During the 200th edition of “On The Ropes” boxing radio, Floyd “Joy” Mayweather Sr. made his 25th appearance on the show and gave his thoughts on the question most fans want to hear answered, who is the next opponent for his son, Mayweather Jr? Senior touched on the possibility of a Danny Garcia fight, and if he thinks Garcia poses any kind of threat to his son. Mayweather also gave his honest views on who he thinks will be next and why he believes it will be none other than former light welterweight champion, Amir Khan. Additionally, Floyd expressed his feeling on a catch weight fight with Bernard Hopkins, and also a middleweight title challenge against Sergio Martinez. Here is what Floyd Mayweather Sr. had to say in part 1 of his interview. (originally posted at doghouseboxing.com)

JENNA J:

It’s been a few weeks since your son beat Saul “Canelo” Alvarez by majority decision. What are your thoughts now?

FLOYD MAYWEATHER SR:

Well I think the fight was fantastic, I think Floyd did just like I said he would, using him like a sparring partner, that’s all he was. He was no more then a sparring partner.

JENNA:

Your son said in the post fight news conference that he did not feel that he did everything in the ring that he could. Did you see anything he could of done better?

MAYWEATHER SR:

I’m going to tell you this right here, I think it could of been better, only cause I know that what my mother told me and she said he did not go to bed till 3 o’clock, It’s not an excuse, but I’m just saying if he got more sleep than he did, I’m pretty sure he would of did even better. I’m just being honest, Canelo got whooped solid, it was a straight out whopping and nothing else. Matter of fact, I’d like to maybe when my son retires, I would like to train that man (Canelo) and show him what the game is all about.

Mayweather is really picking easy opponents like Amir Khan.the best fighter out there for Mayweather is Danny Garcia.look why he picked Canelo?because Mayweather have seen some Canelo’s weaknesses during Canelo-Trout fight.why he picked Amir Khan in his next fight?because Amir Khan doesn’t belong to an elite level of fighters.Mayweather knew that Khan has no chance for his JR.Mayweather wants only huge payday for this fight.

Here they go again. Looking for the other man after another. Already their tenth picks. So that the Fight w the one he must only be fighting that everybody wants since 2009 will be gone.

Another way to escape from the Pacman. I couldnt believe how chicken the Mayweather camp is. If I’m in the Floyd self, even at the same night, I will fight the Pacman & Amir Khan.

Amir khan is a B fighter should not get to fight Floyd.
Manny,Danny,Sergio, I just don’t see anybody else
