"I don't remember him ever taking me anywhere or doing anything that a father would do with a son, going to the park or to the movies or to get ice cream," he says. "If it wasn't for me he wouldn't be where he is today," he maintains. "It wasn't like I left him with strangers." In the absence of his father, boxing became an outlet for Mayweather."I always thought that he liked his daughter (Floyd's older sister) better than he liked me because she never got whippings and I got whippings all the time." Mayweather's father contends that Floyd is not telling the truth about their early relationship. As the elder Mayweather served his time, his son put all of his energy into boxing and dropped out of high school.
Mayweather was born with his mother's last name, but his last name would change to Mayweather shortly thereafter."People don't know the hell I've been through," he says. My life was ups and downs." His father says he knows how much pain his incarceration caused his son, but insists he did the best he could.
