Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao ‘Gonna Happen,’ Says Mayweather Sr.

Word just broke that Floyd Mayweather Jr’s father, Floyd Maywether Sr. said in an interview with FightHype that the long-time dream fight between Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao is “gonna happen”.

“Man, I’m pretty sure that if don’t nothing else happen, I’m pretty sure he’s gonna get Pacquiao, it’s gonna happen. That fight’s gonna happen. Trust me. That fight’s definitely gonna happen. It’s a fight for the world, man, right there. It’s the biggest fight that has ever been in life, so like I said man, that fight’s gonna happen. I’ma tell you right now, he never told me the fight’s gonna happen, but I’ma tell you, the fight’s gonna happen. You mark my words…Pacquiao is tailor-made for Floyd. He’s tailor-made to eat the right hand all day long.”

Mayweather, 37, has an unblemished record of 47-0. He only has two fights left on his contract with Showtime, and the general public is assuming that the first fight of the two remaining fights on his contract will be against Amir Khan, and the second and final fight of his contract, and possibly his career, will come against Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao, 36, has a record of 56-5-2, and has lost two out his last four fights, one by way of decision to Timothy Bradley, and one by way of knockout to Juan Manuel Marquez.

With Pacquiao losing twice in the recent past, and due to the fact that this fight, if it does happen, will be happening about six years too late, it doesn’t seem as hot as it once was. However, Mayweather is a monster pay-per-view draw, and by the time the fight is about to happen, boxing fans will surely begin to get excited about it again.

Mayweather was asked after his most recent win over Marcos Maidana on September 13 about a potential fight with Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather said the following.

“Let’s make it happen. Pacquiao needs to focus on the guy in front of him. Once he gets past that test, let’s see what the future holds.”

Manny Pacquiao is set to face the undefeated Chris Algieri on November 22, in Macau, China, on HBO. If Pacquiao can win in impressive fashion, then a fight with Maywether will certainly be something to get excited about.
