"I thought Manny Pacquiao did good with him, and I'm speaking of that particular fight. I think that Manny Pacquiao did good with him because to me, Brandon Rios can't fight, to be honest. Those are my honest opinions. From what I just saw from him, I don't see no skill, I don't see no knowledge of boxing. I think that Manny looked very, very good on him," stated world-class trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr., who shared his thoughts on Manny Pacquiao's dominant unanimous decision victory over Brandon Rios this past Saturday. As far as Mayweather Sr. is concerned, the limited technical skills of Rios allowed Pacquiao to easily have his way in the fight; so much so, in fact, that his performance reminded him of two recent performances by his own son, undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather.
"Manny moved when he wanted to, touched him when he wanted to and Manny was doing everything. Manny was giving side angles, cracking him; I mean, dude just, to me, he didn't win a round. I think the fight was a total shutout," Mayweather Sr. explained to ProBoxingInsider.com. "It wasn't no problem with this guy because this guy never did really hit; he never really hit Manny with anything. Manny was slippin' and slidin'. Manny was looking like Floyd. Manny was looking like the way Floyd looked over Alvarez and Guerrero. That's the way Manny looked against him. He didn't look like no fighter that was in the top 10 ranking, period."
