Tim Bradley
Tim Bradley has been mentioned as a potential opponent for Floyd Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather Sr has warned unbeaten American Timothy Bradley that he should steer clear of facing his son Floyd Jr despite securing an impressive victory over Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas.

Bradley had already defeated Manny Pacquiao and came out on top in a war with Ruslan Provodnikov earlier this year, leading many to question whether he could be a future opponent for pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather.

The 30 year old from California earned a split decision victory over Marquez and immediately turned his attention towards fighting the very best in the world in order to seal his reputation as one of the all-time greats.

Having already defeated future hall of fame fighters Pacquiao and Marquez, Bradley has been mooted as a potential opponent for Mayweather in 2014 but he has been warned to steer clear of the five-division world champion.

Asked why Bradley stood little chance, Mayweather Sr told hustleboss.com: "Floyd's faster. He's quicker. He's more knowledgeable. Look here, all you got to do is look who is in the corner now. My son knows what his Daddy is talking about. Tell him a little bit and it will bring out a lot.

"If he does fight him it better be in the future and he better try to make it last because he's still got a gap on my son. That's a good generation gap he's got. He's 30 years old against a man who is six [years older] but the man who's six years older is going to whip his a**."

There has been a suggestion that Mayweather could face Britain's Amir Khan in his next fight and it is clear that the Mayweather camp believe this would be another easy victory.

Khan was due to fight Devon Alexander on 7 December but that fight has fallen through with the American now facing Shawn Porter instead. This has left the Brit without an opponent and talk of a clash with Mayweather has increased.

And Mayweather Sr believes this would be the perfect fight, as Khan would stand no chance.

"All those tough guys and champions that Floyd fought over the years. I think Floyd deserves an easy a** fight like Amir Khan. I want Floyd to tear his a** out of frame."
