Roger Mayweather: “I believe the fight with Manny and Floyd should happen”

Although the fans have fervently demanded a fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao for 2015, it’s still a mystery as to how the pound for pound king truly feels about the match-up.

Despite achieving underwhelming PPV numbers in his most recent outing against Chris Algieri, Floyd’s former head trainer and Uncle, Roger Mayweather, insists that a fight between his nephew and Pacquiao should happen next year.

In a recent interview with Chris Robinson of HustleBoss.com, the former WBC Junior Welterweight Champion was surprisingly forthcoming regarding the suggested super fight.

“He deserves the fight,” Roger Mayweather told HustleBoss.com in the attached video interview.

“Manny Pacquiao deserves the fight because he’s had some good wins, and it’s one of the biggest fights that people talk about.”

“I think the fight should happen. Pacquiao’s been on the top for a good while, so the fight should happen.”

Compared to previous statements made by the “Black Mamba”, the sudden endorsement of “Pacquiao/Mayweather” sounds like the senior member of Team Mayweather has had a genuine change of heart. This could be interpreted by fight fans everywhere as a very positive sign that the fight of fights will indeed take place in 2015.

While Roger now believes that the proposed mega fight should indeed take place sometime soon, does the always outspoken member of Team Mayweather have a different opinion on the fight’s eventual outcome as well?

“The same thing I said he was going to get the first time, he’s going to get it this time.”

Flashback to a statement made in front of the always-inquisitive Vegas media during the week leading into Floyd Mayweather's comeback fight against Juan Manuel Marquez on September 19, 2009.

“Man, if that dude gets in the ring with Floyd, he’s going to get his a$$ whooped…period,” stated Roger Mayweather concerning a fight with Manny Pacquiao to media members at the MGM Grand during fight week, circa September 2009.

Let’s hope fight fans finally get to see what would happen if these two titans met in the ring next year.
