Mayweather Sr. Rips Amir Khan: He Looked Like Dog Sh*t!

 

By Mark Vester

 

On December 11 in Las Vegas, trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. was ringside for Amir Khan's close decision win over Marcos Maidana at the Mandalay Bay. Mayweather was less than impressed with Khan's performance. A lot has been written that Khan's skills have continued to improve since hooking up with trainer Freddie Roach. Mayweather disagrees. He feels Khan was a better fighter without Roach.

 

He felt Khan displayed very little boxing and mostly ran after dropping Maidana with a combination to the body in the first round.

 

"Man, I thought Amir Khan looked like dog sh*t. Everybody talk about how Freddie Roach made him a better fighter. Freddie Roach made him a worse fighter. He caught that guy with a nice shot early, but after that, all he did was f**king run. He was running for his life in there and he's lucky it wasn't a 15 round fight like the old days or you know what would have happened to him? He would have been stopped," Mayweather Sr. told Percy Crawford of fighthype.com

 

"Khan looked like sh*t man. Man, let me tell you something man, Freddie Roach ain't did nothing for Khan. He looked like sh*t. He would stand still and throw a few punches and then start f**king running again."

Getting a little tired of this Semi-retired, fight 3 times in four years, living off my Reputation Egomaniac offering his opinon on the rest of the Boxing World just because two or more weeks have passed since he saw his name in the Papers. We don't care what you think Floyd, how about doing something worth writing about, like staying out of hot water or how about this, maybe even actually climbing between the Ropes for a change.

Nice to see the Mayweather haters spewing out their usual drivel, when in fact its his OLD MAN doing the badmouthing. And who the f**k ever described standing in front of a guy, making him miss and punishing him for doing so as running. Did some of these fools who gob off about Mayweathers ability actually see what he did to Corrales, Hatton, Marquez, and Mosley, and plenty of others, or are they back in the school playground name calling?

+1... very well said McBride.

 

Some people are so blinded by morbid hatred so much so that they read what they wish to see into everything in print, which non-sense makes them come off as unintelligent in their comments... makes one want to puke. Hmm.

I'd agree with McBride in that PBF doesnt't run in the ring, its just his defensive skill set is much better than (IMO) all other boxers of his generation and because of this his opponents don't land a lot of shots which make his fights seem a bit one sided/dull some times. I just enjoy watching someone at the top of their game and I think boxing will really miss him when he's gone. Without Manny/PBF, I can't see another major 'once in a generation' fighter coming through atm? Apart from Degale maybe? :P

Great 1st post, Joe. Fair play.

 

I agree with McBride that PBF doesn't run - for me his defensive skills are impeccable. I am greedy as a fan and want to see the Welterweight Floyd fight proper Welters. He's a great fighter but for me not a Great Welter. Would he beat a Donald Curry, Sugar Ray Leonard or Thomas Hearns at Welter? - No and nothing on his resume suggests he would.

If you are going down that road Rob, then you have to admit that whoever he has fought it hasn't been at catchweight. When he fought Oscar for his L/Middle title, Oscar weighed in at 154 to Mayweathers 150. He fought the useless Baldo at 147. Hatton CHALLENGED him for his 147 crown.

 

Now compare the other fella.

 

So talk of fighting proper Welters is a bit wide of the mark mate.

 

The reality is, he has had 7 fights at 147 and above, 6 of those guys had previosly fought at 147 or above. As stated Hatton wanted the fight at 147, but by all means complain about Marquez, but i think we both know the result would have been the same whatever weight they had fought at.

He's three quarters of the way gone now and is boxing missing him?

 

When he "retired" at the end of 2007, there were boxing journalists and whoever telling Floyd to stay in retirement.

 

For the Marquez fight they were giving away free tickets as comps in the MGM because they couldn't sell out the arena.

 

Boxing miss Floyd? Not sure about that one.

Rob, he won't even fight a modern day legend, let alone past ones.

 

If Floyd thinks he's the king of psychological games, he wouldn't know what hit him if he went against Leonard in the press conferences!

 

And I know this name wasn't mentioned but Duran!

 

That guy got inside Leonard's head in the build up to the first fight and would make Floyd travel to another planet instead of getting in the same ring as him.

It so happened that the great Welters of the SRL/THearns/MarvelousMH era - particularly those with true boxing skills - were naturally much bigger than those of the present generation, so comparing the two sets in the manner you've done is not quite correct. Which "great" Welter of the present generation do you figure would have a great chance against PBF?

 

Also, let's not forget that, in the present era, PBF as well defeated those much bigger than him across different weight classes, including Welter, for example Diego Coralles, OscarDLH and Carlos Baldomir, the later being the Lineal Champion at the time in fact.

