If you were watching Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s fight against Robert Guerrero, you'd notice two things: his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., was in his corner and Mayweather Jr. barely got hit. Of course, Mayweather Sr, thought his presence correlated to the lack of hits his son took. The proud dad told this to reporters at the post-fight conference:
“If you’ve been getting hit all the time, then I come along and now you ain’t getting hit … what’s that telling you? It’s so plain to see Ray Charles can see it!”
The father/son duo had a rough relationship prior to this point, which led to a pretty crazy scene on HBO's 24/7 series, but it looks like they're on the same page on this one. Mayweather Jr. agreed his father made a difference: “My dad said, ‘I’m going to tell you what’s going to get him—the right hand,’ He said, ‘Yes, you can use the jab, but I’ll tell you what’s going to get him—right hands all day.’ So I went out there and executed the gameplan that was given to me.”
It's good to see the two on good terms, and hopefully scenes like this are a thing of the past.
