Mayweather Sr.: Manny Pacquiao 'can't whoop Floyd on his worst day'

The Mayweather clan has never been inclined toward humility. And Floyd Mayweather Sr. is no exception.

The crew over at FightHub caught up with the elder Mayweather ahead of his son's clash with Andre Berto this Saturday night (Sept. 19, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. And the outspoken Floyd Sr. did not mince words about rival Manny Pacquiao.

"Pacquiao can't whoop Floyd," he said after presenting a couple of hypothetical scenarios where Pacquiao couldn't whoop Floyd. It's safe to say he's not sold on the whole shoulder deal.

Senior also offered his thoughts on the upcoming showdown between former Mayweather challengers "Canelo" Alvarez and Miguel Cotto, which will take place on Nov. 21, 2015. He picked the former to win, citing his overall boxing skill and calling him the best Mexican boxer since Oscar de la Hoya.

Remember, MMAmania will deliver LIVE "Mayweather vs. Berto" coverage of Saturday's event, starting with the Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) broadcast at 8 p.m. ET.

Just a few days left and we've got complete coverage to carry you through the weekend. Keep it here, Maniacs.
