"At this particular time, I'm thinking about working back with my father," stated undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather, who revealed that he strongly considering working with his father, world-class trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr., when he makes his return to the ring next year. According to Mayweather, his uncle and current trainer, Roger Mayweather, isn't quite as sharp as he once was due to his ongoing battle with diabetes. Concerned about his uncle's health, Mayweather is seriously considering making a change in his corner.
"He's not eating well; he's not healthy. I want him to get healthy and eat better so he can have a sharp mind, because his mind is not as sharp as it once was," Mayweather explained during a recent conversation. "Roger, you know, he's very, very sick at this particular time, so I'm thinking about working back with my father. We really don't know what the future holds for Floyd Mayweather as far as who's gonna be the trainer, but I'm leaning towards my father at this particular time."
Although they've had their ups and downs in the past, Mayweather doesn't believe there will be any problems working with his father so long as they can both agree on one thing. "My dad has to realize I'm an adult, you know. I just want my dad to accept and respect me as an adult. I think my dad, the thing is, he still looks at me as his 10-year-old son. I'm a lot closer to 40 than I am to 21, but I have a lot left in the tank and I want to go out there and give the fans nothing but excitement," he added.
