Bombshell: Floyd rips Roger!
Undefeated five-division world champion Mayweather dropped a bombshell during his international media conference call advancing his upcoming WrestleMania 24 match against the seven-foot, 441-pound Big Show. Mayweather (39-0, 25 KOs), stated that he was disappointed in his trainer/uncle Roger Mayweather for accepting the head trainer position for Steve Forbes, who will be fighting Oscar De La Hoya in May. "I asked Roger not to train Forbes," said Mayweather. "If Forbes beats Oscar De La Hoya, then money is being taken out of my pocket...I fully disapprove...if it happens, I'm going to have to move on and get another trainer."

Forbes axes Roger!
Former world champion Steve Forbes has replaced trainer Roger Mayweather. Forbes hired Roger's brother Jeff Mayweather as his trainer for his big May 3 HBO fight against Oscar De La Hoya after Floyd Mayweather Jr. told reporters he would fire Roger if he tried to help Forbes beat De La Hoya, which would torpedo Floyd's big money rematch against the Golden Boy in September.

Personally I do not think Steve Forbes would beat Oscar even with Rogers help.
