'Pacquiao better off facing Floyd'

MANILA, Philippines – The trainer and uncle of Floyd Mayweather Jr. has thumbed down talks of another Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez even as he claimed that the rivalry between the two boxers is getting old.

Roger Mayweather, who is credited for molding Mayweather Jr. into a highly skilled defensive fighter, said Pacquiao-Marquez IV is already pointless.

“For what? They don’t need that bull---t,” Roger told The Examiner.

The boxing trainer said Pacquiao would be better off fighting a “real boxer” like Floyd Jr.

“They might as well sit back, relax, and let my nephew whoop his ass. Then he’ll know who the truth is, that’s it,” said Roger.

The boxing trainer, however, seems to have forgotten that Floyd Jr. has repeatedly eluded a super-fight with Pacquiao.

Floyd Jr. is currently serving a three-month sentence at the Clark County Detention Center after pleading guilty to a domestic battery charge.

Roger said Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa has erred in denying Floyd Jr. his motion to be transferred to house arrest.

“The [expletive] ain’t a criminal. I don’t know why they don’t give him house arrest privileges. I guess they want him to do time to make him feel like he’s in a cell block. That’s the only thing I could see,” he said.
