Well, it appears that Floyd Mayweather Sr. will be training his son for the upcoming May 4th bout.

What are your thoughts on this development ?

Something about this doesn't sit well with me.

I'm a big fan of continuity, even for a fighter who is such a master of his craft, that he hardly needs any kind of instruction other than words of encouragement between rounds.

I'm a little worried that Big Floyd may try and step into the picture much more than Roger did. Think about how connected you feel when your siblings or kids are involved in any kind of competition.

I just don't want Floyd to get distracted, especially if there's a big moment in the fight, and he gets into it with his Dad at the corner.

I would have been much more at ease if Floyd chose Jeff Mayweather to train him instead.

Your being a little bit too cynical. Sr has been waiting in the wings for a decade. Plus Floyds not a kid anymore. Do you really think Srs gonna waltz up in the gym and boom, " hate this, hate that, change this, change that?" They only have 8 weeks or so. How much could he change Floyd really?

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) LMAO @ "hate this, hate that, change this, change that" Like some sort of interior decorator.
