In one of the funnier stories in recent weeks to come out of the Mayweather camp, Floyd's uncle Roger had some interesting thoughts about Floyd Mayweather Sr. reportedly taking over training duties for Victor Ortiz.

“Who gives a f***?” Roger told Chris Robinson of BoxingScene.com.

“Victor Ortiz ain't sh*t anyways. He got his *ss whooped. His *ss would still get knocked out by my nephew.”

The comments come amid reports that Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar de la Hoya had reached out to his former trainer, Floyd Sr., to begin training the ex-champion.

Mayweather Sr. said he was open to the idea but first would need to discuss the monetary terms of the arrangement.

“Everything depends on how I’m getting paid, man,” Mayweather told Robinson.  “I’m not going to leave where I am at already and go and get lesser money. I can’t do that. It’s what is best for me.”

But if you listen to Roger Mayweather, it doesn't matter who trains Ortiz.

“My brother can train him all he wants to,” said Roger. “It’s the fighter that has to go in that ring. I don’t give a f*** what you teach him.”

Ortiz was defeated by Josesito Lopez in June. The fight, which was a prelude to a much bigger event against Canelo Alvarez, was stopped when Ortiz broke his jaw.

He is currently 29-4-2 with 22 knockouts.
