“I want to apologize for both trainers for coming up here and talking about things that are not important. The trainers don’t have to fight. It comes down to the two fighters. I want to commend (Mayweather CEO) Leonard (Ellerbe) for carrying himself like classy guy,” he said.

It was a tame affair between the fighters, but it was their trainers who went at it in lieu of their guys.

“I reflect back on when (my father) had Ricky Hatton and he faced (Manny) Pacquiao and he got up here and talked all the stuff for Ricky Hatton and we see what happened,” Floyd Jr. said.
