Mayweather Sr. wants to train Adrien Broner

broner9991Floyd Mayweather Sr. says he saw Adrien Broner’s fight last Saturday night against Marcos Maidana, and he doesn’t believe Broner can go anywhere in the sport with the skill-set that he currently has. Mayweather Sr. sees too many flaws in his game for Broner to get to the next level, but he thinks he can fix the problems in his game and take him to the next level.

“I can train him to where no one will be able to hit him at all,” Mayweather Sr. said to Hustleboss. “I’m very interested in [training him] it, but he’s got to be interested.

It definitely could happen.

Pacquiao doesn’t think it will, but then again this is the common response for fighters that have been knocked out like he was. They often think they can go back in the ring and fight like they did before the knockout, but many of them quickly find out that they can’t take heavy shots like before without getting knocked out.
