FLOYD Mayweather Sr. said he would be “shocked” if his son loses to Manny Pacquiao on May 2 (May 3 Manila time).
“I’m gonna be honest with you. That would be a big ...” said Mayweather Sr., when asked by David Mayo of MLive.com what he will feel if his son loses to Pacquiao.
“I have to say it would shock the (expletive) out of me. It would shock the hell out of me. But you have to live on, man,” added Mayweather Sr., who is also training his son for the big fight in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Floyd Jr. will go to the fight against Pacquiao holding a 47-0 win-loss record. At this point, Floyd Sr. said losing isn’t really an option with the stakes this high.
“I just feel like when you get to this level, you’re making nine figures in 36 minutes, you have to be a winner.
“If a fighter lost before, losing is in the back of his mind. For me, all I’ve done in my career is win, so winning is always in my mind,” Floyd Sr. added.
Mayweather Jr. is deep in training with his father as he prepares to stake his unbeaten slate against Pacquiao.
Floyd Sr. said he doesn’t know how he will react his prized fighter loses to Pacquiao.
“I don’t know. I would continue to be myself. I would continue to be myself … and I would still deal with my friends and things like that,” said Mayweather Sr.
