Floyd Mayweather Sr. is never one lacking in confidence. But he's been steadfast from the beginning in his belief that his son will dominate Manny Pacquiao on May 2nd.

"I feel more comfortable with this fight than with any fight that he [Floyd Mayweather Jr.] has ever fought. Pacquiao is not even in my son's class...period. You can dot the i on that."

Senior then goes on to say that Floyd has been battering all 10 of his sparring partners during training and all the other typical training camp bluster. When asked about his prediction for the fight, he threw out a stoppage prediction saying that Manny is liable to go down at any moment in the fight.

A lot of people also feel that this fight is being set-up for a rematch, but Senior says their isn't a rematch clause for a reason, and that after May 2nd no one will be asking for a second helping.

"I don't think people will want to see a rematch. The can of whooping that Floyd will give, there will not be another rematch. There won't be another fight."

"...that would be like Sonny Liston whooping Joe Louis. That would be like Muhammad Ali whooping the bear...you know?"

Maybe Ali whooping the bear is a but of a stretch, but if there is a one-sided thrashing from either side the demand for a potential rematch could quickly dissipate.
