Floyd Mayweather Jr’s dad, Floyd Mayweather Sr, believes his son would comfortably beat Manny Pacquiao in any potential rematch.
The duo met in Las Vegas on 3 May 2015 with the American reigning supreme in what was the most lucrative match in boxing history.
Talk of a rematch is gathering momentum and Mayweather Sr has admitted he wants the showdown to happen.
“I’m pretty sure that they are gonna fight,” Mayweather Sr told TMZ Sports when asked about the prospect of the duo going head to head.
“If Pacquiao say he wants to fight, I’m pretty sure they’re gonna fight.”
When asked who would win, in a taunting manner, he added: “Man! My son will kick his ass the second, third, fourth, fifth [time]!”
Mayweather recently revealed he was paid a huge $2.2million to talk up a rematch against his Filipino opponent.
“There is a video circulating that I made eight months ago about a Mayweather vs Pacquiao rematch,” he said.
“I got paid $2,200,000 to make the video. The truth is, the fight will never happen again.
“Now, look at the money that got wired to me for the video.
“Who’s the smart one? I’m making millions just for 10 second video drops.”
Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach has previously admitted he’d love to see the two boxing heavyweights go head to head.
“I want that fight also,” Roach added.
“That’s why we are still here. I always thought that eventually Floyd would be one of our opponents again.
“I am still a bit embarrassed about the first fight.
“We didn’t fight how we can, Manny had an injury, it was just a bad fight.”
