Default R. Mayweather interview.

Quote:
21.06.07 - By John Martinez, BoxingRealm.com: Earlier today I spoke with famed trainer and former world champion Roger Mayweather about his nephewís (Floyd Mayweather Jr.) prospects against current WBA welterweight titlist Miguel Cotto and former three divisional champion ďSugarĒ Shane Mosley should they meet in the squared circle in the near future. What was supposed to be questions for predictions quickly became a discussion of just how little he believes that [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] scribes know about boxing. Here is what he had to say about the match ups, boxing scribes, and even Mike Tyson.

JM: What are your thoughts on Mosley vs. Mayweather? I ask this because recently one writer wrote that Mosley ď has the speed, the power, and raw athleticismĒ to beat Floyd.

RM: You know what? He donít know what the f*ck heís talking about. The last fight that Mosley fought with Delahoya, he got his ass whooped. Howís Mosley gonna deal with Floyd when he really lost to DelaHoya the last time they fought? The fight with my nephew and Oscar wasnít even close, but the second fight with Mosley and Oscar was close. I personally had Oscar winning in that one.

If Shane is so gifted in hand speed, then why was the second fight close and a loss for Shane against Oscar even though the judges gave it to Shane? You know, certain dudes write about boxing, but they donít know sh*t about fighting. If youíve never fought, then you donít know what to look for. Oh everyone thinks they know boxing, but most of them have never been fighters.

I wanna talk about the rematch with Oscar real quick. Why is Oscar not wanting to fight Floyd again? I know. He knows he got his ass whooped thatís why. When he lost to Felix Trinidad he wanted a rematch for years, but you donít see him saying he wants a rematch with Floyd now, do you? Now getting back to Shane and speed. People gonna write that Shane can match Floyd with speed. No way. Speed has nothing to do with it. Skill wins fights.

Those guys writing that sh*t donít know nothing about boxing. It ainít about how tough you are or how bad you are. Itís about skills. Skills will take the offense away from your opponent and allow you to counter them. You can be fast and swing all day, but you may not land sh*t so it donít count in the end. Now for Mosley, all he has to do is come with the right money and you can get what you want. If Shane wants some, then OK. Money makes fights and thatís it.

JM: Who are some of your heroes in and out of the ring?

RM: Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Robinson. Those two are the most skilled fighters in the world because they know boxing. George Gainford trained them. He knew how to get the best out of them. You see, a trainer is the eyes of the fighter because heís looking at the whole program. He knows how to motivate his fighter and how to draw up a game plan for him. I know my brother is a great trainer and I think that Freddie Roach is a decent trainer. I know that. Look at DelaHoya. He knows my brother knows how to train but even though he made $50 million he didnít want to pay my brother $2 million. He got greedy and look what happened.

JM: Alright, letís talk about another possible match up for Lilí Floyd. Some people think that a Cotto/Mayweather fight might resemble the Leonard/Hagler fight. What are your thoughts on this?

RM: Wait a minute. How the f*ck did Leonard run laps aroung the ring without hitting the mother f*cker and winning? You got to understand that hereís a guy thats crazy anyway because he took 5 Ĺ years off without a fight, had two detached retinas and took on the baddest motherf*cking middle weight out there at the time and beat him easy. That just goes to show you that whoever wrote are said that, they donít know sh*t about boxing. You know what Leonard said after that fight right? He said that after the first few rounds he (Leonard) knew he had him because he was easy like a six round fighter. Thatís what he said about Hagler.

JM: Well letís get back to Cotto. If they were a fight between Floyd and Cotto, do you think that there would be some type of stipulation in regards to the size of the ring?

RM: What difference does it make if Floyd decides to dance, box, or fight? Floyd donít got to fight him in an 18 foot ring. A ring size donít win fights anyway. Floyd is the champion. You got to understand that some people are always gonna have something personal against someone that talks and talks about their ability to win.

Remember this, when [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] came on to the scene, he talked all that crazy sh*t, but when he got his ass whooped by Buster Douglas, he got his act right. OK, then he got a couple of wins again, and then he starts talking that sh*t again. Now all of a sudden, he faces Evander Holyfield and he gets his ass blazed again and the next time they fought, he quit like a f*cking coward? And what happens then? He quit talking that sh*t.

Now forget about those ass whoopings from Holyfield and Douglas, he comes back to fight those white dudes and oh he got the dog sh*t whipped out of him. I said oh know he got his ass beat by a club fighter. So, my point is he fell faster than he came up. He had all these knockouts and didnít have a whole lot of miles on him, and he was washed up and beat by a damn club fighter after all that talking. But you know what? People didnít mind him doing his talking.

JM: Well who do you think is a better fight, Cotto or Mosley?

RM: Cotto is easier. He ainít nothing but a one handed fighter like Oscar DelaHoya anyhow. All heís got is a left hook and thatís it and Iíll tell you that Shane would beat Cotto easy too.

JM: One last question, how do you see the Margarito/Williams fight unfolding?

RM: Well first of all who the hell is Paul Williams? He ainít sh*t. Iíve seen him before and he throws a lot of wide hooks and no one knows who he is any damn way. I believe that Margarito will win and should win, but he too as problems in his skills that he needs to work on. So, itíll be Margarito.

JM: Roger, thank you for your time and I look forward to talking to you soon.

RM: Thank you.

Talk about not being shy in saying what you feel? Is there anybody, apart from his nephew, who Roger does not make deragetory comments about?

He wants to be careful Tyson doesn't knock him into next week!

I wonder if team Maywather knows just how pathetic and desperate they sound chasing a rematch with Oscar.

The first fight wasn't even close, I beat him easy, I would whip him even easier the second time.

Please oh please Oscar give me a rematch.

If ODLH thought he won he should chase a rematch with PBF and get his arse kicked again by the smaller man.

I love the Mayweathers they are very entertaining.

this fool doesn't know what the hell he's on about.. Tyson was always going to have a short boxing career due to his size, he relied very much on his speed and agility to be such a great boxer, take that away from him and he becomes nothing, Tyson was always going to have a short explosive career,as opposed to a decent lengthy boxing career, and FYI , he actually beat Douglas with his 1 punch uppercut, PROBLEM WAS referee WAS TOO DAMN SLOW TO count, any1body reading this go watch the fight, and tell me if DOUGLAS IS NOT DOWN for at least 13 + seconds...this guy is not a trainer, he's a bum

Oscar is 34, past his prime and hs been fighting the best for almost 15 years now. If he wants to retire now or take one easy farewell fight, that's his right at this point I think.

Floyd sounds like a desperate puppy chasing a rematch for something that he thinks was an easy fight and says will be even easier the 2nd time around. Not a single person is stupid enough to believe that he is up to anything other than cashing in on Oscar's name one more time. If he is as big a draw as he thinks he is then he should be able to make money on his own name and get off of Oscar's nuts.

not really. i mean if i could get that much money off of one fight. i'd go after a rematch too regardless of how easy it was. personally i'd rather he fights Cotto or Mosely. but i can't blame the guy for going where the most money is.

It's understandable and not surprising (not just money hungry Floyd doing this, but any fighter chasing a big money fight), but still dissapointing as a boxing fan.

There's much more intriguing matchups possible at 147.

He slipped those Cotto comments, MASTERFULLY


**** Floyd, **** his rematch with DLH, and PBF will QUIT talking shit after he takes a stretch run vs the best comp of his ERA and gets his little ass whooped


All the guy's Rog talked about were actually willing to face the best, EXCEPT FLOYD

I like how Floyd continuously tries to convince the public that he's retired while his uncle/trainer says nothing about it and just talks about who Floyd will beat and why.
