Majority of the Mayweather men in boxing probably sees eight-division title holder Manny Pacquiao secretly as a threat to Floyd Mayweather Jr that they would hit the Filipino champ whenever the opportunity arises.

Floyd Mayweather Sr, the father of Money May, recently belittled Pacquiao's coach Freddie Roach, while Floyd Jr echoed his father's outlook and had written off the Filipino champ from his list of future ring opponents.

On Wednesday, Money May's uncle and former trainer, Roger Mayweather, said that Puerto Rican boxer Miguel Cotto could now be more dangerous to his nephew than Pacquiao, reports Badlefthook.

Ironically, Cotto is also under the wings of Roach now. Roger pointed to two straight victories of Cotto under Roach's tutelage as proofs, particularly his win over Sergio Martinez in nine rounds for the WBO middleweight title.

"Cotto got more ability, he's a better puncher, he's a brilliant guy. He's a brilliant puncher. Pacquiao has nothing of those movements," Roger said.

Pacquiao won over Cotto in 2009 in 12 rounds, but Roach has said no to a rematch between his two trainees who have actually grown out of each other's weight class.

But in the case of newly minted WBO junior welterweight champion, Chris Algieri has expressed willingness to meet Pacquiao's weight class, making him a possible opponent of Pacman for his scheduled Nov 27 bout in Macau.
