Mayweather Sr doesn't want Floyd Jr fighting Martinez...

    Floyd 'Money' Mayweather.                           Sergio 'Maravilla' Martinez.      

For many fight fans out there today, the biggest fight that can happen right now is WBC middleweight champ Sergio 'Maravilla' Martinez against the pound-for-pound king Floyd 'Money' Mayweather.

Martinez has been considered as a pound-for-pound contender for a very long time but his recent win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr cemented his place as one of the greatest fighters of this era and proved just how good he really is. Mayweather is widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters of all time and without doubt the No.1 fighter in the world today.

Despite all of this, Mayweather's former trainer and father Floyd Mayweather Sr does not want the fight to happen.

"Personally, when people talk about Martinez fighting him (Floyd)... I'm not saying my son can't whup him, because I've seen my son box big cruiserweights before in the gym, but when you got to put smaller gloves and stuff, you know, I don't think its a good idea," said Mayweather Sr.

"He's still fighting outside his weight class by fighting at 47 (welterweight), because really, Floyd can make 140. So really, to be honest, he shouldn't fight anybody much bigger than that. He doesn't need to fight Jr middleweights."

"I don't think he should be just fighting guys, just because... It's not safe. He's done enough already. There ain't nothing he got to prove."

Don't worry boxing fans! There is still chance of this fight happening... If it was Roger Mayweather that had said this then I would say that it was very likely that we would never see this fight. But that's because Floyd Jr listens to him. I know 'Money' May will always love his father and respect him but he doesn't actually care much for what he has to say. So therefore, there is still hope that we may one day see the fight that everybody desperately wants to happen. The chances may be slim, but we still have hope!
