Roger on Floyd layoff

Floyd “Money” Mayweather is coming back after nearly a two year lay off against Juan Manuel Marquez on Sept 19th, but trainer Roger Mayweather doesn’t think Floyd’s inactivity will be a big problem. “Well I know one thing about layoffs and I know about fighters. If a fighter got skills – the greatest fighters in the world where people don’t even know had layoffs. What did you think Sugar Ray Leonard had? He had a five and a half year layoff. He had two eye detached retina surgeries, right. But he still beat the greatest middleweight. He beat Marvin Hagler when he was laid off five and a half years. When Sugar Ray Robinson was laid off three years, that’s the greatest fighter on the globe. Muhammad Ali was laid off three years,” said Roger.

“So Floyd ain’t going to be the only guy that’s been laid off in boxing. Most of the great guys – great fighters have something in common. They were all laid off anyway.  All of them who were good, what they called great, they all had layoffs and they all still had spectacular performance when they fought. So guy keeps asking about how you laid off, when you laid off. Fights are won by skill. That’s all there is to it.”
