In other fitness ish:
With his highly anticipated bout against Manny Pacquiao only two weeks away, 11-time world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. opened the doors to his own Mayweather Boxing Club yesterday for an open media workout.
Boxing fans, get ready for this inside scoop on Floyd’s training expertise:
The fight itself is expected to go down in history as the most-expensive match EVER with Floyd earning about $120 million and Pacquiao getting $80 million! In a press statement about all the hype, Floyd said, “This is going to be an exciting fight. Our styles are totally different. He is very, very reckless. Every move I make is calculated. I’m always 5-10 steps ahead of my opponent.”
During a recent feature story, Floyd admitted to Yahoo Sports that he doesn’t enjoying training as much as he used to…but he enjoys the lifestyle that the sport provides him.
“It is at a point where it is business. It is my job. I go to the gym. I train. I know what I have to do. There was a time when it was fun but I am to a point now where I am really over all of that stuff.”
His sparring partner for the exhibition was his Uncle Roger (who managed to keep up pretty nicely for an older gentleman).
In addition to Uncle Roger, Floyd’s workout was also attended by CEO of Mayweather Promotions Leonard Ellerbe and his trainer/father Floyd Mayweather Sr. During a candid moment, he even revealed the “Mayweather” game plan. “I’m pretty sure my father has a great game plan so we can go out there and do what we do best. Our game plan is to be smart, be first, take our time and get the job done.”
Did you know that Floyd’s training session are so intense that the Nevada State Athletic Commission conducted an investigation in September 2014 after several fighters complained about 31-minute training rounds, alleged battery, assault and false imprisonment? Hmm…Is Floyd Sr. training his son for the boxing ring or B613?
Check out the intensity here…
After the match…
Although the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight will be watched by millions of viewers around the world, Floyd plans to have a decidedly quiet post-fight evening. He told TMZ that after the match, he won’t hit any afterparties (Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj & Jay Z have all announced events), but he’ll wind down with his family…and count his money.
