    Floyd Sr. kept dissing Pacquiao but grew irritated when asked about Hatton loss. Watch VIDEO

    Apr 29, 2015

    LAS VEGAS - Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has been surprisingly tame by his own standards in the run-up to the May 2 (May 3, Manila time) fight against Manny Pacquiao, but that doesn't hold true for Floyd Sr.

    Mayweather Sr., who is also his son's trainer, rarely passes up an opportunity to diss Pacquiao or his longtime trainer Freddie Roach and Tuesday was no exception, belittling the Filipino boxer's skills as well as his chances of inflicting a first loss on Floyd Jr.

    Floyd Sr. said he wasn't even concerned about the fight and insisted that Pacquiao was by no means the most dangerous fighter his son has ever faced.

    He already sounded irritated when asked about Mayweather's past struggles against southpaws. 

    “Why is everybody telling about Floyd (having troubles) fighting southpaw? He beat down all their asses. He fought A-list southpaws and beat their asses. What’s your problem? That Floyd can’t fight no southpaw,” said the elder Mayweather, raising his voice.

    “He (Floyd) is going to beat Pacquiao the same way … but worse,” he confidentaly declared. “Pacquiao is gonna get his ass whooped up!”

    However, the elder Mayweather's tone and demeanor completely changed when asked him about Briton Ricky Hatton, who went down in two rounds against the 'Pacman' in one of the Filipino ring hero's most impressive victories of his career.

    Hatton, incidentally, was trained by Mayweather Sr. for that fight.