I can understand it that you as a person don't miss PBF's skills if you hate him or don't like his style, or you're from another planet. However, the REST of this planet (literally) IS missing him already. Why do you think there are so much calls on him everywhere for him to fight? Why do you think Pacquiao, Arum, Bradley, Martinez, Khan ALL are running after PBF to make money because fans would buy a fight involving Floyd Jr? Why is the press always pushing any little one-liner to the front that has to do with Floyd because the story would sell/generate clicks? They miss him already, that's why.

 

And who is the modern day "legend" you refer to that Floyd won't fight when such a "legend" had the chance? Are you a Pac hugger? I ask because your conclusions are simply hilarious, and Pac huggers are most voracious now seeing that PBF is reported to be in some troubling troubles for things outside of boxing - a sport that is itself not properly or morally governed anyway. Simply kicking a man while he as much as appears to be down. I'll not join The Anarchists, but would be one of the first to rule out of boxing reckoning, discount, dismiss, disown and condemn PBF if and once/when he is convicted by a competent court of law, until he would completely pay his due when convicted.

 

And just in case you're overlooking some aspects of history, SRL at some point was truly hated by the public especially when he retired for years rather than give Hearns a re-match. The same - for a different reason and under different circumstances as you probably know - happened to Ali. Here we are, several decades later, the gold standard for Welters is SRL for some. Just like for some, the gold standard during SRL's time was SRR.

 

'Nuff said.

I agree that Manny is no Welterweight aswell. Manny and all the catchweights is annoying and quite frankly ridiculous.

Both of them have fantastic skills and I want to see them face eachother, as I'm sure most boxing fans do. I think they are both Great fighters but real Welters like Hearns or Leonard would hand their arses to them.

147lbs has been the Welter limit for along time and that doesn't change because Floyd is there. If your gonna pretend to be a Welterweight then you are going to be compared to past Welterweights. Not say they are too big.

 

Which "great" Welter of the present generation do you figure would have a great chance against PBF?

There aren't any. When the division had the likes of Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito and Paul Williams - Floyd didn't fight any of them he fought the very average Carlos Baldomir.

Diego Coralles for you information wasn't a Welterweight. A good fighter but not a Welterweight.

 

Also Marvelous Marvin Hagler was a Middleweight not a Welterweight.

 

Also your statement that the old Welters were naturally bigger than todays is wrong. Fighters now make weight the day before, so by the time they get in the ring they weigh well above the Welterweight limit. In the 80's fighters weighed in on the day giving them less time to put on weight before stepping in the ring.

Provide me with this proof that people want to see him fight. I want to see it!

 

And don't give me that nuthugger bollox. Yeah, I meant Pac because his accomplishments are there for all to see.

 

He brings drama and excitement to the ring, something Floyd fails to do. Doesn't make me a "nuthugger" but that's the ingredients of a proper fighter.

 

Love how you question me to be a nuthugger but in the same sentence say "this modern day legend had the chance". That's a nuthugger sentence right there!

 

I don't care what the fighters want, I am talking about the fans and those that are outside the ring.

 

It's pretty obvious that Floyd is the $$$ king so it only makes sense for boxers to go after him.

 

The fact that in his *comeback* fight against Marquez that comp tickets had to be given to high rollers for free to make up the crowd says it all.

 

At least Leonard gave Hearns the first match!

 

Even just one terrific match that gets the attention of the globe is what boxing could do with now.

 

I'm not going to blame either Floyd or Pac for the loss because I think they have both behaved badly.

 

But from somebody who isn't a mug Floyd fan, deep down I always knew the match wasn't happening because this isn't the first time Floyd has ducked fighters, is it?

 

That "retirement" at the end of 2007 will forever hurt his legacy.

 

Not that Floyd cares because "skills don't pay the bills".

Thats what i love to see, someone who is so far up their own arse with their hatred of a fighter, they manage to argue with themselves.

 

And in the same post. mlol/ mlol/ mlol/ mlol/

 

Next you'll be trying to convince us that the reason Mayweather is the biggest money is because promoters and T.V. companies are charities, and thery just want to give him money.

You make good points too.

 

Pls note, though, that you're reading me out of context in some places; for instance, I never implied Diego was a Welter, I said "across weight classes." As for Baldomir vis-a-vis Margarito specifically, I would go for the Lineal champion myself, whether he was average or not, especially since there was more money on the table at that, which was what Floyd did.

I can't believe you accuse him of being a Pac-hugger while rewriting history at the same time to defend your favourite little wifebeater.
