MAYWEATHER SR. SAYS PACQUIAO STILL NOT READY FOR FLOYD; MUST GET PAST GUERRERO OR CANELO FIRST

"He ain't ready for that yet. Manny ain't ready for that. He's not ready. He wasn't ready when he was doing it; when he was doing his thing, he wasn't ready. Now, with what I just seen the other day, Floyd would do him the same way he did Rios. It wouldn't be no difference," stated world-class trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr., who isn't convinced that multi-division world champion Manny Pacquiao is now ready to face his son, undefeated welterweight and jr. middleweight champion Floyd Mayweather, following his dominant unanimous decision victory over Brandon Rios. As far as Mayweather Sr. is concerned, Rios is far from the type of challenge that Pacquiao needs in order to determine if he's truly ready to face the pound-for-pound king after being knocked out a year ago by counter-puncher Juan Manuel Marquez.

"Not what I seen the other day. That's not a challenge. I'm being honest with you. I don't see that as being a challenge," Mayweathe Sr. explained to ProBoxingInsider.com as he discussed Pacquiao's performance against Rios. "I don't call that redeeming himself. I'm just saying, I don't think that's going to redeem just to fight somebody like Floyd. He might can do that and maybe go fight Alvarez or Guerrero...if you whoop one of them, it's time to get it on. I know that's what he better do if he plan on having any kind of chance; he better whoop one of them."
