FLOYD MAYWEATHER SR:

"It does feel good, man, and a lot of people are interested to see how things go now that I'm back in his corner. A lot of people, man. But my son can fight his ass off; ain't no doubt about that. We are gonna be ready... I don't have a problem at all with southpaws either, so Guerrero is gonna be in trouble if he thinks he's kicking my son's ass...We are not taking him lightly and we not playing, man. At the end of the day, my son will still be undefeated," stated world-class trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr., who talked about working with his son again, the upcoming May 4 clash with Robert Guerrero, and much more. Check it out!

PC: It's good to see you and your son Floyd working together again; long overdue, but it's here now.

FM: Long overdue, but not too late. That's all that matters, you know Percy, is that it's not too late.

PC: Without a doubt, and honestly, to see what you and your son have been through and to see you guys working together again, I don't think it could ever be too late.

FM: And you right about that, man. Every family out there has their issues. Our issues were just played out on the big stage, but no matter what happened, I have always said, at the end of the day, he's my son and I never want to see anything happen to him, and I meant that, man.

PC: It's gotta feel good to be back working with your son after all of this time. Can you remember the last fight you worked with him?

FM: It does feel good, man, and a lot of people are interested to see how things go now that I'm back in his corner. A lot of people, man. But my son can fight his ass off; ain't no doubt about that. We are gonna be ready. And you say the last fight I trained him…I believe it was Jesus Chavez back in 2001 if I'm not mistaken. It was a long ass time ago, I know that much (laughing).

PC: Obviously the sport of boxing has changed a lot since you last worked with Lil Floyd. Does that change anything as far as what you are trying to do with him?

FM: No, not at all, Percy. Let me tell you something man, a lot of the success my son has had is because he didn't change with times. My son never went and got all these conditioning coaches and all this shit, man. Floyd work hard, he puts the work in when he's in the gym, and he does his road work. His training is old school; he spars. These guys today flipping big ass tires and cutting down trees and shit, man…come on, man. That shit don't have nothing to do with boxing. So it won't change what we are doing at all, man. Not one bit.

PC: Robert Guerrero has been talking a very good game. He took to Twitter on Saturday night and said he hopes Floyd likes cornering fighters because he's going to make it his permanent job. And then he also said something like it's gonna be cool to kick his ass with his dad in his corner, or something like that; I'm paraphrasing.

FM: Now that is what's not gonna happen. I don't have a problem at all with southpaws either, so Guerrero is gonna be in trouble if he thinks he's kicking my son's ass, and like I told the reporter that came into the gym the other day, I don't give a fuck how old his daddy is, if he get out of line, I'll kick his ass. So my son gonna kick "The Ghost" ass and if his daddy get out of line, I'm gonna kick his ass. We are not taking him lightly and we not playing, man. At the end of the day, my son will still be undefeated.

PC: I hear you just got into the gym my man. I will let you do your thing. I appreciate the call though, Big Floyd. It's always good to get a call from you.

FM: It is what it is with us, Percy, you know that. We will talk soon. Take care of yourself now.
