Roger Mayweather, the Uncle and trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr., believes that future fights with Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley would be worth a whopping $200 million collectively for his nephew.
According to a recent report by Chris Robinson of boxingscene.com the world-class trainer said the following:
The fight with Floyd is Pacquiao. That’s the fight. He fights Timothy Bradley, he fights Pacquiao. He’ll make so much money. He’ll make close to $200 million.
Since his release from jail in August, Floyd has been pretty quiet about the future of his boxing career, but Roger seems confident that Floyd will fight again. Roger told Robinson the following:
He’ll fight a few more times. He ain’t took no beatings.
This is good news for fans of Floyd who have been on pins and needles wondering if the pound-for-pound Picasso would ever fight again.
Roger somewhat shockingly also gave Bradley some credit as a fighter which is rare for the outspoken trainer, but just as quickly he took it away:
Bradley’s a decent fighter, but he ain’t got sh*t for my nephew.
According to the article, if Floyd does fight Pacquiao and Bradley in successive bouts, Roger believes that would be the end of the road for his nephew’s brilliant boxing career.
Mayweather has made a lot of money in his career and was named Forbes Magazine’s highest paid athlete after earning $85 million in just two fights.
If the man they call “Money” could make $200 million in just two more fights, that would certainly be more than enough to ride off into the sunset with and call it a career.
