Floyd Mayweather Sr not sure about son's future after Maidana fight

Floyd Mayweather Sr says he's not certain that his son will fight on, but says he'd be OK with a rematch with Marcos Maidana.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

"It still was a good performance, probably wasn't one of his best, but it was a good performance. Floyd showed one thing, Floyd showed that he can fight the guy's fight, if the guy don't think he can. Because Floyd fought Maidana's fight tonight. Floyd didn't fight his fight. But, next time around, you'll see."

On a rematch: "I think it's very important that it happens. If that's what they want, my son says, if that's what they want, that's what they're gonna get. ... If Floyd wants a rematch, or if (Maidana) wants a rematch, I think they should do it."

On Floyd's future: "I tell you this, if you wanna be honest with me, sometimes we don't know ourselves. Sometimes we don't know ourselves. We get to an age and we don't realize it. After seeing the fight today, Floyd showed that he was a strong individual, but I don't like him getting hit."
