FLOYD MAYWEATHER SR:

"Amir Khan is tall for nothing, man. He has no jab. How a man that tall fighting at 140 pounds don't have a jab? His trainer don't know how to teach a jab. Name me one of Freddie Roach's fighters that have a jab or defense...Amir Khan fights like a wash woman, man....And another thing, if anybody watched Pacquiao's fight with Marquez and thinks Pacquiao can beat Lil Floyd, they crazy as hell. Lil Floyd would run Pacquiao out of the game...Pacquiao can't touch Lil Floyd. If Marquez was able to do that to him, not once, not twice, but three times...Lil Floyd will run Pacquiao out of boxing, man. They know what would happen to him," stated world-class trainer Floyd Mayweather, who shared his thoughts on the recent performances of Amir Khan, Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, and much more. Check it out!

PC: What's up Big Floyd? How you been?

FM: Everything is good, man. I'm out here in Oklahoma with my fighter, Lydell Rhodes. He fightin' another guy from Oklahoma on Thursday, so I'm in the barber shop with him right now.

PC: Good luck to you guys Thursday night my man.

FM: I appreciate that Percy. We gonna take care of business.

PC: I got an email from a fan and he had an interesting question he wanted me to ask you. Given Antonio Margarito's eye situation and his lack of defense to protect that eye, if he was to come to you, would you train him?

FM: Man...um...let me tell you man, the thing with Margarito is, he ain't never done anything to me. I don't have any situation with Margarito. He would just have to come sit down and talk with me, but yeah, I don't have any problems with Margarito. I'm not saying he's looking to leave his trainer, but that's just to answer that fans question.  But I gotta tell you man, Miguel Cotto looked good in that fight.

PC: Yeah, I thought Cotto looked really good in that fight too.

FM: Yeah, he moved well and he hit Margarito with some nice shots to get that eye closed early in the fight. He fought really smart. Did you watch Amir Khan's fight the other night?

PC: Yeah man. I was just about to ask you what you thought about that fight.       

FM: That was a good fight, but I thought Lamont won it though. That referee, I don't give a damn what nobody say man, that referee gave Khan several warnings about pushing Lamont and pulling his head down. But it was a good fight. I had Lamont winning though.

PC: Khan was actually targeting Lil Floyd. That plan seems to be on the backburner for now and he's aiming for a rematch with Peterson.

FM: Man, he better be hunting for a rematch with Peterson. Lil Floyd would tear his ass up. Amir Khan is tall for nothing, man. He has no jab. How a man that tall fighting at 140 pounds don't have a jab? His trainer don't know how to teach a jab. Name me one of Freddie Roach's fighters that have a jab or defense? Khan got hit with a lot of shots to the body and upside the head, man. My question is this, how a man that get hit with that many body shots still have the legs to move as much as he did? I ain't never seen that shit, man. Khan and Pacquiao fight just alike, and Freddie Roach ain't teaching them shit. Look at how Khan fights, man. He's tall as hell for the division and don't even know what a jab is, and he bends down a lot and makes himself shorter. And then he gets hit with every punch in the book.

PC: So it's safe to say you weren't impressed (laughing).

FM: Nobody was. Man, I was at the Hall of Fame thing and two guys from the UK came up to me and was telling me how they thought Amir Khan couldn't fight. I told them dudes I could train them for 2 or 3 weeks and they could fight like Khan, shit. Amir Khan fights like a wash woman, man. He don't put shit together. And another thing, if anybody watched Pacquiao's fight with Marquez and thinks Pacquiao can beat Lil Floyd, they crazy as hell. Lil Floyd would run Pacquiao out of the game. I tell you what though, after watching the Marquez fight, the test is a must. I think he fought like somebody coming off of something. Pacquiao can't touch Lil Floyd. If Marquez was able to do that to him, not once, not twice, but three times, what the fuck do they think Lil Floyd would do to him? Lil Floyd will run Pacquiao out of boxing, man. They know what would happen to him. But his last performance lets me know the test is a must. The proof is in the pudding. Look how he looked in his last fight (laughing). That's all you gotta see.
