Whatever the reason, Mayweather and his world champion son, Floyd Mayweather Jr., have patched up their near decade long feud.“It's a very good feeling. It's been nine years,” said the 56-year-old Mayweather Sr. of reuniting with his son in and out of the boxing ring. “That's a long time. But we both got older, and we both used some common sense."
