Mayweather who was serving time in a Nevada jail for battery on his son's grandmother, was released on Monday and will settle back to his regular position as trainer to Mayweather Jr. Roger has been Jr's trainer since the late 1990's, and before that Jr. was trained by his father.

Mayweather Sr. was quoted by USA Today on the subject if he expects to be in his son's corner when Floyd Jr. fights Oscar De La Hoya. Mayweather Sr's responded with, "I don't."

Mayweather Sr. who recently was ousted by De La Hoya as his trainer and replaced by Manny Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, isn't angry about his brief two week training stint with his son. In fact the elder Mayweather has accepted that he more than likely won't be working his son's corner.

Quoted in USA Today, Mayweather Sr. said: "People say things, and people do things. But I've got no problem with my son. He called to tell me Roger was training him again, and I can respect that. The message he left was all positive. He said, 'I love you, you're a great trainer and I know we've had our differences, but I hope we can be father and son.' At the end of the day, our relationship is the most important thing. That's bigger than the fight."

I think we all knew this would happen it just happened about a week or two before I expected ( if you look about at my old post i figure about April 5th or so)as far as being a non-issue unless you have access to the training camp I don't think any of us can say for sure it is is our not an issue. The bad vibes have to be thick in the camp regarless of what face Floyd sr. and jr are trying to spin on it. and the fact that Shane is helping Oscar has to be a big deal for Roger the trainer.

DAMMM, Daddy was trying to get close and his cold Blooded son send him packing again why could'nd he have been second man on the corner ,who knows ,probably him and roger can get alone worth a dammm . The biggest looser in this tale seems to be Floyd SR no 2 million from DeLaHoya and not even a crumb from his own flesh and blood DAMMM maybe some will invite him to see the PPV

Sr. is fine. Floyd has been with Roger for years and Sr. was just helping out. He knew that Roger would be his cornerman regardless. If it aint broke don't fix it.

Floyd has yet to comment. He did however say on the day it all happened that there was no bad blood and he loved his father very much and that it wasn't a personal thing.

An interview is expected by Friday.

Ha me neither man. I don't think he will speak on it though. Usually when Floyd gets this close to fight night he limits his personal comments to the media and tends to speak only about the fight and talk sh*t.

However, I don't see how he can NOT say anything about it after all the previous occurrances. We'll see....

I dont care to much for Floyd, but hoppefully he and his father can put things behind them. I think it was a good thing that DLH didnt have SR train him. No way could I train someone to beat up my son, I don't care how much money I was offered.

Agreed. It would take a very ruthless man to do the likes. Haha, I know there's someone out there who would do it.

I was being sarcastic bro. I know for a fact he would have trained Oscar had he paid up. Sr. sold crack for many years. He is a f'd up guy but he knows his boxing. As the saying goes everyone has a price. Floyd just wants his self and his father to be just that. Floyd grew up with 6 other siblings living in one room together. I am in no way defending his actions just putting a little perspective to it.

All in all, the past is just that. So leave it at that.
