rift started in when Floyd Sr. went to jail on drug charges in 1993, 3 years before he turned pro. Floyd Sr. came back to train him in 98 and was his manger aswell. In 2000 Jr fired pops as his manager and hired James Prince. It all went REALLY down hill from there, with Jr. canning Sr. as his trainer one fightlater. Sr.'s jail stint screwed up the chemistry they had as trainer & fighter, and JR. didn't like the pressure Sr. put on him to be perfect inevery aspect, which is why he went back to rodger.
^^^Sr's ego got in the way. Jr said he was gonna stay loyal to Roger as his trainer because of all they accomplished and the chemistry they had, and Floydcouldn't handle that his son was choosing someone else as his trainer. Floyd then bounced.
