After this Sunday’s megafight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao,Floyd Sr. wants his son to retire.
In a recent interview, Floyd Sr. is persuading his son to retire after Saturday night. He stated:”I hope he walks away after this fight. This is a gambler’s game and I don’t think Floyd should be gambling too much.”
He also added: “Once you reach that pedigree and make that kind of money, you don’t have to fight no more. Whenever you get in that ring, anything can happen. It looks easy but it ain’t as easy as it looks. He makes it look easy.”
Floyd Jr. retired briefly in 2008 but returned 21 months later in May 2009 to fight Juan Manuel Marquez. He also retired in July 2007 but returned to the ring to fight Ricky Hatton.
