Mayweather vs Berto - Floyd Mayweather Sr: Pacquiao "was one of Floyd's easiest fights"

Floyd Mayweather Sr. kept up his winning ways with another golden interview at the Mayweather Boxing Club.

When it comes to interviews, Floyd Mayweather Sr, like his son, is always a treat for hopeful journalists. True to form, he had some real gems in a recent interview at the Mayweather Boxing Club.

When asked the seemingly simple question, "do you think Berto is an easier opponent than Pacquiao," the elder Mayweather had this to say: "Man, Pacquiao . . . I think that was one of Floyd's easiest fights. And he's talking about a rematch. Rematch who? Who in the hell Pacquiao gonna whoop? Nobody."

Continuing, Floyd Sr. insisted that Pacquiao had no say when it comes to a potential rematch: "Listen. Pacquiao don't control nothing. He gonna fight who Floyd want him to fight. He can't do nothing. He's a dead man right now, in a grave."

Despite practically daring all of Floyd's "haters" to purchase the fight because "they want to see him lose," Floyd Sr. still couldn't pretend that Berto is actually a stiffer test for Floyd than Pacquiao was. "Berto might [dominate Pacquiao], but he won't do that to Floyd."
