Floyd Mayweather Jr. has already retired, but his father thinks that the former pound-for-pound king will eventually return to chase the 50th win of his illustrious career.
Danny Garcia, the reigning World Boxing Council welterweight champion, is tipped as one of the possible foes for Mayweather if he decides to return. But can Garcia become a threat to Mayweather despite having a perfect record?
Floyd Mayweather Too Much For Danny Garcia
If he were to predict the outcome of a Mayweather-Garcia fight, Floyd Sr. thinks that his son will have a walk in the park. The elder Mayweather said that Garcia is a good fighter but is not in the level of the Grand Rapids native.
“We’d have to see about that, but I’m just telling you right now though. In the fight, Garcia gets beat,” Floyd Sr. told On The Ropes Boxing Radio. “You heard that from me. He might be a good fighter, but he is not as good as Floyd.”
Garcia, who defeated Guerrero for the WBC welterweight title in January, has previously expressed willingness to face Mayweather. The Philadelphia native holds a perfect 32-0 record with 18 victories by knockout.
Will Floyd Mayweather Return To Action?
While Floyd Sr. is quite sure that his son will eventually come out of retirement, Floyd Jr. is sending mixed signal. But in his latest interview, the younger Mayweather insisted that he is happy with his retirement and he wants to focus on promoting fights.
“I had a great career,” Mayweather Jr. said via Las Vegas Review Journal. “It’s good to be on the other side, helping young fighters achieve their dreams. So many young fighters that want to get to a certain plateau in the sport of boxing.”
Mayweather retired after scoring a unanimous decision win over Andre Berto in September last year. Before retiring, the Grand Rapids native posted a perfect 49-0 record with 26 knockout victories.
