As always, Floyd Mayweather Sr. makes the news with his nerve tickling promises and suggestions.

This time, according to, Mayweather Sr. promises that if Pacquiao takes the drug test, his son will be more than happy to fight him next.

Will Mayweather Jr. scold his father for making such bold and false statements without his son’s permission, or is this something that the Mayweathers have actually thought about and decided upon?

While it’s impossible to tell, I am hoping that Mayweather Jr.’s comeback against Ortiz is nothing less than a tune-up fight before facing Manny Pacquiao sometime next year. If Junior is able to decisively defeat and possibly even knock out Victor Ortiz (seems very unlikely but this is boxing after all), he will likely push Arum’s wallet a little further asking for a bigger payday.

We are all tired of listening and hoping for their bout to finally become reality, but there is a reason we are still all ears to everything that has to do with the two fighters and their drama-filled history: it’s too big and important of a fight to ignore.

So, do you believe Floyd Mayweather Sr.?
